We serve the Oxford Hills, Maine area for strays and surrenders. Any kind-hearted person from anywhere in the world is welcome to apply for adoption.

About Our Shelter:

Responsible Pet Care is a no-kill, non-profit shelter for cats and dogs. The animals in our shelter have been picked up as strays by the animal control officer or surrendered by their owner. Pets have been neutered or spayed, received rabies vaccinations, received distemper shots, tested for HIV and feline leukemia or Heart worm, dewormed and given flea treatments before being released to a new home.

Responsible Pet Care is located at 9 Swallow Road in Paris, Maine. The shelter is open for business on Tuesday through Sunday from Noon until 4:00 p.m.

Our Adoption Process:

Prospective adopters are required to complete an adoption application. References are contacted. Animals that are currently residing in the household must be up-to-date with vaccinations. The veterinarian will also be called. Landlord's permission is needed if the person adopting rents their home.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
