Our Mission

To Save, Socialize and Secure Loving Homes for Unwanted or Abandoned Dogs.

The History of Adopt-A-Dog

The History of Adopt-A-DogThree decades ago, three women had a vision. Donna Nives, Gloria Scheuer and Pam Fahnestock became concerned about the growing number of animals languishing in area shelters. The three friends organized an agency headquartered in Greenwich, CT to advertise various dogs and cats that were available for adoption. Adopt-A-Dog was born.

Our hopes and dreams for the future is to build an Animal Welfare Education & Rescue Center to ensure our mission lives on.
