We believe every dog deserves and belongs in a loving home. We hold lost dogs brought into the Shelter for three days to see if an owner is looking for them, if no owner comes forward after those three days we then take steps to prepare the dog for adoption.
We do this so that unwanted dogs can find a new, loving home.
To adopt, a Dog Adoption Form is required
Printable Form or Online Form
Dogs/Puppies: $140 (including license)
Senior Dogs: $90 (including license)
Owner Surrender Fee of $20, plus the license if not already licensed.
Adopting a dog is easy. Picking just one isn’t.
Adopting a dog from The Fairfield County Dog Adoption Center & Shelter is a simple process. Our friendly staff will help you every step of the way. Please note adoptions are on a first come first serve basis, but we will do all we can to help find the right dog for you.
• To adopt, you can browse animals online or in person at FCDACS. After you’ve found one (or more!), ask a staff member about its availability, known history, personality, likes/dislikes, and more.
• Then, you’ll need to complete a Dog Adoption Form. A staff member will review your Dog Adoption Form and ask you a few questions for clarification, if needed.
• Once approved, we’ll help you finalize paperwork.
• Next, you and your new family member will be on their way home.
