This male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was found in the vicinity of Orange Center Road and Old Tavern Road around 7 a.m. on Wednesday, June 14.

He was wearing a red collar with an electric fence monitor. No other identification.

The Good Samaritan called the Milford/Orange Animal Control and he was taken into their possession.

The good news is that he has since been reunited with his owner.

Remember, the Independence Day holiday is coming and most pets run away around that time than any other time of year because they are frightened by the loud firecrackers and fireworks that people set off everywhere.

Please prepare ahead of time and find something that will help keep your pet calm and comfortable during the next few weeks.

golden pupThe female Golden Retriever that Orange Live posted last night spent the evening at Chez Milford-Orange Animal Control in Milford and today will be reunited with her owner.

We don’t know the pup’s name, but, she is 6 months old and absolutely beautiful.

Here’s hoping she and her family have a lovely holiday.

And puppy, here’s a message from my dog, Mi Sun:  “The streets of Orange are no place for a girl to go out exploring alone. Stay with your mommy.”

Milford-Orange Animal Control is looking to return him to his owner.

Milford-Orange Animal Control is looking to return him to his owner.

Around 10 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27, a Trumbull man was returning home from work when he came upon a large dog lying in the middle of Old Grassy Hill Road near Ridge Road (Wright’s Pond area)

He stopped his car and rushed to the dog’s side, moments later, an Orange resident on his way to work also stopped and helped get the dog out of the street.

They notified the Orange Police, who then called the Milford-Orange Animal Control in Milford, which took custody of the dog.

The Orange resident, whose cell phone photo Orange Live posted that evening, said the dog was “really nice and friendly, but appeared to have been hit by a car.”

When Orange Live followed up with Lead Animal Control Officer Rick George, he verified that the dog, a bullmastiff, had indeed been hit by a car and suffered a spinal injury. He was treated by a veterinarian and is now on the mend.

ACO George said he is looking for the owner of the dog.

He appears to have been well taken care of and healthy before the accident and wants to return him to his rightful owner.

“I’m not looking to adopt him out right now,” George said. “He should be returned to his owner. He isn’t microchipped and didn’t have any other ID, so it may take some time.”

The Milford-Orange Animal Control is at 664 E Broadway,  Milford. If you know this dog, call 203-783-3279.

FYI: The main thing that everyone needs to know is that the dog is in a safe, warm place and is receiving the care and attention he needs until his owner can be located.

Opinion: Do You Know Which Animal Shelter Really Works With Orange?

DSC00203Several years ago, the town of Orange broke away from the District Animal Control in Woodbridge and signed an agreement to join up with the Milford Animal Control, 664 East Broadway, Milford.

Animal Control Officer Rick George, and his two assistant ACOs Scott Ellingson and Christopher Connors all were sworn in during a brief ceremony in Orange.

So why then, in the past month have two “local” news agencies published things about the DAC? One even went as far as to say that DAC serves Bethany, Derby, Woodbridge and Orange. This hasn’t been the case for a long time and can confuse residents who weren’t aware of the true situation for some reason.

Orange Live has posted Photos with Santa, Rabies Clinics and other events from the Milford-Orange Animal Control.

As an Orange resident, if you have an animal problem that you would need to report to the Animal Control you would call Milford at 203-783-3279. The staff there is friendly and helpful.

Adoptable Pets

Currently the Shelter has one adoptable dog, “Sasha” a  2 year-old very sweet spayed female Pitbull.
Sasha can be excitable in the kennel environment, but she loves going for walks in the Shelter neighborhood.
She doesn’t care for other animals, but the folks at the shelter believe she will be faithful to a strong, understanding master in the right environment.

She loves giving kisses.

Sliders

The shelter also has a couple of red-eared slider turtles up for adoption. All they need are a big tank with rocks and water, food, and the right owner who will promise NOT to release them in to the nearest pond.

About the species: The Red-eared Slider is the most common type of water turtle kept as pets. As with other turtles, tortoises, and box turtles, individuals that survive their first year or two can be expected to live generally around 30 years.

Red-eared sliders can be quite aggressive—especially when food is involved. Behavior is usually noted to become this way when fed live food. If being kept as a pet, care must be taken to prevent injury or even death of its smaller tankmates.  — from wikipedia

Birds

The Shelter also has Cockatiels and parakeets to adopt, including my former bird, Kramer, which I had to surrender because my home was much too cold for him in the winter.

He’s a funny fellow who will whistle the tune “Over There,” sometimes from start to finish.

I never could get him to talk, except an occasional “Hi.” when I came home.

Hours:
Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
