Central Vermont Humane Society shelters and adopts domestic dogs, cats, and small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs.

We offer dog training classes, low-cost microchips, and education to animal guardians. CVHS also works to prevent and address animal cruelty and neglect, and supports legislative efforts to protect animals in Vermont. 

CVHS has dozens of volunteers and interns who donate thousands of hours of service each year. Volunteer activities at CVHS include providing foster care for animals (particularly puppies and kittens), office work, events, landscaping and maintenance, and direct care for the animals.

Our work is only possible because of your support. Every contribution – whether it be time, talent, supplies or financial resources – has a real impact on the animals.  Thank you for your support!
