Standing Up For You!

A Personal Message

I am taking a moment, very briefly hitting the pause button on all of the other important issues around us, to send out a personal message on an issue near and dear to me.

I'd like to introduce Molly, the newest member of our family. She is a 10 month old terrier mix who was abandoned around Exit 18 on I-95.

Senator Duff and Molly.

We adopted her from the Westport Animal Shelter (the pound) and want to thank them and the Westport Animal Shelter Advocates, a nonprofit group, for their care. Molly had been there a month.

We recently lost our beloved Riley, but after meeting Molly we knew it was time to open our hearts and rescue another (our third) four-legged friend who will bring us more joy than we'll ever realize.

She's sweet, full of energy and has fit in really well. Follow her on Facebook at

My message today is if you are thinking about adding a four-legged friend to your home, please consider adopting and rescuing an animal who needs a forever home. There are lots of great organizations in our area that have the perfect animal for your family.

In the end, you'll be rescued more than your pet and you will both be forever grateful.
