BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — For the holidays, Bridgeport Animal Control is shining a light on its dogs and cats that are patiently waiting for their forever homes.
There are four easy steps necessary to adopt one of these furry friends. There are currently 38 dogs and two cats in need of a home at the animal shelter.
"With the gift giving season underway, now is the perfect time to apply for animal adoption and change the life of a pet in need right here in Bridgeport," the city said in a statement.
Here are the steps to adopting a pet at the Bridgeport Animal Control:
- Drop by and meet the animals: Bridgeport Animal Control is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Complete the application Process: You will need to complete a written application, available online, and provide proof of home ownership (such as a mortgage statement, tax bill, etc.) or a notarized letter from your landlord if you rent.
- If you already have dogs, complete a meet and greet with the dog you are looking to adopt.
- Bring $75 cash or check and submit all paperwork. BPT Animal Control will transport the pet to a veterinarian to get spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated before going home with you.
