Living Well in Litchfield County, Connecticut

Animal Welfare Society

The Animal Welfare Society, Inc. (AWS) was founded in 1965 as an independent, non-profit, non-destroy animal rescue organization. AWS offers refuge to homeless and abandoned dogs and cats, and places them in loving, responsible homes. Each year hundreds of animals are rescued by AWS from our local communities, throughout our state and from high-kill facilities outside of Connecticut.

There are many areas available for volunteers and many ways to assist the shelter. The volunteer page of their website has a partial list of opportunities.
