Stonington Animal Care & Control

Our Adoptable Pet List


We are currently looking for donations of cat litter and cat carries. WE MOST DESPERATELY NEED donations of Capstar and Advantage flea removal products. Cats and large breed dog sizes are most needed.

Impounded Animals

Who We Are

We are a division of the Stonington Police Department. A municipal organization dedicated to enforcing the Animal Control Laws of the Town of Stonington and the State of Connecticut. We do not accept unwanted animals or stray and feral cats. We make every attempt to find homes for the animals that are impounded, however we do not claim to be a no kill shelter. Please help us find these animals a home before their time is up!

Adopting a friend

The adoption fee for CT residents that adopt a pet will be $50.00 under the State Animal Population Program. This will include a certificate for a discount on the spay/neuter and for two shots. If a veterinarian finds that the animal has already been spayed or neutered, adoptees may apply to the State of CT, Dept. of Agriculture, for a $45.00 reimbursement. We accept adoptees outside of CT but they do not qualify for the State Animal Population Program. Adoptees outside of CT pay a $5.00 adoption fee. If you are visiting the dog pound with the intention of adopting an animal you must bring a cat carrier or dog leash with you. We do not provide these items for you.

Sponsor a pound pet!

Are you unable to adopt a pet, but still want to help out? Many animals come to the shelter and are not spayed/neutered or vaccinated. The town does not give us the funds to this this, but we can get pets these procedures with your help. Please contact us if you are interested in donating the funds needed to spay/neuter/vaccinate an animal.

Come Visit Us!

We are located at the Town Landfill at 151 Greenhaven Road in the Pawcatuck section of Stonington.
