Animal Control is responsible for enforcing state laws and town ordinances pertaining to animals. We handle roaming, barking, and litter complaints, as well as animal bites, animal cruelty issues, and wildlife complaints. We also monitor for compliance with dog licensing and rabies vaccination laws. Our dog pound, located to the rear of the Parks and Recreation Department at 1086 New London Tpke. is where we care for animals. Roaming dogs are brought to the pound where they are often reunited with their owners. Stray dogs are also housed at the pound. The law requires a stray dog be advertised and held for a seven day period. Currently, the Town uses the “Lost and Found” section of the Hartford Courant. If the owner is not located within that time and the animal is suitable for adoption (i.e. passes certain tests) it will be adopted out to the BEST possible home. There are many criteria we use to ascertain a dog “suitable” for adoption, and some dogs and potential adopters are not a good “match”. Final decisions are made by the animal control officers conducting adoption interviews. Being turned down for one particular dog does not mean you are not a great potential pet owner….just not the best match for that particular animal. We do, at times, have to euthanize animals in our care because they are too sick, old, or aggressive for placement. That option is exercised only after all other avenues for placement and health care have been explored.
