Our Mission

New Britain Animal Control is operated by dedicated and caring Police Officers from the New Britain police Department.  We take in abandoned animals and care for them until we can find them loving homes.  We also investigate animal cruelty, enforce animal laws, and educate the public on responsible pet ownership.  

Adoption Policy

Owning a pet comes with a lot of responsibility, physically, financially, and emmotionally.  Make sure you and everyone who lives in your household are ready to take on this responsibility before you bring a pet home! 


Adopting a dog from a municipal shelter can be challenging, but it will be the most rewarding event of your life.  Shelter dogs are often adult dogs that come with a history completely unknown to us.  They may need leash training, house training, and they may need to be taught their basic commands. We do our best to temperament test them and place them with adopters best suited for their needs.  A shelter dog will be the most loyal and loving pet you have ever owned; they know you are rescuing them and providing them with the life they deserve.  Their love and loyalty for you will be unwavering for a lifetime! 


We are located at 642 Christian Lane in Berlin CT.  We are behind the New
