Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Stamford, CT is where we accept animals from - we are the town animal shelter. We adopt out mostly locally in Fairfield and Westchester Counties, but we do out of area adoptions as well with thorough checks.
About Our Shelter:In 2006, we became Connecticut’s first Municipal Animal Control Shelter to add the word “Care” to our title. Our treatment and attitude toward our pets is top notch. While in shelter care, it is our intention to make each adoptable animal’s life count, to make his or her stay bearable and comfortable until a loving home is found.
We have a no-kill philosophy which simply means, every adoptable animal is guaranteed a second chance. Dogs are given fair evaluations by a highly respected, professional dog trainer and behaviorist. With this ambitious approach, adoption becomes the most vital aspect for our success, therefore we value and are most appreciative of your support, through either adoption or referrals to friends and family.
In an effort to reduce the population of homeless animals, we promote spaying & neutering. Therefore it is the shelter policy that NO animal leaves our shelter unaltered.
We shelter a variety of animals, primarily dogs and cats but also rabbits, ferrets, little furries like hamsters & guinea pigs and on occasion, birds & reptiles.
You can find our featured pet of the week in the Sunday edition of The Stamford Advocate and the weekly Stamford Times newspapers.
We work to create a mutually beneficial environment for animals and the public at large. We provide rabies control, impound stray animals, investigate and prevent cruelty to animals, attend to sick or injured animals, and find homes for adoptable animals.
