Opt to Adopt: Mittens

Dogs N Pawz

Welcome to Tuesday's Tails, sponsored by Dogs N Pawz.
We are a group of bloggers who want to bring awareness to an animal each week who is need of a home of their own.

This is my very first Opt to Adopt post and I'm featuring a little lady with quite a story to tell.

Mittens is at the Humane Society of Chittenden County in Burlington, Vermont (my local shelter). She's quite famous around these parts, being featured in the Burlington Free Press after having been found clinging to the Burlington Community Boathouse dock about to fall into Lake Champlain!!! Luckily a brave security guard was able to rescue her. Her owner wasn't found so she's currently up for adoption.

You can read her profile here.

Hi fellow New Englander! Quite a coincidence that I posted my first Opt to Adopt post today too, and mine is a dog from NH.
Mittens is so cute, she reminds me of a cat I used to have. I hope she finds a home soon.
