The Mission of the Little Guild is to shelter and care for homeless cats and dogs, to find them loving new families, and to support their transition into homes through education and enrichment for both animals and adopters. They also serve the broader community through such programs as reduced-cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinics, a free pet food pantry, and pet-related education events.
The Little Guild, is the only limited admission shelter in northwest Connecticut, was founded in 1960 by Muriel Alvord Ward and Eleanora Kleinschmidt. The current 3,000-square-foot facility accommodates 16 dogs and 25 cats comfortably at any time.

Please note that we are often asked if dogs are “house trained”. The dogs are in fact living in a kennel environment during their time with us. Even if they have previously lived in a home and been trained – the stress of the change and the new home can sometimes cause regression and require some additional training. We feel that it’s best for all adopters to be prepared for this possibility.
Visit our adoption page for details about our process, and to fill out an adoption application. All animals come spayed/neutered, UTD on vaccines, and micro-chipped. If the animals age or health prevents any of these from being completed prior to adoption a voucher is issued for the services to be performed. If you have any questions about the animal, or our adoption process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Little Guild is a 501c(3) federally recognized non-profit organization devoted to saving the lives of homeless pets.
