Dogs Saved from Being Put Down

Hartford Animal Control places enough dogs to ease overcrowding at shelter (Published Friday, March 25, 2016)

Animal lovers have come together to save dogs that were in danger of being euthanized if they did not find homes by Saturday because the Hartford Animal Shelter was completely full.

On Thursday, animal control officer Sherry Degenova said the shelter was completely full and they were desperate to find homes for two dozen dogs.

After the story aired, there was amazing response from people who saw it and the shelter placed seven or eight dogs on Thursday night and 10 more dogs have been spoken for.

Degenova said employees are usually off on Good Friday, but would be there today to help "save a life."
Degenova said on Friday that the shelter will be able to take new strays and no dog has to be euthanized, which would be animal control's worst nightmare.

Adopters can look the dogs over online at Hartford Animal Shelter's Facebook page then make an appointment at the shelter.

More than 53,000 pets were adopted through the 2016 Clear the Shelters campaign, a nationwide push to place deserving animals in forever homes. Join the conversation on social media using #ClearTheShelters.
