About US

The Plainfield Animal Control Department is a municipal Animal Shelter (Dog Pound).  On average, we process 100 dogs per year with an adoption rate well over 90%.  

The Animal Control Officer and the Assistant Animal Control Officer are responsible for enforcing all Connecticut Animal Control Laws.  We offer a yearly rabies clinic sponsored by the Connecticut Municipal Animal Control Officers Association, the Plainfield Veterinary Hospital and the Plainfield Town Clerk. 

Please Note: As indicated in the upper right corner, the Plainfield Animal Control Office is not located at the Plainfield Police Department.  It is located at 5 Unity Street in the Moosup Village of Plainfield, CT.

Our primary goals are to educate the public, enforce all animal related laws, reunite lost pets with their owners, find loving homes for the dogs that are not claimed by their owners or given up by their owners, and to maintain a clean and healthy environment at the shelter

In an emergency dial 9-1-1.  You will be routed to the Plainfield Police Department.
