October was certainly a mix of temperatures, ranging from lingering summer days to pre-winter chills. Mostly, we enjoyed the beautiful autumn days we love here in Maine with lots of dog walking and outdoor time.
As October, and National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month concludes, here’s a look back on all that happened at the ARLGP!
238 animals were adopted and reunited!
- 21 dogs were adopted into new, loving homes
- 85 adult cats and 84 kittens found their purr-fect match
- 5 rabbits and small animals hopped out to new households
- 43 stray animals were reunited with their owners
We also kept pretty busy…
- We celebrated Halloween and our year-long partnership with Sephora with a Canine Spook-Tacular event, raising almost $800!
- We promoted our Country Kitties program on National Feral Cat Day.
- Aztec, our resident explorer and FIV-positive feline, made a trip to the Portland Press Herald to say hello.
- Our annual Holiday Fund Drive began, to raise much-needed funds for homeless and displaced animals in our community this holiday season.
- And, we continue to move forward on our plan to build a new shelter facility and adoption center to serve our Greater Portland community.
We hope you had an equally fun October! We’d love to see you at the ARLGP soon.
