Facts about Oliver

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Oliver is a big boy who was signed over to us because . He is a very playful guy who is such a character! He has the run of the shelter and likes roaming around the hallway. He likes to help out behind the desk, knocking the pens over, or sitting on papers. He also loves getting his fresh air on our enclosed cat porch. If you can't find him, that's probably where he'll be! Oliver would like a home where he can roam around the house, lounge in the sun, and get lots of playtime!

Oliver is one of our featured cats at New Milford Petco:

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.
