*Per Maine state law, all dogs and cats must be spayed/neutered prior to adoption, or arrangements for future spay/neuter made at the time of adoption and completed before the adoption contract becomes valid. If the spay/neuter is not completed as arrange the adoption contract becomes invalid and the pet reverts to the ownership of the Humane Society Waterville Area.
