The Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) is offering a low-cost cat spay\Neuter clinic on Friday, June 24, to families with limited incomes or pet owners dealing with a large number of cats. Cat spays are $35 and cat neuters are $30. Rabies and Distemper vaccines are $5.

Applicants must be residents of Rutland County. The clinic will be held at the Brandon Senior Citizens Center on 1591 Forestdale Road (also known as Route 73E). A $25 deposit per animal is required, via cash, check or credit card.

If you do not show up for the clinic your deposit will not be returned. Once your application has been approved RCHS will mail a confirmation letter with date, time and pre-surgery instructions. Space is limited so apply early.

If you can afford to pay for spay\Neuter services through your regular veterinary clinic, please do not apply.

Please call RCHS at 483-9171 ext. 206 for an application or visit our website at www.rchsvt.org.


Four year old. Spayed female. German Shepherd.

I am a gorgeous German Shepherd who knows SIT and DOWN and can catch a ball in mid-air. Since I have been here the staff has found that I am easy to handle and like to cool off in a pool during hot weather. I appear to be ok with the other animals in the shelter and should be able to fit into a multi-animal home. Anyone who thinks animal shelters don't have purebreds will think twice if they see me.


Three year old. Neutered male. Labrador Retriever mix.

I am a handsome young dog who learns quickly and is eager to please. I am especially eager to please if my reward includes a TENNIS BALL. WHOO HOO. The staff has noticed that I am quite strong and lack leash manners and basic obedience training. Other animals don't really excite me so I should be able to live in a variety of homes with both two and four-legged friends.
