Independent, nonprofit,

non-destroy

 

The Animal Welfare Society Shelter is an independent, nonprofit, non-destroy animal rescue organization whose mission is to offer refuge to homeless and abandoned dogs and cats and place them in responsible, loving homes. Located in New Milford, we have served homeless and abandoned animals from the towns of Bridgewater, Brookfield, Roxbury and Washington, Connecticut since 1965. When space permits, we sometimes rescue dogs from "high kill" shelters outside our area.

 

Each year hundreds of animals are rescued by AWS. Some are surrendered to us because their owners have become ill, died or are in a family crisis. Others are found as strays or have been abandoned. Many of our dogs come from the regional animal control facility in New Milford after a state mandated seven day waiting period to allow their owners to claim them.
