The Connecticut Humane Society has been at the forefront of the animal welfare industry for 130 years. As we evolve to meet the needs of today’s community and their pets, we have created an updated mission statement that accurately reflects our goals. We have defined the core values that are the foundation of all our activities, programs and initiatives.
STEWARDSHIP: We manage and allocate all our resources to remain steadfast to our mission, to achieve the greatest good, and to ensure the future of our organization.
QUALITY CARE: Our actions and decisions are based on providing the best medical and shelter care and services to the most animals. We respect the life of each individual animal, while focusing on the welfare of staff, community, and the animal population as a whole.
COMMUNITY-FOCUSED: We enrich the Connecticut community we serve by placing safe, healthy companion animals in responsible, loving homes.
RESPECT: We treat all persons with dignity and respect in a non-judgemental manner. The general public, our staff members and volunteers are all viewed as our partners in improving animal welfare and in fulfilling our Mission.
