WHO WE AREThe Oxford Animal Shelter is a municipal animal control facility. As much as we can, we provide the basics of care for the animals, but what they really need is a loving stable home environment to truly be happy. The animals are cared for, groomed and exercised by a dedicated group of volunteers who have lots of love and attention to give the animals, but a loving home is what they really need...

INTERESTED IN ADOPTING A FRIEND?If you currently have a dog in the home and are looking to add another one, PLEASE make sure to bring your current dog with you to meet the potential new addition. This will help ensure a happy living situation for everyone, as well as less stress for everyone once you take the new pet home. Also, please review and print our Adoption Application (PDF*) form available on this website.
If you are interested in meeting any of the animals currently in residence, please e-mail us at the addresses listed below (firstname.lastname@example.org), or call us at 203-881-3653. Please make sure to leave a callback number when leaving a message for us! We can't get in touch with you if we can't call you back! You can also stop by any evening between 6:00-7:30 PM while we exercise, feed and care for the residents. They love meeting new people and might even share a toy with you!
