Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter announced the news Tuesday, March 2.

They posted a video on Facebook of Lincoln’s journey from abandonment to rescue, rehabilitation, and now adoption.

They said, in part, “The last photo in the video is of Lincoln’s new owner who is a vet tech. Lincoln lives with another dog, a fenced-in yard, and is signed up for training. He has a wonderful, dedicated new family to adore him for the rest of his life. We love you Lincoln and congratulations on your new best life!”


Posted by the Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter Friday, Feb. 19, Lincoln is now up for adoption!

The shelter said in their video that Lincoln is “doing awesome and loves to play and be around people!”


Customers were welcomed to stop by Frisco’s Pizza in New Haven and buy a pie or leave a donation. All of the money went to help Lincoln at Dan Cosgrove Animal Shelter.

Lincoln was found abandoned outside in Branford last month suffering from frostbite.

According to volunteers at the shelter, Lincoln is going well, adding that his skin and paws are getting better!

This fundraiser for Lincoln will put John Frisco, the owner of Frisco’s Pizza, over $100,000 in donations for various rescue animals in the community.
