Pet Care Assistance

A Helping HandThe Windham County Humane Society’s Pet Care Assistance Program is designed to help Windham County residents who are struggling to provide adequate care for their companion animals. It is our goal to keep pets in their homes whenever possible.  Click here for the Pet Care Assistance application form.

The WCHS Pet Care Assistance Program includes:

Vaccination clinics: Held once a month, on a Tuesday.  Rabies, distemper, and other vaccinations available. Click here to learn more about our clinic dates and how to sign up. 

Pet Food Assistance:  Thanks to the generous support of our community, bags of dry dog and cat food are available to supplement what food you are able to provide on your own. Our supply changes from month to month, based on the donations we receive. We recommend calling ahead to ensure we have what you need before you make the trip. PCA Participants can come in for food once per month.

Basic Preventative Care: Flea/tick treatments, and de-wormers are available on a sliding scale based on need. PCA Participants can come in any day we are open to purchase these items.
