Each year, hundreds of lost and abandoned animals have found food, shelter, medical treatment and the comfort of a caring staff at the Animal Orphanage. Every effort is made to reunite lost animals with their loving owners or arrange adoption into a new family. The Animal Orphanage strives to counteract the needless euthanasia of unwanted pets by spaying and neutering each animal prior to placement.

Outside of a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the new blueness on the Florida sky, ran a little, tawny-haired boy.

The abuse hardens you. The suffering breaks you. The ignorance angers you. The indifference disturbs you.... The injustice destroys you. On a daily basis…your faith will be tested. Your heart will be wounded….
Your soul will be altered. On a weekly basis…you’ll question yourself. You’ll question your strength. You’ll question the world. On a monthly basis…you’ll fall down. You’ll get up. You’ll go on… On a yearly basis…you’ll look back… You’ll see faces… You couldn’t save them. You’ll learn to mourn. To grieve. To sob. You’ll learn to trust a little less. To do a little more.
To fight a little harder. You’ll learn to try. To hope. To pray. You’ll learn to fail. To succeed. To accept. You’ll learn when to hold on. When to give up. When to let go. You’ll learn who you are. What you stand for. Why that matters. Then… at times… you’ll forget why you matter. You’ll question what you’re doing. You’ll wonder if it’s worth it. But…here’s the good news… When you forget… When you question… When you wonder… All you have to do… Is take a look around… And you’ll see them.
You’ll see their faces. You’ll see their smiles. You’ll feel their love. In their eyes, you’ll see their journeys… You’ll remember their beginnings… You’ll know how far they’ve come… You’ll remember when they didn’t know you… When they didn’t trust you… When they’d given up. You’ll remember how you healed them… How you loved them… How they loved you, too. And as you look back… You’ll want to move forward… For them… and because of them.
In your darkest hours, you’ll look around… To find the differences made…the hope given…and the lives saved… Because you existed. In those moments, when you look into their eyes…every doubt will be erased. Every question will be answered. Every worry will subside. Because in that instant…in each of your hearts… You both share the very same thought: “Every bit of pain was worth it…for this moment here with you.
” And honestly…no matter what else happens… Those moments hold all the strength you need… To keep going. Rescue is pain. Rescue is joy. Rescue is worth it…because they are worth it. And that’s the honest truth.

As a cat-mom I guess I'm not that smart. I have some special needs kitties, including one who uses pee pads and sometimes misses. As I walked by one of those misses, having a bottle of bleach in my hand, I dumped some on to clean up. NOT a good idea. Immediately a horrible gas formed. I had to open a window and leave the room (a small utility room). DON'T MIX CHLORINE AND PEE!!!Animal Orphanage (Old Town, Maine) · January 22 at 9:10am · 1-24-18 SARAH HAS BEEN ADOPTED! 1-22-18 Meet SARAH, she is a year and a half old and a snuggle bug.
