Milford Animal Control, 664 East Broadway, Milford, which serves the town of Orange, has Wildling a domestic long hair and Maine Coon mix cat available for adoption.

Wildling is about 4 years old. She was released to Milford Animal Control from her owner.

She would do well in an only pet household, she can be shy and temperamental when she doesn’t like a situation but also can be very sweet once she gets used to someone.

Wildling is a very pretty cat and likes to sit in her cat tree or cubby all day and comes out to greet the people she knows.

She is house trained and is spayed. She is up to date on all of her vaccinations.

If you live in a home with no children or other pets and are interested in adopting Wildling, contact the Milford Animal Control by calling 203-783-3279  or e-mail AnimalControl@Milfordct.gov.

The Woodbridge Regional Animal Control has available for adoption a breed of dog not seen very often.

Lad is an eight-month-old, male, smooth coat Collie in sable and white. He is friendly, attentive, swift and athletic with a lot of puppy behavior and energy.

Lad is good with adults, older children, friendly dogs but no cats. What the pup needs to thrive is active human companionship, gentle training and regular exercise in a physically fenced-in yard or other confined area.

The Collie’s loyalty, intelligence, and sterling character are the stuff of legend. Now all Lad needs is a chance.

Lad and other dogs and cats are available for adoption at the Woodbridge Regional Animal Control. The shelter is located at 135 Bradley Road and can be reached by phone at 203 389-5991.

Eight days ago, on Aug. 23, a male beagle was found in the Pez parking lot in Orange.

He was brought to the Milford Animal Control, attracted a lot of attention on our Facebook page, and has since been advertised by the shelter, yet he has not been claimed.

The poor fellow is said to have a nice personality, but he must be quite sad and lonely without a family.

The shelter is no place for a sweetheart like this who should be living out his days with some constant love and attention.

The Milford Animal Control is at 664 East Broadway in Milford. If you’re interested in him, stop by or call 203-783-3279. Fill out an application and give him a loving home.

The Raymour & Flanigan Furniture, 538 Boston Post Road will host a free “Adopt A Pet” event featuring food, entertainment, fun, and of course animals, on Saturday, Sept. 20, from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The team from the Emergency Animal Response Service (EARS) will set up a special information and demonstration area with the theme of “Pet Preparedness” to coincide with September being National Preparedness Month.
Look for the EARS area where visitors can get an up-close look at the Animal Rescue Truck, equipment used on emergency responses, and take part in an animal first aid demonstration. You can also meet the EARS K9 “Coyote” and learn about the job of Search & Rescue dogs as well as other types of working dogs that assist in times of disaster.
Handouts on emergency pet preparedness starting in your own home also will be provided, and finally the team will be offering on-site microchipping for dogs. The cost of the microchip is $20.00 per pet, which is a one-time only cost adopt couponand includes lifetime registration in the PetLink International database as well as the “EARS Connecticut Rescue Registry,” an exclusive database created by EARS to help assist owners in our state during emergencies and disasters.
For more information on the microchipping, or to reserve a microchip, contact EARS directly at info@earsct.org or visit www.EARSCT.org. 

EARS is a nonprofit, all-volunteer, organization, designed for rapid-response to emergencies affecting animals and their owners. The team is based in Bethany, Connecticut, but responds to incidents throughout the state. With many team members locally-based, EARS has been very active in the Orange community, hosting events, presentations, and workshops for pet owners, as well taking part in town activities like the Orange Expo. One aspect that makes EARS such a unique team is their experience and training with all types of animals as well as emergency response situations. Team members are required to complete certified courses through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) which provide the knowledge needed to conduct animal response work side-by-side with local emergency services. Additionally EARS team members are certified in special “Technical Animal Rescue” aspects, which includes work with large animals such as horses, as well as animals needing specialized response knowledge.
