Jinger Has a New Home

Jinger. Westport Animal Control

Jinger has been adopted! 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.

Iggy and Remy have found homes Image
Iggy (the white-faced pup) and Remy (the brindle girl) are 3-month-old female pit-lab mix pups have been adopted.  They are very loving and affectionate and greatly enjoy meeting new people and other dogs.  When not eating or napping, they enjoy chasing a tennis ball, riding in a car and exploring the world.  They are spayed and up-to-date on their vet care.  They will be adopted individually and not as a duo.  For additional information about Iggy and Remy, please send an email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call (203)557-0361.  To complete an adoption application, please visit, click on “Adopt” and complete the online application.  Their adoption fee is $150.  Each adoption comes with a certificate for a complimentary one-hour training session with WASA’s dog trainer, Susie Valentine Collins of Sitting Pretty.

Summer Has A Home

Summer. Westport Animal Control

Summer has been adopted.  She is rebounding nicely and enjoying her new-found freedom.  She knows her basic commands and was housebroken very quickly.  She has displayed no toy or food aggression and loves to chase the tennis ball.  She is becoming socialized in regard to meeting new people but still takes a few minutes to warm up to people.  However, she quickly accepts you into her circle and wants to follow you everywhere. 

Boomer Has Found A Family

Boomer. Westport Animal Control

Boomer the 2-year-old beagle has been adopted He’s a sweet little fellow that is rebounding nicely after being abandoned in a parking lot in Westport.  He is affectionate and is enjoying all the attention he is receiving from staff and volunteers.  While you can’t see it in the photo, Boomer has a condition called micro-ophthalmia of his left eye diagnosed at his recent trip to Schulhof Animal Hospital in Westport.  He may or may not have any eye tissue on his left side but it will be “cleaned out” and surgically sealed at the time of his neutering surgery which will be funded by Westport Animal Shelter Advocates (WASA).  Boomer does appear to get along well with other dogs.  Clearly this young fellow hasn’t had the best start in life but he is ready for a new, loving and forever home – and we’re ready to help him find it!

Milo and Molly Have been adopted

Milo & Molly
Milo and Molly were adopted!  While they are very bonded with each other (and need to be adopted together) they bond very nicely – and quickly – with those that show them attention.  They are very affectionate and lovable.  Both walk nicely on their leashes and are housebroken.  We hope they find their forever home – one filled with comfy pillows and beds for lounging – very soon.  Both are spayed/neutered and up to date on their vet care
