They did it! Bangor Humane Society marks first-ever empty shelter!
Bangor Humane Society did it! They emptied the shelter through the Mega Match-a-thon of over 100 animals!
Here’s what they wrote on their facebook page. I couldn’t word it any better:
“Because of our HUGE success we are closing early today at 4 pm and will be closed tomorrow to regroup for regular business hours next week!
We are overwhelmed with gratitude and humbled by the amazing turn out. We hope this event will place us as the premier adoption facility in the community for people looking for a new furry best friend. We surely will be full again soon with amazing pets and hope we will experience the crowds we had this weekend daily as each of our pets deserve a line of multiple potential adopters.! Thank you all!”
The Mega-Match-A-Thon was done partly through the ASPCA and the magic worked. On Friday alone the shelter adopted 96 pets into forever homes. I’m so proud of them and the hard work they put in. Today (Saturday) they adopted the last 7 animals. WAY TO GO!

Way to go Bangor Humane Society!
