Animal Friends of Connecticut, Inc. is a nonprofit, no-kill shelter dedicated to the protection of animals. It is an all volunteer organization, based in West Hartford and New Britain that rescues stray, abandoned, abused and handicapped dogs and cats. Animals are also rescued from local dog pounds when their owners cannot be located. The animals are given needed medical care, all vaccinations and spayed or neutered, then cared for at our shelter until an appropriate placement can be found for them.
