Greater Androscoggin Humane Society


Located in Lewiston, Maine, the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society (GAHS) was first incorporated as a nonprofit volunteer organization in 1885, with a mission to protect horses and children from abuse. Today, they are an open-intake shelter, welcoming mainly companion animals within the mission of: Strengthening the community by supporting the humane care of animals and fostering the human-animal bond. Many of their programs focus on affordable and accessible pet wellness and support services to keep people and their companions together and intake at a manageable level, in addition to adoption. 

Funded in 2020

The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society (GAHS) is honored to receive funding from The Grey Muzzle Organization to help provide medical care such as diagnostics, dentals and preventative care for approximately 100 senior dogs.  Not only will senior shelter dogs benefit from this investment, it will also help provide wellness services for owned senior dogs so they can remain in their homes where they are loved and cherished.
