Happy New Year to All! 


 From all the creatures at PMFAS

--- All the pups and kitties, and oh yes – staff, volunteers, and board members too –
we wish everyone a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year!

We thank all those who supported us in so many different ways throughout 2021.
It is only through your generosity, kindness and thoughtfulness
that we are able to find homes for over 300 animals each year.
Thank you also to all who adopted their new family member from us.

Thanks for adopting and not shopping!
A special thank you to NEKO for maintaining our website.
Your generosity and professionalism are key to helping us get the word out

about all the animals looking for their own homes.

While we anticipate that 2022 will bring more unknown challenges as well as some celebrations,
we continue to be committed to find loving and compassionate forever homes
for those furry friends that become guests at our shelter throughout the New Year.

Our best wishes and heartfelt gratitude to you all!





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!
