Our Approach

pets on wheels of connecticut

Pets on Wheels of Connecticut, Inc. is a 501(c) (3).  We believe that no one should be denied their own pet.  We make a difference one pet and one person at a time.  Our Wheels take animals from rescue shelter cages to loving homes.  Assistance can range from paying for the medical checkups to transporting the pet for the checkup.  Pets on Wheels CT (PetsOnWheelsCT.org) strives to improve the lives of people whose mental or physical health would benefit from owning a pet but need assistance.  The organization works through a referral network of health care professionals and faith-based organizations to place suitable homeless animals with people who will benefit from the human-animal bond.

Placement starts with a referral from our network of professionals, including physicians, social workers, faith-based organizations, elder care practitioners who know people who would benefit from having a pet and are aware of their need for some type of assistance to make this happen.

All cats and dogs placed are from rescue shelters ready and waiting to be adopted.

We evaluate recipients to find out what assistance they need to insure a happy home for the pet and the person.

We permanently place pets with people who want and need a pet companion.

We support the benefits of the human/animal bond for people of all ages.  *View Benefits of the Human/Animal Bond

We provide transportation (if necessary) for the placement of the pet, as well as vet visits.
