My story

Mike is a sweet mix from Puerto Rico. He is estimated to be about 4 years old and 30 pounds. He gets along well with other dogs especially his brother Michael. But Mike will need a cat free home as he will chase them. Michael is the more outgoing of the 2 but both will need some socialization and obedience training.



They can be adopted together or separately.



For more information on Mike & Micheal, call AWS at 860-354-1350 email animalwelfare.socty@snet.net or visit our website aws-shelter.org for a pre adopt application

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.
