Important Note

Bruce is best friends with Corky. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Bruce is a gentle giant! His size may be a tad intimidating, but you won't find a sweeter boy! Him and his brother, Corky were signed over to us. Their owner passed away and this dynamic pair fell into our lap! These boys are about eight years old, but definitely full of live! They enjoy going out and playing together, sharing a bed whenever they get the chance, and they love snuggle time! Although they adore each other, a home without other dogs and small children would suit them best!

For more information on Bruce, call AWS at 860-354-1350 email animalwelfare.socty@snet.net or visit us during adoption hours (Tuesday from 11a.m until 7 p.m and Wednesday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) Adoption fee for Senior dogs is $150.

About Animal Welfare Society, Inc.

About Our Shelter...

Animal Welfare Society, Inc. is an independent, non-profit, non-destroy organization founded in 1965.

Our Mission is to aid and find loving, permanent homes for abandoned, stray, and abused cats and dogs in New Milford, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Roxbury, and Washington, Connecticut.

Each year hundreds of dogs and cats find refuge at our shelter located at 8 Dodd Road in New Milford, Connecticut. Abandoned dogs are rescued from the Regional Canine Facility in New Milford after the mandatory 7-day waiting period. AWS also makes periodic trips to New York City's overpopulated dog pounds and brings their animals to our shelter for placement. Our cats are found abandoned in the areas we serve.

From the moment these animals enter the shelter, they are no longer unwanted. Each is a special pet waiting for a caring, responsible, permanent home.

Come Meet Our Pets...

You can view our animals on our website or come in and visit them at our shelter.


AWS Adoption Hours:

Tuesday - 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
