News from the Rutland County Humane Society

The Rutland County Humane Society is launching a campaign to help raise funds and build a walkway to your new best friend. Brick by brick our walkway will be built.

Bricks are ideal gifts for the holidays, to commemorate a special event, honor a special person or pet, dedicate the memory of a loved one, celebrate a milestone and more! 4" x 8" bricks are $50 and 8" x 8" bricks are $200.

To order your brick or for more information please contact RCHS at 483-9171 or visit www.rchsvt.org. Together we can build a pathway to a brighter future for the homeless animals in Rutland County.


A 1 year old, neutered male, Dachsund mix weighing 24 lbs.

I am just the right size for taking everywhere with you and I am an odd-looking little fella so I am a great conversation starter. This is my second time around at RCHS.

"I was originally a stray and was adopted but returned because I was not fitting well into their family. They had two young children with disabilities and I was not able to adjust. I am an eager little dog who has learned to be wary of new things in my life so I need (this second time around) an owner who is patient and will take the time to de-sensitize me to new people.

"I walk nicely on a leash and know how to sit and I do enjoy a good treat, which will make training me easy! I like other dogs and should be able to live with cats but no kids, please."


A 1 year old, neutered male, domestic long hair black and white, weighing 8 lbs.

"I arrived with my friend Meeko on October 18 from a home that had too many pets and they could not care for us. What a face. I have lived with other cats, dogs and children so most any home would be perfect. I like to play with toys and do all the other things cats like to do."

RCHS is located at 765 Stevens Road in Pittsford. The shelter phone number is 483-6700. The shelter is open Wednesday through Saturday from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. and is closed Sunday through Tuesday. Learn more about RCHS by visiting www.rchsvt.org.
