was organized in 1960 in an effort to alleviate the plight of homeless pets in the Northwest corner of Connecticut. The shelter has evolved thru the years but their mission has remained true to its founder’s dream of providing a safe haven for needy pets until the appropriate home can be found. Sometimes a home is found quickly and other times it takes months or even years if the needs of the pet are more demanding and warrant a more specialized placement. Hundreds of pets are adopted each year after being brought back to a state of wellbeing both physically, emotionally and medically.

The Mr. Mike Fund was started by a very special family in Norfolk. Their beloved Cat “Mr. Mike” died of cancer in 1997. Following the loss of Mr. Mike the owners vowed that no animal should suffer because owners lacked the funds to afford the cost of medical treatment. They established this fund in an effort to help animals in need. Since this fund began, hundreds of animals have received treatment and many have found new homes. Since the start of this fund many more people have contributed to its cause perhaps in memory of a beloved pet or to celebrate the adoption of a new pet.
The doctors at Sand Road Animal Hospital often waive 100% of their own fees and provide medicines at cost in order to preserve the surplus of money in the Mr. Mike fund in order to help more animals and carry on the Mr. Mike Memorial Fund initiatives. If you would like to donate money to help stray, or needy animals in the Northwest corner that come thru our doors of the Sand Road Animal Hospital please click here. We thank you for supporting our efforts with the “Mr. Mike” Fund.

Better Days Rescue Fund
We are an all volunteer organization that relies on the kindness of people who donate money, food, litter and other necessities to care for the cats and kittens that we take in. Better Days is Based in Woodbury, CT.
We are not a shelter; our cats and kittens are cared for in foster homes where they get love and attention as close to a real home as possible. Unlike a shelter environment, foster homes have no cages. Cats and kittens that come in from outside get used to “home life,” the sound of the vacuum, dishwasher, TV. They get to sleep on our beds at night and in our laps while we watch TV. They live with us, so we care for them as our own and we know their personalities. This aids us in finding the best match and loving homes.
