My name is Ralph Demmons ( pictured with my grandson Maverick). I am the Animal Control Officer for St. George and So. Thomaston. I started this role in March of 2020 and wanted to introduce myself. I took over the role from my retiring uncle Bill Demmons. I live on Spruce Head Rd in So. Thomaston. I’m a member of So. Thomaston Fire as well as So. Thomaston Ambulance as a driver.
Last year I responded to nearly 50 calls in St George. From stray dogs and cats to loose pigs and cattle. This year has started out quite busy and the cooperation from pet owners, as well as complainants has been remarkable. Thank you.
Please keep in mind the ACO is responsible for domesticated pets and livestock. I also assist with relocating trapped animals such as skunks and raccoons. Fox, coyotes, deceased deer, etc. are issues that can be relayed to a local Game Warden. Also, I've had several calls regarding mice/rodent issues. These are calls to be handled by an exterminator.
We are all in this together to keep our pets safe. Please call me anytime 207-542-2419 with reports, questions, or concerns. Be safe. - Ralph

Update from the Broadband Committee The Connect St. George Committee is asking the St. George community to participate in Maine Broadband Coalition's Speed Tes t . The goal of the “Get Up To Speed” initiative is to gather data from across the state to generate the most comprehensive map of both the presence and quality of internet in Maine to date. How does this help the Connect St. George initiative? The new speed testing initiative is the crucial next step in ensuring the delivery of broadband throughout the state and will help local, regional, and state leaders develop projects and steer investments to the places that need it most. The test takes less than 1 minute (depending on your internet) and will help us move our project forward.
