Vermont Furs is a furry group centered in Northern Vermont in the United States.
Vermont Furs is a furry group centered in Vermont in the United States.
Originally, a Yahoo-based mailing list was constructed Jul 9, 2003 by Sarge Abernathy. The site is for local Vermont furs to schedule events and to communicate. The site, due to the low population of furs in Vermont, was not used much. As of August 16, 2005 there were 17 members in the Yahoo group.
There is a registered Vermont Furs group at Anthrochat under the name #VermontFurs. The current administrator is Sarge. A seldom used, and currently unregistered room, in the FurNet IRC network is visited from time to time.
As of May 28, 2005 a LiveJournal community group called vermontfurs was established by Sarge. There are 5 members to the group as of August 16, 2005. As of January 2014 the live journal has been discontinued.
In mid-2013 Vermont Furs welcomed new moderators. Rsrallygrl (Rally Corgi aka Azucar Alejibre) Ahzlon, and Zytx organized monthly meets with an emphasis on member suggestions.
In January 2014 the group had grown to 200+ members on furaffinity.net. Monthly meets were held and the group was very active. The group added a website (now defunct) and a facebook page. The FA page was updated rarely and the Yahoo group was no longer used.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, meets were largely cancelled in early 2020.
In October of 2021, Ahzlon passed away from Stage 4 cancer.
Rally appeared to step down from managing the group on Dec. 1st, 2021, stating publicly, "I think it’s time to let someone else take the helm, it’s time for some fresh ideas and new blood." However, she retained sole ownership of the Telegram group, Facebook page, Twitter, and other logins. Over the next year, "Community Liaisons" were introduced to help facilitate the group's changing needs during the Coronavirus pandemic, but ultimately the group would oust Rally in December of 2022 due to multiple allegations of rape, sexual assault, and grooming behaviors.
