Sonny's Story...
Sonny will be coming to our adoption event May 20th & 21st at the Durham Fairgrounds. If you are interested in applying for Sonny, please click the link in the side bar to take you to our site. All application information is available along with all the other dogs coming to our event.

A little information about Sonny...

My name is Sonny and my foster mom (FM) says I'm a big handsome yellow lab mix boy who has all of the typical lab characteristics … loving, loyal, super sweet, and who LOVES to cause and retrieve a ball for you. I am about 2 years old and weight 68 lbs. While I am a big boy, I am pretty good on a leash and I mind real well. I haven't had any accidents overnight in my kennel and have been crated as well with no issues. I can sit for my food or treats as I love to eat. I adore getting belly rubs and did I tell you that I LOVE to chase a ball and will bring it back to you and sometimes even put it in your hands if you will throw it for me again? While I won't back down to another dog, I have gotten along with most of the other dogs here although I seem to like the ladies better. I haven't had any problem with those things called cats as they really don't interest me and while I will bark on occasion, I am overall a quiet guy. If you are looking for a well-rounded handsome dude, I could be your guy … please come meet me! No small children, teens would be best.

Sonny will be coming to our next event at:

Shelter Adoption Event
Durham Fairgrounds
Town House Road
Durham, CT

Event information....

We are open to the public from 11;30 am to 4 pm Saturday the 20th and 10:00 am - 4pm on Sunday. Applicants who apply online by the Thursday Prior to the Event will be allowed early entrance at 10am on Saturday. All final decisions are made by the rescues not Homeward Bound volunteers. If you are interested in this dog or any of our dogs please go to (copy and paste in browser window) and see all of the dogs coming and also fill out an application. Please note that most of these dogs are not in Connecticut and will be arriving the day prior so it is most likely not possible for you to meet them prior to the event.

If you are a first time dog owner we may require a home visit prior to adoption.

If you rent or live in a condo we will require proof that you are able to have a dog. This could be a copy of the lease or condo agreement.

All the residents in the household MUST come to the event along with any dog in your home for a meet and greet with our trainers.

Per the request of the rescues we may limit adoptions to only Connecticut homes due to the distance and support we give them. This again is strictly the rescues decision and hope you will honor that.

We also require a follow up visit with all families within a couple of months after the adoption.

Since we know there are many questions, please realize we will answer questions of those who have filled out an application first.

Adoption Fee is no more than $385. All dogs will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated to age and also microchipped.

If you have additional questions about our dogs feel free to contact us. Please understand that we are all volunteers and will try to get back to you as soon as possible. If it is close to our event we are very busy with pre-screening our applicants so please understand if we can't answer all your questions in a timely manner. Our goal is to make sure these dogs go to the best home possible.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sonny, a Chester Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Chester, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Chester.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chester already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Chester breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chester paves the way for another one to be saved.
