Pet of The Week

This week from the Connecticut Humane Society’s Waterford Branch we have Jasper!!!  Jasper is a 1 ½ year old American Pit Bull Terrier mix.  He is a neutered male.  Jasper has been with us for almost a month and came to us from another rescue in Connecticut.  Jasper would do well in any sized home, including apartments but would do best in an adult home only.  Jasper tends to be a really shy guy at first and does take some time to warm up to you.  He is good with other dogs and may do well with cats.  If you have any questions on Jasper or any of the other animals at the shelter, give us a call at (860) 442 8583, check out our website at www.cthumane.org or stop in at 169 Old Colchester Road in Quaker Hill.  Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page!!
