Pet of The Week

This Week’s Pet of the Week from the Waterford branch of the CT Humane Society is “Bauer”.  “Bauer” is an approximately 7 year old Labrador mix breed.   “Bauer” is an active boy who loves playing with his other dog friends, here at the shelter.  He is also a big fan of playing fetch.   He, however, is not fond of cats.  He would prefer an adult home or home with teens.  If you are interested in meeting “Bauer”, please visit our shelter at 169 Old Colchester Road, Quaker Hill, CT.  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 “Bauer” or any of our pets, please call our office at 860-442-8583 ext. 5105.
