A lot of people are always on the look out for a pit bull or a pit mix. Well, today's your lucky day because we have Kyra -- our latest Pet of the Week.

Here's your chance to give Kyra, who's a 2 or 3-year-old, 40 pound little pitty mix, a new forever home.

Kyra came to the Animal Welfare Society from a high kill shelter in the south. She would be perfect in a home by herself, but would be alright with another dog, preferably a male dog, but absolutely no cats. She is a little shy, but she does warm up fairly quickly.

Pit Bulls were once called the nanny dogs for their ability to take care of other dogs and children as well.

Kyra is all up to date on her vaccines and has already been spayed, so why not give the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford a call and inquire about Kyra?

Now because of the COVID-19 restrictions, if you're interested in adopting one of the featured pets, or any dog or cat at the shelter, first fill out an application on their site at aws-shelter.org. Then, 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 still looking for some items that they need 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, then 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 the Amazon wish list, and have the items delivered right to the shelter.
