Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter is welcoming back volunteers. There is much to be done at a shelter – always! There are daily chores like cleaning, laundry, and dishes to other activities like walking and playing with the animals to help them become more adoptable.



If interested, please print and mail a volunteer application. (Must be 18+ years old to apply.)

Call the shelter for more information: 802-754-2228




As always, we remain greatly appreciative of Northeast Kingdom Online.
A VERY BIG thank you to NEKO
for their skilled, creative, and timely maintenance of our website.
Our gratitude is indeed ongoing and never-ending!



Current Hours – Updated April 11, 2022


We continue to operate on an appointment basis. This allows time for us to care for our current residents - our friendly felines and active canines – as well as plan adequate time for your visit.


Please call for an appointment to discuss adoptions and to 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. While the staff is here from early morning until early evening, we plan appointments primarily between 11 AM and 2 PM. During other hours, we are busy taking care of the animals.

Currently, surrenders are also by appointment only.
