Step 3: We will schedule a meet and greet with your family, both human and animal, with  the dog you are interested in adopting.Please keep in mind, it may take several visits for the dog to feel comfortable with you.
Step 4: If all goes well, we will make the arrangements for you to welcome your new dog into your home! 

Following adoption: 
CT Animal House will be available to guide you through the transition with your new friend. We want to make sure that your experience in adopting a Shelter Dog is a good one! 

CT Animal House asks for a tax deductible donation of $300 per dog.  Dogs are spayed/neutered ,vaccinated, and microchipped.

Help Wanted

CT Animal House is a volunteer, foster based rescue. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization. We do not have a facility therefore we rely solely on fosters and volunteers to operate.


Without fosters, we wouldn't have a place for the dogs in need to go. Fostering saves lives and all you have to do is open up your home and heart to a dog in need, we take care of the rest.

Looking to fill immediate volunteer positions in administrative, adoption support, fundraising, marketing. All are welcome!

Poor Faith wandered through an open door into a kind and warm home on Christmas Eve. She was cold and hungry, and very weary New Britain Animal Control was contacted and promptly took her to the Emergency Vet. Poor Faith was weak from severe malnutrition and dehydration. She had nothing in her stomach but some garbage. Clearly she has had several litters of pups. She is covered in sores and has a broken tail. Her cleft palate is most likely caused by poor breeding. What kind of monster could discard such a sweet dog like Faith? This girl is nothing but a sweetheart. CT Animal House was so happy to give Faith her freedom ride to her wonderful foster Sue. Sue is a senior Vet tech and will care for Faith through the surgery needed to repair her cleft palate. 

Faith would like to ask you all for your help. This sweet girl needs cleft palette and lip surgery. The opening in her palette makes her susceptible to aspirating her food, which can lead to pneumonia. She will also need some of her toofers removed and soft tissue repair of her lip to hold in her water when she drinks while we think she is absolutely beautiful just the way she is, we want her to be healthy. If you would like to donate towards her surgery , please click on the donate button below. Faith thanks you!
