About Us

CONNECTICUT PETS ALIVE

By promoting adoption in a fun, positive, and whimsical way, we reshape the despondent stigma surrounding animal rescue and homeless pets. Connecticut Pets Alive brings light to the fact that there are a wide variety of animals that end up in shelters through no fault of their own.

Connecticut Pets Alive focuses on commonly passed over animals, the traditional underdogs, including seniors, those with special needs, showing that they are in fact the top dogs.

We aim to give our animals the best chance of finding their forever homes by educating the public about the importance of adoption and other issues relating to animal welfare in a warm, upbeat, and enjoyable way.

Connecticut Pets Alive is an equal opportunity rescue, welcoming all, promoting love, and encouraging spoiling our furry friends because, in the end, they’re the ones who rescue us.

What We Do

Connecticut Pets Alive will transport animals from high kill shelters with extreme pet overpopulation (known as sending shelters), to destination shelters, where there is a high demand for adoptable animals.

Effective animal relocation and transport can be key to saving more lives, especially animals who are euthanized because of shelter overcrowding.

Using the theories of supply and demand, relocation programs save lives and give shelter pets the best chance of finding safe and loving homes by transporting them from areas of oversupply— where the likelihood of adoption is slim—to locations where there are few, if any, similar animals in shelters and the chances of adoption are greater.
