Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We serve the towns of New Fairfield and Sherman but do adopt animals to approved adopters outside this area as well.
About Our Shelter:We are a small shelter on the CT/NY border. We have a very small staff but a fairly large number of volunteers who come regularly to care for, socialize, and train our residents. We promote humane education in the community schools and with local Boy/Girl Scout troops. We find homes for over 200 animals a year and growing! We are always in need of more volunteers and supplies. Some of our most common needs are newspaper, cat litter, dry and canned dog food, dry and canned cat food, toys, treats, paper towels, and 30 gallon garbage bags.
