About Our Rescue Group:

Buddy Up Animal Society networks with shelters, trainers, behaviorists, foster homes, and adoptive homes in the southern and midcoast Maine area to provide a safe haven for pets who run out of options in the shelter system. It's also our mission to promote sterilization and adoption over breeding as a solution to the homeless animal population, and to offer programs in humane education and training.

Come Meet our Pets:

Buddy Up Animal Society places rescue animals in foster homes throughout southern and mid-coast Maine. We introduce prospective adopters through personal meet-and-greet appointments and adoption events.

Our Adoption Process:

● Interested parties fill out an Adoption Application
● A BUAS representative reviews the adoption application and screens the potential adopter to see if they're a good fit.
● A meet-and-greet is arranged.
● A BUAS representative visits the home.
● When a BUAS representative approves the adoption, the adopter finalizes the adoption by completing an Adoption Agreement and makes a donation to help cover some of the expenses incurred in rescuing the animal (these often include costs for transportation, medical treatment, and boarding).

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.
