2 Hamden dogs put on death row for 6+ years now freed


Two dogs that have been on death row for more than six years have been freed. 

Kato and Kleo, a pair of rottweilers, got out of their yard in Hamden back in 2012 and bit a neighbor.

The dogs’ owner has been fighting to keep her dogs alive ever since after the courts ordered to have them killed. 

“Kato and Kleo, formerly detained at the North Haven animal shelter, are being relocated to a sanctuary facility for animals in Florida. The dogs will live their lives in proper care, surrounded by loving facility managers,” Hamden Mayor Leng commented on the matter. “The transfer of the dogs was peacefully completed this morning, providing resolution to a complex and very challenging situation on all sides between the State, Town, and the dogs’ owner Ms. Miller.”
