It's another sad story for this week's Pet of the Week. When his owners moved, they left him behind, now he's just waiting for you to give him his new forever home.

His name is Josh Lyman, just like the character from the hit show 'The West Wind'. He's about a year and a half old, and a tabby, domestic short hair mix.

Josh Lyman is a real sweet kitty, he's very friendly, good with other dogs and cats, good with kids, and he's ready to go to a good new home. He's had all his vaccines, and has already been nurtured, so if you're looking for a new forever friend, Josh Lyman may be the one for you.

Also happening this Saturday at the Animal Welfare Society, they are having their final AWS Thrift Shop of 2020. From 10 AM until 1 PM, you can stop by for big savings and drastically reduced prices on new and gently used pet supplies, beds, grooming tools, collars, harnesses, leashes and lots more. Just remember to wear your mask, and social distance.

Now, because of the COVID-19 restrictions, if you're interested in adopting one of the featured pets, any dog or cat at the shelter, you must first fill out an application on their website at aws-shelter.org. Once your application is approved, you can call them at 860-354-1350 and schedule your one-on-one limited contact meeting.

The shelter is always in need of items to help keep the animals safe and clean. Right now, they are looking for bleach, paper towels and dry cat food.

If you can contribute, you can drop off the items at the shelter at 8 Dodd Road in New Milford. Just let them know you're going to drop something off, and you can do it with no contact by just leaving it in front of their building. You can also check the Animal Welfare website for their Amazon wish list, and have the items delivered right to the shelter.
