Bankwell Pet Adoption Project

Our Best Savings Plan Ever!

We are excited to announce the launch of the 2018 Bankwell Pet Adoption Project!


Our goal is to create awareness about the many dogs and cats in need of homes at animal shelters throughout Fairfield and New Haven counties. All Bankwell branches will feature photographs and information about available pets that are looking for fur-ever homes in our local shelters. Our branches will also serve as a collection point for a "wish list" to benefit our local shelters. See below for wish list and additional information about our project.
