Located in the small rural town of Lee, Maine,

4R Animal Shelter began in March of 2011.

Several concerned friends sitting at a table, having   

coffee and trying to decide how they could help

animals in trouble

                                               Why 4R??

          The name 4R came from  the four steps of animal rescue:  
                1. Rescue - whether rescuing an animal from a bad situation,
                         rescuing  an owner from a situation out of their control.  
                   2. Rehabilitate - the horses and other animals usually come with
                          problems, whether     physical, mental, training issues or emotional
                            issues.  These have to be addressed.  
                      3. Re-train - often the horses and other animals have been loved,
                            but not trained to  a level they should be.  This can make an animal
                              un-adoptable or delay their chance for a new home.   
                         4. Re-home - the best part ever.  To give these wonderful animals
                                a new lease on life and to be able to watch them blossom with
                                 a new home.    When an animal leaves for that new home it is
                                 bitter sweet.  Bitter that they will be missed at 4R, Sweet, that
                                they have a new life ahead of them.
