The Choice Pet Rescue Me Program

For 30 years, Choice Pet has been dedicated to assisting local adoption agencies and rescue groups do what they do best:

  • Care for the deserving animals they nurture and protect
  • Find loving responsible homes for the rescues in their charge
  • Increase opportunities to reach potential adopters through exposure and events
  • Help new pet parents create a healthy and happy relationship with their new pal
  • Foster understanding of the value of the irreplaceable  human-animal  connection
  • Identify resources, such as access to affordable basic veterinary services


Please Join Us

Through the Rescue Me Program we offer real benefits to both adoption groups and new pet parents.

Each and every time a pet is adopted, the rescue/ adoption group or agency directly receives a:

$20.00 Donation

Each new adoptive pet parent in proximity to one of our locations receives a:

$25 Choice Pet Gift Voucher


Choice Pet is committed to hosting adoption events at all of our locations, supporting fundraisers, boosting community outreach and inviting our partner groups to participate with us in local community events that strengthen the precious relationship of pets with their human companions.

Our customers also love our “Rescue Me” reusable shopping bags….good for the environment – good for pets!  For each shopping bag purchased, Choice Pet donates a portion of the sale to a local adoption or rescue group. Then each time a customer re-uses the bag when they shop at one of our stores, an additional 5 cent donation is made.

For over forty years the Danbury Animal Welfare Society, known as DAWS, has been devoted to promoting responsible pet guardianship and the humane treatment of animals.  Dedicated to keeping homeless pets safe, happy and sheltered, DAWS is responsible for hundreds of successful adoptions every year.   DAWS man programs, such as the Angel Pet Program, Low Cost Spay and Neuter Service, and their Trap, Neuter and Release Program provide invaluable services.  DAWS is looking ahead to opening a new facility that will allow them to do even more of their wonderful work!


The Connecticut Humane Society was founded in 1881, making it the oldest animal welfare organization in Connecticut! CHS helps thousands of pets every year, envisioning a Connecticut “where each companion animal finds a permanent, compassionate home, where communities are enriched by the special bond between people and animals, and where animal cruelty no longer exists.”  CHS is an independent non-profit organization and that relies solely on the generosity and support of donors and volunteers.


Pet Animal Welfare Society, known as PAWS rescues and re-homes more than 500 cats and dogs every year. PAWS began in 1962 and has continued to grow and expand, moving into their own facility in 2001. Their dedicated staff and volunteers provide shelter, medical care, and love to animals in need and work hard to find the right pet for each home and the right home for every pet.


Red Leash Rescue is a unique group devoted to adult and senior dog rescue. Their mission is to provide refuge, love and care to abandoned, surrendered or discarded dogs in our community.  Red Leash Rescue works with animal control facilities across Fairfield County, taking in adult and senior dogs overlooked by adopters or who are having difficulty in a facility.  RLR dogs  fostered in private homes where they recover from their experience in shelters or neglect and If any health concerns exist, they are addressed with trusted veterinary partners  Each dog is lovingly cared for, trained as needed and prepared for successful placement in a permanent home. RLR’s goal is to add a “Home” for Adult/Senior dogs to their foster network.  Adopters will be able to interact with available dogs in a home setting and those adult and seniors unable to be adopted will have the opportunity to live the remainder of their lives as part of a pack, cherished and cared for until their natural end.
