In an abundance of caution, Midcoast Humane is closing its facilities to the public, effective Monday, March 16 at noon. That includes our shelter at 30 Range Rd in Brunswick, our administrative office at 190 Pleasant Street in Brunswick, our intake facility in Edgecomb and our Creature Comforts thrift store in Boothbay Harbor. Facilities will remain closed until an update is provided.
Our top priorities remain the health and safety of our staff and animals. While we are closed to the public, we will continue to provide the best possible care for our animal guests, maintaining a clean, safe and healthy environment in every way. On the bright side, these closures will provide our staff with even more opportunities for extra walks and playtime with all of our animals!
Please note the following practices will be underway until further notice:
SURRENDERS We will continue to accept surrendered animals from people that live in our contracted towns. However, if you are able to keep your pet at this time, we ask that you do so to prevent extra strain on our staff. We expect to receive animals in cases of emergency, and will need to focus our staff efforts on those animals most in need. If you need to surrender your animal as an emergency case, please call us at (207) 449-1366 x208 to schedule an appointment.
ADOPTIONS We are closed to the public, but are performing dog adoptions by appointment. For more information and to begin the adoption process, click here. Please watch our website and facebook page for updates as this may change.
DONATIONS Food and non-clumping, unscented cat litter can be dropped off at 30 Range Rd in Brunswick. Items from our amazon wish list are in great need and can be purchased online and delivered directly to our shelter. We cannot currently accept donations of linens, toys or other gently used items at any of our locations until further notice.
EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS Every pet owner should create a preparedness plan for their animals in case of owner illness or hospitalization. Click here to see our list of ways to prepare.
PLEASE TAKE CARE OF ONE ANOTHER by checking in with family, friends and neighbors, particularly those that are most vulnerable. Some ways you can help are by providing pet food if needed or offering to house pets should their owners become sick or hospitalized.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this crisis. We will be thinking of you and wishing you the best. Please give your pets some extra love from us! We will be doing the same with the animals at our shelter. Together, we will get through this and return to normal operations as quickly as possible.
