  • Advocates and volunteers gathered in Bicentennial Park in Milford on Sunday night for a candlelight vigil recognizing the 19 dogs euthanized at the Safe Haven Animal Shelter hours before its doors closed on Nov. 14.
    A total of about 12 people attended the vigil, many of whom were Safe Haven volunteers.
    "The cold scared a lot of the planned service goers away, but the service still went on," said JD Bennett, shelter animal advocate an co-organizer of the event.
    The vigil was organized by JD Bennett and Jessica Duckett, who are also owners of a shelter dog themselves.  Ribbons were created for the service as a special honor, with purple signifying animal cruelty and the black representing for shelter animals.
