Playing ball, going for walks, cuddle time... Those are a few of my favorite things... My name is Ella and I am 2 years old. I came in with my six 2 day old puppies after someone found us abandoned on the side of the road! I was a good mom and all my babies found homes a couple of months ago, but here I sit waiting for a family to take me home. I love people a lot, but not other animals so much. I am becoming very stressed here and really need to get out soon! If you are not able to adopt me, but would like to hangout with me, I would be very grateful for that too. I love to play ball and the shelter has a wonderful field for walking. If you are looking to be a one dog household, come meet me and we will be best friends in no time!!

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.
