Pet Adoption

Pet Adoptions ~ “When you look into the eyes of an animal you’ve rescued, you can’t help but fall in love.” — Paul Shaffer

SUFA is pleased to refer you to the Westerly Animal Shelter, Hopkinton Animal Shelter, Stonington Animal Shelter, North Stonington Animal Shelter, Bed and Biscuit Inn Adoptable Dogs, and Wings of Freedom for pet adoptions.  Please remember, a pet is a life long responsibility and many of these animals have already been abandoned.  It’s also important to allow for “decompression when bringing home a new pet”.  Please read this article from American Kennel Club for tips on what to do and how to recognize signs of stress.

Our Featured Pets are also available for adoption.
