Meet Diamond! This beautiful girl was saved from the kill shelter and now has nowhere to call home because her foster bailed on her. She will need an experienced foster to work with the trained we will provide on her resource guarding and separation anxiety issues. This beautiful girl has so much love to give-please give her a chance!
Meet Slim! He is the sweetest man and needs help finding his foster or forever home. Slim was saved from the euthanasia list earlier this month and now has no where to call home after his adopter bailed on him. He does have some issues that will need to be worked on with our trainer such as resource guarding and some defensive behavior towards males. He is about 6 years young, up to date and neutered.
Meet Tiffany! This sweet girl was saved from the kill shelter and has been doing amazing in foster ever since. She loves stuffed animals, kongs, pup cups, and raspberries. Tiffany enjoys running around the yard for sticks just as much as snuggle time. Tiffany is unknown with cats and children but is great with other dogs. She is 2 years old, 52 lbs, spayed, and up to date.
Meet Apollo! This sweetie pie was saved from the euthanasia list at the ACC! He will need a foster that can take him to vet appointments for his possible neurological condition. Apollo currently uses wee-wee pads. We are unsure if he is incontinent or not potty trained. Apollo needs to be an only dog or go to an experienced foster who can do slow introductions.
Meet Karl! He was found by a volunteer who noticed he was being abused in his feral colony. He was emaciated and had lice. He has since been treated and has an amazing coat, but we discovered he is FIV positive. He will require a foster who is experienced in socializing.
Meet Akira! Akira was rescued from the euthanasia list in NYC in late February! She is so happy in her temporary foster home, however she needs a new foster that can work with her on basic training including leash training. She would do best in a home with larger dogs or as an only dog. She is 2 years old, up to date, and spayed.
Twinkle was a part of a TNR project in Elmont. Twinkle loves to explore the playroom as well as snuggle with her feline friends. She has trust issues and takes awhile to warm up but once she does, she loves to be shown affection and be pet! She is about 1year old, up to date and spayed. She will require a patient foster or adopter who will allow her time to decompress and get used to her surroundings. Will you give this beautiful girl a chance?
Meet Lola and Juno. These girls were neglected since they were kittens-they were thrown in an attic for 10-12 years. When we received them, Lola's nails were severely curled into her paw pads, making it painful to walk. Juno was severely skinny and malnourished. After being vetted it was discovered that Juno had hyperthyroidism. It is being managed with one pill twice daily. These 12 year old ladies need a calm environment to live out their days together and learn what love is.
Meet Cassidy! Cassidy has been with us for some time now and she still waiting for a forever home. She foster or adopter who can work with her on trusting humans and accepting love. She will require more one-on-one time, but has been opening up to our volunteers so much. She loves other cats but would do best in a quiet home. She is 1-2 years old, up to date, spayed and microchipped.
Meet Trevor! Trevor just needs a patient foster family to show him what love is. He unfortunately lost his brother last year which left him lonely and afraid. Our other cats welcomed him with open arms and he can almost always be found snuggling with them! Trevor would benefit from a quiet foster home, ideally with a feline friend, where he can get some extra TLC to help him break out of his shell.
Meet Laurel! This sweet boy was a victim of a hit and run where he suffered a severed tail on the streets of Laurelton. Because of this he is very scared and it takes him a while to trust people. He has started to come out of his shell a little bit in the play room but would really benefit from a patient and loving foster to give him the extra TLC he deserves, and give him a reason to trust again!
