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.

To learn more about how you can help the animals, please visit our website at www.rchsvt.org or call RCHS at 802-483-9171.


5 year old. Neutered Male. Pit Bull mix.

If Lunker means chubby and chummy then I am perfectly named. I enjoyed living with a family and am kind of anxious here - whining and barking are my way of saying 'help!" When with people here at the shelter I am quite tractable and I love to play fetch. I hope that my new family will take my weight loss goals seriously, I could stand to drop about 10-15 pounds.


6 year old. Female. Quaker Parakeet.

I'm very sweet and I know lots of tricks. I'm very social and enjoy sitting on your finger and riding around on your shoulder. I love to be held and I'm very smart. I can be vocal, too. I can live for many years so if you are thinking of adopting me please do some research about my breed so you're knowledgeable and prepared.


5 year old. Neutered Male. Domestic Medium Hair Buff & White.

I'm a laid back fella who likes to be petted. I came to RCHS as a stray from Rutland City on December 23 and the staff gave me a fun name. I'm a little set in my ways but lots of cats are, right? I get along well with other cats and I'm super handsome.


7 year old. Neutered Male. Domestic Short Hair Brown Tiger.

I'm a very sweet (actually very, very sweet) guy who can be independent at times. I like to be held and petted but only for a short time. But I always come back for a few more scratches. I don't like other cats so I need to go to a home where I am the only cat so I can be king of my castle.
