The mission of the Cocheco Valley Humane Society is to make possible a better world for all animals by providing shelter, educating the community about humane care and treatment, advocating animal welfare, and promoting the human-animal bond.
Cocheco Valley Humane Society has been caring for our community's homeless pets since 1984.
Spaying or neutering your pet reduces unwanted litters and can minimize the risk of many cancer ralated pet illnesses.
CVHS reunites lost pets with loved ones.
The shelter plays an active role in spay/neuter education.
Staff and volunteers conduct outreach programs such as rabies and micro-chipping clinics in cooperation with local veterinarians.
CVHS teaches pet ownership responsibility to local youngsters through the Classroom Critter program.
The CVHS foster home care program provides for special needs animals awaiting adoption.
Hundreds of volunteers give their time and energy to homeless animals by performing administrative duties, volunteering for special events, and cleaning, feeding, and socializing the animals.
