Hey friends, my name is Maggie and I am a 2 year old American Staffordshire Terrier who is looking for a special home! I was brought to the shelter when my owner was moving and could not take me along. I have a pretty crazy story that I would like to share with you. When I was in my last home, I was attacked by a bear. I got loose from my owner in the evening and when they went to look for me in the morning, I was found laying by a dumpster in pretty bad shape. I was raced to the vet, treated and was told I would be fine. After seeing a new vet once I arrived at SHS, they told the shelter staff that I was going to be a costly dog for someone someday. I will need a total hip replacement at some point and the knee on that side is also damaged, something that cannot be repaired. WHOA! (You can ask my friends here for more information on my condition) Despite all of this, I am the sweetest girl around. I can be a tad aggressive with certain dogs, however I did live with another dog in my last home. A dog that is submissive and/or not reactive would be my best match, but I would like to have a couple introductions before going home. My favorite pass time is to be with people. I LOVE people! I would prefer a home with older children, though, as I have not been around toddlers. I am hoping for my dream family to come in and adopt me! I know that I could potentially be an expensive dog, but I am hoping that someone out there will realize what a GREAT, loving girl I am and give me the chance at a happy furever home! For more information, please stop in Wed-Sat 12-4:30 or call the shelter and talk with my friends about me! You will be so happy that you found me, PROMISE!

About Springfield Humane Society

About Our Shelter...

We're a small shelter in Vermont covering 11 towns in Windsor County. We have a small but very dedicated staff, and an active volunteer program. We have been rescuing cats and dogs since our inception in 1941, when a wonderful woman turned her barn into a shelter. Since then we've grown quite a bit and have recently redone our entire kennel area - we have sun tubes for natural light, radiant heat in the floors, a music program and an aromatherapy program. All through the generous donations of the public. Our cats live comfortably in community cat rooms where they are free to roam and climb and play - one cat room even has a fully fenced outdoor enclosure. We have acres of field for dog walking, and a small agility course set up in an outdoor kennel. We have a large puppy room, and a larger still puppy play area outside.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our open hours are Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 4:30. We sometimes have pets available for meeting at various fundraisers. Please check our web page or facebook page for information on upcoming events.

Our Adoption Process...

We require a completed adoption application prior to adoption, but you're welcome to come visit our animals any time we're open. Our fees cover all vaccinations, spay/neuter, worming, flea prevention, microchip, collar and ID tag, and are as follows: Cats - $80, $50 for the second. Kittens are $100, $75 for the second. Senior cats (over 7) are by donation. Dogs - small breed adult $175, small breed puppy $250 and up. Large breed adult $150, large breed puppy $200 and up. Senior dogs (8 and over) are by donation. Purebred puppies and adults adoption fees are set per dog. We do not require a home visit, however we will ask for landlord permission if you rent. We rely heavily on vet references, but also ask for personal references.
