Helping Connecticut Canines

In my mind, this page is a community effort to find homes for those four legged beings that do not have one, and most of my postings will showcase our shelter dogs.  It is also, in my mind, a community effort to provide SUPPORT to our Animal Control Officers who certainly cannot find all these homes needed on their own.  They welcome and appreciate our help!  Please know that when I post the word “Urgent” (which I hate, by the way as do they), it is because an Animal Control Officer reached out for help and understand we can offer that help through social media outlets.  We have losses every year, and I cannot blame that on our Animal Control Officers.  They are the ones who spend the time with our stray dogs, our dumped dogs, the abused, the neglected and owner turn-ins.  They get to know them, care for them, feed them, exercise them, evaluate them, wonder what to do with them, wonder how and where to place them, and fall in love with them.  They do all this in between their many calls for assistance and investigating complaints in their respective towns.  To ANYONE who may have flippantly said they don’t care among other awful comments … don’t do it here.  Please.  Instead, do something to help them help the ones they are rooting for … that is what will get them home.  We all want the same thing.  Safety, comfort, and lots of happy endings.  I have no doubt.  (In memory of Roy Marcum)
