About Us

Our Mission

The Windham County Humane Society (WCHS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring the safety and well-being of animals and enhancing the relationship between individuals and pets through adoption, education, advocacy, compassion and promotion of animal welfare.

A second chance for pets

WCHS helps stray, abandoned, neglected and surrendered pets by giving them a second chance at a healthy, happy life. WCHS animals receive excellent health care from our staff and local veterinarians. Because we are committed to reducing the number of unwanted animals in Windham County, all animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. WCHS does not euthanize for time or space – all adoptable animals stay safely at WCHS until the right new home comes along.

We are community-supported

WCHS relies on our local community for support.  Other than grant funding, WCHS receives no funding from national humane organizations or from state or federal sources. We deeply appreciate donations from our wonderfully supportive community. Click here to donate.  Thank you!
