She was cherry picked from a tree in Brookfield, and now is at the Animal Welfare Society in New Milford.

Her name is Vanya, and she's proven that she's great at climbing trees, but is still working on the climb down. This may mean she would probably be better off inside, unless you want to give her a few pointers on getting down.

Vanya was a stray and got rescued when she got stuck in a tree in Brookfield by Animal Control Officer Pete. She's 2 years old, and is a brown/chocolate and white tabby. When she's not climbing trees, she loves to just hang out and be your buddy. She gets along well with all the cats at the shelter, and is all up to date on her vaccines, and has already been spayed.

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.
