Pet Of The Week
This week from the Connecticut Humane Society’s Waterford Branch we have Misty!! Misty is a 2 year old Labrador Retriever mix. She is a spayed female. Misty has been with us for over a week and came to us from another rescue organization. She is good with older children and has done well with other animals. Misty is a high energy girl looking for a new owner that loves to go for walks and stay active. If you have any questions on Misty 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.
