NEW Adoption Steps:
If a pet has a medical condition or behavioral issue, LRHS will make certain you are aware of the issue(s) before you adopt.
Adopters will receive a certificate for a free veterinary exam by Winter Harbor Veterinary Hospital, Meadow Pond Veterinary Hospital or The Kindness Animal Hospital, copies of all medical and behavioral paperwork for their new pet and a free starter bag of food and other goodies to help with the transition into a new home.

Senior to Senior Discount
This discount is offered to adults 65-75 years old. If you qualify for the Sr. to Sr. discount we will match you up with an animal over the age of 7 for a discounted rate. This discount is not to be combined with any other offer or discounts.
- Cats over the age 7 = $20 off the original adoption fee.
- Dogs over the age of 7 =$40 off the original adoption fee.
Barn Cat Program
Welcoming a cat into your barn can decrease rodent populations and, as a result, help to protect your food supplies, electrical wiring and insulation. These hand selected cats enjoy living independently and hunting but are not necessarily fond of human contact or living in a home.
There is no fee to adopt a barn cat. Donations to assist with medical care are appreciated but not required.
How it works:
- Submit the “Barn Cat Adoption Application & Contract“
- Once approved, you will be placed on the “Barn Cat Call List”
- LRHS will call you when your barn cat is ready for adoption!
Every barn cat departing LRHS will have the following vetting completed:
- Spay/Neuter surgery
- Ear tipped
- Negative FIV and Feline Leukemia test
- Rabies and Distemper Vaccinations
- Flea/Tick preventative (good for 1 month)
In return for this complimentary service LRHS asks that you commit to providing your barn cat with:
- fresh cat food and water daily
- a dry and secure barn, garage, warehouse or building for cats to reside in
- long term veterinary care as needed
