Here is a great article from the Courant regarding Mayor Trinks stepping up to head the Committee to get this pound done!
“WINDSOR — As the owner of Bart’s Drive In, Donald Trinks has been serving the edible kind of dogs for years, but now he’s stepping up to try to help the pet-able kind as well.
Trinks, who is also the town’s mayor, has volunteered to lead a committee that will focus on getting a new dog pound built in town for much less than the $1 million price tag that has been quoted by contractors who bid on the job.”
WINDSOR LOCKS and WINDSOR RESIDENTS:
WL: YOU ARE ABOUT TO LOSE HALF OF YOUR DOG POUND TO WINDSOR. ONLY 8 RUNS ARE USABLE, LEAVING ONLY 4 FOR EACH TOWN.
WINDSOR: YOU ARE ABOUT TO LOSE YOUR DOG POUND IN TOWN, ENTIRELY.
If this disturbs you, please come to the special Windsor Town Council meeting this Wednesday, April 23rd, at the Windsor Town Hall at 6:30 p.m. to comment on this. We have money budgeted to build our own pound, but the Council has other plans.
Entrance and parking to the rear of the Town Hall at 275 Broad Street in Windsor center.
As many of you know, Friends of Windsor Animal Care and Control has been putting a lot of effort to keep our animals in town. Last year’s CIP (Capital Improvement Program) Budget granted $619,000 to build a new pound. The land where our current pound has been for 40 years has been sold, with no definite plans for a new location. Some of the Town Council members want us to just share the inadequate Windsor Locks pound, which would give us only four runs and have no facilities for cats, and would take patrolmen out of town. We have some 2,800 registered dogs in Windsor. A town this size really needs its own animal control facility.
Tomorrow night a decision will be made to either build a new pound in Windsor or send our animals to another town. We had accepted bids on building a new pound. The Town did not let the bidders know the amount that was approved. Therefore, bids came in for $900,000 and more, showing a building of up to 2,200 sq. ft. We could do just fine with 1,400 sq. ft., a simple structure for which FOWACC will even supply the runs. We have plans on hand that would give us our basic structure, keeping the project under budget and most importantly, keeping our animals in town.
We would so appreciate your presence at this meeting, not necessarily to speak, but to just show your support. Windsor is a growing town, and we really need our own facility.
The meeting is at the Windsor Town Hall at 7 p.m. Parking and entrance is at the rear of the building. Please try to attend. We hope to see you there.

Dom’s Eatery fundraiser today was a HUGE success. Thank you to all that came out and jam packed the restaurant, and participated in the raffles…Today at Dom’s Eatery, we had an unexpected reunion during the fundraiser. A wonderful day, a dog reunited with its owner and some wonderful good samaritans that took care of the pup were there to hand off the little cutie back to her home.
