The following introduces the organizations mentioned/linked above in this section:
Connecticut Audubon Society
Connecticut Audubon Society conserves Connecticut’s environment through science-based education and advocacy focused on the state’s bird populations and habitats.

Recycling is the process of taking a product at the end of its useful life and using all or part of it to make another product. The internationally recognized symbol for recycling includes three arrows moving in a triangle. Each arrow represents a different part of the recycling process, from collection to re-manufacture to resale. But what does all this have to do with you? Well, recycling is a simple way that you, as a consumer, can help out the environment, create a profitable market for recycled goods and help preserve natural resources from being depleted. So...let's get involved!
Stratford Animal Rescue
The Stratford Animal Rescue Society is a non-profit volunteer organization, founded in September 2000, with the unanimous support of the Stratford Town Council to promote the cause of animal welfare for animals housed in the Stratford Animal Control Facility. Our primary purpose is to facilitate and expedite adoptions of homeless animals into homes. In addition, we raise funds through private donations and public fundraisers to provide food and medical care for animals impounded at the Stratford Animal Control Facility.
Stratford Cat Project
Stratford Cat Project is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue of homeless and abandoned cats in Stratford and surrounding communities. Founded in 2001, Stratford Cat Project rescues stray cats, provides veterinary care, food, shelter, socialization, and love until an animal is ready for adoption. We are not a shelter and do not have a facility. All of our animals live in foster homes.
