Featured Pet

This beautiful girl is Mardi! She is looking for an adult only home and needs to be the only animal. She really enjoys spending time with her humans and staying active. She is best suited for a medium to high energy home who enjoys frequent walks, hikes, and being on the move. But don’t let that fool you – She enjoys cuddling as well! She likes curling up with her person! Learn more about Mardi.

Lyman Pope and Max

Lyman Pope, Jr.

Longtime philanthropist Lyman Pope, Jr. donated $1 million to build the new shelter. With his gift, we were able to move forward and build the new shelter, and in his honor, the organization will now be known as Pope Memorial Humane Society – Cocheco Valley (PMHS-CV). On behalf of the animals, staff, and volunteers at PMHS-CV thank you, Mr. Pope, for your generous gift to our new shelter! Click here to read the full press release. 

Is your dog or cat having unplanned litters?

We can help! Through our Mother Spay Program, we can assist you with the litter and get mom spayed!

If your female dog or cat is expecting or just had babies, we can help. Once the litter is weaned, we will spay the mother at no cost to you and find homes for all the little ones if you admit them to our Adoption Program. Mom will stay with you, her spay surgery taken care of! By spaying mom, you ensure no more unwanted litters and you improve your pet’s quality of life and health.

By surrendering the kittens or puppies to PMHS for adoption, you remove the stress of trying to find home for them yourself. Like all pets in our Adoption Program, they will be spayed/neutered, receive veterinary care, vaccinations and preventatives. ALL of this is at no cost to you.
