Gift and Thrift Shops support shelter - open 7 days a week


SOS helps control local feral and stray cat populations through a trap, neuter and release program. Homes that had large numbers of un-neutered cats have been provided Help Fix Me vouchers. As much as possible, cats and kittens are spayed or neutered and placed in homes.

Shops open summer 9-4 (but may vary).

Volunteers are needed to help in the shelter and both gift and thrift shops. Example of tasks needing volunteer help in the shelter: transport cats to and from the veterinarian,  help feed feral cats at feeding stations, attempt to socialize kittens :),  help trap feral cats,  clean cages, and pick up cat food in Machias.

SOS-Lubec, Maine, Inc., Give Us a Chance Shelter is a registered, incorporated shelter for cats, with a 501(c)3 tax exemption.  All proceeds of the shops support the shelter. Visitors welcome!
