“Strictly Seniors” Senior Cat Adoption Event Coming to NYC on May 4

“Strictly Seniors” Senior Cat Adoption Event Coming to NYC on May 4

On Sunday, May 4, the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals will host Strictly Seniors, its first-ever adoption event for cats seven years and older. To bring attention to the hundreds of senior cats who need loving, forever homes, the Alliance is partnering with Frankie’s Fund for Feline Care & Rescue, a rescue group focusing exclusively on older cats, and Cauz For Pawz Thrift Stores, which raises money for animal rescue.

Strictly Seniors
Sunday, May 4, 2014
Noon–4:00 p.m.
Cauz For Pawz Thrift Stores, 212 East 23rd Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues), New York, NY

Like senior dogs, senior cats are the elder statesmen of the animal world. While the attraction of kittens (and puppies) is undeniable, their mature counterparts have their own distinct charms and offer many advantages.

Senior cats make great pets, and not just for senior citizens, but for families and single people of all ages, as well. And when you adopt a senior pet, what you see is usually what you get; while they remain lively and full of charm, their personalities are already fully developed.

Instead of the high-energy play kittens require, older cats are happiest when they have a cozy lap to curl up in and a friendly hand to give their bellies and their ears a loving rub.

There are intangible benefits, too. Becoming the caregiver for an older pet is a transformative experience. In offering these animals a second chance at a loving, secure home, adopters get a warm, loving presence that brings with it that rarest of things: unconditional affection.

BRONX NY - Two large senior dogs losing home - need home or rescue now!!!

Bruno and Mimi are 11 yr old sibling boxer/Rottweiler mixes, who have spent their entire lives living at a local furniture building store in the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx. They are super social and great with kids and ok with other dogs too. Best Bullies, Inc. is trying to help because unfortunately the store owner is losing his store soon (his rent is being doubled) and these brothers have nowhere to go. They need a home by the end of this month (April).  Mimi (short for Demetrius) is ailing and not in great health physically, but neither have major medical issues. They are not neutered. They each weigh about 120 pounds.
We took them for a vet visit (their first time ever seeing a vet). She prescribed to Mimi some pills to ease the pain in his old bones. When he was about two years old a worker smashed his back with a two-by-four, so he has walked with a painful limp ever since. (The worker was promptly fired).  
The owner does not take them out for walks. They relieve themselves in a little area behind the store. The owner will not be able to take them to his home.
If you can help foster or adopt these guys together please let us know by e-mailing us at bestbulliesny@aol.com   

Thank you!

Chicago IL - two senior dogs bonded companions need a home - owner dogs - good with dogs, cats kids!

My dog-loving friends: Please share this for me. Jack (male in forefront) and Roscoe (female behind Jack) are in need of a forever home. Both are 9 years old and have been together since they were pups. Pulled off of Craigslist by Laura Otto who is involved with rescue, but does not operate a rescue. Owner relinquishment...new babies allergic; decrease in income; can't afford anymore. Craigslist Posting: "Free to Good Home." Rescue folks know that is not good. These 2 seniors are as sweet as can be. Friendly, good with dogs, cats and kids. Housetrained. A few of us have come together to help these wonderful senior dogs.

Atlanta, GA Sweet Olivia, a senior plotthound mix tripod needs rescue or home now

Olivia is about 13 years old, said to be a Plotthound. I would guess her to be about 40-45 lbs. She was found injured by a car, having been shot at, and pregnant with 12 puppies, quite some time ago. She had one back leg amputated.
I have visited with Olivia, and she is incredibly active for a senior disabled dog! She typically runs out of the house to greet me, and then takes a few gallops around the neighborhood! Very friendly with other dogs; she takes a sniff of them as they are being walked in the neighborhood. Does not show any aggression towards them.
Olivia grew up with 3 other dogs, and 70 cats! She is dog friendly, and ignores older cats but cannot be around kittens.
Olivia's owners are losing their home to foreclosure. They have not been served with papers as of this date 3/29/14, but expect them soon. After papers are served, there is a week's time before the doors will be locked.
please email petrescue@ideaassociates.com   if you can help./

NJ - Meet ONYX a senoir male labrador in need of a home!

Hi Everyone, Att'd are 3 before and 3 after pix of Onyx a senior Lab from NJ.  He is 12-13 years old, and went into a foster home in Nov. 2013 when his family lost their home to foreclosure.  He had a bad skin infection, a few other problems, and was very depressed.  His foster mom fixed his skin, and got a few pounds off his achy hips, and he has changed into a happy, silly, loving Lab.  He tries to run fast in the yard and trots like a pony on the way back to the house, all proud.

He still needs a retirement home.  He gets along great with other dogs and ok w/cats, he loves to feel like he is part of the gang, follows you everywhere even if its just a few feet.  He was a big boy in his prime, and still is, but needs to keep weight down to ease his hips and back end.  I don;t know how long he has but there is still some life in him.  He is a real lover boy.  If anyone can help, please let me know, and please cross post if you are full.  Thank you, Pat 609-927-0842 or laurenpets@yahoo.com

Mooresvillle NC Gorgeous chocolate senior labrador Smokey needs new home or rescue!!

 Smokey is a 9 year old purebred chocolate lab, crate trained, house trained, hw negative, up to date on vaccines, micro chipped and neutered. He loves to play fetch, take walks and laying around. His family is trying to find a better home for him as the birth of their third child causes smokey a ton of anxiety. Their vet had tried dog Prozac and Xanax, and the owners were not comfortable with the change in personality on those medications. The vet had actually said that if they weren't going to keep him medicated, they should euthanize him because the quality of life was not good in that situation. Once he had been at my house for the last three weeks, he's calmed down considerably and seems to be enjoying himself. I believe his quality of life would be better in a calm home where he will get lots of attention. He cannot go anywhere to be an outside dog.  Unfortunately, he is a humper and I've not been able to stop that, therefore, where is he friendly with other dogs, other dogs may not like it. Please share him so I can find him a home, perhaps a retired person, or a couple with a more relaxed lifestyle. The owners have been trying all the techniques I used at my home, but he's just miserable with them and their kids.

Angel's mom, who lives in Uniontown, has to move, so Angel needed to be rehomed.  Currently, she's in a temporary foster home in Washington, but needs to be moved ASAP, as she needs someone who's willing to work with her on her housetraining. She can't return to her mom's home, as her mom needs to be out of her house by MAY 1.  

Angel's a 16-year-old spayed lab mix, who lived with her doggy friend, Buddy, who also needs a home. She needs a quiet place to spend her golden years. She's visually impaired, but can still see movement/shapes. She's hard of hearing, but can hear clapping. She gets along with cats, other dogs, and kids. Due to her age, well- behaved kids are a must - not ones who'll climb on her and/or pull her tail and/or ears.  Her mom had her pee pad-trained.  A fenced yard's preferred or someone who's willing to take her out on leash.
