Say Hello to Bat


Meet Bat. Westport Animal Control

Bat is a 6 to 8-year-old chihuahua mix rescued from a CT animal control facility that is now being fostered by a WASA volunteer.  Life had not been good to this little guy when he was kicked to the curb.  He was very thin, flea-infested and dehydrated, but very forgiving and his spirit not broken.  He is enjoying the good life now with good food, exercise, play time with other dogs. He has turned into one handsome little pup.  He loves walks and chasing the tennis ball (very funny), he is constantly presenting his foster with photo opportunities because of his comical nature.  Bat would do best in an adult home or a home with older children that will give him space until he is comfortable.  He is good with other dogs if they are not in his face constantly.  Bat is neutered, up to date on his vet care and just had his teeth cleaned.  For additional information about Bat, please send an email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call 203-557-0361.  To complete an application, please visit and click on Adopt to bring up the online application.

Jinger Needs a New Home


Jinger. Westport Animal Control

Jinger is a 3-year-old Yorkie that came to the WASA as an owner surrender because of a landlord enforcing a no pet policy.  She is friendly and likes to meet new people but is not a dog that constantly wants to be in your lap.  Jinger had very little contact with other dogs prior to her foster life but is doing well with her new canine buddies after getting over her initial fear.  She does appear to be housebroken and is used to going on walks to do “her business” rather than in a fenced-in yard.  She would do best in an adult home or a home with older children that are willing to give her space until she becomes comfortable in her new home.  For additional information about Jinger, please send an email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call 203-557-0361.  To complete an application, please visit and click on Adopt to bring up the online application.

Both suspects were later taken into custody in a wooded area near the Merritt Parkway just over the Norwalk line, police said. Officers found cash in their possession and items in their car linking them to the robbery.

One person in the Merritt crash, which involved at least two other vehicles, suffered minor injuries, police said tonight in a second news release on the incident. The suspect vehicle also hit a guard rail.

The robbery occurred at about 9:40 a.m. at 1111 Post Road East, and police soon after spotted the suspect vehicle on Post Road East at Compo Road.  No weapon was shown at the bank, police said.

Advocates to Candidates: Fund CT Transportation Needs

By Keith M. Phaneuf

Transportation advocates today challenged Connecticut gubernatorial candidates to support increased funding to overhaul the state’s aging infrastructure – even if it likely means tax increases or tolls.

The coalition of nearly three dozen—including construction trades and businesses, seven chambers of commerce, the Connecticut Conference of Municipalities, and numerous regional planning agencies -– also challenged the candidates to participate this fall in a debate on transportation issues.

“Connecticut’s next governor has two choices: provide safe and efficient transportation, or allow our infrastructure to crumble,” Don Shubert, president of the Connecticut Construction Industries Association, said during a late morning press conference at Union Station in Hartford.

“Maintaining the aging system of roads, bridges and rail lines in a state of good repair is critical for the safety and reliability of the system that the vast majority of the traveling public are using every day.”
