We are the municipal animal shelter for the Town of Stafford, CT. We try not to terminate a animal's life if he/ she has the potential to be a great pet and be suitable for a new home. We try all measures to find out if the animal is adoptable and take appropriate measures to provide a good forever home for them! A reality is that, not all animals are adoptable and we assess that before a animal is posted to the public. Some of the animals posted on Petfinder are advertised in the local paper for their owners to find them (by Ct State Statue we advertise for one day.) Then (7) days after the date of the ad the animal is then available for adoption.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO LICENSE YOUR DOG AND MICROCHIP YOUR DOG OR CAT!! So that we can find you or you can find your companion.
