Pet of The Week
This week’s Pet of the Week from the Waterford branch of the CT Humane Society is “Jimmy”. “Jimmy” is an approximately 7month old Pointer mix breed. This active boy is looking for an active adult home where he can continue to work on his manners. He is a great dog who is a quick learner with a lot of potential. He may be willing to share his home with another dog but would prefer a cat free home. If you are interested in meeting “Jimmy”, please visit our shelter at 169 Old Colchester Road, Quaker Hill, CT. To see a listing of all of our adoptable pets, please go to our website, www.cthumane.org. If you have any questions about “Jimmy” or any of our other pets, please call our office at 860-442-8583 ext. 5105.

The program allows young people to sample military life with no obligation to join any branch of the armed forces. Through organization and cooperation with the Navy, Coast Guard, and Marine Corps the program encourages and aids American youth to develop an interest and skill in basic seamanship and in its naval adaptations, to train them in seagoing skills, and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance and kindred virtues" in a drug-, gang- and alcohol free lifestyle. We offer a variety of spring, summer and winter camp opportunities in additional to local unit meetings. These camps are located throughout the United States for a very reasonable price.
