Humane Education & Outreach
Let us talk to your class or office about what we do here at the shelter. We are ready to answer all questions you have. We may even bring a furry friend with us!
Let us come to you! We will send a volunteer or staff member to you to represent our organization at your event with a table filled with reading materials to learn about BHS.
Dog’s Day Out (THIS PROGRAM IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD DUE TO COVID. PLEASE KEEP CHECKING BACK!)
Want a dog but know you aren’t ready to care for one of your own? Borrow a shelter dog instead! We welcome community members to come by during business hours to take a dog out for the day to do whatever you would like.
Go for a hike in Acadia, explore the city forest, or head to your house for an afternoon nap! No training necessary. Click here to learn more about DOG’S DAY OUT.
For Scouts, schools, or anyone interested, tour BHS! We show you the ins and outs of our building to understand how we save 3,000 lives every year!
Fast Track Volunteer
While interacting with animals is always an exciting form of volunteering, one of the most crucial things anyone can do to help is our grunt work. From dishes to laundry, there is so much to be done. We invite the public to come to help us with it all! No training necessary.
To learn more about any of our humane education and outreach programs, please contact our Volunteer & Community Outreach Director, Chelsea Brown, at [email protected] or (207) 942-8902 ext. 1028. We look forward to working with you!
