PITTSFORD-The Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) began new spring and summer hours this week. The RCHS shelter is now open Wednesday through Sunday, noon-5 p.m., and closed on Monday and Tuesday. If you have any questions please contact the shelter at 802-483-6700 or visit www.rchsvt.org.
Eight month old. Neutered male. German Shepherd mix.
I am a handsome young dog who is going to be a big fellow when all is said and done. I am eager to please but have a lot of catching up to do in the socialization and manners department. I am playing with other dogs here at the shelter and would probably benefit from having a well-socialized, confident canine friend as a role-model. The people who work here have taught me to sit and I am eager to learn more.
Two year old. Neutered male. Shar Pei mix.
I am a silly looking fellow (don't my ears look like they belong to a much smaller dog?) with a goofy attitude to match. I enjoy the company of people and can get very excitable but I play nicely and like to get petted. I am not 100 percent comfortable with people handling me, like what might happen at a vet's office or groomer. As to living with another dog, an introduction would be very important.
Three year old. Spayed female. Domestic Short Hair Black.
I arrived at the shelter as a stray on Feb. 10 and wasn't feeling so good. After some meds and quiet time I am ready to go home. I am a petite little girl with such a sweet attitude. I am hoping my new family will give me lots of love, keep me inside only and enjoy my company. I am sharing a room with other kitties and am happy to have their company.
Five year old. Spayed female. Domestic Short Hair Dilute Tortoiseshell.
I think you will agree that I have some wonderful markings and I have the personality to go along with them. I have lived with other cats and really enjoy their company. I love to be brushed and a nice gentle scratch under the chin is always appreciated. I am hoping for a family that will keep me safe and forever happy.
