Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Each event has at least 80 dogs: 40 large breed dogs and 40 puppies. Any dogs not adopted at our event are returned to their rescue or go into our foster program. Our rangers and volunteers will continue to try to find a good home for dogs not adopted out at the event. So far we have found homes for every dog at our events and we would like to continue that proud statistic!
All dogs at our events are spayed or neutered, current on all age appropriate vaccinations, microchipped and assessed for behavior and temperament unless they come from Connecticut municipal pounds or are otherwise noted.
Please fill in our online form if you're interested in adoption so we can help the rescues process your information faster at the event:
Please note that ALL dogs are approved by their rescues at our events, filling in an application does not "hold" a dog for you or guarantee that you will be approved for adoption by the rescue.
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.
