Founded in 1959, for over 50 years the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) has been dedicated to advocating for and working towards a responsible and humane community. RCHS provides shelter and adoption opportunities for pets who are homeless and promotes animal welfare through community programs that benefit both animals and people. RCHS is a private, non-profit organization serving the communities of Rutland County, VT. RCHS receives no financial support from any national or local humane organization. Programs are supported solely by donations, memberships and fund raising events.
Our adoption process is pretty easy! First, stop by and meet the animal you're interested in adopting. When you find one we'll ask you to fill out a brief adoption questionnaire. The staff will process it and, if you're approved, often you can take home your new family member the same day. Visit our website for more information about the process. http://rchsvt.org/available-animals/adoptions/
