Showing Care & Compassion Since 1972

Update from VSAWL

We are currently only open FOR APPOINTMENTS.  Proper PPE is required on shelter grounds, it is not always possible to keep a social distance so people will not be allowed without it.  If you show up as a drop in, we may not be able to accommodate you. Please schedule your time!  We are still accepting adoption, foster and volunteer applications online.   If you have any questions or concerns you can call the shelter at 860-399-7561 or email us at (email is better!).  We will get back to you as soon as we can.  Thank you for your patience during this time and please stay safe!
