Mission Statement

Westport Animal Shelters Advocates (WASA) is a 501c3 organization dedicated to the care and welfare of homeless dogs in Fairfield County, CT. Our primary focus is attending to the needs of impounded dogs at Westport Animal Control in Westport, CT. We provide funds for their vet care, exercise, train and promote the dogs as well as perform home and reference checks in order to ensure that the dogs are placed safely in loving homes. Westport Animal Control located on Elaine Road in Westport, is a no kill shelter where homeless dogs receive the love and care they need until their forever home is found.

Additionally, WASA has a small fostering network for homeless dogs that come from other Connecticut animal control facilities or come to WASA from Fairfield County residents that for a variety of reasons need to be rehomed.

WASA also assists area pet owners that are struggling financially in regard to providing vet care and adequate nutrition for their pets.
