HSCC is a private and independent 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization serving both Chittenden and Grand Isle Counties whose mission is to foster compassionate treatment of animals and to prevent animal suffering. We're funded solely by the generous contributions of local businesses, foundations, and individuals just like you! We receive no local, state, or federal funding for the services we provide. We are registered, inspected, and authorized annually to operate as an animal shelter by the State of Vermont.
1. Fill out an Adopter Profile (click here for the cat, dog, or smallie profile). This information will help us help you to find the best match! 2. Chat with one of our adoption counselors. We can help guide you to the animals who would be a good match or tell you more about an animal if you've already chosen one. 3. Adopt your new best friend! Once a good match has been found, we'll set up an adoption appointment to finalize the match, go over all the animal's records, and answer any questions you have.
