Saturday, May 3 is an exotic pet day and a general open house at Greenwich Animal Control.
The shelter is not bursting with desperate dogs and cats. That said, there are about a half dozen dogs and a half dozen cats in the shelter currently.
Greenwich Free Press paid a visit to animal control last week and met the dogs and cats. While there, this editor had the chance to witness a local family bring their 14 year old dog in to meet a cat with an eye to bringing her home. (Hint: it works out well and the story is in the works).
Right in the midst of bustling North Street School and the busy north-south corridor that connects central Greenwich to the Merritt Parkway, animal control is hidden in plain sight.
And though most Greenwich residents are simply not interested in adopting pit bull mixes or pit bulls, eventually each is given a chance.
Take for instance Carly. Her case of “Happy Tail” notwithstanding, she is a bundle of love.
When kennel manager Bill Peterson let Carly run toward the end of her leash toward this editor, it took a split second to know the only risk was of being showered in kisses. Smitten.
Proceeding inside the shelter, Ruby, Merritt, Ginger and Dodger were ready to say hello.
The open house runs from 12:00 noon to 2:00pm. If you haven’t seen the facility, it is a state-of-the-art, located next door to North Street School at 393 North Street in Greenwich.
