Need to upgrade

posted 5 years ago

The people at this place are nice and I guess they're making the best of what they have out of the building, but they could do better work. It seems like they're so desperate to adopt any animal out to anyone who walks in the door, doesn't matter if the critter is a good match for the person or if the person will take good care of the critter. No one interviewed me or asked for references, and there wasn't any temperament testing done on the pet I adopted. Nobody ever called to follow up and make sure things were working out, either. I felt more comfortable adopting in Bangor where they were thorough and seemed to care.

Pros: trying hard, dedicated staff

Cons: behind the times, old facility

A Caring Shelter

posted 7 years ago

The C.A.H.S. is a haven for animals who are stray or abandoned. They are lucky if they end up there! The management and staff is excellent and very knowledgeable. They know the personalities of their residents, and do a wonderful job at matching the right people with the right pet.
The shelter is clean and the cages themselves are kept very tidy. The animals are cared for both emotionally and physically. I can't say enough about the Central Aroostook Humane Society!
I think that anyone who is looking for a loving pet for their family should check this humane society out! I have four special pets from there, if that tells you anything!!!!!

Pros: The care each animal receives is wonderful

Cons: The shelter could use more space and a larger budget
