Our Vision

A Strategic Vision for Today & Tomorrow

Windham County Humane Society is working to create a vibrant, well-run and financially secure community-supported animal shelter that offers a variety of programs, services and facilities that promote the well-being and dignity of pets and other companion animals, and support their responsible stewardship by human caregivers.

Through our efforts we aspire to:

  • End animal cruelty, suffering and abandonment
  • Increase the capacity of local residents, regardless of socio-economic means, to properly and humanely care for their animals
  • Cultivate a strong sense of community ownership in, awareness of, and advocacy for animal welfare issues

A Steadfast Commitment to ‘The Five Freedoms’

Through our efforts we strive to provide to animals:

  • Freedom from hunger and thirst
  • Freedom from discomfort
  • Freedom from pain, injury and disease
  • Freedom to express normal behavior
  • Freedom from fear and distress
