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:
Casey, a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois mix who is very playful,
and Meg, a two-year-old, calm black-and-white cat.
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:
Lucy, a laid-back black cat,
Tzemer, a guinea pig who likes to jump,
five playful gerbils with furry tails.
Leonardo, an athletic, handsome Doberman-mix,
Kitty, a younger cat who enjoys her me-time,
Ceridwen, a very social ferret looking for love.
Romper Roo, an active dog who loves people,
and Prettiest, a sweet cat who loves to be pet.
