Hills Food, Shelter & Love
Our shelter is located at 1779 VT Route 7A in Arlington, Vermont. The facility is a single-story building with parking in front and a delivery driveway on the south side. We have handicap parking and handicap accessible entrance. Look for colorful logo sign out front.
Until further notice, visits to our facility are by confirmed appointment only. Those wishing to adopt a companion animal must first submit an online adoption application (go to our website heading Shelter Services), and once your application is approved, we will call to schedule an appointment. SCAC is closed on Mondays, and our staff is available Tuesday through Sunday, 11:00 am until 3:00 pm.
We are closed Mondays, major holidays, and during severe weather conditions. When in doubt, give us a shout!
