Never quite sure what to get for your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day? 
Looking to find a new and creative way to say “I love you”? 
Let a puppy from the Windham County Humane Society say it for you!

Introducing Valentine Puppy-grams!  

On February 14, a representative from WCHS, assisted by a furry bundle of love, will deliver Lake Champlain chocolates and a personalized card to surprise your special someone.  You let us know when and where to make the “delivery” and we’ll take care of the rest!

Puppies will be wearing little delivery backpacks, which are perfect for carrying engagement rings (hint, hint)!  Puppies can stay and visit with recipients for up to 30 minutes.

Puppy-grams cost $50 (puppy breath included free of charge).  Deliveries can be made to homes or offices in Brattleboro, Vernon, Putney, Newfane, Dummerston, or Guilford. 

Spots are limited, so sign up now via info@windhamcountyhumane.org
or call us at 802-254-2232.

Vermont Humane Lobby Day


Do you care about animals and the passage of laws to protect them from abuse? Then join us for Humane Lobby Day on Tuesday, February 13th, the biggest day of the year for animals in Vermont!

Sponsored by the Humane Society of the Unites States and the Vermont Humane Federation, this event is the one day when animal advocates band together to speak with legislators about strengthening animal cruelty laws and policies and supporting the critical work of local humane societies and rescues that serve our communities. This year our priority bills include legislation to end wildlife hunting competitions, prohibit breed-specific dog bans, improve shelter standards for livestock, and require the use of non-animal testing methods for consumer products. Humane Lobby Day is your chance to show how much animals mean to you and to advocate for laws that will improve their lives.

RSVP today to make big changes for animals in your state!  Last day to register is February 9th.

WCHS has partnered with local Dog Trainer Noel Hoffmann to offer a once a month
Educational Hour to address common behavioral issues that many dog owners
encounter. Through a better understanding of dogs as a species, we can
better understand their behavior. Our goal at WCHS is to find homes for dogs
who need them and then to keep them there.

Some of the topics that will be discussed are:
- How Dogs Experience the world.
- The Fundamental needs of dogs.
- The Importance of Socialization and Training.
- The Special needs of rescue dogs.
- Common Behavioral issues. What is normal and what is not.
- Dogs and the Law, Responsibilities and Consequences.
Noel Hoffmann has multiple certifications and has been training dogs for over
twenty years. She lives in Westminster, VT www.noelhoffmann.com

*This hour is educational and cannot address individual, behavioral issues in

Class is free for WCHS adopters and volunteers.  Open to the general public for a $10 fee per person.  Pre-registration not required.
