About Us

 P.A.L.S., which stands for Protectors of Animal Life Society, 
Winthrop, Maine
P.A.L.S. is a no-kill cat shelter that began in 1980 as a non-profit, charitable organization. No public funds support this organization.  P.A.L.S. is supported by memberships, fund-raising, memorial gifts, donations, and bequests. Your support is greatly needed. The shelter's living space consists of several rooms where the cats roam freely and have access to enclosed outdoor pens.  Occupancy can range from 70-100 cats at any given time. We are open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and adoption hours are 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (closed holidays and snow days). An appointment is required before dropping off any cat or kitten.
