The Animal Welfare Society in West Kennebunk hosted the Georgia animal rescue group, “Road Trip Home” Thursday evening at the shelter on Holland Road.

The “Road Trip Home Reunion” reunited more than 150 dogs and their families with the volunteers from Georgia who saved the dogs and helped to transport them from high-kill shelters in Georgia to Maine for adoption through AWS.
