Thank you for your interest in adopting an animal rescued by PAWS! We wants to make certain that every animal adopted goes to a loving home where it will be well cared for. Because of this, our application asks a number of detailed questions which are necessary for our screening process. All information will be kept confidential.
Use our Adoption Process page for a checklist of steps and more information about pet adoption.
PAWS has one location in Norwalk, Connecticut and prospective adopters must live within a reasonable driving distance of the shelter.

This digital form will save you time when you come to the shelter. Any missing answers will be required when you visit the shelter to complete your application.
If you have other pets, please bring a copy of your Vet records so that we may verify that they are spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations. This is necessary prior to adopting a pet from PAWS, and there can be delays if records aren't available and we need to try to contact your Vet.
If you have any questions, please call us at (203) 750-9572 or use our contact form.
Please allow 2-3 business days for processing your application. Please let your references know to expect a call from us. Thank you!
