About Our Rescue Group:

Pawtectors is a not-for-profit, no-kill, animal rescue who is operated only by our dedicated volunteers. We are a small group of volunteers who work hard to place abandoned, abused, or shelter dogs on death row into new, loving homes. We are a multi-state rescue. We work with very high-kill pounds all over with dogs and puppies that do not have much chance at living more than a week after arriving there... and we do take in owner surrenders. Adoption fee includes age appropriate vaccinations, deworming, HW test/prevention/treatment, spay/neuter (typically at 5 months and older), and any other needed vet care. We strive to socialize, train, and care for our animals the best we can until they are placed into their forever homes. All of our dogs are temperament tested and we work on all of their issues.

We are a network of foster homes, meaning we do not have a facility. All people interested in an animal must first fill out an application and be pre-approved before setting up a meeting.

Come Meet our Pets:

We have an adoption event once a month on weekends at pet supply stores around CT. Please check our home page at: to find the days we have these events and where.

You can also set up indivdual appointments with us, where an adoption counselor or rescue representative will meet with you and the animal you are interested in adopting. Because there are only 4 people who do this, we must have a completed (and approved) application sent to us before we can set up an indivdual interaction. This is not required for the adoption events... everyone is welcome to come to those!!

Our Adoption Process:

If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please e-mail as soon as possible. We will get back to you as soon as we can. To adopt an animal, you must fill out an application and must be pre-approved before meeting any of the animals and all viewings are by appointment only. All animals require an adoption donation which covers the cost of any vet care they have recieved while in our care. Adoption fee includes age appropriate vaccinations, deworming, HW test/prevention/treatment, spay/neuter (typically at 5 months and older), and any other needed vet care.
Please note that the adoption fees may vary by the amount of vet care, medications, grooming, or other treatment each dog needs. Please check individual bios for more information.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
