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

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.



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.
