The mission of the Humane Society of Chittenden County (HSCC) is to foster compassionate treatment of animals and to prevent animal suffering.

Shelter Wish List

High Priority Items:

Canned cat and dog food (we are always in need of wet food!)
We accept all types of wet cat and dog food, ie.: Friskies, 9 Lives, Fancy Feast and Alpo etc. But we also like to offer higher quality brands, ie.: Triumph, Fussie Cat, ProNature Holistic, Eaglepack, Wellness, Zignature etc. These brands don’t have any by-products, additives, or dyes (food coloring). While these brands tend to be more expensive, they help our animals maintain a healthy diet which combats stress and boosts immunity in our population.

Feliway diffuser refills for our cats
Feliway is a synthetic copy of the feline facial pheromone, used by cats to mark their territory as safe and secure. By mimicking the cat’s natural facial pheromones, Feliway creates a state of familiarity and security in the cat’s local environment. As a result, Feliway can help comfort and reassure cats while they cope with a challenging situation and help prevent or reduce the stress caused by a change in their environment. We use Feliway diffusers in each of our cat rooms. Click here to purchase diffuser refills for our kitties.

Essential oils for our dogs
The scents of vanilla, patchouli, chamomile, lavender, and Sandalwood can have a calming effect on the animals in our care. Note: Currently we have plenty of lavender and need the other scents

Cleaning supplies
Paper towels, liquid dish soap, and 45-gallon lawn and leaf bags or kitchen trash bags (drawstring)
