10 Things The Coalition is Thankful For
10) Duncan the beagle, who had an opportunity to steal turkey with all the trimmings from
a newly found family table
9) Jake the Husky, now known as Luka, was adopted from the Humane Society after spending
months in both the Newington & Westport shelters
8) Lola and Cola, aka shy & shyer, who are in a comfy home with a lovely woman who started
as a foster but has become their adopter-another one bites the dust!
7) Magic the misunderstood, who is about to show us exactly what he’s made of by spending
the day at a posh dog resort
6) The generous people and their often comical four-legged friends, who we meet each Saturday
we visit the Farmington PetCo-yes that includes you Rudy!
5) The tireless work of the small rescue Organizations across the state, who are catching
the old, sick, abandoned pets who are falling through the cracks
4) Animals Control Officers who do their best for each homeless animal when they could do
the minimum required by state laws – you know who you are!
3) The completion of our 501(c)3 paperwork that puts us firmly on the road to
non-profit status-tedious work right people?
2) Volunteers across the state who dedicate time, resources, homes, money to the needy—both 2-legged
1) Our own pets, for gathering around us at the end of a tough day and reminding us why it is
all worth it…HAPPY HOLIDAYS
