Sal, Rest in Peace

Adopt a Senior Dog Stamford Connecticut SalIn Loving Memory

We lost Sal on Wed. 8/6.   Sal was a senior shelter dog dumped on the streets of Stamford. OPIN took him into our care so he would not have to spend time at the shelter.  Sal had a multitude of ailments and he fought a six-month battle trying to kick those illnesses. We are most grateful to Sal's foster dad and for the opportunity to allow Sal to enjoy his last six months of life being loved by a human.
