About Our Rescue Group:Hamden Happy Tails Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose primary mission is to provide assistance to Hamden's homeless and abandoned animals. With the help of volunteers and Hamden Animal Control Officers, Chris Smith and Steve Gimler, Hamden Happy Tails Foundation promotes the adoption of Hamden's homeless pets .
Come Meet our Pets:Presently we do not have a shelter. Hamden is currently in the planning process. We hope to have a shelter to call our own in the near future. Until that time, our dogs and cats are housed primarily in the North Haven Animal Control shelter or in the animal shelters of neighboring municipalities. If you see a dog or cat you would like to meet, please call Officers Smith or Gimler at 203-230-4080 to schedule an appointment.
Our Adoption Process:Our goal is to ensure forever homes for the dogs and cats in our care by making the best match possible. Adoption is contingent upon completion and approval of an adoption application which can be obtained from Hamden's Animal Control Officers.
Unspayed or unneutered cats and dogs are adopted out under the State of Connecticut Animal Population Control Program ("APCP"). Connecticut residents must pay a $50.00 fee ($45.00 goes to APCP, $5.00 to the municipality) at the time of adoption, which entitles the adopter to a vaccination/sterilization voucher valid for sixty days. The voucher provides a one-time sterilization fee plus two pre-surgical vaccinations coincident with sterilization. For more information about APCP, please contact Hamden Animal Control at 203-230-4080.
