ANIMAL WELFARE SOCIETY, Inc. (860) 354-1350
An independent, non-profit, non-destroy organization founded in 1965.
Our Mission is to aid and find loving, permanent homes for abandoned, stray, and abused cats and dogs in New Milford, Bridgewater, Brookfield, Roxbury, and Washington, Connecticut.
Each year hundreds of dogs and cats find refuge at our shelter located at 8 Dodd Road in New Milford, Connecticut. Abandoned dogs are rescued from the Regional Canine Facility in New Milford after the mandatory 7-day waiting period. Our cats are found abandoned in the area we serve.
From the moment these animals enter the shelter, they are no longer unwanted. Each is a special pet waiting for a caring, responsible, permanent home.
All our residents are provided with the best veterinary care possible in a shelter setting.
Routine care includes:
- Standard distemper combinations
- Rabies innoculations for both dogs and cats
- Preventative worming and treatment for other parasites
- Feline leukemia testing for cats
- Heartworm testing and treatment for dogs
- All dogs are Microchipped
All the animals at AWS have been spayed/neutered and vaccinated-- they just need to be adopted into loving homes.
