Anyone interested in adopting may contact the Animal Control Officer. The ACO will then contact you if the dog becomes available.
If we have a dog that does not fit into the above, an ad is placed in a local paper. The ad contains the contact name and number for the ACO.
In both cases, adoptions are done on Saturday by appointment only through the ACO.
The Town of East Hampton has facilities to care for dogs and does not shelter any other animals.
Dog Adoption Fees
Spayed or neutered: $5.00

If a dog is adopted by a Connecticut resident and the dog is not spayed or neutered the adopter will receive a voucher from the Animal Population Control Program.
Out of state residents are not allowed to participate in the Animal Population Control Program.
