The Humane Commission addresses policy issues regarding animal welfare at the Robin I. Kroogman New Haven Animal Shelter and throughout the City of New Haven, Connecticut.
The New Haven Humane Commission is appointed by the Mayor to provide animal welfare oversight, including the authority to adopt such rules and regulations that in its judgment are required for the operation of the animal shelter and related activities, and for the proper care and treatment of animals within the city limits.
"The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated"- Mahatma Gandhi
The New Haven Humane Commission envisions and supports The Six Freedoms, as amended by Maddie's Fund, for all companion animals at our shelter and within the city limits:
The Humane Commission meets at 6:00 PM on the third Monday of each month except on Monday holidays. The meetings are held at the shelter, 81 Fournier Street and are open to the public.
The Commission invites you to invest in the Robin I. Kroogman New Haven Animal Shelter. Your financial support is critical to saving lives and creating happy healthy pet families in New Haven. Due to limited city funding, our future is dependent on the generosity of animal lovers through grants and bequests and fees for services. Every little bit counts! Your support enables us to continue to be a community resource committed to improving the quality of life of our animals by maintaining and enhancing our facility, equipment and programs.
Together, we can build a safe community where all companion animals are cared for without the threat of being homeless or unwanted.
Tax ID No. available on request.
