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:
Skittles, a timid but lovable 10-month-old dog,
Amy and Jeorgia, two kittens who have been at the shelter awhile,
and Violet and Dusty, two attractive rabbit sisters.
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:
three playful gerbils with furry tails.
Casey, a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois-mix who is very playful,
Buddy Love, a lab-mix with a name full of soul,
Mr. Peanut, a stray cat looking for somebody to love him,
Night Hawk, a 1-year-old cat who loves to play,
Beauty, a spotted white cat who lives up to her name,
and Maggie, an extremely active dog who loves to run,
