Central Vermont Humane Society

CVHS no longer needs donations of regular dry pet food.
We receive weekly donations of dry pet food from the Science Diet Shelter Feeding Program. Thanks, Hill’s!

All donated dry foods that CVHS does not need are sent to the Pawsitive Pantry, a food program for needy pets in Central Vermont.
