Mission Statement

The New Haven Humane Commission is appointed by the Mayor to provide animal welfare oversight, including the authority to adopt such rules and regulations that in its judgment are required for the operation of the animal shelter and related activities, and for the proper care and treatment of animals within the city limits.

Description

Our focus is:

-- to advocate for the humane treatment of all New Haven companion animals.

-- to educate the public on responsible pet ownership emphasizing spay/neuter, vaccination programs, and practical, humane advice on pet behavior for owners; and to encourage continuing education for shelter personnel and other animal professionals.

-- to support the expedited adoption of companion animals at the city's animal shelter and those animals that have been pulled for adoption by area rescue organizations.

-- to promote the saving of lives of all healthy and treatable companion animals.

-- to disseminate public information regarding the humane welfare of companion animals.

-- to foster an ongoing dialog and system of shared resources with area humane welfare organizations that embrace this common vision.
