Founded in 1881, our primary focus is to animals and over the years we have added and expanded animal shelters, built a staff of caring professionals, recruited a corps of dedicated volunteers, initiated humane education programs, entered into the public affairs arena, and defined our relationship of people and pets in the environment. Recent expansion was the extensive renovation of our Westport shelter, completed in June 2004, which triples our capacity for housing pets and includes a state-of-the art medical facility to provide them with the best veterinary care. Also, the Fox Memorial Clinic, adjacent to the Newington shelter, has been open to the public since April 1999. The pet wellness center offers basic wellness care, catastrophic care, spay/neuter services and vaccinations for pet owners who cannot otherwise afford veterinary treatment.
