Voice For Animals (VFA)
Voice For Animals (VFA) is grass roots, non-profit and no kill organization organization established in 1987 and headquartered in York, Maine.
We believe that all animals matter and deserve compassion, comfort, happiness, and respect. Our primary goal is to give them a VOICE. We work to eliminate animal suffering and overpopulation, to educate the public, and to promote sensitivity and caring toward all animals.
By alleviating some of the overcrowding which shelters across the state experience frequently or from time to time, Voice For Animals can help twice: once by rescuing some animals before they go to a shelter, and again by allowing the shelter animals to live longer (and have a better chance of being adopted) because there are more empty cages available.
This organization exists to promote sensitivity and caring for animals through education and other
lawful means and to share our knowledge of related issues with others to promote understanding and compassion for animals and humans. Read more about what we believe...
What We Do
Operating a spay/neuter unit is not longer our goal; that has been replaced by acquiring property so we can run a no-kill shelter.
We operate on grants, public donations, and membership dues. Voice For Animals pays NO wages. A few core volunteers cover much of the small administrative costs of caring for the animals, thus ALL donations are used directly for the animals.
We are currently conducting a member drive to increase our membership numbers. We need members not only to help financially with the costs of caring for the animals, but also to give the organization
strength and spread the word of the work we are doing and the great need.
Please won't you lend your voice to this worthy cause?
Together we can make a world of difference for those who depend on us; who give so much, and ask so little...

Bennie is one of three older kittens looking for a patient, quiet home. He and his cat family were on their own for quite some time. They did not learn the kindness of people until a Voice for Animals volunteer took them into her home. They have made tremendous strides in learning to trust humans and will continue to do so in the right forever home. Bennie's male litter mate recently got adopted, so it is now him and his two sisters (Marylin pic 2, Joon pic3) waiting for their chance at a real home. Look at that face? Isn't he worth a little extra time and patience? Please email Voice for Animals for more information on Bennie and his sisters: email@example.com
Come see us at Apple Harvest Day in Dover, NH on October 3rd, 2015!
Voice for Animals would like to thank the ASPCA for the generous Nip it in the Bud grant to spay and neuter cats of low-income families. This made a difference in the lives of 68 cats who were seen by a vet, vaccinated and spayed or neutered. The families of these cats are very grateful for the help.
