Remember the Maine tax checkoff for spay/neuter funding!
Income tax time is right around the corner and there is an easy way to help animals in Maine and the people who love them: the tax check-off on our state tax form that partially funds Help Fix ME, Maine's state-wide low-cost spay/neuter program. A new law removes any tax check-offs that do not reach a certain threshold of contributions. The funds this check-off supplies are vital for Help Fix ME.
The check-offs are “buried” on Schedule CP of the tax form so folks have to know to look for them. For this reason contributions have been decreasing so we are working to get the word out. It is a "use it or lose it" situation.
Black goes with everything!
We always have lots of terrific black cats looking for loving homes because it is a common color for cats and not a favorite with many people. Our selection includes (but is not limited to!) those pictured below. Please visit our Petfinder page for more details and more wonderful black cats!
Reasons to Adopt a Black Cat:

- Black cats are the most fun to play hide and seek with.

When It's Cold
When cold freezing weather is
upon us, please
take extra care to get your pets in at night. If you have outdoor
such as rabbits, etc….please be sure that they have extra hay
straw for warm bedding and twice as much food and water. Be sure to
the water often…it is very hard to drink a solid block of ice
are thirsty. Dogs and cats should NOT be left out for extended periods
of time. If it is cold for you waiting with a coat on, imagine being
all night without one. Animals left outdoors suffer frostbite and can
a horrible, painful death from exposure/heat loss. Read more about outdoor pet care.
