They do a lot with a little

I give a lot of credit to the hard-working folks who run this shelter. Somerset County is one of the poorest areas of Maine, and the shelter serves a large area. I know many people who have adopted animals from the shelter and have been very happy with the animals which they were given. I have had the unhappy experience of picking up a stray beagle on one occassion, and finding a mother cat and three kittens living under my back deck on another occassion. On both the occassions my experience bringing the animals to the shelter was very good. The people there accepted the animals, and I found out later that the animals had been adopted into new homes. It is a blessing to have the shelter, for both the strays and the people who want to adopt a family pet. Winter is a particularly difficult time at the shelter with the added costs of heating and plowing. I hope people will remember to support the Somerset Humane Society with monetary donations, and volunteerism.

Pros: Caring staff do a great job with very limited resources

Cons: Cramped quarters; they do euthanize some animals

have heard good things about them but also I know that the Vet-Dr. Patterson works there and he is a wonderful veterinarian and would do anything to help an animal.

Dr. Gibson is very nice and makes clients feel important and their animals special. Two thumbs way up for him.
