Mark your calendars for “Take It Away Day” – Saturday, June 12!

Generous supporters give the Society many in-kind donations – so many that we can’t use them all – but we want them to go to good use in your barns. Come to “Take It Away Day” and help clean out our storage areas, get great stuff, and make a donation to New England’s premier horse shelter. Everyone goes home happier!

RAIN OR SHINE

There will be saddles and saddle pads, blankets, tack items, clothing, boots, and so much more; make a donation and take it away!

With over $2,000 raised through the generosity of visitors who helped clear the MSSPA storage areas, last year’s “Take It Away Day” was the most successful one yet. Please help the Society make this year’s event an even bigger hit. All donations will benefit the horses!

March in Maine means mud and that means spring is close upon us. Seed catalogs litter kitchen tables and a red-winged blackbird has been seen. Another sure sign of spring is the kickoff of the MSSPA’s annual Buy-A-Bale campaign.

Each of the many horses at the Society’s barn eats approximately one bale of hay every day.   Multiply that by 365 days and it becomes clear why hay is one of the largest expenses in the Society’s budget. Our goal is to raise $100,000 by the end of June, with your help, and fill the haylofts with more than 20,000 bales of hay.

On behalf of the horses, thank you for your support. What a difference the hay makes!

Our vision is to eliminate 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 surrendered horses, and educate the public.




The 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.
