On Sunday, April 7 the next Pause for Pets Craft and Vendor Fair will be held at the Ramada Inn from 10am -3pm.  The fair benefits the life changing work of the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society.  More than 50 local crafters and vendors will be offering a variety of products and services.

Pause for Pets fairs began in 2012 and are held twice a year, in April and November.  The last event, held  in November 2018 raised more than $3,500 for the shelter.  Proceeds will be directed to the Animal Medical Fund which assists with costs of life saving treatments and surgeries for animals in the care of GAHS.

Voulnteers and staff from the shelter will be on hand to discuss its programs, services and volunteer opportunities.  Donations of pet food, bleach, cleaning supplies, toys, treats and other needed items will be accepted and greatly appreciated.

In addition, a team from Androscoggin County’s Emergency Response Team will be there offering information on emergency preparedness for your pets.  Raffles, a 50/50 and free door prize drawings will be held.  Pinky D’s and Top It On the Go will be onsite.

Questions about the event can be directed to or FMI contact GAHS at 783-2311.
