We're looking for a volunteer to take our broken down boxes and other recycling to the Gleason Road Transfer Station in Rutland once a month. Use of your own car is required.

Stop by the shelter and say hi. We look forward to seeing you.
Six years old. Spayed Female. Beagle. 32 lbs.
I am a chubby love bug. Many Beagles are more interested in sniffing and scenting than people but I am wiser than most. I know the value of a good cuddle. I am a stray from Brandon and I was found in the garage of a good samaritan during a recent cold spell and after asking around town after my owner, this good soul brought me here on Jan. 12. I have no known history with children or other animals, but I am an easy going soul and I would probably fit pretty well into a home with other animals and kids over age 7. A fenced-in yard will make it easier for you to contain me. Like my name?
At first the staff wanted to name me Tick because of my generous proportions but my fondness for petting and attention persuaded them to give me a cuter handle. Nonetheless, my weight is still an issue and I will need regular exercise to trim down.
One year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Black and White. 6 lbs.
I am a bit of a shy kitty when it comes to new things but please don't hold that against me. I am really a very sweet little girl and just love attention. It will be very important that my new family is patient with me and keeps me inside. Outside is too big for me. If you are looking for a lap kitty to watch TV with or snuggle with while you read your favorite book, look no further. Stop by for a visit and I am sure you will fall in love.
