WESTPORT, Conn. -- Pippa, a young maltese-terrier mix, is looking for a permanent home through Westport Animal Control after making a recovery from a cruelty case.

Pippa's life changed after a volunteer from Westport Animal Shelter Advocates saw her being dragged by a rope down Post Road in Westport months ago. The volunteer's advocacy made sure that Pippa made her way to Westport Animal Control, a no-kill shelter where she was kept safe while they legal issues from her cruelty case were resolved. Now Pippa has a chance for a happy life in a forever home.

Pippa visited the Shulhof Animal Hospital on Wednesday for blood work, dental care, vaccinations, grooming and other vet care funded by the WASA. The work will ensure that Pippa has everything she needs for a long, healthy life.

The volunteer who helped Pippa has found time to visit Pippa every day and helped her learn that humans can be kind and loving and not to be feared.

Animal Control is looking for a home where Pippa will not be left alone for prolonged periods of time, and she can enjoy the diva lifestyle she deserves. She would be best in an adult home, or a home with older children. She has tested well with other small dogs.

To contact WASA, call (203) 557-0361 or send an email to As with all dogs adopted from Westport Animal Control, an appointment needs to be scheduled for a meet and greet. An adoption application and a home visit are part of the adoption process.
