October is national Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month and as such, the Montville Animal Shelter is hoping to find "forever" homes for dogs currently without one.
The dogs in need of homes range in age, size and breed. Here is some more information about some of the dogs:
Mugsy- Mugsy is an energetic Japanese Chin that was found as a stray. The male dog enjoys people but would do best with an older family.
Enta-Enta is a 9-month-old female that is good with other dogs but afraid of cats. She is playful and energetic.
Tuckse-Tuckse is also afraid of cats. She can be shy when introduced to new people and things but enjoys playing and rolling around in the grass.
The month-long campaign to adopt shelter dogs is endorsed by the ASPCA, a national humane organization that seeks to prevent cruelty of animals.
