Batman is a 7-year old pit bull mix who can live in just about any size home with adults and kids over 8 years old. He likes other dogs so may do well in a multi-pooch family. He is fairly calm, but needs daily exercise to stay happy. His new family should have previous experience raising large dogs. He’s available in Newington.
Tune in on Tuesday mornings.
Momo is a 2-year old, funny, happy chinchilla. He sleeps most of the day and parties all night! He enjoys apple sticks, green apples, plain cheerios, chinchilla treats, romaine lettuce, bok choy and of course hay and pellets. He most thoroughly enjoys his dust bath every few days. He likes to take treats from you! He’s the perfect choice for a family with previous chinchilla experience. He’s ready to fill your life with love and available in Newington.
Tune in on Sunday mornings.
Mitsy and Tillie are 11-year old sisters and BFFs. They have been together their entire lives and don’t want that to change. They may enjoy the company of respectful kids or a sweet dog in their new home. They prefer peace and quiet rather than chaos. They must go home together and are waiting for you to fall in love. They are available in Newington.
Tune in on Monday mornings.
Spazzy is a 12-year old domestic short haired cat. Despite what her name implies, she is a quiet and reserved kitty looking for a peaceful home. She does not have experience with other pets or children, so may prefer to have all of your attention. She is available in Waterford.
Tune in on Wednesday mornings.
Meet Wild, a six month old domestic fancy rat. He is as curious as his picture indicates, coming out to greet everyone who visits his cage. Rats are intelligent and playful creatures and make great pets for adults and older children. They are easy to care for once you have learned how to do it. They often do best in pairs, and Wild is no exception. He can be adopted with his brother Timber. They’re available in Westport.
Local pet lovers and pet-loving businesses sponsor the care of hard-to-place pets as they are in the adoption center longer than others.

Domestic longhair mix
Ike is currently in foster care in Westport. Ike is a sweet, playful, but very shy indoor-only cat and acclimates slowly to new people, so needs a patient family ready to put in the time to bring him out of his shell. He enjoys looking out the window, and his favorite toys are the ball with the bell inside and Tower of Tracks 3 tier toy. He spends most of his day doing Parkour off every surface he can touch no matter what time of day. He is fast and nimble!
