Life-Saving Statistics


Every life saved is important.

Lives saved in 2016: 4,439... a 99% save rate!

Greater Androscoggin Humane Society adopted out 4,020 animals in 2016, our second highest number in our 128 year history.  SInce opening the doors to our new Strawberry Avenue facility in 2007, our adoption numbers have doubled.

As of January 2016, GAHS has considered themselves a No Kill Animal Shelter.  We save the lives of each pet that comes through our doors; unless they are extremely sick or deemed too dangerous for our community... and we never put a time limit on a pets stay with us.
