Welcome to Danbury Animal Welfare Society

NOTICE: Open House Adoption Hours will be closed on Wednesday, July 1st.  Please visit our adoptable dogs and cats when we re-open Thursday, July 2nd at 6 PM.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

For over 40 years, Danbury Animal Welfare Society (DAWS) has been dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our community and beyond. Since 1974 DAWS has been promoting responsible pet guardianship and the humane treatment of animals, while working toward ending animal overpopulation through education and a variety of programs.

You can be a part of the DAWS family and help us live our mission for many more years to come:

  • Adopt – meet our dogs and cats for adoption.
  • Donate – your generous donations helps us help animals in need.
  • Foster – become a foster parent to kittens and puppies and help them find forever homes.
  • Volunteer – learn how you can help animals in need by becoming a volunteer.
