Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>If you're looking for a new addition to your family—a furry addition that is—the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter is a great place to start. Run by the town's Director of Animal Control, Laura Selvaggio Burban, the shelter has 19 kennels, a critter room (featuring everything from bunnies to turtles) and a cat playroom for adopting families to peruse. There's an indoor behavior family room for prospective families to get acquainted with potential pets as well as an outdoor fenced-in yard for dogs to show off their ball-fetching skills.</p>
<p>Adoptions are by donation and animals come spayed or neutered. All animals are vaccinated and given a wellness check-up; dogs are tested for heartworm and cats are tested for feline AIDS and leukaemia.</p> <p>The shelter, in conjunction with Branford Compassion Club, hosts an annual Animal Awareness Day on the Branford green, which usually features a doggie kissing booth. North Branford and Northford also use the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter and its services.</p> <p>There are 50 core volunteers who work to make the shelter a clean and welcoming environment for both adoptive families who visit and the animals who live there.</p>
