Adoption Process

Adopting an animal from the RCHS is a simple process. After you see an animal on-line or in the newspaper, we invite you to visit with them in person and learn more about them through our Adoption Books and talking to staff members. After you select an animal whom you are interested in adopting, you will be asked to fill out our Adoption Questionnaire. Please be prepared to provide the following pieces of information: Your veterinarian's name and phone number and evidence of homeownership (i. e. mortgage stub or tax bill) or your landlord’s name and phone number. The Rutland County Humane Society is responsible for placing our animals into the most appropriate homes possible. This responsibility may result in the denial of an adoption at the discretion of the Director of Operations or the Executive Director.
