My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Shana was found as a stray. She is a 4 year old cat, She is quite shy, as she has not had much socialization being out on her own. However, she is settling in and is slowly acclimating. Shana enjoys the company of another cat and would do best in a home where she can have a sibling to help show her that the world does not have to be so scary.

For more information on Shana, call AWS at 860-354-1350 email or visit our website

More about this 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.
