About Us

Tail To Paw Animal Support is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity that provides owners with access to free or low cost medical assistance, food, vaccinations and other care regardless of their housing or income insecurity.  By providing more easily accessible resources to the disabled, veterans, homeless, seniors and low-income, Tail To Paw helps to keep animals with their owners and reduce abandonment and surrender to shelters and the streets.

Tail To Paw Animal Support works with owners who depend on the companionship of their animals within the Greater New Haven Community, and beyond, in Connecticut.  We focus this effort among the following populations:  homeless/unsheltered, at risk homeless, disabled, veterans, seniors and low-income.

Tail To Paw assists owners to keep their companion animals with them, by offering services through multiple programs:

  • Access to pet food and supplies at no cost or subsidized pricing

  • Access to vaccinations, spay/neuter, basic medical or emergency medical at no cost or subsidized pricing

  • Case management for all participants to assist with other benefits including, but not limited to SNAP, energy assistance, etc.

  • Public educational seminars for pet owners

Rosie Torok

All my life, I have felt a strong connection with animals. They have been there for me in my darkest of moments, and words simply cannot express my gratification for the undying love and compassion they have brought into my life. Titus and Umi, my beloved fur babies, are not only my pets, they are family. They are my son and my daughter, a blessing that brings happiness into not only my life but also my son's. Understanding firsthand of the joy and support an animal companion can add to one's life, I find it crucial to be a pillar of strength and an alliance for both owners and pets whom find themselves in the face of hardship. Together, we can. 🐾🖤
