Jake was found this morning.

Jake was found this morning.

Do you know Jake?

This little Bichon was found by a teacher on Ridge Road in Orange this morning. He was terribly matted and thirsty.

Jake is identified by a tag attached to his peace/love rescue collar (with peace signs, dog paws and hearts) and a phone number.

Unfortunately, the phone number – 203-624-1857 – has been disconnected and the owner cannot be reached.

Update: The little guy was cared for at Turkey Hill School where the teacher works, and then the Milford-Orange Animal Control picked him up around 10 a.m.

The animal control officer said they would clean Jake up, and he is there now. Call 203-783-3279 and help Jake get back home or to see him. If he is not claimed, he would be up for adoption after a certain amount of time.

We hope he gets a second chance at happiness.


Original story: Currently, at 9:15 a.m., Jake is in the teacher’s car in the Turkey Hill School parking lot with water and a blanket. But not for long, the Milford-Orange Animal Control will  be picking him up soon.

If you recognize Jake or the phone number, please e-mail Orange Live or call the school at 203-891-8040 (before 10 p.m.) or call Animal Control at 203-783-3279 and help Jake get back home.

Screen shot 2014-04-23 at 10.08.12 AMWith all the chaos that surrounded Peck Place School this year, Parents and administrators had to find inventive ways to make everything work as seamlessly as possible to minimize disruption to the students’ lives.
One annual event that everyone looks forward to is the 5k Road Race, but since the school was out of bounds, organizers had to find an alternative location to make it happen this year.
Jamie Beaudette went before the Board of Selectmen and asked the Park & Rec Commission if the school could use the High Plains Community Center as a starting point and use the certified Chilly Chili Run route for their fundraiser. It was approved without any problems and so, here is the information you need to take part in this great fundraising event.
