While our hearts are heavy, we will never regret letting him live his final months outside of a shelter. We tried to get Finn’s Cancer into remission, but sadly it was not to be. While his time with us was short, he was happy, and enjoyed these months hanging out in the sunshine with his dog and horse friends. Special thanks to his hospice fosters Kaley and Jake,for opening their home to Finn, taking him to his chemo and vet appts, countless baths, and to Jake for letting him hang out as his shop dog A special thank you to Handsome Dan and Animal Talk for promoting Finn for CTAH and to all of the many donors that gave Finn such a beautiful gift. I know he would give you all a big slurpy kiss of thanks

RIP big guy. We miss you.

Applying for adoption

Step 1: Please fill out our adoption application below.
Step 2: Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted by one of our adoption coordinators.
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. Per our adoption agreement, pups under the age of 6 months will receive a scheduled spay/neuter appointment at the Vet of our choice  to be used when the pup turns 6 months old. 

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!
