Founded in 1911, the SPCA of Hancock County, Maine, is a life-saving organization committed to providing shelter and care for abandoned, stray and surrendered animals. Since opening the doors of our expanded facility in Trenton in October 2010, our organization has found homes for thousands of dogs and cats.
We are also focused on community outreach and education on proper and humane animal care.

August is Immunization Awareness Month! When it comes to our pets’ health, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure – essentially, it’s easier and more cost effective to stop something from happening in the first place than to repair the damage after it has happened.
A big thank you to everyone who joined us on Tuesday, July 18th for a fabulous evening celebrating the animals with delicious food, a cash bar, live music, silent and live auctions, and a paddle raise.
This event helped us raise essential funds to continue life-saving work, all while celebrating with a community that is passionate about the welfare of local animals.
Some of the many stories of pets who have found their forever homes
You can make a difference
Cody is a sweet older boy (16 years old!) in need of a quiet and calm home.
We don’t usually see much of him during the day. He prefers to hide in a dark, cozy spot in his cage. We know he comes out at night to explore and have a snack, though!
Cody is just in shock. He was in his last home for most (if not all) of his life, and he suddenly found himself here at the shelter. We’ve given him some time to come out of his shell, but at this point, he may only truly relax once he’s in a real home environment. He doesn’t mind being held, but he gets a bit anxious in a new room with lots of space. Fair enough, Cody! Wide open spaces can be scary. Sometimes you just want to curl up under a blanket on the couch, and Cody prefers to do this every day.
If this gentle older boy is your speed (or lack thereof!), send in an application for Cody. Senior cats like Cody have discounted adoption fees because they’re often overlooked for kittens or younger cats. But Cody needs a cozy home for his golden years, too!
