The ARLGP continues to be closed to public visitors due to COVID-19. Please use the information and links below to access our services and programs during our closure.
If you are interested in adopting an animal, we are able to do adoptions by appointment.
If you need to surrender a pet and live in one of our contracted towns, please call us to set up an admissions appointment at (207) 854-9771.
PET FOOD PANTRY
If you are in need of pet food to provide meals to your animals during this time, our Pet Food Pantry is available daily from 9am-4pm. To access our pantry, please call us at (207) 854-9771 at least 1 hour before you plan to stop by to tell us your name and what supplies you need (please leave a voicemail in our general voicemail box containing this information if nobody answers your call). Our staff will get your supplies together and leave them with your name on them on a table outside our ADMISSIONS/CLINIC entrance on our lower level.
DONATIONS OF PET FOOD ARE ALWAYS NEEDED
Donations of pet food are always needed, as we support both animals in the shelter and families in need of assistance through our Pet Food Pantry.
