Katty Greyhound Picture
Katty

Katty is a 2 year old cow dog and will be looking for just the right home! When we first learned about her last year, she was quite the spook. Since then, she has come a long way and has come out of her shell a lot. She is still a bit of a spook at times and we will assess this further when she makes it to Connecticut.

Join us for a belated Father’s Day walk to celebrate all the greyt dads in our lives! This month, we have selected a new walk location, and we are very excited to explore Stanley Quarter Park in New Britain! This is a nice, short walk around a pond, and it is a paved trail! We will plan on doing at least one lap, and play it by ear with the weather for an additional lap.

We will aim to meet at the south end of the pond; there is a parking lot near that trail entrance. If you enter from Blake Rd, you will continue on Road A until you see Road B; the parking lot is off of Road B.
