Pet of The Week
This week’s Pet of the Week from the Waterford branch of the CT Humane Society is “Artie”. “Artie” is a domestic short haired cat, approximately 5 years old. He arrived at the shelter as a stray. This sweet, gentle guy is a little shy at first, but will warm up quickly. “Artie” may be willing to share his home with other pets and is looking for an owner dedicated to play time to help him lose a couple pounds. If you are interested in meeting “Artie”, please visit our shelter at 169 Old Colchester Road, Quaker Hill, CT. To see all of our adoptable pets looking for homes, please go to our website, www.cthumane.org. If you have questions about “Artie” or any of our other pets looking for new homes, please call our office at 860-442-8583 ext. 5105
