This week we've got a Coonhound Beagle mix who's just waiting for her new forever home.

Her name is Marigold, and as you can see by the picture, she's a mix you don't see all that often, a Coonhound and Beagle mix.

Here's a little backstory about Marigold. She's a one year old very unique looking dog, she's still just a puppy and is a sweetheart. She was picked up as a stray at one of those high kill shelters in the south, but now has made her way north to the Animal Welfare Society. Marigold is an active, adventurous, 45 pound spayed female Coonhound. She may need some obedience training, as most young dogs do, along with some leash work since she's been on her own since she was born.. She does well with people and other dogs, but seems frightened of cats at this time. She'd probably do best in a structured home with no young children.

Marigold is up to date on all her vaccines, and is just waiting patiently for the right person to come along and give her a new forever home.

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.
