Adopt a Rescue Dog in CT

Are you looking to adopt a dog? You’ve come to the right place!

With weekly adoption events throughout the greater Hartford area, Dog Star Rescue is looking for forever homes for our rescue dogs. We’ve adopted over 5,000 dogs to homes throughout CT and have so many Success Stories from happy past Dog Star adopters.

Adoptable dogs

You can check out available dogs on our Adoptable Dogs page. From puppies to senior dogs, small dogs to big dogs, Dog Star Rescue is the best place to adopt your next best furry friend from. We get many new adoptable dogs each week so if you don’t see a furry friend that melts you, be sure to check back often. All of our dogs are either in foster homes or boarding facilities in CT, or coming up from our Southern rescue partners in the next few weeks.

Weekly adoption events

We always encourage you to come to any of our adoption events to meet our dogs in person. Before you come to an event though, it’s important to understand our adoption process.

  • Our adoption process starts with completion of our adoption application
  • Our adoption process also includes a calling your vet (if you’ve previously had a pet) so we can ensure that you’ve kept up with wellness checks and vaccinations, reference checks, a phone or interview, and/or meet and greet with family members.
  • If you already have other dogs in the home and have picked the perfect dog for you, we also require a dog meet and greet so we can ensure that we feel the pets will love each other as much as you love them. This most likely will happen at our Bloomfield, CT headquarters.
  • The pre-qualification process does take several days so we appreciate you understanding that our dedication to being thorough is so that we can ensure our dogs go to the best homes for them.
