Pets of the Week
Look who had their 15 minutes of fame this week! The pets love the pupperazzi and the chance to share their stories. Sorry, no pawtographs, but they are accepting interviews for new homes.
Tune in on Tuesday mornings.
Copper is a 5 year old treeing walker coonhound mix. This means he frequently has much to say and follows wherever his nose leads. Copper is still recovering from heartworm so will need a family that is able to follow veterinary orders to the letter to ensure his return to full health. He can live in a single family home and would like to share with another dog. He may be willing to live with kids and cats. He will need a family with previous large dog/hound experience. He is available in Newington.
Tune in on Thursday mornings.
Cammy is 7 years old. This retriever mix is interested in sharing her life with adults, kids over 6 years old and possibly another dog. She has told staff in clear terms, no cats please! Cammy loves to be outdoors and would enjoy a family that can take her walking every day. Her new family needs to have previous experience raising large dogs as she’s tall and strong! She’s available in Newington.
Tune in on Sunday mornings.
Beautiful has spent much of her life outside, on porches and in garages. At 12 years old, she is now eager to spend the rest of her days on your couch and inside where it’s warm and comfy. She has some special needs common to senior kitties. She loves other cats and also may be willing to share her new home with kids and a dog. She would prefer a calm and peaceful home. She is available in Newington.
Tune in on Monday mornings.
Smarty is a 13 year old, domestic short hair. Don’t let her age fool you though, she loves to play! Smarty is also content curled up under a nice warm blanket or in your lap. She is looking for a home where she can get all the attention- no other pets please. Smarty may be willing to share her home with children over 8 years of age who can be gentle and respectful of pets. She is available in Waterford.
Tune in on Wednesday mornings.
Elizabeth is a beautiful adult guinea pig who is white with a black saddle and mask. She is the sweetest girl and you can see it straight off the bat. Her disposition is so evident that out of the 20 odd other guinea pigs she came in with, the staff immediately fell in love with her. Due to her previous experience in a high volume guinea pig home, Elizabeth is territorial and defensive with other pigs so she should be the only piggie in the home. But that’s okay! Her social behavior with humans means she’ll fulfill all your tiny pet needs, from TV buddy to homework pal. She is available in Westport.
