    I went to the Protector of Animals to donate food and items after my parents dog had passed. It was rewarding to know his items were going to good use. I was also impressed with the staff and with their compassion and understanding.


    Great care


    busy at times

    My first impression with POA was the professionalism of their web site and the convenience I experienced in contacting the volunteers to inquire about animals housed at their shelter. POA is the oldest and longest-running volunteer animal rescue organization in the State of CT. They work hard to place many abandoned and stray cats and dogs and carefully screen applicants before placing the pets in good homes. I'm impressed with their dedication and am proud to be a member of this fine organization.\r\n\r\n


    friendly, knowledgeable, kind-hearted volunteers


    they could use a new or renovated shelter to house the dogs
