Autumn – Celebrating Animal Adoption!

With two consecutive fall months promoting adoption from local animal shelters, it’s easy to see that Autumn is the season for spreading the word about all the great animals in local shelters just waiting for their own forever homes.

Pope Memorial Frontier Animal Shelter is welcoming back volunteers. There is much to be done at a shelter – always! There are daily chores like cleaning, laundry, and dishes to other activities like walking and playing with the animals to help them become more adoptable.



If interested, please print and mail a volunteer application. (Must be 18+ years old to apply.)

Call the shelter for more information: 802-754-2228




As always, we remain greatly appreciative of Northeast Kingdom Online.
A VERY BIG thank you to NEKO
for their skilled, creative, and timely maintenance of our website.
Our gratitude is indeed ongoing and never-ending!



Current Hours – Updated September 29, 2021


We currently continue to operate on an appointment basis. This allows time for us to care for our current residents - our friendly felines and active canines – as well as plan adequate time for your visit and meeting. This may be subject to change so please check back for any updates.
Please call for an appointment to discuss adoptions and to meet your potential new family member – 802-754-2228. If we are busy taking care of our animals and do not answer the phone right away, please leave a detailed message and someone will return your call as soon as possible. Currently, surrenders are also by appointment only.
If you are interested in adopting one of our many fine furry residents, please print an application and mail it to the shelter at: 4473 Barton Orleans Road, Orleans, VT 05860. (Online applications are not currently available.)
