Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Southbury Animal Control is open to adopt animals out to individuals from any state. We serve specifically the town of Southbury as far as rescuing animals and enforcing laws as they pertain to animals. We mainly adopt out dogs, and on occassion we have cats that we have aquired either because they were abandoned or signed over due to illness.
About Our Shelter:The Southbury Animal Control enforces all State laws and Town ordinances relating to animals. We handle calls regarding roaming dog(s), nuisance barking, animal bites/attacks, unreasonable tethering or confining of a dog, validation of current rabies vaccination, licensing laws, leash law ordinance compliance, and conducts routine patrols. Dogs found roaming or lost are brought to the Southbury Pound located in the Town Highway parking lot on Peter Road in the back left corner.
Verbal warnings, written warnings or infractions may be issued pursuant to Chapter 435 of the Connecticut General Statutes.
Southbury Animal Control also handles emergency calls such as reports of animal cruelty, injured dog or cat, and situations involving possible rabid animal exposure to humans or domestic animals. After 4:30 p.m. an animal bite/attack is also considered an emergency.
We also handle orphan animals and orphan wildlife calls. The assistant animal control officer is a certified veterinary technician with 9 years in the field, so we are equipped to handle many different emergency situations pertaining to many varieties of animals. We have been fortunate to be included in rehabilitating many fawns, baby raccoons, squirrels, rabbits, and puppies and kittens.
