Maine Law - Dogs in Hot Cars
Written by MFOA   
Tuesday, 13 June 2017

Dog in Hot Car

It is that time of year again - when animals are in danger of dying from heat exposure if left in vehicles unattended.

We thought this would be a good time to review the Maine law on who is authorized to remove animals in distress from unattended motor vehicles.

In 2011, MFOA submitted and passed improvements to the existing law in Maine, expanding the type of authorities that can help an animal (dog, cat, horse, etc.) that may be in danger in a hot (or cold) vehicle.

Living with Wildlife, Beavers

Beavers were almost eliminated from three continents before people realized the value of "nature's engineers." According to Beavers: Wetlands and Wildlife, hydrologists blame the uncontrolled trapping of beavers in the 1700s and 1800s, followed by intensive drainage for agriculture, for most of today's major environmental problems in North America, i.e., water pollution, damage from flooding, droughts, erosion, species extinction.

MFOA Partners With “Center for Wildlife”
Written by MFOA   
Wednesday, 11 January 2017



For over 30 years, Cape Neddick's Center for Wildlife has provided medical care, safe sanctuary and humane treatment for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife until they can be released back into the wild. The Center receives 3,000 animals annually from all over New England and also provides educational outreach programs about wildlife and their environments.

MFOA has spent 20 years serving as a voice for the humane treatment of Maine's companion animals and wildlife. These two organizations are now partnering to enhance and continue their dovetailing missions to safeguard animals with the least protection.
