What we are about:

The Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter has been helping homeless animals along the Connecticut shoreline and vicinity since April 2003.

Hundreds of displaced animals come through our doors each year and it takes a lot of time, rehabilitation and veterinary care to place them into new homes.

With such great support from the Town of Branford, our dedicated staff and our terrific volunteer base, we provide some of the best animal control & shelter services available in the state.

We are so much more than a traditional shelter! We offer many programs and services to educate, inform and inspire people to take responsible care of their pets and to treat them with the kindness they deserve. With the support from people from all over Connecticut and beyond, we are helping to create a better community for all.

Some of our great rescue/accomplishments for this year:

Spot our Missouri dog
Bambi our baby fawn
Blind baby skunk
Fox hit by car
Dale our Chug
Muscovy duckling
Raccoon in bay window napping
Fourteen newborn puppies abandoned in a cooler
