Lyme Disease and Heartworm Prevention


April showers bring May flowers and springtime also brings awareness to a number of pet health issues. Two very important health issues to learn about are Lyme Disease and Heartworm Disease. As a matter of fact, April is recognized as Lyme Disease Prevention and National Heartworm Awareness Month. These two diseases seem to have become just as serious in northern New England as in warmer parts of the country.

Shelter Update regarding COVID-19


We continue to work under the guidance and protocols established by state and local health authorities. With this in mind, while the shelter remains closed to the public, we still welcome any inquiries regarding adoptions. If you are interested in adopting one of our many fine furry residents, please fill out an application and send it by mail to the shelter at: 4473 Barton Orleans Road, Orleans, VT 05860. (Online applications are not currently available.)

Please call for an appointment to discuss adoptions and meet your potential new family member – 802-754-2228. If we are busy taking care of our animals and do not answer the phone right away, please leave a detailed message and someone will return your call as soon as possible. As has been the case for several months, please be prepared to wear a face covering while meeting with a staff member in the shelter. Currently, surrenders are also by appointment only.

We hope you all understand that these measures are in place temporarily to protect everyone’s health and safety. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we all strive to successfully get through these challenges.
