About Our Rescue Group:

Little Pink Shelter is a registered 501(c)3 charity.
Based in Westport, CT, The Little Pink Shelter was started by two friends united by breast cancer and their love of dogs. Their battles with breast cancer behind them, these women joined forces to help shelter dogs win their fight for a second chance at life. Today, The Little Pink Shelter is directed solely by Holly who works closely with select shelters and rescues in Arkansas, where too many wonderful dogs are put down because of lack of space. Since founding The Little Pink Shelter, Holly has placed more than 1600+ dogs and puppies into loving homes.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do not have a facility in Connecticut, so you can only visit The Little Pink Shelter on the internet. Our dogs and puppies are usually fostered in the south and the overwhelming majority of them are adopted out before they arrive so they can go right home after transport and begin bonding with their new forever families! Check out the "Love Fests" Albums on our Facebook Fan Page!
We are always in search of short term foster homes up here in Connecticut and the surrounding states!!! If you're not ready for a full 15+ year commitment, or if you have always wanted to help in some way, please consider short-term fostering a dog or puppy for us! Write us for more info!

Our Adoption Process:

The first step in the process is submitting an online application located through a link in each pet's description, or from our website at www.pinkshelter.com under the "How to Adopt" tab. Whenever possible we like to begin review with a vet reference. After that, we will be in touch to set up a lengthy phone interview where each of us has the opportunity to ask all our questions of the other. Home visits are at our discretion. Once approved, there is a contract and transport is arranged if necessary.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
