The Mission of the Little Guild is to shelter and care for homeless cats and dogs, to find them loving new families, and to support their transition into homes through education and enrichment for both animals and adopters. They also serve the broader community through such programs as reduced-cost spay/neuter and vaccination clinics, a free pet food pantry, and pet-related education events.
The Little Guild, is the only limited admission shelter in northwest Connecticut, was founded in 1960 by Muriel Alvord Ward and Eleanora Kleinschmidt. The current 3,000-square-foot facility accommodates 16 dogs and 25 cats comfortably at any time.
Marilyn is a Labrador Retriever / Anatolian Shepherd / Mixed (medium coat)
Medium Adult Female (spayed)
Marilyn was adopted in 2017 and recently made her way back to the shelter, unfortunately. She’s a gorgeous girl, but is shy around strangers – so it takes a little time to get to know her. She is quite loyal and bonded once she finds her person, and so she will do well with a person who has large breed experience and is a strong pack leader. She’s a young girl with a lot of love left to give!
