Adopt a Less Adoptable FriendPlease read the guidelines below for filling out the online application.

There is a $20 non-refundable application fee when applying online to adopt a dog or cat.
Online applications may expedite the adoption process and may make additional trips to the shelter unnecessary.


In order to be considered for adoption you must:

•     Be 21 years of age, or older.
•     Have knowledge and consent of all adults living in your household.
•     Have the landlords consent (if rental).
•     Understand that SPCA of Connecticut has the right to deny your application.

There is no fee for filling out an application at the shelter or an event.

However, all advanced or online applications require a $20 non-refundable application fee.

This fee does not guarantee availability or application approval. This fee is not part of the adoption fee. This fee is not refundable. You must be 21 years of age to complete an application. Once your application and fee have been received, we will contact you to discuss your application.
