P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center, a no kill shelter, located at 146 Camden Street in Rockport, is the facility that contracts with Searsmont to accept stray dogs and cats found in your town and brought to our facility by the Animal Control Officers.  We are open Tuesday through Sundays, 11 am to 4 pm.  We also keep a record of lost dogs and cats who are reported missing by their owners.  So, please call us if your dog or cat goes missing so we can put their information in our files and notify you if anyone has information about your lost or missing dog or cat.
