There are some dogs and cats right now with some sad and strange stories at the
Take Sasha, who was captured by Waterford-East Lyme Animal Control Officer on July 10 after she was spotted roaming in Waterford without tags. Sasha had a cyst hanging off of the side of her head that was larger than her ear.
“It is one of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen,” Yuchniuk said.
Yuchniuk had to advertise that the town had Sasha in the newspaper and wait eight days before the dog became property of the town. Then he took it to Goodfriends Veterinary Clinic in East Lyme where the vets believe they can remove the cyst without hurting Sasha, he said.
Sasha also had fleas, extremely overgrown toenails and intestinal parasites, which have been taken care of, Yuchniuk said.
Yuchniuk is asking people to donate to Goodfriends directly for Sasha’s care. Once she is released, Yuchniuk said she will be available to adopt.
Cats In The Engine
On the weird side of things, an East Lyme woman heard a strange noise inside the engine of her car. She opened up the hood and out came two cats, who ran into the woods.
Yuchniuk set a trap and caught the cats a few days later. He also has them in the shelter and is trying to socialize them so they can be adopted.
, a pit bull who was severely neglected and was found tied to a tree at the Humane Society in Quaker Hill, is still at the shelter as well, Yuchniuk said. He is up for adoption, Yuchniuk said.
