2 year old. Neutered Male. Beagle mix.
I am a lively, pretty dog who loves a good squeaky toy. I was a stray from Wallingford and I was brought here on Sept. 3. The staff is amazed that no one has claimed me back because of my easy going ways surely someone is missing me. I know how to Sit but one thing I need work on is to learn not to jump so much. I get excited and tend to be a bit rough.
6 year old. Neutered Male. Beagle.
I’m a dignified fella who is surprised to be back here. . . you see, I was adopted from RCHS about 5 years ago. Even though I was sad to leave my family, I saw some of the same faces working here, which made me happy. I am looking for someone who needs a walking companion being a Beagle I should be on a leash or securely confined and I could stand to lose a few pounds. If you are looking to put a little Spark in your life, please ask the staff about me.
4 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Gray & White.
I am one happy girl. I enjoy life and try to live it to the fullest. I came in with my friend Ringo and we are pretty bonded to each other. How neat it would be to get a new home with him? We came in together when our previous owner lost her job and couldn’t take care of us any longer.
1 year old. Spayed Female. Domestic Short Hair Torbie.
I am a petite little stray that came in July 3 from Rutland. I enjoy being up on a high perch so I can watch everything that is going on. I have some beautiful markings to distinguish myself from the other kitties in the room. If you want to come in and meet me remember to look up when you enter my cat room - that’s where you will see me.
