A ‘Pet Project’ to help police in Connecticut

The pet project

Pets are a big part of our lives, and they deserve to be treated like family. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case for homeless pets. There are many people who would love to adopt a rescue dog or cat but don’t know how or where to start. This can make it difficult for you as an owner because there aren’t many options available when it comes time for finding a new home for your pet—or even if there even is such thing as “finding” one! In order to help address this issue we’ve created an initiative called Pet Project Connecticut (PPCT). Our goal is twofold: firstly we want everyone who loves dogs and cats in Connecticut who needs help finding homes with forever families; secondly we want local law enforcement agencies throughout our state to become better equipped at finding homes for these animals so they can continue serving their communities while being loved by someone else!

Connecticut: Bloomfield Dog Star Rescue, a pet adoption agency in Bloomfield on Tobey Road, has a “pet project” they think will benefit both Connecticut’s first responders and pets looking for a forever home.

In the wake of the horrible deaths of two Bristol police officers, Dog Star has decided to try to heal the police community by giving free rescue dog adoptions to any Connecticut police officer who wants one.

According to Dan McCabe, the president of Dog Star Rescue, “it’s free, it’s a no-cost ‘thank you for your service’ for police officers in Connecticut.” 
The normal price for a dog adoption from Dog Star is $500. 
The application can be completed by a police officer, and McCabe continued, “We would be pleased to connect them with their forever dog and forever family.”

Dog Star Rescue

Dog Star Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization that saves dogs from high kill shelters and finds them loving, forever homes. Dog Star Rescue was founded in 2011 by a group of animal lovers who wanted to help animals and provide a safe environment for them to live. Our goal is not only to find the perfect home for each individual dog we take in but also the best possible end result: an adoption into loving guardianship with no further euthanasia required!

We work closely with county shelters across Connecticut so that together we can save as many lives as possible before they’re euthanized at our local shelter or taken off property after being deemed unadoptable due to illness or injury sustained during transport (which happens more often than you might think). We also provide training classes on how owners can better care for their pets’ health needs while providing nutritional enrichment programs through donations from local businesses such as Whole Foods Market and Petco stores.”

The Connecticut Humane Society

The Connecticut Humane Society is a non-profit organization that provides shelter, care and adoption services for homeless animals in Connecticut. Founded in 1844, the Humane Society of the United States is the country’s largest animal welfare organization.

The Humane Society has partnered with police departments across the state since 2016 on “Pet Project,” which provides free veterinary care to injured or sick animals brought into law enforcement stations or veterinary hospitals. The program also helps train officers so they can better handle situations involving pets during arrests or during other interactions with citizens who have lost their furry friends

Dog Star Rescue adoption for officers

Dog Star is getting a big boost from the Cheshire-based Hometown Foundation and other donors so that police officers can adopt pets for free.

The relationship manager at the Hometown Foundation, Jamie Hughes, told the officers that they could get their dog at Pup Star Rescue.

She continued, “This tragedy has occurred, but a lovely response has resulted. The community has come together, and people are offering their support.”

Fallen Bristol Police Officers, Sgt. Alex Hamzy and Lt. Dustin Demonte, To Be

On Sunday, October 30, the Hometown Foundation and Dog Star Rescue will join the Bozzuto’s team at the Farmington Polo Club for the “Back the Blue Motorcycle Ride and Car Cruise.” The purpose of the event is to collect money for the families of Sgt. Alex Hamzy and Lt. Dustin Demonte, the two slain Bristol police officers, as well as Officer Alex Iurato, who survived the gunman’s assault.

It costs $25 per attendee, and all funds will help the Bristol Police Department through the Hometown Foundation, according to Hughes.

Dog Star will also help people find homes for their dogs at the Back the Blue event.

In addition, McCabe said, “This is just a tremendous opportunity to give back to the community and to the officers that help us every day in our state.”

The Bristol Animal Shelter

The Bristol Animal Shelter is a municipal animal shelter in Bristol, Connecticut. The shelter is run by the town’s Fire Department and is open to all residents of the Town of Bristol. It is a no-kill shelter meaning that it does not euthanize animals from its facility if they cannot be adopted out within six months of being brought in as strays or owner surrenders.

The Bristol Animal Shelter has partnered with Dog Star Rescue (DSR), an organization dedicated to rescuing dogs from overcrowded shelters and returning them back into their communities where they belong.

The Connecticut State Police

K-9 Unit

The Connecticut State Police is the largest law enforcement agency in the state. It has a special K-9 unit, which is responsible for the safety of Governor Malloy and other high-ranking officials. The State Police also investigates crimes involving public safety as well as traffic violations like speeding or reckless driving.

In addition to their duties as an investigative body, they have become involved with other projects that help improve safety on our streets and highways such as sobriety checkpoints (where drivers must prove they aren’t drunk before they can drive) or driver’s license reissue programs where people are encouraged to get new licenses if theirs expired over 60 days ago!

Local law enforcement agencies throughout the state

If you are a police department in Connecticut and would like to get involved, please contact Dog Star Rescue. They can help you with getting your officers trained on search and rescue techniques, as well as educating them about how important it is for them to be able to deal with dogs in stressful situations.
