Flora's Pet Project

Naugatuck, CT

Our Mission

Flora's Pet Project, founded in 1999, rescues and rehomes abandoned or unwanted dogs and cats, and provides all necessary veterinary care for each one before placing them in carefully-screened, loving homes. We have no source of income other than donations, but we are a volunteer organization with no overhead, so 100% of each tax-deductible gift directly benefits the pets, whether for the premium food we feed or the incomparable veterinary care we provide. Our pets are locally-sourced, as well; every pet in our care was rescued, and is being fostered, in Connecticut.
Please contact us at to inquire about any pet--we look forward to hearing from you!

Adoption Policy

PLEASE NOTE: While the pandemic persists, we will consider adoption applications from CONNECTICUT RESIDENTS ONLY, and adoption visits will be conducted only under circumstances which can accommodate the need for social distancing.
WHO SHOULD APPLY TO ADOPT?: We specifically look for potential adopters with previous dog experience and a verifiable vet history, and because we have no opportunity to observe any of our pets interacting with young children, we do not place our dogs in homes with very young family members. With very rare exceptions, home ownership is required.
HOW TO APPLY TO ADOPT?: We share an adoption application with our friends at Poodle Rescue CT (the application link is on this page). Please E-MAIL us to let us know you've filed an application, and we will give our poodle friends a heads-up to be on the lookout for it. Please specify in the "name of pet" box that you are interested in FLORA'S [name of pet].
MEETING THE PET: Adoption applications will be reviewed within 24 hours (usually even faster) and if it looks as if there is a match to be made, we will make an appointment for you to visit the pet at his or her foster home at your convenience.
ADOPTION DONATIONS: Adoptions are by voluntary donation, but we suggest $300 for most dog adoptions and $125 for kittens and young cats (we spend an average of $500 on vet care for each pet we place).
CONTACT US: If you have questions about any pet, or about the process, please e-mail us at and we will get right back to you.
