A 236 Evergreen Street, Bridgeport, CT 06606 shelter helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.
This shelter hasn't posted any pets that match these criteria.
A/ CHIEF ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER:
For those that do not know....and we have the answers!!
Did we move?
Yes! We did move to 236 Evergreen St. since June of this year. We no longer do business at 525 Asylum St. (So stop dropping off animals there!!)
Are we a "NO KILL SHELTER?"
No! we are a municipality so we feel that if there are animal owners that no longer can take care of their animals we would rather take them as owner releases, than put owners in a very tough situation where they are unsure what to do with their animal. We strongly feel that not taking in unwanted pets promotes abandonement. Since we have been located at this address we have not yet had to euthanize animals for space!
How many animal can we hold?
We can hold 80 dogs and 25 cats. We are the biggest "municipal" shelter in the state.
About how many animals do we take in?
Incredibly last year we almost took in 2000 animals for the 2007-2008 fiscal year.
Do we take in volunteers?
We currently do not. We are trying to get enough city employees on staff before we plan on getting volunteers.
Could we come to your school and speak to students?
OH Yeah! We love kids and we love coming out and speaking about the responsibilities of owning a pet and we also talk about the importance of dog and cat safety.
(We have actually gone out and spoken to seniors to.)
Do we take donations?
YES! Please click above on "DONATIONS"
How come when I call I don't get a person but an answering machine.
We strongly believe that citizens that take the time to come in take priority to those that call in and there is only "1" person at the other end of that phone and by now you should understand that we are the busiest shelter in the state. So our shelter continuosly has visitors from 10am to 3:30pm. On an average day we can have anywhere from 20 to 100 visitors. (On saturdays those numbers double) But if you decide to call please leave a message we do try to listen to all messages. Please listen to the answering machine. Almost 90% of the questions asked by phone are answered on our message and please DO NOT CALL US WITH EMERGENCIES!! CALL 576-7671!!!
Do we adopt many animals?
Thankfully YES! On average we adopt out anywhere from 1 to 15 animals in a day but sadly we take in 1 to 15 animals in a day!!
Do we only have Pitbulls?
We have many of them but we also do get in many purebreds that will sit here for weeks because people assume all we have is pits. Please note*** Before you write off all pits as bad dogs come in and let us convince you that they are not.
