Mansfield Animal Shelter has dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens for adoption. Adopt a pet in Mansfield, CT.
The Mansfield Animal Shelter's mission is to achieve the most efficient and effective use of resources for the benefit of the citizens and animals, to create an environment in which people can move about safely (law enforcement), and to minimize euthanasia by promoting our facility's pets for adoption in as many ways as possible.
We offer a clean facility with helpful and knowledgeable staff. The staff and our many volunteers spend a lot of time getting to know, socializing and training our pets. All pets receive medical attention, are checked for parasites and are groomed. Our pets are mostly Mansfield strays, some pets are surrendered by their owners. We use a pet adoption application to ensure the right match between pet and owner. Our goal is to place our pets in responsible and stable homes. The animal control officer has the authority to approve, delay or deny any application. The adoption is not a purchase, it is a lifelong commitment. We offer a "trial day" for dogs. This is a day in which new owners get to know the dog in a home situation. We are always prepared to take a pet back if it doesn't work out. We strongly recommend group obedience training for a successful relationship with your new dog. We want the adoption process to be a positive experience. We have placed many many pets in loving homes and we pride ourselves on having many satisfied adopters.

Mansfield Petco Adoptions Dec 14, 2013 ..
The Mansfield Facility is a city shelter used to hold, care for and adopt out impounded strays and owner released animals. Our purpose is to promote safe neighborhoods for people and their pets.Ms. Baley was adopted in August 2016 and has done nothing but bring smiles to our home. She’s the sweetest girl, loves everyone, and can typically be found nudging your hand or pawing at you for some petting. She may be a bit old and stiff, but some days she’s there first before the 7 year old in the background to greet whoever is at the door. Thank you Mansfield Shelter for the wonderful work you do for pets in need. Your staff was top notch, your dedication to ensuring pets are healthy and going to good loving homes is paramount. Ms. Baley is as happy as could be in her new home.Kittens require extra veterinary care. They will have received their 8 week distemper shots by the time they are ready for adoption, but adopters will be responsible for taking kittens to a vet for 12 and 16 week distemper shots, rabies vaccination, and spay/neuter surgery. In addition to the $140 fee to adopt a pet, the shelter is required by law to take a $40 spay/neuter deposit fee. When the owner has his kitten spayed or neutered, he may send a copy of the paperwork to the Mansfield Shelter Friends and request a refund of the $40 deposit, or leave it as a donation. Can’t make it to any of our three shelters to adopt a or during the ? Then visit our Mobile Adoption event on Saturday, June 8 at the Mansfield Petco!
