Freeport Attracts Four-Legged Shoppers To Help Find Forever Homes
Visit Freeport and Midcoast Humane have joined forces to help make life better for animals and people in our community. With help from Visit Freeport business members, the partnership is helping nearly 3,500 homeless animals find their forever homes in their new program, Pet-Friendly Freeport.
Freeport is one of Maine’s most pet-friendly communities with more than 40 member businesses encouraging guests to bring their four-legged pals along to campgrounds, hotels, bed & breakfasts, restaurants, shops, farms, parks, and breweries. Pet-Friendly Freeport takes it one step further and encourages Freeport business to contribute to Midcoast Humane to become a featured “Pet-Friendly Freeport” business.
Visit Freeport members contributing $100 or more to Midcoast Humane are invited to display a store window sticker to let customers know that their pets are welcome and they are shopping with a business that financially supports animal welfare in our community. On your next trip to Freeport, look for the Pet-Friendly Freeport logo in windows and at the check-out counters of your favorite stores.
Pet-Friendly Freeport is just the first of many planned collaborative efforts from the two new partners. Watch for updates on adoption events during some of Freeport’s biggest festival weekends and educational efforts to make Freeport Maine’s best destination for Fido and his family— all in support of Midcoast Humane’s exceptional work in making life better for animals and people in the communities they serve.
