Adopt a pet Rutland, Vermont

The Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) will not be charging adoption fees for adult cats over the age of 1. All other adoption policies and guidelines apply and only one cat per adopter is eligible for the promotion.

Adult cats make great companions. They have mature personalities and much affection to offer. We are launching our "fee-waiver" promotion because we want to give them every chance to find the great homes they deserve. Feline overpopulation is a significant problem in Rutland County. We shelter and provide a second chance for more than 900 cats and kittens a year.

RCHS offers a variety of community programs for residents to have cats affordably spayed and neutered: Trap-Neuter-Return, Spay the Mom, Forest Park Spay\Neuter Clinic and transportation to the Vt.-CAN Spay\Neuter clinic. Please call the shelter at 483.6700 to learn more about these programs.

The humane society is located at 765 Stevens Road, Pittsford,VT

Hours of Operation: Wed. - Sun. 12 noon to 5 p.m.

Closed Monday and Tuesday. For more information call

802-483-6700 or visit www.rchsvt.org


1 year old. Neutered Male. Pit Bull.

All right everyone, who's ready for the best dog in the world? That's right I said it. I am a happy go lucky guy who enjoys playtime and long walks. I especially love to play fetch. I am a pretty smart guy too. I know how to sit, lie down and give "high fives."


1 year old. Neutered Male. Terrier Mix.

I am a playful little dog who enjoys the company of people and other dogs and also a good game of fetch. And I know how to sit.


2 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Orange Tabby.

I think that you will agree that I am one beautiful kitty. I know I look shy but once I get comfortable I am sweet, loveable and very outgoing.


5 year old. Neutered Male. Guinea Pig.

I came to RCHS with 2 other guinea pigs and we all get along well with each other. We are all very social and like to be handled and loved. We can go home separately if we need to.
