Large Influx at Stamford Animal Control Makes Finding Homes a Priority

With more animals coming in than adopters are taking out, cage space is becoming an issue.

Stamford Animal Control is currently dealing with a large influx of animals following a couple of instances netting several animals at once.

4 Bichon dogs recovered from the home of Susan Beran, who apparently , are still in need of a home. The dogs were recovered from the residence authorities believe a few days after the incident had occurred. 

Outreach to Pets in Need is currently taking care of the medical costs for the dogs.

  • Jenny, 11, had to have emergency surgery for bladder stones. She is a spayed female. 
  • Skipper, almost 10, is a neutered male.
  • Kiwi, 13, is a neutered male
  • Cassidy, almost 8, is also a neutered male.

Once the dogs medical needs have been met, they will be put up for adoption.

A second incident from the previous week netted 10 cats from one home where the animals were not being cared for.

"Some days it's all I can do to get one animal a home, and two more come in," said Director of the Stamford Animal Care & Control Shelter Laurie Hollywood.

The animals need homes so the shelter can continue to take in other strays who need help. Those interested should contact Stamford Animal Control at 203-977-4437.


A 2-year-old Staffordshire Terrier was recovered from a home apparently being foreclosed upon last week.

Stamford Animal Control responding to reports of a dog continuously barking at a residence found an empty home.

The dog was found in the backyard at about 2:30 a.m. with no lights on, "scared to death." The dog was dragging around a length of rope tied around its neck and was severely malnourished.

UPDATE: Susan was a volunteer with Small Paws Rescue and when she adopted the dogs, she signed a contract saying they would be returned to SPR. SPR took over the cost for their vet care and all 4, including the bonded pair , were place in foster homes. Anyone interested in adopting should go to www.smallpawsrescue.org .
