If you’re looking for a pet, drop into the Connecticut Humane Society’s Waterford branch and have a look around. They have dogs, cats and the occasional small animal.
The animal shelter is located at 169 Old Colchester Road and is open Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dog adoption hours begin at 10:30 a.m. The phone number is 860-442-8583.
Humane Society employee Rachel McCabe introduced us to these animals this week:
Gerty is a 4-year-old cat looking for a “nice comfy lap to lay on and get lots of attention”.
Snoflake, Ol’Blue and Bat Bird are 4-year-old parakeets looking for a home where they can stay together and have someone sing songs to them.
Tucker is a very happy and friendly dog “who likes the ladies.”
Animals are adopted and dropped off at the Humane Society on a daily basis and most of the animals in this video series have been adopted, however these ones are still waiting for someone to bring them home:
