News from the RCHS

The Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) is partnering with Vermont Companion Animal Neutering (VT-CAN) to get Rutland County cats spayed and neutered. VT-CAN, a low cost spay\Neuter clinic located in Middlesex, is a long drive from Rutland County. To help out, RCHS and VT-CAN are working together to make it easier for cat owners.

By dropping your cat at RCHS, volunteers will transport your cat to VT-CAN where he or she will be spayed or neutered and given a rabies shot, and returned to RCHS later that day. There are three dates to choose from: April 7, May 5 and June 2. Prior registration is required and VT-CAN fees for services apply. To register, call RCHS at 483-6700. For more information, visit www.rchsvt.org or for more information about VT-CAN visit www.vt-can.org.


A 3 year old, spayed female hound mix weighing 45 lbs.

I am a beautiful girl-a bit of a wallflower-but please don't be taken in by just my looks unless you have the time and energy for the next year or so to really commit to me.

I was adopted from RCHS on February 20 and then returned by my adoptive family after a hectic week that ended with me at the vet office with a cut foot. I was scared and I snapped at a stranger who tried to look at my foot after I got the stitches. My owner got scared of me and returned me. Before that, I was a stray from Wallingford.

I am a young dog in need of a second chance with someone who understands dogs and can help a nervous dog to become more confident and less likely to growl or snap under stress. In the brief time I was adopted, I showed a clear preference for women and also showed that I need time and lots of slow, positive encouragement to re-condition me.
