2023 Annual Awards Small Business of the Year: Midcoast Humane

April 6, 2023

Midcoast Humane – Small Business of the Year

Some people don’t count every heartbeat under their roof as family, but most pet owners do. We don’t always realize how they shape, enrich, frustrate and weave their way into the fabric of our lives. With that bond comes true emotional attachment and companionship, and Midcoast Humane is one place that helps you through whatever step of the journey you happen to be on.

You could be at the beginning and finding a new family member to bring home. You could be taking classes to train your pet. It might be time for vaccinations or perhaps your pet got sick or injured and needs medical attention. Your living situation could have changed, and the new landlord doesn’t allow pets. Maybe someone passed away and their pets need a new home. Maybe your cat has a new litter that you don’t know what to do with. Maybe it’s time to make the difficult decision of saying goodbye.

Midcoast Humane has had an incredible 12 months, with the highlight of the year being the opening of their new, state-of-the-art clinic in June 2022 at 5 Industrial Parkway in Brunswick after 72 years in a well-loved but past-its-useable-life building on Range Road. It was time for a change as the previous shelter was the original home of the organization when it was conceived in 1950. The team moved hundreds of animals, dozens of staff and thousands of pounds of equipment into the new space outfitted with industry-leading medical facilities that allow for better X-rays, bloodwork and highly efficient spay/neuter treatment areas.

Besides the Brunswick location, the Edgecomb campus also sees many clients and animals every week. Between the two locations, they’ve seen a huge increase in adoptions, as they’re on pace to surpass last year’s adoptions by several hundred. In fact, the larger space at the new Brunswick facility has allowed for more animals to be welcomed from other animal-care facilities both in-state and out-of-state. Rural shelters in particular can have difficulty finding the right owners to place pets with, and when that happens, everyone is thankful that a place like Midcoast Humane exists where good animals have a better chance to find loving homes thanks to the constant traffic.

Midcoast Humane leads with love in all that they do; they change families and are there for people in some of their biggest moments of need. That always deserves to be celebrated.

Congratulations to Midcoast Humane, the 2023 Small Business of the Year.
