At Central Vermont Humane Society, it really is all about the animals. We are here to provide a helping hand and temporary home for our animal friends in need. The mission of CVHS is to ensure the humane treatment of all domestic animals and to promote the advancement of animal welfare.
Visit our website www.centralvermonthumane.org for more photos, animals, events, and information.
Hours are Tuesday- Friday 1pm-5pm and Saturday 10am-4pm. CVHS is closed most major holidays. We stop processing adoptions 30 minutes before we close for the day, but try to do same day adoptions!
