Featured Adoption

Hi my name is Hannah

I am a 5 year old Pit Bull mix. I am about 50 lbs and I love to just go with the flow. I walk well on a leash and already know my basic commands. I just love being with my people... See more available dogs.

Featured Adoption

Hi I am Marge!

I’m smart, I’m curious & I love to play. In terms of demeanor, you can consider me a “teenager”. I will push boundaries but I also have a healthy respect for authority. I respond to confidence & I appreciate patience & understanding. A lot of my attitude is because I’m insecure. I’ve been passed from home to home. I am looking for that one home where I will spend the rest of my days....  See more available cats.

 Extending our Pawprint


POA has launched a campaign to create a professional clinic to meet the demand for affordable spay/neuter services.

150,000 feral cats in Hartford County alone.

There are few options for affordable spay/neuter services in the area, leading to increasing numbers of stray, feral and abandoned cats, and more and more abandoned dogs.

Learn how we are increasing the quality of life for all cats and dogs with preventative action through spay/neuter.



 Spay CT Program

Spay Connecticut is a program of Protectors of Animals, Inc. The purpose of this program is to end the suffering of innocent dogs and cats by reducing the number of unwanted births in the state of Connecticut by advocating for spaying and neutering of companion animals and feral cats. We do this by acting as a resource for low-cost spay/neuter information.


Use our online directory or call 1-844-772-9281 (844-SPAYCT1) to find low or reduced cost spay/neuter services in your area.
