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).
2020 Lunch 'N Learn Series
This series is aimed at informing the community about a wide range of topics relating to the wellbeing of animals. The Lunch ‘N Learn gatherings will take place on designated Mondays from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. The first half of the year is scheduled as follows:
February 10: “Wildlife Rehabilitation” with Rose Gale

The Lunch ‘N Learn events take place at the shelter, which is located at 236 Boardman Street in Middlebury, and attendees should bring their own brown bag lunch. They are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is requested as seating is limited. Interested parties may call Hannah Manley at the shelter at 388-1100 ext. 224 or email email@example.com to sign up.
