2013 Annual Report
One of my favorite things to do is to spend an afternoon at one of our three adoption centers, soaking in all the happiness as animals of every size, shape and age find the thing they all dream of: a home of their own with someone to love. N urturing the amazing human-animal bond is the heart and soul of the Connecticut Humane Society's work. Ellen Sharon, President

The other day I watched a story about a little kitten that had suffered two broken front legs. People donated to the animal control department so the kitten's legs could be repaired. It was a feel good story because this little fur ball was going to be just fine. It was also wonderful because people wanted to help this animal. Read more...
