Sal, Rest in Peace

Adopt a Senior Dog Stamford Connecticut SalIn Loving Memory

We lost Sal on Wed. 8/6.   Sal was a senior shelter dog dumped on the streets of Stamford. OPIN took him into our care so he would not have to spend time at the shelter.  Sal had a multitude of ailments and he fought a six-month battle trying to kick those illnesses. We are most grateful to Sal's foster dad and for the opportunity to allow Sal to enjoy his last six months of life being loved by a human.  

Great Afternoon at Bar Q

A big thank you to everyone who joined us last Saturday at Bar Q Stamford for "Paw Prints and Drinks”.  The weather cooperated beautifully, providing a sunny patio to meet some of our adoptables and explain the plight of homeless pets and their needs, within our community and the Stamford shelter. The event raised $2,020 and we could not have done it without the generosity and donations from PetSmart, Conair, Chelsea Piers and Bar Q.

Audrey & Riley were the winners of a big gift basket from PetSmart.  The basket was filled with dog toys, blankets , and other treats - many of which Riley donated back to the dogs at the shelter. Two OPIN adoptables joined us for the day. Volunteers Jim and Phyllis handled Cookie (a small social butterfly) and Lucy (a laid back girl).  Both dogs are currently available for adoption.
