Kennebec Valley Humane Society

Over the past 20 years, Charlie's Family of Dealerships has been a major sponsor of the Kennebec Valley Humane Society. From direct donation, to hosting events such as the annual Kibble's N' Bid's auction and Mutt Strut, Charlie's helps raise $50,000 a year for the shelter.

Since 1927 the Kennebec Valley Humane Society has provided shelter, food, and medical services to local animals in need. Our mission is to care for, protect and place animals for adoption in lifelong homes; to prevent cruelty to animals by educating our communities in the proper and humane care of all animals. Our vision is to end pet overpopulation and to advance the humane treatment of all animals.

Charlie's is proud to support the Kennebec Valley Humane Society in their mission.



Charlie's Subaru and The Nancy Shuman Shelter - Steve S

For the past 34 years, Charlie and Nancy Shuman as well as the entire Charlie's Subaru organization have been huge supporters of many local animal shelters and humane societies because of their tremendous love of animals of all kinds. Charlie's wife Nancy has been especially compassionate about this effort to help the animals and has given hundreds of hours of volunteer time to help out the animals. She and Charlie have always said that "We need to help out those who can not speak for themselves." Charlie, Nancy, and the rest of the Shuman family, as well as countless employees, have recognized the need for a new, state of the art animal shelter for some time. It was last year when Charlie's decided to step up big time for the cause that so many in the family and company feel so passionate about. Charlie has recently made a commitment to help fund the new project in the amount of $1,500,000 to $2,000,000! This commitment will hopefully help to speed up the process in erecting the new facility very soon, as Charlie and Nancy are very much aware of how important this new facility is for the animals. The entire Shuman Family as well as the Charlie's organization got some very exciting news a few weeks ago....the new shelter is going to be named The Nancy Shuman Animal shelter!!! Nancy and Charlie were in tears when they heard this exciting news!!! Since Charlie opened up his Subaru store in 1986, he always said to himself that if that his success allowed it, he would love to build a safe loving environment for all animals, and the dream shared by him and his wife Nancy has now become a reality.
