The staff at New Fairfield/Sherman Animal Welfare Society is 100% dedicated to the animals in their care. I always know my donations will be put to good use. Over the years I have donated blankets and towels but recently they've begun taking print cartridges through Staples. What a great idea! This way people who don't live near by but still want to support them may do so easily. I will continue to send my cartridges to Staples in their name for as long as they keep up the great work they do!

I have been a board member for about four years now. All of our board members care very deeply about our animals and care very deeply about our shelter. We have an excellent staff at the Shelter who like us are animal lovers. We take PRIDE in our sheter. Our volunteers are excellent and very giving people.

This organization has volunteers who are very dedicated to helping the animals in need in their area, and these people also are very fun and welcoming to newcomers. I participated in a fund raiser last spring, just as I was visiting a relative who is involved with the organization. I was welcomed and had a fun time, all the while knowing it was for a good cause.

I volunteered here when I was in my senior year of high shool with my friend Kellie. We chose NFSAW for our SEE project so we could help animals and raise money for the ones in the shelter. The staff was amazing on helping us with our project, and let us come anytime to fulfill our community service hours. They also introduced us to all the animals and let us play with them. We enjoyed seeing the animals, and doing our bake sale that raised over $200 dollars for the shelter. Wish college wasn't so crazy or we would come and vist again.

Helping my community. It was great to see all those who helped in our bake sale. We didn't put any prices on our goods, all you had to do was donate. Most people gave 10-20 dollars. It was a great thing to witness.

I wouldn't. They update their facebook page, and website daily.

I am very appreciative of all that the NFSAW does for the needy animals and our community. Not only do they help with the welfare of uncared for or lost animals, but they also contribute to their community through other recycling activities for cell phones and computers. You can find the donation boxes at various places around town in New Fairfield and Sherman. I am very thankful to the NFSAW, as I know that the volunteers work very hard, dedicating their own personal time for an important cause. It takes a lot of work to organize and manage the various fundraising and community events required to help the NFAW shelter survive, such as the Holiday Boutique at the Senior Center and the wine tasting event held in Sherman.

After being involved for many years, volunteering as a crafter.
I was asked to be on the Board for NFSAW. What a honor!
I knew making the crafts for the "Christmas Boutique" gave me joy.......but most of my joy came from being able to raise lots of money for these precious animals.


I totally enjoy what I do for the NFSAW.
The people I have met along the way.... I now consider as FRIENDS.

My family has adopted three cats from NFSAW. The shelter itself is one of the nicest facilities I have ever seen and the staff is wonderful. I was a little afraid to visit the first time, as I was concerned the cats would be sad and in cages. Instead, we found a beautiful, light filled room with cats running freely all over. Much better than living in a stone wall in the cold. Thanks to all the volunteers that take such good care of the cats and dogs lucky enough to end up there.

We have ferral cats living in the woods behind our house. NFSAW helped our neighbor to trap and spay/neuter many of the cats we now feed.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add a TV or radio that would play all day to acclimate the cats to the noise of a house. Our house is fairly quiet, but the cats were a little nervous for a few days.

NFSAW is a top notch facility staffed by people devoted to providing the highest quality care for the animals in their charge. They truly have the animals' best interests at heart, which has been evident with every interaction I have had with them over the years, including as a visitor, adoptor and donor. NSAW is truly a benefit to the community and the unfortunate animals lucky enough to find their way here, making NFSAW very deserving of your support. We are fortunate indeed to have NFSAW in our town.
