a new no kill animal shelter in bloomfield!

 i drive through bloomfield EVERY day (well every work day) and i had NO idea. this is most wonderful!
it would be even MORE wonderful if people had their pets spayed and neutered.

 it would be even MORE wonderful if people who can't or don't want to care for animals DON'T ADOPT ONE TO BEGIN WITH

Foundation Readies $5 Million No-Kill Animal Rescue Center

The Hartford Courant

Life began to turn around for Lolly on a hot day this past summer.

Abandoned in a
Waterbury garage with three other starving dogs, Lolly, a Rottweiler-shepherd mix, got a second chance when the landlord, unable to locate the evicted tenants, placed a call to The Simon Foundation.

"I had my Subaru and one crate," recalled Stephanie Ferguson, the foundation's indefatigable executive director. "We scrounged them up and in under four minutes we had four Rottweilers in my Subaru.".....

York and Loureiro adopted a rottweiler-shepherd mix named Lolly from the shelter two months ago and come back to volunteer in their spare time. (Bettina Hansen, Hartford Courant / November 14, 2010)
