Pet of The Week

This week’s Pet of the Week from the Waterford branch of the CT Humane Society is “Troy”.  “Troy” is an approximately 1 year old, domestic short haired cat.  This handsome guy is looking for love and to be loved.  He will meow at you for treats and one of his favorite activities is playing with a wand toy.  He may be willing to share his home with another feline friend.  If you are interested in meeting “Troy”, please visit our shelter at 169 Old Colchester Road, Quaker Hill, CT.  If you would like to see all of our adoptable pets looking for new homes, please go to our website, www.cthumane.org.  If you have any questions about “Troy” or any of our other adoptable pets, please contact our office at 860-442-8583 ext. 5105
