Hey there! I'm Cecile. Growing up I watched my older sisters bring home strays and care for them. I learned from them how to tell if a dog is happy, scared, or in pain. I learned how to calm an anxious dog with a soft voice and that dogs that are more vocal, change their posture, or are not so interested in food, may be in pain or sick. I also learned how much fun it is to play with a dog. I am enrolled in the Veterinary Assistant Program at Middlesex Community College to learn more about the animals I love. I will receive my certificate February 14, 2018.

Dog Boarding in Hamden

Animal lovers throughout Hamden and the surrounding areas encapsulate the meaning of "dog lover" with the way they dedicate their time and love to animals in need. There are a number of shelters in the area that are doing big things for dogs of all sizes. Committed volunteers give their time in order to ensure proper care of the displaced dogs of Connecticut. Two shelters in particular that are in and near Hamden are Where the Love is Animal Rescue and The Animal Haven. 

Where the Love is Animal Rescue, located right in Hamden, is an institution that has been serving the animals of Hamden and the surrounding community since 2011. They have saved over 500 cats and dogs by taking them in and placing them in secure and safe fur-ever homes. The group places their animals in loving foster homes in order to ensure they receive the love of a normal household life. 

Doing work that makes a definitive impact, The Animal Haven is making steps forward for the wellbeing of dogs all over. This North Haven animal shelter goes to great lengths to ensure their animals are well cared for. They are thoughtful when considering the placement of their animals in permanent homes. Until these sweet cats and dogs find their true home, they are loved greatly by the volunteers and staff of the non-profit.
