Shelter Hours
Our current facility was built in 1939 and for many years was the Fairfield County Dog Shelter, of which we are not affiliated. It has 17 permanent dog kennels and 24 cat kennels. There is a small quarantine room as well, in addition to a small office space. Please stop by! It's best to visit a pet in person before adopting, and we also need volunteers regularly.
