Welcome to Bangor Humane Society

Every match made is a life saved.

The Bangor Humane Society is a nonprofit organization serving over 200 communities in northern and eastern Maine since 1869. We strive to facilitate the human-animal bond by re-homing and rehabilitating homeless pets with humans through pet adoption. Our staff, volunteers and community partners work hard every single day to provide quality care to animals and offer second chances by matching our pets into new, loving homes. We strongly believe that every match made is a life saved. 

We know our efforts on behalf of the animals would not be possible without our supporters. We work hard daily to be good stewards of your generosity. Your donations allow us to do our life-saving work. Your on-going charitable contributions not only enable us to fulfill our mission every day but also allow us to develop new ideas to help our animal friends. Your volunteer time supports our staff and helps us do more and is directly helping us save more lives. Your support and concern for the animals we all love helps us continue our mission.

Whether you are an adopter, volunteer, foster parent, community partner, or donor, thank you for being a part of our BHS family!
