Shelter animals come in all shapes and sizes and all ages. Today we meet sisters, our Pets of the Week, and get some advice on what to look for when considering adoption.

First let's meet our Pets of the Week, Sasha and Melia:

SASHA & MELIA are the sweetest Dachshund sisters that you could meet. They are about seven years old and full of fun. They love to be out playing together or going for walks. Melia is on a special diet for her kidneys and takes a daily pill for her liver. These happy, loving and playful little girls were left one morning on the door steps of the Animal Welfare Society, and are now looking for one forever home between them.

For more information on Sasha & Melia, and all the other adoptable Dogs and Cats, call the Animal Welfare Society at (860) 354-1350 or visit them on Dodd Road in New Milford.

They’re open Tuesday from 11 AM to 7 PM, and Wednesday through Saturday from 11 AM to 2 PM.


Listen to Mr. Morning weekdays from 6:00-10AM on 105.5 FM, online at or by downloading the radioPup app for your mobile devices.
