Adoptions from the Animal Shelter are funded by the State of Connecticut's Department of Agriculture Animal Population Control Program. Our Regional Shelter (Clinton, Westbrook & Madison) is located at 117 Nod Road, Clinton, CT 06413 which is where you would adopt a pet. Please contact the Animal Control Officer if you are interested in adopting a pet.

Dogs already spayed or neutered have an adoption fee of $5 and the new pet owner is responsible for all vet care expenses.

After a pet is selected, an eligible owner will complete a vaccination/sterilization voucher (APCP-03) and must pay a $50 fee ($45 program/$5 municipal). The voucher benefits are as follows:
  • $50 for a male cat
  • $70 for a female cat
  • $100 for a male dog
  • $120 for a female dog
In addition, the program will provide for two presurgical vaccinations coincident with the sterilization. Only the adopted pet and Connecticut resident listed on the voucher are eligible for benefits. Vouchers cannot be transferred. Veterinary practices participating in the program will be listed at the shelter. The voucher must be used within 60 days of the adoption date to receive benefits. The adoption voucher is available for only dogs that are not currently spayed or neutered.
