Staff and volunteers at the Connecticut Humane Society work tirelessly to medically and behaviorally treat pets in crisis. Pets stay as long as needed at CHS; they are never euthanized for time, space, breed or age. In 2019, CHS’ live release rate (pets who came to CHS and were successfully placed with families or with other rescue groups, excluding owner-requested euthanasia or animals who were already deceased when brought to CHS) was 96%.
