"Companion Pet Rescue (CPR) was founded in 2004 and rescues and adopts out over 2,500 dogs per year thanks to a small number of dedicated volunteers!
In 2011, we were thrilled to open our New England Adoption Center at Willow Creek in Southbury! While adopters can still adopt and pick up directly from transport, our adoption center gives families that want to meet several pups that opportunity. Most of our pups start in the south, where overpopulation has created shelters overflowing with social, loving dogs who have almost no hope. Because our volunteers all have dogs and children, we ONLY rescue happy, social pups that will be great family companions! Companion Pet Rescue & Transport, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization. Our adoption fee reflects that your pup has been spayed/neutered prior to adoption, which is the only responsible way to rescue. In addition, it has been vaccinated as age-appropriate (minimum of 2 vaccines) and is current on flea/tick and heartworm preventative."
