Thanks for helping Big Mike
Our most sincere thanks to everyone who donated toward Big Mike's medical care. We were able to get him the transfusion he needed which cured his anemia. Sadly, his kidneys are still failing so his time with us is drawing to a close despite our best efforts.
Mike was adopted by his foster mom so he is happily living in a loving home with two other cat buddies. Thanks to your generosity he is receiving the special care he needs to keep him comfortable along with lots of special treats to tempt his appetite. His last days will be spent surrounded by love and kindness.
Alert - Contact your state representative and demand that they defeat LD1239!

When It's Hot
When hot weather is upon us, please take extra care to keep your pets healthy. If you have outdoor animals, make sure that they always have access to shade and drinking water. Make sure indoor pets also have access to cool areas and plenty of fresh water to drink.
NEVER leave any pet locked in a vehicle in the sun, even if the weather seems cool. The interior can quickly heat up and suffocate your pet (40 degree increase in less than 10 minutes). If you see an animal in a locked car, even if the windows are open a crack, notify the local police or animal control officer. In Maine, the law allows these officials to remove any animal from a hot car. This includes EMTs and firefighters. Read more about outdoor pet care.
