Exotic Animal Care



Lost Pets

If you have lost a pet, you should contact your municipal animal control officer as well as the two nearest animal shelters. Placing an ad in the newspaper and posting flyers are also very effective ways to be reunited with a lost pet.

Found Pets

If you find a dog, Maine law requires that it be taken to an animal shelter to be held for six days in order to allow an owner the opportunity to reclaim it. Cats and kittens should also be taken to the shelter or a description left so that they can be matched with lost reports from their worried owners.

Injured Animal Fund

The Animal Emergency Clinic of Mid-Maine cares for many injured strays brought in by animal control officers. Because municipal funding is limited and the demand is great to help them, we have set up a fund to be able to provide some of these needy creatures with more advanced medical treatment. While we cannot help them all, we are able to make a difference for a few before transferring them to a shelter in order to find them new homes. If you would like to make a donation (sorry, not tax deductible), please contact the clinic manager.
