On Saturday October 26th, 2019 there was a pet adoption event taking place in Ellington, CT. This is the 6th annual adoption event sponsored by Superior Energy in Vernon, CT. The event had 5 animals up for adoption and as of Saturday all the animals were either adopted or people were being interviewed to see if they are a good candidate for taking the animal. One of the volunteers that was there walking around with the dogs being up for adoption was Keith. He has been a volunteer for 9 years, he was walking one of the dogs named Tara, she’s a boxer mix and 9 years old. She has an interview pending her adoption.
There was food, drink, music and a donation center, where people can bring in blankets, towels, and other items that the Human Society needs to give to pets in need. They also had a couple of booths along with the donation center was the humane society booth. They had a volunteer there, Kristen Devean, who has been volunteering since July. She was manning a booth at the event that had information about the humane society and other information about volunteering. It was a packed event with lots of people a nice day to come out and support the Humane Society and help animals in need.
