Pet of The Week

This week from the Connecticut Humane Society’s Waterford Branch we have Oscar!!  Oscar is a 10 year old short haired cat.  He is a neutered male.  Oscar has been with us for over a month and came in because his previous owner was having health issues.  He is a very sweet man that would love a home to sit back and relax in.  He would do best in a quiet and peaceful home.  If you have any questions on Oscar 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!!
