If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude,
then animals are better off than a lot of humans.

What's New Pussy Cat?


Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. we will be at the DECA Fair at the Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School. This is a big craft fair not to be missed. We will have a table with gifts for pets and people. We'll kick off our holiday raffle. Plus, we always bring along one of our cuties. We are usually in front hallway of the school. Please stop by and say hi.


Visit the shelter on Saturday, December 9 or Sunday, December 10 from Noon to 5:00 p.m. for our Open House. A chance to visit with the animals, take a chance on our Christmas Raffle, win a door prize, and place a gift for the animals under our giving tree. Refreshments will be served all day.


One of our projects for 2017 is to finish the attic space. When completed The Loft will be used as a training space to teach the dogs how to become valued members of a family. We will also use the space for meetings, for children's activities, and for a resource library. If you would like to help make this project possible, please send a check to Responsible Pet Care at P. O. Box 82 in Norway, ME 04268. Mark "The Loft" on your check.



Responsible Pet Care has the opportunity to qualify for a matching $1,000 grant from Community Cats if we can raise $1,000 in three months - mid-January 2018. We are selling paw prints at the shelter for a donation of $1 or more. You can put your own name on them or dedicate a paw to someone special.


We always need volunteers to work in many area of the shelter. Children under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult. All volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application and Release Form; and attend required training before volunteering at the shelter. Please download the application and return it to RPC.
