Take a Minute. Save a Life.
We provide medical attention, care, and love to nearly 4,000 pets every year between our Edgecomb and Brunswick facilities. It is with your help that we are able to do our life-saving work, and offer services to pet owners in our community. While adoption fees and town contracts provide some much-needed income for our organization, the cost of providing shelter, food and medical care to the pets in our care far exceeds what these sources bring in. Contributions from caring people like you ensure that we are able to care for, and find homes for, so many stray and homeless pets every year.
Here are some of the ways you can make a difference for pets:
MAKE A DONATION NOW Make a donation quickly and securely online. Your donation will start supporting shelter pets right away. You can also donate in memory of or in honor of a special person, pet, or event. You can also mail a gift to us at 190 Pleasant Street, Brunswick, Maine 04011, donate by phone at (207) 449-1366 x109, or visit any of our locations to make your contribution in person. Midcoast Humane is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. Your donation is tax-deductible in accordance with IRS guidelines. Our Federal Tax ID is 01-6021200.
DONATE SUPPLIES We always need things – especially canned cat food and canned dog food as well as dye-free, high-quality dry food. Every bit helps, and it’s one less thing we need to spend money on. See our complete Wish List
SPONSOR AN ADOPTION Help one of the pets in our care find their forever home by paying or contributing to their adoption fee. Make a sponsorship donation here.

SUPPORT THE MEDICAL NEEDS OF THE PETS IN OUR CARE The Columbo Fund helps us cover the cost of caring for dogs’ non-routine surgeries and procedures. A single orthopedic surgery averages $2,000! Our Medical Fund helps cover medical needs of all the pets’ needs.
