The Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society began caring for the unwanted companion animals of our region in 1915. We currently operate a small shelter, but are going to be building a new one in the near future.
Until recently, we were a limited-admissions shelter, but we have improved our adoption program, consequently adopting out more animals and able to take in more animals. We are in the process of re-creating ourselves, so be on the lookout for great new programs and pictures of our new shelter!
We serve the following communities in Vermont: Barnard, Hartford, (White River Jct., Wilder, Quechee) Plymouth, Pomfret, Royalton, Stockbridge, Strafford, and Woodstock. We also take in many animals from Upper Valley Communities in New Hampshire.
