“We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves,” the Springfield Humane Society states.

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 in the Andover, Baltimore, Cavendish, Chester, Grafton, Londonderry, Ludlow, Springfield, Weathersfield, Weston, and Windsor areas of Vermont. Through public education, we advocate for a humane community by promoting responsible pet ownership and prevention of cruelty to animals.

The Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) organization that relies on the generosity of donors to further its mission.

The event on Saturday will be held in-person as well as live-streamed and feature performances by Uplift Acrobatics, Bill Brink, and more! Light appetizers will be provided by local businesses including: The Springfield Food Co-op and Sheri’s Place. The event will also feature a “Puppy Kissing Booth!”

During the month of April, original artwork by many talented artists will be displayed in the Great Hall art space in Springfield (enter from the Pearl Street side) and online bidding is open at: Go.rallyup.com/art-for-a-paws. There’s truly art for everyone, from sculpture and mixed media to traditional paintings on canvas.
