Who are we? 

Our Mission Statement:


The Springfield Humane Society is dedicated to improving the quality of life for animals by providing protection, compassionate care and adoption services 
for homeless animals.  Through public education, we advocate for a humane 
community by promoting responsible pet ownership and prevention of cruelty
to animals.

The SHS is a small, progressive animal welfare organization working out of Springfield, Vermont.

We operate a small shelter handling dogs and cats.


We facilitate rabbits, other small domestic animals and domestic birds that need to be re-homed, getting them to shelters or rescues where they can be properly 

housed and cared for until adopted.


Animals are only euthanized if a veterinarian deems them too ill to humanely save or if their behavior would be a hazard to the community.



We strive to solve problems before animals have to end up at the Shelter, using creative solutions to individual and area wide problems.

SHS is closed to help protect the public and staff during this time.  We're sorry for any inconvenience.  If you have any questions, please call us and leave us a message.
