Pet Connections, Inc

Dedicated to animal rescue & rehabilitation, Old Lyme, CT



Since 1990, Pet Connections, Inc. has been a community leader in rescuing and placing abandoned and abused pets in responsible, loving homes.

To serve this goal we provide fostering, rehabilitation, veterinary care, adoption referrals, and lost-and-found assistance. This is a true community effort: our all-volunteer organization is funded only by private contributions, and our members offer their own homes to foster animals until they can be placed.

Our hope for a bright future envisions the establishment of a permanent shelter to facilitate more efficient, comprehensive care for all our charges. With the community’s active interest and generous support, this goal may soon become a reality, enabling us to better serve the animal community of southeastern Connecticut.

Adopting a Pet


We understand what a big decision it is to welcome a new pet into your home. Because of the wide variety of breeds, ages and activity levels of the animals available, our adoption process begins by getting to know you and your family.
