Featured Adoption

Hi my name is Henry

He is a handsome 5 year old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix with the most beautiful, shiny black fur. He takes a short while to warm up to new people, but once he does, he is all about soliciting your attention and belly rubs. Henri is a great blend of energy... See more available dogs.

Spay Connecticut is a program of Protectors of Animals, Inc. The purpose of this program is to end the suffering of innocent dogs and cats by reducing the number of unwanted births in the state of Connecticut by advocating for spaying and neutering of companion animals and feral cats. We do this by acting as a resource for low-cost spay/neuter information.
