How Can I Help


The Houlton Humane Society operates on the slimmest of shoestring budgets, and we raise 60% of our annual budget through financial support from the community. 80% of our donations are $20 or less.

What to give someone who has everything? Consider an’ Honorary Gift’. We’d be delighted to send a card to the recipient, with our thanks for the donation in his/her name.


Did you know we sell high-quality nice Lupine leashes and collars? We also sell:

sweatshirts & t-shirts
pet odor candles, room sprays
fabric freshener & car fresheners
“Mutt Nose Best” brand of shampoos, conditioners, & other great products.

Host a fundraiser

Having a birthday or retirement party? Let guests know that you are collecting donations for the shelter. This is an easy way to gather supplies for animals in need.


We rely on volunteers to keep the shelter open! If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Heather Miller! From clerical and telephone support to cage-cleaning and animal exercise, we have a job for you!
