All steps of the adoption process are now taking place in person for Newington. In order to best serve pets in CHS' care and to efficiently serve the community, the Waterford and Westport locations are operating on an appointment-only schedule. Adoptions for pets at these locations will begin online via online application.

Use the database below to see the pets currently available. It’s refreshed every 5 minutes to ensure it’s the most up-to-date listing of pets ready for a family. You may sort by location, type of pet, and age. Click on the pets’ photos to view their profiles. If a pet seems like a good fit for you, visit the CHS location where the pet is located in person to fill out an adoption questionnaire. The questionnaires will be reviewed in the order in which they were received. Read more on CHS’ adoption process here.

Applications are only accepted for pets who are currently available. General inquiry applications are not able to be accepted and there are no wait lists available for a certain type of pet.
