Pet cause: Selectmen promote adoption of abandoned Boxer
Updated 12:40 pm, Sunday, July 24, 2011
A 2-year-old, pure-bred Boxer, abandoned and tied to a tree outside the Fairfield Animal Control Shelter along with one of her brothers, is available for adoption.
Delylah was the featured as "Wednesday's Pet" at last week's Board of Selectmen meeting.
According to Animal Control Officer Bill McDonagh, Delylah and her brother both were wearing collars that had their names and birthdates.
Two other male Boxers, believed to part of the same litter, were also recently found tied to other trees in town. "We believe it was the same person," who abandoned all four dogs, McDonagh said.
"She's a sweet little dog, energetic," he said -- a steal for the $50 adoption fee. "You don't usually get purebreds down at the shelter and we've got four of them."
The Fairfield Animal Control Shelter is located at 211 One Rod Highway.
