Mission: The connecticut humane society is the leading resource in the state for companion animal welfare; enriching the lives of families and communities through adoption services, medical care, education, and prevention of cruelty.
Programs: Animal rescue, protection, and adoption - the connecticut humane society operates three animal care and adoption centers and a full service donor subsidized veterinary clinic. Companion animals are surrendered for adoption by owners, taken in from law enforcement and rescued from partner animal sheltering organizations. Rehoming activities and veterinary care to underserved pet owners help to prevent animal suffering, reduce euthanasia, and other forms of animal cruelty and neglect. Pets receive food, shelter, medical care and emotional support from professional staff and more than 380 volunteers. Through educational efforts with our nearly 17,000 pet owning clients as well as our legislative efforts to enact stronger anti-cruelty laws, we strive to reduce and prevent harm to companion animals in connecticut.
fox memorial clinic - the animal clinic program provides subsidized veterinary services to animals whose owners can not afford care for their animals. During 2014, the program provided more than 17,682 services to animals inlcuding 1,436 spay-neuters.
humane education - the humane education program hosts training workshops for municipal animal control officers and other shelter/rescue groups, conducts facility tours to community groups where they learn about shelter operations and runs dog obedience classes for pet owners.
