In March, animal control officers in Waterbury found Precious, a 1-year-old pit bull mix, suffering from severe burns after receiving a call about a dog needed treatment.

Now she is doing well, goes by the name Glimmer, and needs a forever home. 

When officials found Glimmer, they said she might have suffered a severe case of mange and someone tried to treat it, but made the situation worse and Glimmer was suffering severe burns. 

She was rushed to a hospital for treatment and Halfway Home, a North Haven-based rescue group, also stepped up and took over financial responsibility for medical care.

Now, two months later, Glimmer is doing well and needs a forever home. 

Glimmer and many other animals in need of a home are at Petsmart at 53 Boston Post Road in Orange today.

The pet adoption event goes on until 4 p.m.
