I have grown up around all kinds of animals especially dogs both big and small. I currently love and care for a sweet little chihuahua/doxen mix and hope to adopt a larger dog as well. I am very interested in using canine behavior and body language to understand how they feel so I provide the best care possible.

I have had dogs my entire life; I currently have 2 chocolate labs. I have been dog sitting for about 15 years around my neighborhood. My experience includes being a member of Kids for Paws, an organization that raised money to donate to animal shelters, military dogs, and guide dogs. I was also a volunteer at the SPCA while I was in college. I am great with everyone from high-energy puppies that love to play to older dogs who just love to snuggle.

Dog Boarding in Hartford

The SPCA of Connecticut is located at359 Spring Hill Road in nearby Monroe, Connecticut. They are open by appointment Monday through Friday and on the weekends from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. SPCA of Connecticut's mission is to help all unwanted, neglected, abused, homeless, sick and hungry pets of Greater Connecticut and across the country.  

A dedicated and caring team from the SCPA Connecticut sprung into action recently to aid those displaced pets of Hurricane Harvey in Texas.  They drove to Texas with truckloads of supplies and food for the displaced pets. When the flood waters began to rise, many heartbroken pet owners were forced to abandon their beloved pets. SPCA of Connecticut reunited some of those pets with their families and found loving homes for the rest of the pets in their care. SPCA of Connecticut is made up of a staff of animal loving, rescue advocates who work tirelessly toward giving every homeless, injured, sick, ageing, special-needs, anxious pet out there a second chance at a happily ever after. 

If you are looking to adopt a new furry friend, please check out their website or visit the shelter on the weekends. The staff is there to answer any and all questions you might have about the responsibilities, costs, etc. of being a pet parent. If you are unable to adopt, why not give of your time?  Just a few spare hours of your time can make a world of difference to the staff and animals at this facility. Contact the facility to let them know when you can come in and they will be most grateful.  

If you are unable to volunteer, perhaps you would consider making a monetary contribution to fund their many rescue missions, like that of Hurricane Harvey. These donations go towards medical expenses for pets in disaster areas, gas costs, food costs, and the like. If you are unable to give financial support, the SCPA of Connecticut has a standing wish list of items they are always in need of such as cleaning supplies like paper towels, bleach, and laundry detergent. 

The SPCA of Connecticut does so much good for the community and their pets. Won't you please consider thanking them for their hard work by adopting, volunteering, fostering or donating your time, funds or supplies?
