I adopted my beautiful Lab 6 years ago and the joy she has brought us is unimaginable. I found that she was always happy for a return visit which tells me how well she was cared for. She was shy in the beginning, but I have added four grandchildren and she loves each one. The excitement when they visit is wonderful to see. My experience with this wonderful group is beyond explanation. Thank you!
I will forever be grateful to Wallingford Animal Control for rescuing Loki and letting us give him a forever home.
I adopted my dog Lucky from Wallingford Animal Control a few months ago. The people are wonderful! I could immediately see how much they care for animals. They are wonderful at matching animals with people. Lucky is a perfect fit in my life and I couldnt be happier with him. I also noticed how clean and organized they are, I have been to many shelters and animal controls and this one by far was the best I have seen. I would recommend WAC to anyone :)
