During these unsettling times, please remember the homeless animals at the Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS).  Many people ask how they can help so here are a few ideas.  Fostering is a great way to socialize pets and it allows them the opportunity to be loved and spoiled in a family environment.  Studies show pets can lower your blood pressure and stress levels, which is good for all of us.  People with dogs and cats are less likely to be depressed.  Animals also promote healthy childhood development.   Additionally, with animals in foster, the staff will then be able to care for other animals at RCHS.  Monetary donations are always welcome and will be used for food, vaccinations, medical care and everything the animals need while they are in our care.  Click here to donate online.  If you are interested in learning more about fostering a pet during these times, please contact Sue at sue@rchsvt.org or 802.483.6700 ext. 204.
