New Dogs are here!

Where the Love Is, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter based in Hamden, Connecticut. It is dedicated to the prevention of animal cruelty and abuse, giving pets a new "leash" on life and finding them a loving forever home.

Each pet is fully vetted, receives some training, and gets lots of love before they are matched with a new family. Where the Love Is relies fully on volunteers, so 100% of your donation goes toward the animals’ health care and social and emotional well-being. 

It's the Holiday Season

and Santa Paws is coming to town with a reminder that a pet is a big commitment and shouldn't be a surprise. Consider gifting this certificate to pick out a rescue pet AFTER the holidays when the decision can be made together. A donation to Where the Love Is also makes a great gift!

Please come meet Rosie.One word describes Rosie: SURVIVOR!
