    The Robin I. Kroogman Animal Shelter

    The Robin I. Kroogman Animal Shelter is a division of the New Haven Police Department. The overall goal of the animal shelter and its staff is to service the community as effectively as possible. Members of this unit will care for all animals with compassion, using the safest and most humane treatment.

    The Robin I. Kroogman Animal Shelter is the second largest municipal animal shelter in the State of Connecticut, with over 60 dog runs, attracting over 3,200 visitors annually. The animal shelter takes in about 2,000 dogs and cats each year. The Animal Shelter takes in about 900 animals each year. Through its partnership with the Humane Commission, Friends of the New Haven Animal Shelter, and the North Shore Animal League, the animal shelter sponsors several adoption events throughout the year, leading to an adoption rate of 75-80 percent, or roughly 1,500 dogs and cats.  Nearly all pets for adoption find homes.
