  • Laying The Groundwork For A Place Of Healing In The Heart Of Newtown

    A rough path at the end of Old Farm Road leads to the top of a hill overlooking a property filled with beds of past-season goldenrod, milkweed pods exuding feathery seeds, and waist-high grasses. Jenny Hubbard, Monica Roberto, and Harmony Verna pause there. They are looking beyond the overgrown brush to a vision they have held close to their hearts for the last year and a half.

    To the Editor:

    On behalf of The Animal Center of Newtown, we wish to thank Caraluzzi's and manager Jeremiah Gentry for hosting a two-week cat food drive at the store.   The event was a success due to the many donations of canned and dry food from Caraluzzi's customers.

    Thank you to all !  It really does make a difference, and we appreciate the support.  Look for the next cat food drive in October.

    Sincerely,

    Paula Brinkman

  • Don't Forget To Protect Your Pets From The Cold

    While some animals may bask in a bitter winter day, others would tell their owners how cold they are, if they could.

    Canine Advocates of Newtown President Virginia Jess agrees that some dogs may love the cold, “but not all,” she said. She has noticed her own dog’s discomfort. Of her 40-pound sheltie-collie mix, she said, “I know that when we walk our dog in the snow, she would pick up her feet and I would wipe them off, the salt gets in there.” She also warns, “Animals can get frostbite, too.”
