Contact Autumn Bishop, Animal Control Officer (ACO), regarding lost or missing animals, help or advice on animal problems, information on our animal adoption program, or to donate food and supplies to the shelter. ACO does not handle wild animals or animals that private citizens take in on their own and keep.

ACO Bishop may be contacted at the public safety building at 89 Franklin St., Bucksport. Animals may be viewed by appointment at the Bucksport Animal Shelter, located behind the Transfer Station on Transfer Station Road, off Central Street. For animal adoption guidelines, fees, or more information contact the Animal Control Officer. 

The Animal Shelter is looking for volunteers! Anyone interested in volunteering at the shelter, please contact ACO Bishop at 207-307-8090.
This is a great opportunity for people interested in working with animals.
