Dixie is a spayed, female Beagle-Dalmatian mix, about 4 years old, that came to Tall Tails Beagle Rescue from the Paris Animal Welfare Society in Paris, Ky. She was a family member of a shelter volunteer who lost her home and is now in need of a new family to call her own. Dixie is a wonderful girl who has only three legs, but gets around without a problem. She gets along well with other dogs and cats and just loves her people.

Rosie is a spayed, female Beagle, about 8 years old and has been a house pet all her life. She is active and affectionate and gets along well with other animals. She usually sits by the door and paces or whines when she needs to go outside to do her business. Rosie is used to a crate but would prefer to sleep on the couch. She was clicker trained, but like many Beagles, responds best to treats.

Tommy is an adult male that has been at HART for some time. He is a very handsome boy with very distinct markings. Tommy has a sweet, sweet personality and is affectionate and loving. He enjoys being with people and would be happiest in a quiet home with no other cats, as he wants the love and attention all to himself.

Persia is a young female cat with lovely green eyes, soft silky short hair, and a sweet personality, curious and playful. She is a little gray tiger with white accents. She was an owner surrender so we know that she gets along with other cats in a home environment. She also has been around a dog or two. We estimate her to be between 1 and 2 years old.

Snowball is a pure white young adult male with gorgeous eyes who arrived as a stray. He was rather unsure when he first arrived, but is settling in nicely. Snowball is very playful, and the vet estimates him to be a year or less.



The Animal Welfare Society is gearing up for the kittens who will arrive and need our care this spring and summer. “Kitten Season” is an annual occurrence, referring to the time when cats prefer to give birth, early spring through summer.

AWS is challenging civic organizations, classrooms and other groups to take the “Project Kitten Challenge” by collecting much needed donations of supplies to help care for the many kittens and mother cats we will care for and bring them to the annual Kitten Shower.

The Kitten Shower will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 14 and will include a photo contest, bake sale, many raffle items, and craft items for sale. The Animal Welfare Society is asking for donations of cat litter, wet and dry kitten food, kitten milk replacement, cat beds and kitten toys. On the day of the kitten shower donations from the wish list will be weighed and the winning group will receive a behind the scenes tour of the shelter and a pizza party.


The following animals are available at the Animal Welfare Society in West Kennebunk Call 985-3244.

Tracker, a 10-year old Beagle, is a social gentleman who would be happy to share a new home with some other dogs, cats, and respectful children over the age of 10. Tracker is a low maintenance fellow.

Calvin, a 10-year old black and white cat, enjoys nothing more than curling up on your lap and purring away as you pet him. If he’s not in your lap, then he’ll be following you around looking for some quality petting. And just because he’s 10-years old it doesn’t mean that cuddling is all he does. Unfortunately, he doesn’t get along well with other cats or dogs, so he’ll have to be the only pet in his new home.

Jiffy is a 6-month-old rabbit, sweet as sugar and extremely handsome. Jiffy is a very laid back bunny that would love to share his new home with respectful children who are going to take him out and handle him on a daily basis in order to keep him a friendly boy. He would also love to have snacks of fruits, veggies and hay along with his daily diet of quality pellet rabbit food. Jiffy would also enjoy having a bunny hide away as well as toys to chew on. Providing him with these such things will help keep him a happy, healthy bunny.
