About Our Shelter:

The New Britain Pound is funded through the City of New Britain.

Services provided include information on adoptions and lost and found pets, investigations of complaints on wildlife and domestic animals, education to residents on laws pertaining to animals, pick-up of deceased animals, and a number of other services.

The regular hours of service are; Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Saturday from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Adoption hours when someone will be at the pound are Saturdays from 10-12 & Wednesdays from 3 to 6 pm. ****Please be aware that if you are interested in adopting...ACT IMMEDIATELY.....***

We encourage all adopters to spay or neuter their new family member if it hasn't already been done prior to adoption. Please remember that you should make a lifetime commitment to your pet. If your living conditions are not stable, please think twice before adopting a pet so that you may not be forced to give your pet away down the road. Always remember that pets need food, water and shelter available to them. Treat your pet right by being a responsible owner and they will be your best friend!

Please note that only the animals at the New Britain Pound will be posted here.

Thank you for considering adopting from the New Britain Pound.

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.
