A frisky, female Labrador mix, "Coco," was the latest resident of Fairfield's animal shelter to be featured at the Board of Selectmen meeting.
"Coco is our fourth," said Selectman Sherri Steeneck, who initiated "Wednesday's Pet" while serving as acting first selectman. "The other three have all been adopted."
Coco is about 9 months old and "she's still in that puppy stage," Animal Control Officer William McDonough told the selectmen Wednesday. "She was found in the Walgreen's parking lot."
Steeneck said there's still a full house at the town's animal shelter and urged residents to visit the shelter at 211 One Rod Highway and consider adopting a dog or cat.
The adoption fee is $50 if the animal is not spayed or neutered, but that includes a voucher toward the cost of spaying or neutering and two vaccinations. Spayed or neutered pets can be adopted for a $5 fee.
