Keep the animals warm with winter fuel raffle

Nothing feels more welcoming than coming in to a warm house after being out in the cold. Imagine how a stray animal feels when they come into the shelter at the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) after being cold, lost and hungry, sometimes for days or weeks. You can help provide that welcomed warmth by participating in the RCHS Winter Fuel Raffle.

To learn more about how you can help the animals and win a $250 gift certficate for fuel oil donated by Patten Oil or cash prizes, please visit our website at www.rchsvt.org or call RCHS at 483-9171.


1 year old. Neutered Male. Collie mix.

I am a good-looking dog who is quick and eager to please. I love to play and can make a mighty good game out of mopping the floor. I know sit and shake and look forward to meeting you. P.S. I ride very well in a car.


1.5 year old. Spayed Female. Labrador Retriever mix.

I am a pretty dog who's always on the alert. I have to be-I was abandoned here at RCHS on January 2 and I don't know what's coming next. I get very excited around people (it's nice to be around people who offer me treats and walks) and I find it hard to control myself sometimes.


1.5 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Long Hair Calico.

I am a little shy when you first meet me so be patient and offer a few soft spoken words and a gentle hand and I am sure you will fall in love with me. I am hoping for a nice warm snuggle spot in my new home to watch all the activity around me.


1.5 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Tortoiseshell.

My owner had to surrender me with my baby because they had too many pets and could not afford to take care of us all. I have lived with dogs and other cats and would get along with children. My favorite toy is a ball on a string.
