"The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing." Albert Einstein

Animal Friends of Connecticut, Inc. is a nonprofit, no-kill shelter dedicated to the protection of animals. It is an all volunteer organization, based in West Hartford and New Britain that rescues stray, abandoned, abused and handicapped dogs and cats. Animals are also rescued from local dog pounds when their owners cannot be located. The animals are given needed medical care, all vaccinations and spayed or neutered, then cared for at our shelter until an appropriate placement can be found for them.

Great attention is given to the placement of each animal. Adoptions are only done, after Animal Friends is sure the placement is with a responsible, caring person. This is accomplished by interviewing the applicant and possibly a visitation to the home where the animal will be living. A donation is requested when an animal is adopted as donations are the only source of funds the organization has and are needed to continue its work. If an adoptive owner is unhappy with his choice, the animal can be returned to Animal Friends during the first year and it will be provided for until a more compatible home can be found.
