Bangor Humane Society meeting and BBQ Saturday afternoon (18)
Bangor Humane Society will offer burgers and hot dogs. Let them know you’ll be attending and bring a dish to share.
Hot dogs for humans, but this is a joint effort between BHS and Road Trip Home Animal Rescue, so the dogs are going to be too excited to eat, saying hello to all their old pals.
Road Trip Home is a non-profit organization based in Georgia. They rescue homeless pets and relocate them to shelters in the northeast.
Road Trip Home (RTH) rescues as many homeless animals as possible and after medical screening and health care as needed and it is certain the animal is deemed healthy, they are transported to shelters in Maine , Massachusetts and New York as the Bangor Humane Society.
RTH Animal Rescue rescues around 1,500 dogs a year who end up being adopted.
Many dogs in Maine have a connection to Road Trip Home, hence the meeting. And RTH staff will be there for the celebration.
The meeting and barbecue is this Saturday between 3 and 5 p.m., at the BHS on Mt Hope Avenue in Bangor. RSVP to [email protected]
BHS Animal Care Director Sam Carruth says
We are honored to have worked so closely with Road Trip Home Rescue over the past few years, saving hundreds of animals from ending up in high euthanasia shelters in Georgia. They are deeply invested in the plight of these pets and it is exciting to help our friends at RTH reconnect with the animals they helped save.

And Ada adopted by Andrea
It’s going to be very good.
Back to Sam from BHS
We know pet owners love to share stories of how their rescued dogs have changed their lives. Lots of smiling faces, lots of play date planning, especially for owners learning about their dog’s siblings. It’s going to be a very fun day for all of us
U.S. too. Woofwoof.
