Casper is a sweet, loveable dog who was dumped near the State Police Barracks off the highway. We believe he may be hearing impaired,so we have begun to teach him hand signals. He loves playing outside and gets along fine with other dogs and cats. He would do well with children over 12 who are energetic enough to run and play with him. He walks nicely on a leash and knows how to sit and lay down. He loves being with people, and would make a great family pet. To meet this sweet boy, please contact Southbury Animal control
The Southbury Animal Control enforces all State laws and Town ordinances relating to animals. We handle calls regarding roaming dog(s), nuisance barking, animal bites/attacks, unreasonable tethering or confining of a dog, validation of current rabies vaccination, licensing laws, leash law ordinance compliance, and conducts routine patrols. Dogs found roaming or lost are brought to the Southbury Pound located in the Town Highway parking lot on Peter Road in the back left corner.
Verbal warnings, written warnings or infractions may be issued pursuant to Chapter 435 of the Connecticut General Statutes.
Southbury Animal Control also handles emergency calls such as reports of animal cruelty, injured dog or cat, and situations involving possible rabid animal exposure to humans or domestic animals. After 4:30 p.m. an animal bite/attack is also considered an emergency.
We also handle orphan animals and orphan wildlife calls. The assistant animal control officer is a certified veterinary technician with 9 years in the field, so we are equipped to handle many different emergency situations pertaining to many varieties of animals. We have been fortunate to be included in rehabilitating many fawns, baby raccoons, squirrels, rabbits, and puppies and kittens.
Our dog pound is located at Peter Road in Southbury, and our office is in the town hall on Main Street South.
Adoption hours are available Monday through Sunday from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm by appointment only.
For anyone in CT, it is a $5 fee if the dog is spayed/neutered. If the animal is intact, it is a $50 fee. Included in the $50 fee is a voucher that will cover the spay/neuter and 2 vaccines free of charge. Anyone out of state, it is a flat $5 fee, and you are not eligable for a voucher. For the adoption process, we ask for a veterinary reference, and then ask some specific questions to determine whether or not the pet in question would be a match for you. We then do a "meet and greet" with you and the pet to see how you get along.
Southbury Animal Control is open to adopt animals out to individuals from any state. We serve specifically the town of Southbury as far as rescuing animals and enforcing laws as they pertain to animals. We mainly adopt out dogs, and on occassion we have cats that we have aquired either because they were abandoned or signed over due to illness.
