Connecticut Humane Society
The Connecticut Humane Society has pledged to, “promote humanity and kindness, and to prevent cruelty to man and animals.” This mission, established in 1881, still guides the private charity in all that they do.
The CT Humane Society operates three adoption facilities throughout the state: Newington, Waterford and Westport. Online pictures and animal profiles are available, along with pets that are available at the CHS’s sanctuary. This home like setting is available to pets who have been in the traditional shelter setting for more than 90 days and are still looking for their “forever home”.

As dog bite lawyers we are acutely aware that prevention is key to stopping dog bite and attacks in Connecticut. Too often, though not always, the dog who attacked a person or other animal had been neglected, abused or at the very least let unattended for long periods of time. We hope that the above information will help you learn more about the Connecticut Humane Society and their role in preventing animal neglect and cruelty.
