...Responsible Pet Care Mission Statement

Welcome to RPC

Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills provides a safe and comfortable environment for dogs and cats from Oxford County, Maine that have become lost or have been abandonded.

Responsible Pet Care is a no-kill, non-profit shelter. All of the cats and kittens in our care need permanent homes and are available for adoption. Many of the dogs will be reunited with their owners; but some will require new homes.

Whether you are looking for your lost pet or you want a companion, make Responsible Pet Care the first place you visit.

Picture of Mario the dogMario is a happy, young dog that will rub and lean all over his handler. He also wants to be a lap dog and will go belly up into open arms if he is allowed. He's a spirited one year old pup that has had little training, but he is working with his handlers to learn the basic commands. Mario will do his best in an environment where there are no other dogs and his person has time to devote to his training. With time and consistency in his new home, he will be a shining star.


Picture of Tia the catTia is a big cat. She likes to stretch her body out and roll onto her back when she is relaxing. She is not opposed to having her belly rubbed. If you like to knit, maybe you could use a helper. Picture Tia sitting at your feet while you make a sweater and rolling the ball of yarn around the room for you. Maybe that is not the best selling point for Tia. So, we'll just say that she is soft like yarn and will make you feel warm and cozy like your favorite sweater.
