Welcome to


Winter Holiday Market



directly support the animals in our care

With the uncertainty of the times, and with a genuine concern for everyone's well-being,  we are taking a course that is... well, non-traditional for AWS. This season we are offering our first ever holiday market, where you can do some holiday shopping for friends and family (or yourself!) and have a large portion of the proceeds donated directly to AWS. You will also have the convenience of the products being shipped directly to you. The holiday market will run from November 1 through November 30, so don't delay!

From the Shelter


Winter on the New Milford Green. An enchanting rendering by Maggie Gruar displays the New Milford Green Gazebo and Town Hall in a wonderful snow setting. Each pack includes 8 blank fold-open Christmas Cards with envelopes – ready for your personal message and addressing. The back of the card includes the AWS logo and address.


Imprinted snowflake ornaments are perfect gifts around the holidays. Each ornament is made from wood, for a natural look and feel – imprinted with the Shelter's logo. Includes a twine hanging string and envelope.

Size: 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" x 1/8".

AWS Holiday Partners

Perfect gifts for the holidays or to add blooms to your own home during the winter months. Choose from a variety of Winter/Holiday Flowers picked for AWS. Each kit includes: Flower bulb, plastic growing pot, soil disc, planting instructions and a gift tag. These ready-to-grow bulbs will bloom in 4-8 weeks!

Healthy, homegrown, New England maple syrups with a variety of flavors. Truly unique. These syrups are traditional slow-boiled over an open flame – on a farm in Vermont, giving it its rich caramel color and robust taste. Syrups, meal kits and special gift offers available.

We pride ourselves on offering the best custom blended teas, kombucha, medicinal teas, cocktail teas, hot chocolates, tea-based spices, and trendy accessories. We are confident that we have something for everyone!
