dsc09751Every Fall, the Raymour & Flanigan furniture store on the Boston Post Road hosts a Pet Adoption/Awareness event.

James, the store manager said he likes seeing animals from local shelters going to forever homes after meeting families at the event.

Representatives from several businesses and organizations, including Pet Supplies Plus, set up tables inside the store and handed out samples, magnets and brochures. While outside, the truck from Northshore Animal League displayed several dogs and cats from local shelters that are available for adoption. (Two dogs were adopted today)

The EARS Rescue 2 Animal Ambulance was available for tours and also was accepting badly needed donations to cover its operating costs.

Shirley Nowinski, an EARS member and mother of founder Jon Nowinski said the ambulance has been extremely busy, but because it is a 100% volunteer organization that offers its ambulance services free of charge, donations are needed to keep it going strong.

Emergencies can happen at any time and you never know if or when your pet will need this service. Click HERE for information if you would like to make a donation.

Couple Falls In Love At Raymour & Flanigan

IMG_6312An Orange couple who’ve been married for more than 25 years and raised two children in town, fell in love again at Raymour & Flanigan on Saturday, Oct. 3.

Raymond and Beverly Hurteau weren’t there looking for a new love seat or comfy chair, rather, they were there to meet a “little man” with whom they could snuggle on their current living room set.

On hand for the meeting were members of the Emergency Animal Response Service (EARS), Employees of Pet Supplies Plus and volunteers from the New Haven Animal Shelter. The occasion was a pet adoption event that took place both inside and outside the furniture store.

Prior to the event, Beverly had found a little white dog on petfinders, and shared the photo with her husband in a text.

Ray was sitting at home with his daughter’s puppy, Bentley on his lap when the text came through. He liked what he saw and agreed to go meet him.

The family, including Bentley arrived at the adoption event and quickly sought out Tucker. It was love at first sight. He snuggled comfortably in the arms of each family member and happily played with Bentley.

IMG_6306The happily ever after hasn’t quite happened yet though. Every animal that is adopted out of the New Haven Shelter must first be spayed or neutered and prospective parents must submit adoption paperwork. From these applications Tucker’s forever home will be chosen.

As Beverly filled out the application, other people were stopping by and taking a look at Tucker. The pressure was on, but she kept a positive attitude. “If it’s meant to be, then we’ll get him,” she said as she completed the second page.

Orange Live will keep you posted on the outcome of this “love story.”

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.
