Pet of the Week – Rizzi

HARTFORD -- Rizzi is 2 months old and she is a feist mix, which is a medium size dog.

She weighs under 7 pounds right now and she had been fostered with two adults and two teens with her brother.

She briefly met a resident cat and resident dog, and she was respectful and well-behaved both times! 

She is very friendly and affectionate, and also vocal. She loves any type of toy! She is working on pee pad training, so will need to fully learn to be housebroken. Rizzi has learned to sit and will fetch her toys so you can throw them again!

She is very gentle and loves being held. She will need a lot of exercise and people time because she’s still just a baby!

For more information on Rizzi or other pets that need homes, contact the CT Humane Society.

You can also join animal lovers from across the state at the Connecticut Humane Society's Faux Fur Ball Saturdayfrom 6-10 p.m. at the Hilton Mystic Hotel on 20 Coogan Boulevard in Mystic.

The fun starts with puppies greeting attendees at the door and continues with delicious food, complimentary wine and beer, music and a photo booth. The silent auction room will be packed wall to wall with sports game packages, theater tickets, craft brewery baskets and big-city trips, while the live auction will give guests an excuse to plan a tropical getaway—Caribbean vacations are just a few of the big-ticket items up for grabs. Pet-themed trivia and Fund the Pets bidding will round out the night.

All proceeds from the festivities benefit CHS pets and their medical treatment.
