Bailey is a 3 year old Momma whoâs babies were all adopted, and now itâs her turn to find a forever home! This cutie loves to relax as sheâs half way out of her bed :) And she loves to play! Feathers, toy mice, stings and more. Come and meet this playful girl today!
Two dogs are better than one! Banks and Brock are brothers getting used to life here in Connecticut and are looking for an experienced adult-only home. They are shy at first, but with patience and training, these boys would make great additions to the family.
Big Boy is a big love! This wonderfully sweet and handsome eight year old cat came to us through owner surrender. Big Boy lived outside for a while but now enjoys resting in the warmth of a cozy bed. That's a good thing because his former outdoor lifestyle resulted in him contracting FIV. But don't worry! Big Boy's health is improving as is evident through his playful manner and affectionate temperament. If your heart is as BIG as Big Boy's we think you'll be a great match!

Brando is approximately 3 years old and was a stray that was dropped off at DAWS. He is just settling in to his new environment, so he might be a little hesitant at first. But he loves being loved up once you start petting him. He'd love you to take him home and make him part of the family!
Buddy is a wonderful six year old hound mix looking for a loving home. He was adopted from DAWS as a puppy and now returned due to a baby in the house. He has lived with other dogs but not a fan of cats. Buddy is very sweet and loves to play. He would be great in a home with children eight and up.
Love a man with scruff? Cage is your perfect ten! He may be small in size but he's certainly not a little lap dog. He can run and play all day long! This scruffy man would be great in a home who can keep up with his terrier energy. Could he be...the one?
All hail Cesar! Cesar is a handsome mastiff mix looking for a family willing to work on his confidence. His true personality shines when he has a playmate in the yard to romp around with. He's a sweet dog who loves to run around and act like the big silly puppy he is. He'd love a family with another dog who could help show him the ropes.
City Kitty is a friendly, fancy girl who loves to be pet! Unfortunately her owner passed away, so she is here to find a loving forever home. She has a very pretty collar that her owner had bought for her and a cute little white spot on her chest. She is very sweet and would be a wonderful addition to any family!
Meet Cova! This little bundle of joy is 7 months old and is as sweet as can be. She is here at DAWS with her mom, Phaedra, who looks after her because Cova has some sight and balance issues... so they need to be adopted together. But Cova doesn't know anything is wrong with her and loves to play and climb! As long as she is with a family who understands her special needs, Cova, and mama Phaedra, will be a wonderful addition to your home!
Daffodil is still waiting for someone to give her a chance! She has been waiting for that special home for way too long. Daffodil is very sweet, but quite shy with people. She loves other dogs and so we are looking for a home where she can have a doggie buddy to play and hang out with. She has gone on many sleepovers to a volunteer's house and has done great! Are you the one to give Daffodil a chance at a forever home? If interested in meeting Daffodil, please email email@example.com and an appointment will be arranged.

We recommend an active home with teens and up.
This adorable girl is Fiji. She is 2 years old and is a little shy as she is getting used to the shelter surroundings. The staff and volunteers are working with her and she is a sweet girl :) She just needs a patient family who will let her come out of her shell at her own pace. We've noticed that she enjoys the company of other cats and is more engaged when she has someone to play with!
Flap Jack and her brother Home Fry are currently a shy, very bonded pair who were recently rescued. They need to go home together where weâre sure they will blossom and become wonderful additions to your family.
Meet Grayson, a one year old, 38 lb gorgeous fella. Our best breed guess is Golden retriever mix. He is very sweet and social and loves people! He knows sit and is ready to learn more. He is very gentle and would be fine in a home with kids. Grayson is a young dog so an active home would be best for him. He needs a cat-free home.
Hank is a sweet 10 year old beagle who needs a loving home. He likes other low-key dogs but is not fond of cats. He is fully housebroken and goes to the door when he needs to be let out. He would do best in a home with adults, where someone is home through the day. Hank is currently in a foster home, not at the shelter. If you think Hank is the one for you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can schedule a meeting at the shelter. Kindly sponsored by Agnes Dorsey at the gold level

Honey is a cute, young, active and outgoing girl. She loves to sit for treats and takes them gently once seated. She would probably love to learn to play fetch using a few tennis balls. With the proper training in place, she will make a great dog for an adult family without kids.

Who needs coffee when you have India in your life? This girl is a bundle of energy who's sure to give you the jolt you need! India is a bouncy, larger-than-life pup who lights up the room. We'd argue her full body wiggles are the cutest, but come see for yourself! She'd be a great addition to a home with older kids and maybe even an active dog like her.
Jake is an adorable 2 year old, 10 lb maltese mix. This handsome little guy had a really rough start to his life and was very scared when he first came to DAWS. He has had his makeover from shaggy dog to movie star. He feels so much better and more confident that we think he is ready to go to his forever home. He has really come out of his shell and loves to be petted and carried around by people he knows. He will even dance on his hind legs for a treat. Jake needs an adult-only home. If you think you might be the right match for Jake, please email email@example.com and an appointment will be arranged for you to meet him.

He may be nothin' but a hound dog, but there's no cryin' all the time! Calling all big hound lovers! Jeffery is a social hound mix who's very easy-going! This smarty already knows how to 'sit' and give his 'paw.'

He may be nothin' but a hound dog, but he is a friend of ours (and can be yours too!).

Add a little Magic to your life! This sweet boy is 3 years old. He is very shy right now and is getting used to his new surroundings, but he is very gentle and will need the love of a patient adopter. We know he will blossom in a wonderful home! He's FIV+ so you'll need to keep him inside, and as long as you feed him well and keep his check-ups up to date, he can live as long as a non-FIV+ cat. Kindly sponsored by Gregory Guion

You'll Fall for this Pumpkin well before Halloween! This 9 year old furry guy is gourd-geous! He wants pets so bad that he purrs, licks and little nibbles. What a love! Any doubts that you may have about his sweet personality not being a good fit for your family will be squash-ed after you meet him! No trick, he's a treat!

This sweet face belongs to Sarah! She is a little lovebug who is a year old and she loves to give kisses :) She likes to have all of the attention to herself, so she would need to be the only kitty in the home.

What's the best part of having short stubby legs? Being closer to the chicken the humans dropped on the floor while cooking dinner! Scooter is a Corgi mix who may be "vertically challenged" but he makes up for it in personality. He loves sprinting around the yard with his canine friends but also loves to melt into his humans if they are providing pets (especially belly rubs). It may take him a bit to warm up, but it's surely worth the wait.
Storm is a 5 month kitten who came to us as a stray with his buddy Lightning and this bonded pair make quite the dynamic duo! Storm is larger than Lightning and a bit more outgoing, but both are very sweet. They are still a bit scared from being outside on their own at such a young age, but are coming around quickly. Come visit Storm and Lightning today!
Looking for a pocket-sized pal? Meet Sunny, chihuahua mix, who would love to hang out in your lap and cuddle as much as possible.
