Who We Are
Whiskers Pet Rescue is a no-kill animal rescue organization in Connecticut, with adoption centers in both Southbury and Waterbury. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity made up entirely of volunteers committed to helping and caring for animals who have been abandoned, injured, abused, or neglected. We’re a hard-working group of people with a huge passion for helping our whiskered friends. We rescue and adopt out hundreds of pets each year, placing them in loving forever homes.
On May 14, 2016, we had the Grand Opening for our Cat Adoption Center in Bennett Square in Southbury. This center is truly a dream come true. It has given us the ability to rescue and provide a safe, loving, temporary home for many more cats in our community. In the first three months that our center was open, we adopted out over 75 cats and small animals into wonderful forever homes. But that was just the beginning! We are constantly rescuing new animals in need and we won’t rest until each and every one of them has found their forever family.
Whiskers Pet Rescue is also a PetSmart Charities Adoption Partner. We’re thrilled to showcase some of our fabulous felines in the Cat Room at the Waterbury PetSmart. We often have rabbits, guinea pigs, and other small animals available for adoption at PetSmart as well.
Come visit our wonderful rescue animals during adoption hours at either one of our adoption centers. We look forward to meeting you and helping you find your whiskered forever friend!
