Adoptable Dogs and Puppies

Submit an ADOPTION APPLICATION online to get pre-approved. Once approved we'll be in touch to schedule an appointment. Please Note:  We are currently only accepting dog specific applications.  General applications will not be processed. 

Only longer stay animals are eligible for out of state adoption.  Please read the individual posting.  In the case of multiple applications for the same dog, preference will be given to adopters who live in Fairfield County.   We are not currently adopting to Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine or Rhode Island due to burdensome interstate transport regulations. 


Donations for dogs includes them being spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccines, 4DX tested, and microchipped. Adult dogs are $375 and puppies are $450.  Click on a photo below and be sure to Scroll Down to Read "My Story".

PAWS has been helping animals in need since 1962. Our dedicated staff and volunteers provide shelter, medical attention, and love to the dogs and cats in our care. We work hard to find the right pet for your home and the right home for every pet. Challenge accepted! We rescued and placed for more than 900 cats and dogs last year!
