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:
A yellow lab named Amber who just wants to be loved,
and Feisty, a cat who has found peace, thanks to McCabe.
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:
Pinto, a happy, energetic pit bull mix,
Emma, an introspective orange-and-white cat,
Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears, two guinea pigs looking for love,
Lucy, a laid-back black cat,
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,
Puppet and Yates, a father-son bunny team.
Elli, a dog who has been at the shelter awhile,
Izzy, a blind cat,
and seven playful gerbils with furry tails.
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.
