Pet of the Week

WVTK Pet of the Week On Hold

As we are in unprecedented times, the WVTK Pet of the Week has been put on hold for the foreseeable future.  When it’s safe to do so … we will bring back the WVTK Pet of the Week in an effort to help find homes for as many pets as possible.

 

Operations Update from Homeward Bound

Adoptions
As much as we would like to see each and every animal in our care exit the building and enter a kind and loving home where they can weather this storm, we don’t believe this is a reasonable approach at this time.  Doing so would contradict what we are being asked, and may soon be mandated to do, which is to stay home.  Adoptions mean trips to the vet, trips to the pet food store, and the list goes on.  We cannot in good faith get behind this right now.

Strays
We WILL still be available to take in strays from the community.  Please call the shelter at 802-388-1100 to make intake arrangements.

Surrenders
We will handle owner surrenders on a case by case basis.  Families should call 388-1100 to discuss their specific situation with a shelter staff member first.

Pet Food
If providing food for a pet is an issue, we are keeping a supply of dog, cat, and small animal food on our front porch.  Please take what you need.
