Throughout the year, we host  fundraising events to benefit the shelter.  These events are a critical part of our operating budget and provide us the ability to provide all of the necessary care to each and every animal that enters our shelter.  The events also support our other programs and allow us to offer many services at no cost to the community (i.e. Cruelty Response Program, Lost and Found Services, Humane Education).

Upcoming Events:

Third Monday of each month: Lunch & Learn Events - 12:00-1:00pm. Bring your own lunch.  RSVP required.  Contact Hannah Manley at 802-388-1100 ext. 224 or  to reserve your spot!
