We are starting to accept out of state adoption applications, but it may take a bit longer than normal to coordinate the process.
Thank you for your understanding.
We have plenty of hounds looking for their happy homes. Please feel free to check them out! At this moment, we can ONLY accept applications from Connecticut residents. We will provide an update when this changes.
Sammy recently joined WAG and is recovering nicely from a broken leg.
We have plenty of opportunities coming up for you to meet our adoptable dogs! Come out and say hello! We’d love to help answer any questions you may have and spread the word about what makes these dogs so greyt! Feel free to check out our Events calendar as well!
