The mission of the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals is to provide refuge, rehabilitation, and placement of seized equines, support the placement of surrenders, and educate the public. The vision is the elimination of equine abuse and neglect. Most of the horses received by MSSPA have a history of abuse or neglect and have been seized by Maine law enforcement officials. The goal for each horse is rehabilitation and a new home. By donating your time, energy and love, you play an important role in promoting the health and well-being of all the horses. After a tour of the Society, and the chance to meet and learn about the rescued horses, youth volunteers will work together to accomplish farm chores and other projects that benefit the horses.

What to bring/wear: 
Please wear long pants and heavy shoes or boots (no shorts, sandals or Crocs please). It's a good idea to wear clothing that you don't mind getting dirty; this is an animal shelter and a working farm, so there is lots of dirt, mud, and manure!
