Very nice and caring people. Definitely care about finding the right home for each pet. My friend is going to be getting her forever dog in the next day or so. Cannot wait, he is such a love

I recently adopted 2 cats from there. In the cat room, you got to see cats that were confident and cared for, because they weren't always cooped up in the cage. I got to really get a feel for my new guys before adopting.

This organization is very clean, treat the cats and dogs amazingly well! They have an indoor/outdoor cat rooms and I observed all this when I adopted my beautiful cat! Even though she’s an adult, try an older animal, they are grateful!

We went to look at kitties. Ended up with two kittens. People were helpful answered all of our questions. Also, they loaned us two pet carriers for us to take our new babies home. Very glad we went to DAWS. ????

I love this place! They take such good care of their animals and don't lie about the animals history or conditions.

My husband and I found exactly what we were looking for in a dog with the help of Michelle! She was very helpful, knowledgeable and so kind! We are so grateful and appreciative for her help and the help of DAWS in assisting us in finding Lucy ????

Got my Shiba Inu neutered and the tech Nick was very helpful and thorough with explaining the whole experience and made me feel extremely comfortable leaving my dog in their care. He has fully healed and is going amazing!!!

Volunteer, Stu at DAWS, was so helpful finding us the perfect dog after a very long and often frustrating process at other animal rescues.

DAWS is great! Karen was super helpful and communicated with me through the entire process. She listened to what sized pup we were looking for and reached out as soon as she had a match for us. We adopted my 2 childhood dogs through them, and now finally my own. Sadie (or as she was known at DAWS- Boots) has settled in nicely and we love her so very much! Big thank you to everyone at DAWS for what you do

Very disappointing experience with Danbury Animal Welfare Society (DAWS). If you are using Petfinder to search for your next dog / furry family member, you should avoid this organization. After confirmation from Petfinder that our specific interest in a particular dog had been communicated to DAWS....it was advised that we check directly with the facility. Numerous phone calls over two weeks and confirmations led to a scheduled roadtrip... and a very excited family...only to be matched by a huge disappointment last minute that the specific dog was no longer available. These things happen but DAWS was particularly questionable in terms of how they go about dealing with and communicating with adopting families. If you are set on a particular breed and type of dog that you have found on their website, assume that it is a potential lure to get you to come in. They will make no attempt to let you know that your first choice is already gone. Adopting a new dog is a lifetime commitment and places like this make it an emotionally negative experience. Jan, 2021 - Update to my prior post: After being told by DAWS last minute that a dog I applied for (Baxter) had been adopted.... he suddenly re-appeared again under Petfinder. I checked the DAWS website directly and yes, Baxter, has again been listed as available for adoption but more interestingly there is a solicitation for sponsorship. I have screen copied the DAWS solicitation for sponsorship. I have not received further communication from DAWS to explain whether he was returned and newly available for adoption. If this is a solicitation for a dog that is no longer in their care, I would guess this verges on fraudulent activity. If anyone has information on this dogs existence, please feel free to comment. I welcome comments and look forward to hearing from DAWS directly to explain the situation with Baxter. As Bill Jasper sits on the Board of Directors, I am happy to communicate directly the perceived practices of your organization.

Very nice place saw two cute small dogs who really love having attention by jumping up and licking me and I would pet them too. I just love animals especially dogs are my favorite ones.

I was informed that This place had a dog named Ellie that they are hiding from the owner. The owner was homeless but can now care for their dog and has a home. DAW If you have Ellie why are you not giving her back to her family? I was also informed that one of your employees took Ellie home and had to bring her back because that Employees children frightened the pup. Do the right thing DAW.

I called them to make an appointment for spaying, rabies and distemperment- which we did make. They charged me $25 to make it. On the phone they ask me how old my kitten was and I told them. (10 weeks) when I dropped my kitten off I also filled out paperwork with her age. They took her in at 8:30 in the morning. Around 2pm while I was at work I got a call saying they didn’t give her rabies or spay her because of her AGE. Which I told them TWICE. They only gave her distemperment and an exam they decided to do without asking, charged me $30 for that and didn’t even refund me the $25 dollars to make the appointment when the whole point was the get her spayed. Lack of communication and waste of my time. What was she doing there all day? Sitting in a room alone?
