We all love our pets, but there’s more to know about them than you ever imagined! The Connecticut Humane Society will teach you how to keep them safe, how to “speak” their language, how different breeds came to be, what kind of careers you can pursue to work with animals, and more. CHS is the leading resource in the state for companion animal welfare, enriching the lives of families and communities through adoption services, medical care, education, and prevention of cruelty.
