In the spirit of National Puppy Day on Friday, March 23, seniors in Stamford have adopted the newest member of their community, who was rescued from a high-kill shelter.

The residents and staff of the Edgehill retirement community in Stamford welcomed Savannah, a 3-month-old Chesapeake Bay retriever to their community as they get set to celebrate National Puppy Day, which is being observed on Friday around the country.

Residents at Edgehill noted that Savannah was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Mississippi and adopted from the SPCA of Westchester County. She will now call Edgehill her “forever home,” and will live and work alongside the residents and staff members to “help everyone enjoy full and active lives.”

“Edgehill has always been a pet-friendly community,” Christopher Barstein, Executive Director of Edgehill said. “Not only were we able to rescue Savannah, but she will be providing added value to our residents – constant love, affection and companionship.” So far, Savannah loves her new home and is enjoying meeting her new friends.”
