Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve the Town of East Hartford as Municipal Animal Control officers. We personally care for our dogs on a day to day basis as part of a regional effort with the towns of South Windsor and Manchester. Each town is responsible for the adoptions of their own animals. Our ultimate goal is Public safety and education about the animals in our town and to try and find a loving home for every animal that comes through our doors.

Our Adoption Process:

We ask that you come to our shelter to have an initial meeting and to fill out our adoption application. If everything goes well we usually like a second meeting involving the people who live in your home and any animals in the home as well. We take part in the APCP voucher program. It is a $50 fee for adoption and in return you get the voucher for discounted services on spaying/neutering and vaccines. These are only avaiable to residents of the state of Connecticut.

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.
