Keeping Your Furry Friends Healthy & Safe this Holiday Season

Everyone at Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter wants the holidays to be a happy time for you and your pet, and not a time for an emergency visit to your veterinarian. The food and decorations that make the holidays so much fun for us can sometimes be hazardous for our pets. We want you to be aware of some of these hazards so that you can plan accordingly and prevent any potential problems. When in doubt, common sense is always a good strategy! Let’s keep your pets healthy and safe this holiday season.

Shelter Update regarding COVID-19


We continue to work under the guidance and protocols established by state and local health authorities. In adhering to these guidelines and in accordance with the Governor’s recent mandate, as of November 10, we have suspended all out of state adoptions. At this time, the shelter continues to remain closed to the public. We hope you all understand that these measures are in place temporarily to protect everyone’s health and safety. Of course, 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.


Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all strive to successfully get through these challenges.
