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 last week:
A dog named Elli who has been at the shelter awhile,
A blind cat named Izzy,
and seven playful gerbils with furry tails.
Animals are adopted and dropped off at the Humane Society on a daily basis so if you see an animal in this video who you want, act fast. If you miss your chance however, these ones are still waiting for someone to bring them home:
Chief, a socialized ferrets.
Rosie Ross, a male cat who loves affection,
Pinto, a happy, energetic pit bull mix,
Emma, an introspective orange-and-white cat,
Max, a very good looking male cat who needs someone to love,
Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears, two guinea pigs looking for love,
Lucy, a laid-back black cat,
Fritz, a cautious, hypoallergenic five-year-old dog,
Tzemer, a guinea pig who likes to jump,
Wilson, an albino rat.
Marco, an active, 2-year-old dog,
Chardonnay, a beautiful, relaxed tiger cat,
and Puppet and Yates, a father-son bunny team.
If you aren’t interested in any of these animals, log onto the Humane Society website to see a gallery of all the adoptable pets.
If you have plenty of pets at home but still want to help out these great animals, the Humane Society is always accepting donations of food, toys and supplies.
