ADOPTION POLICY
PLEASE CALL HANNA WITH ANY ADOPTION QUESTIONS & INQUIRIES AT 203-597-1236. Completion of an application does not mean that you are approved. You MUST have a veterinarian reference to adopt. When we check a veterinarian reference on your current or past pets, we are looking for a vaccine history, spay/neuter and if you have followed through with veterinarian recommendations for your pet(s). All pets must be up to date on vaccines and spayed or neutered. For adoption of DOGS you must own your own home.

We choose the home that best suits the pet. We reserve the right to refuse an adoption. Some of our animals have been through some kind of trauma in their short lives. Our animals can not speak for themselves, so as their guardians we speak for them.


Thank you for your interest in Rose Hope Animal Refuge, a 501(c)3 non-kill shelter located at PETSMART on 475 Bank Street in Waterbury, CT 06708. Rose Hope Animal Refuge Never Leaves Any Animal Behind.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
