Where the Love Is, Inc. (WTLI) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit animal rescue organization founded in Hamden, CT in July 2013 and serves communities throughout Connecticut, and beyond.
  • We are dedicated to aiding in the prevention of abuse and cruelty to animals by promoting the adoption of abandoned and unwanted pets and providing those same pets with medical attention, including spaying and neutering.
  • The pets we rescue are often neglected, abused, sick and starving.
  • We ensure all pets are fed, fully vetted, receive love and some training before they are adopted out.
We have rescued and adopted out over 600 dogs and cats throughout Connecticut and beyond, including dogs from shelters in Texas, Louisiana and Georgia. Our shelter is run 100% by volunteers and donations, which means we depend on you. 
Please explore our website for more information about events, fundraising, adopting, volunteering, and donating.
We love hearing from you - please feel free to contact us by email or call.
