Valley Shore Animal Welfare League
Valley Shore Animal Welfare League (also known as 'VSAWL') was founded in 1972 by a group of women that saw an increasing need for animal-oriented programs along the shoreline of Connecticut. The League now owns and operates a no-kill shelter that serves as an adoption facility for dogs and cats.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization operated by a Board of Directors. A caring, dedicated staff and number of volunteers handle the daily operations of the shelter.
At the shelter we welcome and encourage visitors and group tours. We are always happy to educate and share what we do with our shoreline community.
