Everything Dogs: Adoptables, Events, Fundraisers


Adopt-A-Dog Meet ‘N Greet at Pet Pantry Warehouse, 290 Railroad Ave., Greenwich on Saturday, February 8th, 2014, from 10:00a.m. to 2:00p.m.


. Adopt-A-Dog’s “Dog Of The Week” is Daisy. She is an 8 year old shepherd mix. Daisy is our current longest canine resident here at our sanctuary. She likes to be in the company of people, but not other animals. Daisy enjoys playing with stuffed toys. Her favorite activity is to go on a car ride!

….Look at this dachshund, Fanny!


Fanny. I met Fanny this week when trailing two Greenwich moms for an article on volunteering in dog rescue. Fanny is an absolute gem who checked out beautifully at the vet. She is being fostered in a family with children in Greenwich and walks beautifully on a leash. Contact Tina if you want to meet Fanny the dachshund – [email protected]

ImageRoscoe is such a gentleman. I met him at Mt. Vernon Shelter this week and he was calm, relaxed and friendly.

Here is their description of Roscoe: “Roscoe is a shepherd mix, about 5-6 years old.  Roscoe is a friendly and easy to walk dog but he is still playful. He would do great with a mature couple, or a family where he can be the only dog.  Watch Roscoe’s video on YouTube.”

Mikey is a Yorkshire Terrier being fostered by OPIN of Stamford — the non-profit affiliated with Stamford Animal Care & Control.

Here is their description of Mikey, who is not at the shelter, but rather being fostered. “I’m four years old and I was brought to the vet to be euthanized because I have diabetes and I am blind. My owner did not want to bother giving me insulin injections. OPIN (Outreach to Pets In Need) took me in and now I am boarding at a vet office waiting for a foster home or permanent home. My insulin has been regulated now, so the vet knows just how much I need each day. I love life and would love a new home even more.


Mikey the Yorkshire Terrier is being fostered by OPIN.
