Safe Haven is a NO KILL animal rescue group serving Kennebunk, Wells and the rest of southern York County, Maine. We are dedicated to the “radical” notion that all companion animals deserve a loving and comfortable life.

Safe Haven programs include:

  • Humane pet rescue
  • Home foster care
  • Educating the community about compassionate pet care
  • and, of course, adoptions!

As a grassroots, volunteer-run organization, we have no big endowments to pay our bills. We depend on individuals and small businesses like you for the funds we need to pay for spaying, neutering, medical care, rehabilitation, transportation and supplies for the cats in our care.

Last year, for example, we spent over $60,000 on vet bills. That doesn’t include ongoing expenses like food, litter, etc.

Because we’re a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, your contributions are tax-deductible. Consult your tax advisor for details.

Our Adoption Center, 1420 Post Rd, Wells, is open 11-4pm Tues-Sat. However, if a scheduled volunteer is unable to work, we may not be be open. Please call 207-646-1611 to be sure.

Our Thrift Shop is next to the IGA Supermarket in Wells Corner, Rt. 1 at Rt. 109. Open 11-5pm Tues, Wed, Fri, Sun. Thurs 12-5pm. Sat 11-6pm. Be sure to visit the kitties in the store’s “Scaredy Cat School!” We welcome donations of cat food (preferably Friskies canned and Purina One dry) as well as your gently used clothing and housewares.
