Our Belgian reindeer reminds you, when doing your holiday shopping this year, do it with smile.amazon.com/ch/01-0212545.

When you select the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals as your supported charity, a portion of every purchase will be donated to the rescue horses. Belle and all the horses at River Road farm thank you!

“Tess was a racehorse, but she was never a very good one. And in her late teens, retired but healthy, she was no longer wanted by her then owners.

So they called Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals, a horse rescue organization based in Windham, and offered her up — with an ultimatum. They either take Tess, or she would be killed.

MSSPA usually only takes in Maine horses that are seized by law enforcement because of abuse and neglect. It wasn’t their typical case, but they took her anyway…”

To read more about Tess and her journey with MSSPA from arrival through adoption, take a look at this fabulous piece written by The Bangor Daily News‘ Aislinn Sarnacki!

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.

It is with great pride that the Maine State Society for the Protection of Animals announces that it is now accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS). The Society is the only equine facility in the State of Maine to have earned such an honor. To read the complete story, click here!
