Windham County Humane Society

The Windham County Humane Society (WCHS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to (1) ensuring the safety and well-being of animals and (2) enhancing the relationship between individuals and pets through adoption, education, advocacy, compassion and promotion of animal welfare. The shelter has been in operation for over 130 years. WCHS helps lost, stray, abandoned, and surrendered pets by giving them a second chance at a healthy, happy life. All animals who come to the shelter receive the best of care, including full medical examination and vaccinations against disease. No animal coming through our doors is ever given a time limit. We give each pet the opportunity to wait for the right family to arrive. WCHS relies solely on caring community members to support its mission. We receive no funding from national organizations or from state or federal sources.

Adoption Process

WCHS provides an environment where you can view a prospective animal in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Our goal is 100% placement and we work hard with families to find the right fit with an animal. Here are the steps involved in the adoption process: 1. Complete an application: WCHS requires all prospective adopters to complete an application for adoption, which must be approved before you are permitted to adopt an animal. Applicants must be 18 years or older. 2. Select your pet: We have staff and volunteers to assist you in finding the right pet for you and your household. 3. Leave with your pet: We'll send you away with your pet's complete medical records and a bag of his/her food.
