Pet of The Week
This week from the Connecticut Humane Society’s Waterford Branch we have Lollie!!!  Lollie is an 8 year old Terrier mix.  She is a spayed female.  Lollie came to us from another rescue and has been with us for about 1 week.  She is good with children all ages and would consider sharing her new home with other animals.  She is a very sweet little lady that is very active and playful.  She loves attention and enjoys sitting in your lap.  If you have any questions on Lollie 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!!!
