Providing refuge, rehabilitation, and placement for abused and neglected horses in Maine.

Home

After years of planning and months of construction, MSSPA proudly presents the Lawrence J. Keddy and Marilyn L. Goodreau Equine Rehabilitation Facility.
To celebrate, with support from our generous sponsor IDEXX, you are cordially invited to the River Road farm to tour the new facility, partake of refreshments, and observe equine demonstrations. Of course, our barns will also be open and the horses ready to greet you. MSSPA will have extended visiting hours for the three-day event and you are welcome to visit October 26 through 28 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or all three days!) between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

FMI, visit MSSPA’s Facebook event page.

Our vision is the elimination of equine abuse and neglect.

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.




MSSPA uses its resources to provide direct care, rehabilitation, and placement for horses who have suffered abuse.

The Society promotes humane treatment, training, and use of animals through education and hands-on experiences.

Help, Hope, Home

A Facility Improvement

Help, Hope, Home is a $1.8 million facility improvement that consolidates an indoor training arena and humane education center with administrative offices. The project serves the horses and the people who care about them. Our indoor training arena is a vital step forward and you are our vital partner in making it a reality. Together, we will give majestic, beautiful – yet mistreated – horses help, hope… home.
