Venus needs a home - great older yellow labrador - Port Jervis NY

This is Venus. He was abandoned at the vet, then taken to Port Jervis Humane Society. Venus has been at the shelter for 3 months. He is very sad because he has been passed by many times, maybe because of the gray on his face? He wags his tail when potential adopters walk by, in hopes they will stop at his kennel and say “That’s the one I want!” but so far, that has not happened. He is very active for an 8 year old lab and very sweet. No cats please but good with other dogs and people. He weighs about 60 lbs, in good health and is neutered. He knows “sit”, is housetrained and walks well on a leash.
 He has a winning personality and just wants to go to his forever home. Can someone please take him into rescue and help him find a terrific human companion?

 Please call the shelter at 845-856-3677. If the phone is busy, keep trying to get through as they are very busy. Hours are Tuesday-Saturday, 10 AM-4:30 PM, Sunday 1-3 PM, closed on Mondays.

Bob needs rescue now! Senior Beagle at Ohio shelter - dogs are NOT walked they sit in cages 24/7

CONTACT:  Toni Kennett 
Bob is an older, sweet beagle who finds himself in a tiny rural dog pound where the dogs stay in their cages 24/7 until they are killed or rescued.  The pound does nothing other than put them on petfinder.
This area of Ohio has quite a few hunters - so at one time, Bob may have belonged to a hunter before he got too old. 
Now Bob's only hope of escape from a dreary, deadend existence for the remainder of his life is for an adopter or rescue to take pity on him.
There is some pull and transport help available for this boy.
Senior Pets NYC will help pay for neuter for Bob.  Please don't let him die sitting in a kennel 24/7.

SAD NEWS - Reuben passed away at the shelter before he was rescued.

This is poor Reuben. Please look at the sadness and loss of hope in his eyes and crosspost him all over. He needs a home or a rescue.  He came into the shelter over a month ago- probably longer.  He came in already neutered so was someone's pet at one time. He's confused and scared. I've met this boy- thought it takes time for him to approach you he took treats from me as I sat outside his kennel and talked to him. He let me pet him and take him out on leash though he was so scared.   He needs a quiet place to be, will do ok with other dogs if they're calm.. He needs love and patience. He needs a Christmas miracle - a home or even a foster home. Needs out of the shelter.  There is no pull fee. He is up to date on vaccines and hw neg.
Please call Kim at the shelter 931 507 3647 or call Jamie after hours 931 409 2195. Jamie's email  Reuben needs a loving home or rescue for the holidays.

SENIOR ALERT!!!  Blossom - Shar Pei (mix)  Geauga County - Novelty, OH (bs)
Spend a little time with Blossom, the most adorable little old lady you will ever meet. Blossom is a 9-year-old shar-pei mix with a grey and white pattern. She is a little chunky, but that just means there's more to love! Blossom can be a little shy around others, so a home without kids or other dogs would suit her ve...
ry well. She is housebroken and calm as can be when you walk through the door of a long, hard day. Blossom is quite the little love bug, and was surrendered in the field to our humane agent. Now that she is away from a bad situation, she has been doing wonderful at Rescue Village and would love nothing more than to find a Forever Home just in time for the holidays. Will you give this polite little snuggler the happy ending she deserves?"
If you cannot adopt this loving dog, please consider becoming a cage sponsor. To learn more about the Meet Your Match (MYM) program, please contact us or see our Petfinder shelter page.

Not much to ask, right? Sweet Sydney has some skin issues on his rear quarters, but a bit of antibiotics and some good quality food should help out with that a ton (of course, a vet's opinion should be sought as well).

18 year old lab mix dumped into shelter!!! owner just walks away

Just as our Lobby opened on Friday morning, a well appointed woman walked an elderly lab-mix through the front door.
"I want to surrender my dog. She's eighteen and has kidney disease."

Our Executive Director took the time to speak with her, reminding her how lucky she was to have had her loving pet for so long, and how hard it would be for the pet to face end of life issues in a strange environment.                          She offered to help her to the best of the Shelter's ability by providing specialty food, if only she would reconsider abandoning the dog. After ten minutes of discussion, Suzi was confident that the woman understood the importance of standing by her obligation to love her pet as unconditionally as it loved her.
Guess who's not going to be home for the holidays?
Fifteen minutes later, a staff member saw an unforgivable sight. In broad daylight, on busy Boca Rio Road, the woman had tied her dog to our fence. We immediately brought the dog in and provided K/D food and water.

When you visit our shelter, the faces you see in the Runs are those of happy, healthy dogs. Eyes bright and tails wagging in anticipation of a new home. Now we have a picture as heart wrenching as those you see on TV; the blank, demoralized face of an animal who has lost her life line, her person, her heart.

TriCounty Humane Society is meeting its mission to serve; "Animals Under Protection." "Friday," at eighteen years of age, is not homeless. She will have a home here for as long as she needs. In time, we hope the the tender love and kindness employed by our staff and volunteers will help make an impact of this poor, rejected animal. Soon she'll realize that she's not alone, and that she is loved. Friday will come to understand that while once abandoned, she will never be abandoned again. She'll always have a warm, quiet bed; healthy food; love and attention.

If you read this and something inside you says 'I want to make a difference in a shelter pets life' we invite you to join us in loving and caring for these dogs and cats until they can find their forever home. Even if that home is here.

Friday is available through our Foster Program. Please contact the Shelter if you would like more information. If you would like to help with her special needs, we are accepting donations of K/D food. The owner disclosed some medical problems, and we anticipate finding more after she's been evaluated by a veterinarian.
You can make donations for Friday through our website,or by mail or at the Shelter. You can call us at:561-482-8110. 
Thank you.

11 year old maltese needs rescue or home now white plains ny

Aria needs a HOME!!! She is a friendly dog. 11 years old with Cushing’s disease. Requires medication. (we would be willing to help with that expense, if necessary). Gets along well with other animals. Full disclosure: she is not house broken because her owner (my 82 year old sister-in-law now in a nursing home suffering from Dementia) never walked her. She is trained to use wee-wee pads.
I must stress that this is an urgent situation because my wife and I cannot take care of her.
Again, our thanks.

Feebee and Cid need new homes in shelter since Sept.!

My friend Cid and I had a home but our owner left the door open, so we went out to explore the world. When we were done exploring, we found ourselves lost and even though we tried hard, we just couldn't find our way back home. So we ended up in the shelter on 9/20 and have been waiting to get reclaimed since then. I think that our owner has given up on finding us therefore we need a new home! We are both older dogs, around 8 years but happy and easy going. People say that I have the most beautiful eyes...kind of like a Husky! We are fine going to different homes, as long as we don't have to stay in this loud and crowded place we are at now. I'm house trained and good with children. I don't mind other dogs and I am very easy going. All I need is LOVE and affection. Would you please consider giving me a new home? When you adopt me, I will get micro chipped and all my shots will be up to date. Please come meet me and play with me...My ID# is 548655 and I am in run 21 with Cid and I weigh 27 lbs. When calling the shelter about a cat or dog, please use THE ID NUMBER, the names are oftentimes made up by volunteers. This beautiful pet and many others need a forever, loving home and are available for adoption from the Cobb County Animal Shelter, 1060 Al Bishop Drive Marietta, Georgia 30008, call (770) 499-4136 for more information.

Jasper a 13 year old tuxedo cat needs new home!

Jasper is one big, gorgeous senior cat. A true lovey dovey of a feline, whose owner, sadly, recently passed away. Jasper only knew one human who gave him tons of tender loving care. Family relatives are taking care of him until a permanent home can be found. He's a very special feline -- his fur is gorgeous, and he loves to have it brushed on one of his special pillows and then given a big hug, lots of soft stroking and a yummy little treat. Jasper has a wonderful personality, but we think he will do best as the only cat in the household, as that is what he is accustomed to. To meet Jasper, please contact the Desmonds or email

Adopt Shadow 8 year old flat coated retriever mix

My son agreed to foster this lovely lab mix in Cornwall, NY after her family dropped her at a local shelter, due to losing their home, where she was totally traumatized. 
She's 8-9 yrs old.  BEAUTIFUL, in excellent health, bonds quickly, loyal, loves long hikes and playing w/toys.  One tiny issue is that she can occasionally nip/bite.  She's done so w/him 2 times since April.  We've seen a behaviorist and she felt Shadow has some "guarding" issues - not food, etc.  She's fine w/other dogs.  Don't know re cats.  Obviously shouldn't be w/kids.
I ran an ad and a lady adopted her.  We told her to go very slowly but after just a wk, she started grooming her and Shadow bit her.  She was returned to the shelter and once again, my son came to her rescue.  He adopted her but cannot keep her due to travel plans.
If you are a patient person and a dog experienced person and would like to meet Shadow, please email  or call:
(917) 364-6904 

all applicants will be screened and a home check is required.

Two cute bonded puggles need a home!

Two bonded puggles need home now.

hi .. meet Jack and Diesel.. 7 year male neutered puggles. They were given up because Jack did not take kindly to the new children in the household. They shared a home contently with cats but when the children arrived jack was not happy. They are very much attached the hip which is why the owner gave up both and not just jack. They are crate trained, and like being together in the crate, but as you can see they love to run together also. They could definitely do with loosing a couple of pounds, but as you can see they have the best of both breeds, as a pug.. they have great temperament and that cute curly tail, but as beagles the have the more pronounced snout so they do not have the breathing difficulties and facial and eye infection problems commonly seen in pugs. Puggles are really an excellent breed and quite hardy dogs!

Adopt Jake springer spaniel mix, owner dying - myrtle beach sc


Jake's owner isn't doing very well, so time is running out. 
Read more here:

A 77-year-old man with Parkinson's disease, who was diagnosed with throat and lung cancer one month ago, has one dying wish: to find the best new forever home for his best friend Jake.

Jake is a 7-year-old chocolate lab and springer spaniel mix described as faithful, loving and a good boy by his dog walker, Cindy Bright.
Jake's owner isn't doing very well, so time is running out. Cindy was contacted by the owner's wife, just shortly before she passed away from lung cancer.
"I'd take him, but I already have 5 dogs," Cindy said. "His ideal owner would be a single woman with no children or no other pets," Cindy added.
Cindy said that she's posted information about Jake on Facebook for two weeks, but has had no luck finding a permanent local owner for Jake. Jake is currently located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Gus a 13 year old yellow lab needs new home or rescue - westchester ny

Hello.  My family is moving abroad in January and sadly, we have not been able to find anyone willing to take our 13 year old Lab.  This is incredibly sad for us be we cannot take him with us and don't know what to do.  Could you possibly post his picture and let me know if you know of anyone who might be interested?  He just had his senior wellness exam a couple of months ago.  He is fine (just old) and is up to date with all of his shots.  He's fantastic with children.  His name is Gus.  We live in Bedford Corners.  Thank you for any help you can offer.
email is  phone is: 914.506.1771
Simply getting to Costa Rica from our house will require over 10 hours in a crate, which I feel is cruel and traumatic.  I'm not going to pass Gus off to just anyone.  However, if there is a loving family here who would welcome him into their home, I feel that it would be best for him.  We are returning in 1 year so even if someone just chose to foster him, that would be great.  
Pic is attached.  He is a 13 year old yellow lab.  He is up to date with all shots and had his senior wellness exam a few months ago.  He is very mellow and great with kids of all ages.  He takes one arthritis pill with his dinner.  It is simply added to his dinner bowl.  It is a $4 generic at Target.  He eats twice a day.  He needs a home without a lot of stairs leading to the first level.
Please let me know if there are other details required for the post.  Otherwise, I can answer any questions directly that a potential host family might have.
Thank you.

Gorgeous 7 year old female purebred chocolate labrador Snoopy needs a rescue or home - Rock Hill SC

Snoopy is a 7 year old female brown lab born in July 2005. She is AKC registered 
and is a wonderful dog. 
However, Snoopy is beginning to have problems with incontinence and 
looses control of her bladder, and leaks where she is laying. This is 
becoming difficult in the house. We have been to our Vet and his opinion 
is that it has been too long of a period and no medication will prevent 
or reduce this problem. Because of this I had decided to put her 
down,and the Vet even supported me on my position. I would like to know 
if there is somewhere Snoopy can go to live out her life. She is still 
full of energy, enjoys going out in the morning and then jumping with 
joy for a cookie. Other than this issue there does not seem to be any 
other health problems that anyone can find. I wanted to see if you knew 
of someone/somewhere that could take her and deal with this problem.

note: I spoke to her owner Christine. She is very open to rescue and does not
want to put Snoopy down.  the vet told her Snoopy is on the borderline for
cushing's.  Snoopy does not have access to go out when she needs to, there
is not dog door.  Rescue seems to be her only option now.  If you can help Snoopy, please email the owner at or
you can email who is also trying to help Snoopy get into a rescue.
