Come Meet our Pets:

Franklin County Humane Society is located at 30 Sunset Meadow in Saint Albans Vermont. We are open Tuesday through Saturday 11am to 4pm.

Our Adoption Process:

All potential adopters must fill out an adoption application. These can be found at http://www.franklincountyhumane.org/adoptionprocess.htm
We also need either a copy of a tax bill (if you own your home)or lease agreement (if you rent to show you are allowed to have animals). Once we have these papers in hand we do a Veterinarian reference on currently owned pets or a personal reference if you have not owned a pet in the last 5 years. Once the application is approved and everyone in the home has met the pet, cats are finalized and dogs get to go on a 5-7 day home visit as a trial period. Cats are $100.00 and that covers spay/neuter, deworming, rabies, distemper and a 3 way test. Dogs are $195.00 and that covers spay/neuter, rabies, distemper, bordatella, deworming, testing and a microchip.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
