Meet Hooch!

In December we adopted out all our pets, but one! He was found as a stray and we named him Hooch. As you can see he is super cute in his plaid coat. He is about 1.5 years old and 50 lbs and loves to go for walks even in the cold. He likes other dogs too! If you are interested please call us at 860-487-0137

Husky lovers, have we got a handsome boy for you!

Roscoe is only 6 months old, intact male, and every bit a puppy! He is 100% husky and looking for the right owner that can appreciate the husky spirit! He has been with other dogs so would likely do well with others but we always recommend a meet and greet with potential canine siblings.

Husky's can be a high energy breed and we recommend having breed knowledge before taking in a husky.

If you are interested in Roscoe, please fill out our application (located at the top of our Facebook stream) or stop by to fill out out. For questions, please call Norwich Animal Control 860-887-5747

Handsome Joseph is a full-grown 65-lb Labrador retriever mix who is about 4 years old. He is a friendly, good-natured boy who gets along with other dogs, especially the ladies, and loves attention from people. He is very well mannered and can show off many basic commands. He is also housebroken and crate trained. Joseph is an energetic boy who makes a great companion to bring along on a walk, jog, or hike. Joseph is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and comes with a month of pet health insurance. Interested in adopting apply at

Porsha is our special little girl from the Hartford pound. 

While she is a fantastic people dog, she is wary of other dogs and gets very scared/defensive if they approach her. She is currently in a foster home with other dogs but they are kept separated while they continue to work on her dog socialization skills but for right now the best thing for Porsha would be to find a foster or forever home with no other animals. She loves to meet new people and always has a smile on her face when she does. Porsha is such a cuddle bug! She just wants to be near people. Her personality has come out, she loves to run in the yard and on the snow trails. She is especially excited that the snow is melting and more of the yard is becoming accessible! Porsha is working hard on her dog skills. In addition to her individual walks she is now taking walks with the two other dogs in the home and has been doing well. She is great walking on a leash. Overall she is just fantastic! She is great in the house, doesn't chew or get into things. She is learning to play with toys and “fetch”. She is really good with "drop it". She is not a jumper or beggar, she smiles and wiggles her entire back end anytime someone comes in the door. Porsha is approximately 2 years old. She has been completely vetted. If you are interested in fostering her, we do provide our fosters with all supplies needed. If you are interested in adopting Porsha, her adoption fee is $250. Please email

We'd like to introduce you to a VERY special Dog Star named Pepper! She was being taken care of by the awesome folks at Bloomfield CT Animal Control, but spent a lot of time there with no adoptive family in sight! Unfortunately, it was just recently discovered that Pepper has Lyme AND Heartworm Disease. Can a girl catch a break?!? Well, she kind of did ... at least in some small part. She's now officially become a Dog Star and we are funding all of her highly expensive medical treatment! As soon as she's gone through treatment and is well again, she'll be ready for adoption! In the meantime, her foster mom, who also happens to make dog collars for her own etsy shop, is selling a Pepper-inspired martingale dog collar where 100% of the sales go directly to Pepper's medical fund. Your pup can sport this beautiful collar, or you can purchase the collar and donate it to Dog Star for use by another needy pup!

Head on over to Camp Carlson's etsy shop for more details, and to purchase your very own Pepper Fund collar!! Click here:

In the meantime, shout out in the comments to Bloomfield CT Animal Control and Jillian and Jon Carlson for taking such good care of this sweet girl through everything!!!
