Animals need special care during warm weather

The Rutland County Humane Society would like to remind you that pets need special care during the hot, summer months. When the temperature rises dogs and cats should be inside, with air conditioning or fans, or in the shade if they're outside. All animals need access to lots of clean, cold water to help them stay hydrated.


1 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Brown and Black Tiger. 5 lbs.

Oh, what big eyes I have. I'm a tiger named after a beautiful park in Maine. I don't belong in a park though; I like my comfy set up in a basket. After being a stray, this is more my speed, but I sure will come out for a greeting.

2 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Tortoiseshell Tiger. 8 lbs.

Mature cat looking for a forever home with lots of love to share. I am very affectionate with people but can be a little bossy with other cats. I am declawed in the front so you don't have to worry about the furniture. I have the best colors and love to have my belly rubbed.


7 year old. Spayed Female. Siberian Husky mix. 34 lbs.

I am an affectionate and playful dog who really gets into my toys. I like to play and am learning how to fetch and drop it. This won't take long since I am smart and already know how sit and sit pretty.


2 year old. Neutered Male. German Shepherd mix. 74 lbs.

I am a big, goofy guy who wants to be in on the action and really likes people. I was surrendered to the custody of RCHS by the Town of West Haven after they had picked me up and no one claimed me after 7 days. I was brought here on June 9. I know Sit, Shake, and Sit Pretty and I was neutered when I got to RCHS so somebody spent some time with me in my former life.
