Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

This group is not directly affiliated with the Waterbury Dog Pound, meaning that we do not work there, but we do have information about the dogs and can assist with as many inquiries as possible on them. We aim to assist the Pound, although they do NOT allow a volunteer program, in as many ways as possible. During warmer months we collect food, toys and other needs for the impounded dogs and the adopted dogs. We seek rescue assistance for those dogs at the Pound that are in need of rescue. This rescue group is in the process of applying for all federal and state licenses to fully operate as a certified rescue. We also advocate for the well being of the dogs and their living conditions and strive to better improve the long standing customer service issues at the Waterbury Dog Pound. Through constant media promotion and proper assessments of the dogs, we hope to save as many lives as possible in our day to day mission.

About Our Rescue Group:

This group is devoted rescue group that is exclusively focused on the dogs located at the Waterbury Dog Pound. Our volunteers are from the Waterbury CT area and we are very active in networking the dogs on Facebook and trying to find them homes. We are a new rescue in 2014, pulling exclusively from the Waterbury Dog Pound. We have filed our articles, through our attorney, for the State of Connecticut. When the articles are approved, we will then apply for our 501(c)3 status with the Internal Revenue Service. Donations are used for pull fees at the Waterbury Dog Pound and also for vetting. Donation ARE NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE until 501(c)3 status is approved (hopefully by the end of 2014). Donations can also be made directly to Prospect Vet.

Our Adoption Process:

When a potential adopter is interested in adopting a dog from BCRA, they must fill out an interest form and will need to provide a Vet reference, 2 personal references (non-family) and will be visited for a home check. If everything checks out and the adopter is approved for adoption, the fee will range from $150-$250 depending on the expenses that BCRA paid out to fully vet and neuter the dog.

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.
