Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We find loving forever homes for our dogs here in Connecticut and throughout the northeast.

About Our Rescue Group:

Companions 4 Life Rescue was recently formed by a group of experienced rescuers and volunteers. We take in dogs from the northeast area. Together over the past 8 years, our efforts have helped to save nearly 2,000 dogs. Our dogs are rescued from kill shelters. We also take in dogs that are surrendered by their owners.Our work is tireless and frequently heartbreaking because we cannot save everyone but for each dog that we do save, a life is changed forever.

All of our dogs undergo an initial veterinary screening, and medical treatment as required. Only dogs with socially acceptable behaviors, which can be responsibly placed, will be offered for adoption. All of our dogs offered for adoption have been vaccinated, spayed or neutered, started on heart worm prevention and have received treatment for any prevailing medical or health conditions. All of our dogs are microchipped as well.

Come Meet our Pets:

Potential adopters are encouraged to meet our dogs that are being fostered. Once your application to adopt is approved, the adoption coordinator will contact you to schedule a visit. We do not have a local shelter. All dogs are fostered in private homes.

Our Adoption Process:

Thank you for choosing to adopt! Each dog adopted means another life can be saved! In order to adopt one of our dogs, we require a completed adoption application, a phone interview, home visit, and veterinary reference check. Our adoption fee is $425 for adults, $475 for puppies, and $275 for seniors.


The first step of the process is completing an application. Once the application is completed and submitted, it will be reviewed. Please allow a minimum of 48 hours to complete this task. Thank you!

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.
