Can you help to save a life?
 
I know I’m sending this to people who don’t generally hear from me. But I know we do have something in common---compassion. It is my hope that your compassion will move you to action.
 
I received an earlier email expressing these Guilford dogs were scheduled to be euthanized this past Wednesday. They belong to a homeless individual who has been given an ultimatum. Town policy has allowed their sheltering for 2 months. Yesterday they extended this deadline to August 17.
 
I understand they were never posted on the internet---nor on petfinder. I don’t know if Guilford provides any internet access for their ACO. This is disturbing for a facility that is only 3 years old. I could not find them on petfinder or pets911.
 
(However primitive we may feel our facilities are) most ACO’s do network to help animals in their custody. Most have a presence online. It is distressing while still surprising that today this affluent community apparently doesn’t encourage similar efforts.
 
Among you who I’ve contacted is there anyone who:
  • Can anyone respectfully talk to Guilford town officials---
       The Town Clerk’s # is (203-453-8001)
       & their police department # is (203-453-8061)
       ---into providing connection to the internet for their ACO’s?
 
  • Can anyone pass on a workable listing of rescue groups to the ACO’s there?
 
  • Is anyone willing---dare I ask---to adopt one of these dogs? The Guilford ACO’s are Debra Volpe & Kelly Pinette (203-453-8083). Hours of operation are Mon.-Wed. 6a.m.-9:30p.m. & Thurs.-Sun. 6a.m.-2p.m. Their facility is located on 400 Church Street (behind the police dept. to the right of the fire dept.).
 
  • Can you please take a moment to crosspost this request to all of the animal lovers you know?
 
Please folks! You may simply save a life.
