We invite you to join us each month to tour our Program Center, visit with adoptable pets and learn more about our unique adoption process. You are welcome to submit your Adoption Application, but pets are not adopted out during the Meet and Greet.

Clear the Shelters is a country-wide event focused on finding homeless pets their forever families. This event is sponsored by NBC Connecticut and many locations will be televised throughout the day.

Though we do NOT do same-day adoptions, we are so excited to be part of this amazing day and hope that you’ll come by to meet adoptable pets, chat with knowledgeable staff and volunteers, and see our Sanctuary! Read our pet adoption policies here.

Please note that we will be participating at two different locations – our Manchester location will be open from 10 AM – Noon (34 Sanrico Drive, Manchester, CT) and our Ashford Sanctuary will be open from 1 PM – 3 PM (46 Floeting Road, Ashford, CT). Feel free to stop by both locations, as there will be different pets at each place!
