News from the Rutland County Humane Society

Losing a pet is a very emotional thing. It's really important that all animals have identification so they can be returned to their owners.

An ID tag on your pet's collar is the easiest method. The tag should include your name, address, telephone number and the pet's name. If there's extra space, the phone number of the veterinarian is also a good idea. Pets can also be microchipped.

Many humane societies and veterinarians have a scanner which identifies if an animal has a microchip. If there's a microchip, a phone call is made to identify the owner.


A 1 year old, neutered male Cattle Dog mix weighing 30 lbs.

I am a cowboy-rough around the edges and ready for adventure! I like action and I like interacting with people on my terms. I was a stray from Clarendon who was brought here on February 13. I have an unknown history with children and other animals. I need to go to a home with kids 12 and up and dog-to-dog introductions will be important.


A 2 year old, spayed female, domestic short hair black weighing 7 lbs.

I am a little shy at first and like to hide in warm places. Please take a few moments to visit me and see what a love I really am. Patience is going to be necessary and a quiet home is best. I arrived at RCHS on November 20 as a stray and now am ready to go to my forever home. The RCHS is located at 765 Stevens Road in Pittsford. The shelter phone number is 483-6700 and is open Wednesday through Saturday from 1-5 p.m. Visit online at www.rchsvt.org.
