BRUNSWICK (WGME) -- Workers at the Coastal Humane Society in Brunswick care for more than 3,000 animals a year.

They say summer months are the busiest, because it’s when they have the most animals at the shelter.

The society covers 40 towns and cities, from Falmouth to Washington.

Donations and volunteers are vital to their success and that helps offset expenses.

Executive Director Trendy Stanchfield says aside from caring for pets and matching them with the perfect family, they want the community to be aware of other resources they offer, such as helping answer questions about your pets, summer camps for kids, and even walks and fundraisers.

“We see a lot of people come through our pet food pantry. So, folks who are maybe falling through on hard times, we have donated food that we make available to households. We have two campuses, one in Brunswick and one in Edgecomb. So, folks can visit us there. No judging, we just want to make sure the pets are fed,” Stanchfield said.

"For more on what the shelter has to offer, you can visit coastalhumanesociety.org.

Friday is CBS 13’s annual Pet Food Drive and Adoption Day. We are collecting food for a number of area shelters all day. CLICK HERE for a list of locations.
