Join us on March 10th in ‘the Keddy’ (MSSPA’s new Keddy-Goodreau Equine Rehabilitation Facility) for 2019’s first Take It Away Day – tack edition.

Generous Society supporters make a lot of in-kind donations to the MSSPA – 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!

Just to name a few things we have: there will be saddles and saddle pads, blankets, bridles and other tack items, boots, and so much more; items are available for sale or donation. 100% of your contribution goes directly to the feeding and care of the rescued horses. So come on in and discover what you can take away!

Do you have a kiddo who loves horses?

Then the MSSPA is the perfect place for your child and their posse to celebrate an upcoming birthday! Book the Society’s humane education classroom for two hours of fun, including a pony ride, a tour of the barns, games and activities, and hands-on time with a horse in the indoor training arena.

Learn about the available packages & book your party today! Click here or contact MSSPA at or (207) 892-3040 for more information.

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!
