Pinky arrives at CHS on October 12th from Florida. She’d already been in a shelter when Hurricane Ian struck the state, and in an effort to make space for pets displaced during the storm, CHS in partnership with the Bissell Pet Foundation transferred her to Connecticut for a fresh start.

Pinky passes the medical team’s exam with flying colors, but will need to be spayed. She is placed on the surgery list for her spay surgery here at CHS.
