Today, Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society lives up to its motto of “improving the lives of people and pets.” Each year hundreds of abandoned, neglected, mistreated and stray animals find their way to our shelter. Once here, our caring staff and volunteers make every effort to ensure that the animals are healthy, well adjusted, and ready to be matched with a home that will cherish their pet for the rest of its life — a life all pets deserve.
We serve many communities in Windsor County, Vermont, and also communities in the nearby Upper Connecticut River Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire. Tucked on a hillside of woods and fields in West Windsor, Vermont, the Lucy Mackenzie Humane Society provides care and housing to homeless cats and dogs. LMHS takes in and seeks homes for animals. Some animals stay at the facility for weeks or even months until they are adopted. The shelter does not euthanize animals unless there is a strong medical or behavioral reason to do so. Healthy animals that are good candidates for successful placement stay at the shelter until they find a home.
