Rudy 10 year old daschund needs a home!!


Meet RUDY, a 10 year old black and tan Dachshund that I rescued from the shelter in New York City, where he was found wandering as a stray! Can you imagine his fear? How he even survived in a big, dangerous city is just unbelievable to me.
Here's what we DO know, at this point:
He is about 10 years old (if not older). He is in good health. He had a skin condition when he first came in, that has improved with good care and food (and the nice grooming Club Member LINDA gave him, as a "welcome to safety" present!). He LOVES children, ok with other dogs and with cats. He works hard to improve his house-training skills, but needs regular walks and monitoring, to help him to improve here. Therefore, it would be best for someone to adopt him that would be HOME more than not, to get him on a regular schedule that he can rely on. He LOVES to eat (what Dachshund doesn't?), and enjoys his meals!
He loves to sleep IN YOUR BED! Snuggle-bug boy. Wears a sweater well, as you can see by attached photos.
Folks, he has fostered with kind members of our Club for the past few months.
He has been moved from one wonderful home to the next, through no fault of his own, but due to changing circumstances of each foster family. I WANT SOMEONE TO LOVE HIM FOREVER! PLEASE-can you help me find a family for RUDY?
He just wants someone to love him....
His follow up check-up will be taken care of financially.
I don't want to see him shuffled around again. He MUST find a new home no later than January 3rd!~
Please help, if you can! We can arrange a "meet and greet" with anyone at any time!
Thanks for considering Rudy!

Adopt Mistletoe, senior pit bull waits a year for a new home after owner neglect

When her aging owner was developing Alzheimer's disease, his dog became the victim of his health problem. The sad situation resulted in Mistletoe being left unattended without food or water for long periods of time. At one point, her owner put the devoted dog in a room by herself. When the situation was reported, authorities entered the premises and took the homeowner out for examination, care and hospitalization. A day later, authorities returned to the home and discovered the emaciated dog waiting in the back room for an owner who would never return. The very sweet but skeletal pit bull was brought to the Society's Tinton Falls facility. Besides her neglected state, she was found to have an ear infection, a swelling on the side of her face, lacerations to the face, cellulitis ... and a broken heart. She arrived on Dec. 23, 2009 -- almost one year ago -- and so she has been named Mistletoe. All of her physical ailments have been corrected and her face is always in the food bowl! We are not showing you her before photos. this is what she looks like now. Her personality shows a joy for life that is outstanding! It is our hope that Santa will have a special gift for her this year. File TF-58410-SF (Tinton Falls) Contact us at 732-922-0100 if interested in giving Mistletoe her home.

Adopt Gussie, 8 year old collie/shepherd never had a real home

Gussie came to our shelter as a puppy and was named Asparagus. She was adopted to a family as a puppy....sadly it would not be her happy ending. The family left her in the backyard, alone and isolated for a year. They brought her back a year later...complaining that she was shy and fearful. Gee, I wonder why? We made a promise to "Gussie" that she would never be neglected again. She has been at the shelter for the last 8 years. Although Gussie is safe and cared for, we think she now deserves a second chance at family life. We want her to know that there are loving people that will let her be a part of their family. Gussie is still a little reserved until she knows you, then she'll flop to the ground for belly rubs (she is a sucker for a belly rub!). Because of her past, we would prefer she be adopted to a home with another dog so that she feels comforted.

Her only chance at a home would be a patient person willing to help her overcome her fears and help her learn to trust. The good news is she is food motivated (what Beagle isn't!). We do not anticipate this to be an easy transformation, and it would take a lot of dedication and work. She is eligible for our A.D.O.P.T. program (adult dogs offered professional training) where she could live with a dog trainer for up to two weeks to give a potential adopter the tools to help her acclimation to home life.

Adopt SAMMY, senior spitz/chow mix age 10 needs home

Sammy is a very pretty, fluffy lady around 33 lbs who is house trained, leash trained, and good with other dogs and cats. She was surrendered to the shelter by her owners due to allergies; they stated she is 10 years old, but she does not show her age. Sammy has seizures; and she has also exhibited some compulsive tail chasing and food issues. Shelter life is very stressful and intensifying her anxiety. These types of behavior issues are generally easily resolved once in a secure and loving home. Because of Sammy's age and medical needs, her chances of being adopted from the shelter are very slight. We need your help to find her a safe and loving home with an owner who has endless love to give to our fluffy friend. Liberty Humane Society. please contact for more information about Sammy. this is her link.

Adopt Daisy, adorable 10 year old female jack russell

Meet Daisy! This active senior girl (~10 years) entered the Liberty Humane Society as a stray on 10/6/2010. The first day she was a timid little pooch but after one day of hanging out in the office she achieved total diva status! She quickly became attached to those around her and showered everyone with affection. Once she settled into the office though, she became a nipper whenever anyone would attempt to leave her alone. Otherwise she never nips anyone. It seems that Daisy has some separation anxiety issues -- She quickly bonds to those in her life and just hates to see them go!
Daisy is a adorable, bundle of energy who doesn't let her age slow her down. This sassy Jack Russel loves everyone she meets. Unfortunatley she's quite wound up after being kenneled for many months and is hoping to find a place where she can spread her proverbial wings soon!
Daisy appears to be in great health and shows no signs of any medical issues. She could benefit from gaining a few pounds. She's UTD on her basic vaccinations, de-wormed, and appears housebroken. CONTACT: SNDAWSON924@GMAIL.COM. rescue help welcome!

Adopt Lila, adorable 10 year old female jack russell terrier

Meet Lila -

Her family retired, moved to Florida... and left her behind. Lila, an adorable Jack Russell Terrier mix, their devoted companion of 10 years, suddenly abandoned, scared and alone. They dropped her at a municipal shelter, where she faced being put to sleep. Thankfully, we were able to transfer this senior pooch into Bideawee. The 17 pound dog is remarkably spunky for her age - she can keep up with the fastest walkers! Once Lila is comfortable with a person, she typically does very well, becoming social and playful. She is best suited for an experienced, adult family, as she has demonstrated mild resource guarding. Lila gets along with some other dogs and seems to be friendly with cats, but she would be perfectly happy as your only pet! She's very cute and deserves so much more in her "retirement"! Lila also loves to run through puddles and jump in fountains - she loves to play in water! please contact Audrey Fisher

Bbetween our now three dogs (granted one is temporary) one child and another on the way Jasmine is not getting any attention from us. She loves to cuddle up and she is not getting any of that. I am not one to give up on an animal but there comes a point where they could be happier in another environment. if you would like to adopt Jasmine, please respond to for application. thanks.

90 pounds of pure love!
Meet Skeeter, a pooch who’s had some seriously bad luck. Skeeter spent four years at PAWS before being adopted back in 2007. Everyone who knew him couldn’t understand why he kept getting passed over.

Adopt Pepper, 15 year old grey and white tabby cat

The name is Pepper, and I'm as spicy as my name. I'm in a room with other cats here at Paws, and I'm the Queen Bee. Those young whipper-snappers have nothing on me. I lived in a good home before they were born. Unfortunately I developed an infection and my owner couldn't afford to take care of me. My vet took me in and brought me to Paws. This certainly isn't supposed to happen to a 15 year old cat. But that's life - ups and downs. I would certainly like to have a quiet home of my own without any other animals. No children either. I don't like like my back end or tummy touched, so we don't want any young'uns swatted now do we. I like my play time, don't get me wrong, but I also like to lay in a nice sunbeam all afternoon without any disruptions. When I want attention I'll let you know. I'm very talkative and I'll nag you until you give in.
Like I said before, I'm 15 years old and a big girl. I'm spayed, current on all my vaccinations and I've tested negative for FIV and FelV. contact for adoption info.

Adopt Demmie, sweet 10 year old tabby

Adopt Aponte, 8 year old akita mix

Aponte is a handsome doggie, likely an Akita mix and a jumble of others. He is 8 years old, and has sadly spent half his life locked up in shelters. But he loves people and craves belly rubs from them. He is perfectly housetrained and currently learning basic commands. He plays well with other doggies in the dog run. He currently weighs 70lbs, but he is on a strict diet and in a few months, he'll weigh a much healthier 55-60lbs. He's a super loving dog, modest energy, and can get along with calm cats. His ideal forever home would not be too busy with visitors, but he is a fan of kind people and would be fine with kids that are gentle with him. if you would like to meet Aponte please email

Adopt Carter, 10 year old lab mix

Carter is a 10 year old lab mix who came in with Sydney when their owner lost their job and home. He should make a nice, calm companion. Not overly affectionate at first, we expect him to be more playful and affectionate when he is comfortable with people. It will probably take some time for him to adjust and bond with a new owner. click here for general adoption info
Carter is up-to-date with routine shots, house trained and spayed/neutered.

Adopt Coco, a 10 year old male chihuahua

Cocoa the Chihuahua Mix is a great little guy. He is a neutered and 10 years old.His animal-loving guardian was recently moved to hospice care due to terminal cancer and dementia. He and a lovebird, Eve, were taken out of an apartment that was in horrible condition and infested with insects. The guardian is just lucid enough to know her animals are safe, cared for and loved in their foster homes. She recently surrendered her animals to my program.He is playful, cuddly, absolutely adorable and would do best as an only pet.He is totally housetrained, and obeys commands. He walks well on his leash, but barks a lot at other dogs. He listens when pulled away and told "No."If interested in this great dog, I will pay for a training session if the dog issue is a concern. (Dog runs may not be a possibility, however....)Jenny OlsenPets for Life NYC Coordinatorjolsen@humanesociety.orgt 347.301.8094
