Humane Society opens doors on Sundays

We heard from our visitors and adopters how nice it would be if the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) shelter was open on Sundays. For many, Sunday is a good day to visit with the animals and adopt. As a result, the shelter is open both weekend days.

The shelter is now open Wednesday through Sunday, 12 - 5 and closed on Monday and Tuesday. We hope these new hours will allow people more flexibility for visiting and adopting our animals. If you have any questions, please contact the shelter at 802-483-6700.

1 year old. Spayed Female. Guinea Pig.

My sister Goldie and I were surrendered to the shelter because our family did not have the time to give us that we needed. We are very sweet little girls and love to talk to each other as the day goes by. If you are looking for two great friends please consider us.


3 year old. Neutered Male. Domestic Short Hair Brown and Black Tiger.

My owner surrendered me to RCHS on April 30 because their living conditions had changed and I could no longer stay with them. I am just an absolute lover boy. I have lived with other cats before but I tend to let them know that I am in charge. I would fit in nicely to most homes because of my personality and because I have lived with dogs and children.

Oh my goodness, here I am again! My owner surrendered me because of health reasons and she could not take care of me any longer. I am an absolute love and feel like I have been on vacation and now back am with all my friends here at the shelter. I do have to say that I would really love to find a forever home.


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

As you will notice I have a notched ear because I was thought to be a feral kitty. Much to my new friend's surprise they discovered I was very friendly and affectionate. They brought me to RCHS to find a home where I can have lots of attention and do all the things that a kitty should do. I can be a little snippety at first with other cats but after a short time I am fine.
