Featured Pet

This handsome guy is Ace! He is looking for a home with children 12 and older and he must be the only animal. He really enjoys spending time with his humans and staying active. He is best suited for a high energy home who enjoys frequent walks, hikes, and being on the move. But don’t let that fool you – He enjoys cuddling as well! He likes curling up with his person and being wrapped up in a warm blanket next to them. Learn more about Ace.

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.
