The Good Neighbor Program is a service we offer in partnership with homeless, domestic violence, and other local human service organizations. Designed to provide temporary shelter, free of charge, for beloved pets during times of crisis and transition in the lives of their owners, the program includes veterinary care, absolute confidentiality, and an assurance of exceptional care. The program runs for two weeks, after which the animals are returned to their owners if the time of crisis or emergency has resolved. On occasion, an owner will decide to relinquish their pet at the conclusion of the program.
During a Good Neighbor Program pet’s stay, they receive any needed vaccines, spay/neuter surgery, a warm place to rest, healthy meals, and regular TLC - all at no cost to the pet's owner. Owners must be a resident of Chittenden or Grand Isle county and working with a local human service organization to qualify. This program is completely confidential.
