The 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.
The WCHS Pet Care Assistance Program includes:
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. Occasionally, we may have other types of pet food or cat litter. 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.
Basic Veterinary Medicines: Flea / tick treatments, and dewormers are available on a sliding scale based on need.
Vaccination clinics: Held once a month, on a Friday. Rabies, distemper, and other vaccinations available. Please check our website for the next clinic date, or ask a staff member.
To qualify for the WCHS Pet Care Assistance Program, one must:
- provide proof of Windham County residency
- provide proof of limited or fixed income (SSI / Disability / pay stub)
- agree to work with WCHS to have all family pets spayed or neutered
- agree not to acquire any more pets while receiving assistance
- agree to inform WCHS if financial status changes such that assistance is no longer needed
Once approved, participants are invited to visit WCHS once per month during normal business hours to pick up food and/or other supplies for their pets. Our hours are:
● Wed – Sun 12:00 – 5:00pm
● Mon & Tues Closed to the public, no pet assistance on these days.
