this is what a sanctuary truely IS

Group To Open Sanctuary For Adoptable Pets
By SARAH MOROCCO Courant Staff Writer April 10 2006

Some of the state's most mistreated pets will soon be living among quaint cottages, plush fields and winding trails.The Newington-based Connecticut Humane Society is celebrating its 125th anniversary year with plans to open the first stage of a 62-acre sanctuary for adoptable pets this spring on Old Colchester Road in Waterford.The sanctuary will include long-term group living for dogs and cats in cottages that simulate a real-life home atmosphere, as well as an animal veterinary clinic, a fenced dog park, wooded trails and a Humane Society adoption center."The sanctuary will be like a retirement home for animals," said Jody Angell, public relations director for the CT Humane Society.The sanctuary will provide the animals with a setting that eliminates the stress of a kennel, as well as offer premier medical care to injured or ill animals.Sanctuaries are growing in popularity across the country as pet owners look for alternatives to traditional shelters."Animals give so much and ask for so little," said Elaine Bosler, owner and creator of Bosler Humane Society Inc. in Baldwinville, Mass., the largest sanctuary for adoptable pets in New England. Bosler said the sanctuary atmosphere is especially beneficial to abused animals, and it emphasizes the importance of spaying and neutering the animals before adoption.The CT Humane Society plans to open a clinic at the Waterford site that will offer low-cost veterinary care, vaccinations and spaying and neutering services. .........

yeah it is amazing. there really ARE little 'cottages' on the grounds. it's cool. if it wasn't so far away (well anything over 20 minutes is far to me) i'd be there ALL the time volunteering.

there are animals here that i can help too though.
