WHAT: The Connecticut Humane Society is hosting a “We’re Expecting! Puppy and Kitten Shower” on Saturday, May 10th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM in Newington. The goal of the event is to collect supplies and raise funds and awareness about the life-saving work of the Maternity Department. Each year, the CHS takes in hundreds of puppies and kittens. Some are orphans, and rely on staff or foster volunteers to bottle feed them. Others are underweight, malnourished, or suffering from health problems. Both the maternity department and foster program are dedicated to providing these pets with the necessary care, treatment, and love they need, whether that commitment is for two days or two months. In order to continue this life-saving work, the CHS relies on the compassion of donors and volunteers.
WHERE: The Connecticut Humane Society - 701 Russell Road, Newington CT
WHEN: Saturday, May 10th - 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
EVENT ACTIVITES: CHS-themed baby shower games and raffles, bake sale, bottle-feeding demonstrations, behind-the-scenes tours of the Maternity & Medical Departments, and a “Pet a Puppy” picture booth.
