Dancing For The Paws Fundraiser

Dancing For The Paws

Dancing For The Paws

 

We know how much I love rescuing animals and how important the cause is to me. In my opinion pets are not rescued enough and people look for any and every excuse to purchase their pet because having a rescue pet has some sort of stigma attached to it.  This is so far from the truth!  There are some very awesome people who are having a fundraising event called Dancing for the Paws to help raise donatons for a great rescue called Friend of Freddie Pet Rescue.  Here is a little about them: Friends of Freddie Pet Rescue, located at 200 Middle Country Road Middle Island NY, is a nonprofit pet rescue, dedicated to finding homes for unwanted dogs and puppies. Our adoption process is simple and fast. Application, reference checks, home visit. Our adoption fees (like most rescues) are based on age of dog, breed and medical needs of the dog/puppy that is being adopted. Please visit our “up for adoption album” on our page, it is updated daily. Adoption fees include microchipping, up to date shots, spay/neuter and vet care after you adopt. Come and visit our center and fall in love.

You can join in the fun too on Tuesday November 5th from 6:30-10:30pm.  Your participation can help raise money and awareness for some great animals and a great rescue! You might even find a new best friend!! If you can’t attend please send a donation anyway! You can also bring donations directly to Friends of Freddie Pet Rescue or bring to the event.  Rescues can never get enough food, toys, blankets, newspaper, anything to help!  If you need any more information just ask!!! Please tell your friends and family the show will be great and who doesn’t want to have a good time while helping out a great cause!

Rescue A Furb Today Please!

I love all of the work and effort rescues put into trying to save as many animal lives as they can. They work tirelessly and give so much of their own time, money and love to try to save these animals that most other people could care less about on a daily basis. The least we can do is make sure that we help them help these pets as often as we can. Pass this post, these pictures and links around as much as you possibly can! You never know you might be responsible for saving a life or maybe more!

Frank

Frank

 

 

Frank is a goofy boy! He is a staff and volunteer FAVORITE! Frank is social, polite, and knows how to charm everyone in the room. Frank LOVES to play ball! While out in the yard today, the volunteer said that once she got tired of throwing the ball for Frank, he took over and played fetch with himself! While in the office, Frank was calm and well- behaved, basking in all of the attention he was receiving. He sat down and spun around on his butt to face each person willing to pet him. Frank responded very well to positive reinforcement training, and seemed to really enjoy learning!

 

Ferry Mama

Ferry Mama

 

 

Ferry Mama is beyond beautiful! needs a home ASAP! She is obedient, affectionate and leash trained according to helpers. Everyone that met her says she is an amazing lady and would love to be in a home ASAP! Ferry Mama was found as a stray wondering the streets of Staten Island and would very much like to have a new forever home to be comfortable in.  She loves to snuggle and play and wants to share her love with someone that will love her back.

 

 

 

Chili

Chili

 

Chili is definitely one of the good guys, the kind your Mom refers to as ‘a keeper’. He’s sweet-natured, respectful, extremely friendly and stunningly handsome – just look into those bi-colored eyes and tell me you’re not smitten! Chili is snuggly and happy to see me when leashed up for a walk. Once out in the yard he’s even happier to see his favorite toy, the tennis ball. The only thing Chili enjoys more than tennis balls are his fellow dogs and he’ll literally drop what he’s doing and run over to greet them with a wiggly butt and happy ‘helicopter tail’. Chili keeps a clean den, uses the bathroom promptly once outside.

 

 

Nutmeg

Nutmeg

 

 

Nutmeg is sugar and spice and all things nice! Named for the seed whose color she shares, Nutmeg is a truly stunning beauty. With her soft, short fur and sleek physique she has the look of royalty. Nutmeg isn’t just a pretty face, she’s also an enthusiastic puppy with personality to spare. She really loves to play with her ball and is thrilled to meet other dogs both large and small. Nutmeg is a little timid around people right now and her tail stays tucked much of the time but she accepts petting and soft words and will obediently sit for treats before taking them very gently from the hand. In the street she walks low and very fast, the walk of a scared young dog. Her new family will need to help Nutmeg learn that the outside world is not going to hurt her and it’s OK to move at a slower pace but with time and love she will get there.

Urgent Rescues For February

There is never a shortage for poor pets that need to be saved. Please help me find these pooches their new homes. I cannot stand the thought of these little babies being put down for no reason other than space. It isn’t right and they don’t deserve it.  My motto has always been adopt don’t shop! Soo many animals need good homes and there are plenty to go around.  Please help find these great animals a good home and share their info where ever you can.

Princess

Princess

 

 

Princess is just a baby only 6 months old! She is already on the urgent list! She could be put down any minute! She doesn’t deserve this. Please help save her life and share share share her photo and information before it is too late!!!

 

 

Philly

Philly

 

 

 

Philly was abandoned! Poor guy is 6 years old and someone just decided they didn’t need him anymore and now he is probably going to be put down. Look at that face! Please help us save his life so that he doesn’t get put down. He is well behaved and sweet!

 

Molly

Molly

 

 

 

Molly is only one year of age, has the most lovely and lively eyes that spark in a light reddish marble cake coat. Molly is very playful. She loves running after the ball that she does not guard but not truly retrieves. She is loving and willing to learn and can be a great family dog. She seems to like other dogs that she meets with a high or low tail. She is very affectionate and is happy to be on the lap for hugs and kisses.

 

 

Pebbles

Pebbles

 

 

Pebbles  has a wonderful coco color coat that is nice and shiny her weight is perfect for her size.  Pebbles was pretty well taken care of where she lived before.  She is a friendly girl but respect her boundaries.  She loves other people and dogs. Pebbles appears to be  house trained too! She  knows how to sit when asked, and loves treats. Cuddling with a human is one of my favorite things to do, so I was happy to jump up on the park bench with the lady and cuddle with her.

Rescue A Pet to Give Them Something To Be Thankful For

I cannot stress how important it is to rescue an animal if you can. These poor animals aren’t responsible for their situations and shouldn’t have to suffer for human unkindness. It is our duty as citizens of the planet to care for and appreciate living things. Please do what you can to help because these poor babies could lose their lives and have no one but us to protect them.  All of my animals are rescues and I cannot tell you how it warms my heart to see them so happy and cared for.  Too many animals are put down for no reason other than no one wants them.  Please help save a life today! These animals deserve to be loved just as much as any store bought dog.

My name is PATCHES. My Animal ID # is A0950348. I am a female white and brown brindle pit bull mix. The shelter thinks I am about 2 YEARS. Who does that cute face belong to? Look at that tail wagging non stop..and that wiggly body….Her eyes look like two clear jewels. Such a small girl and what a nice coat… A lovely girl, all excited to see a potential caretaker, a friend she can walk and spend time with. I open her door and Patches thinks she can leave without a leash….She is so thrilled to go out. Patches is quite good on the leash, though, no jumping, no rope grabbing, barely pulling at times and very nice with the other dogs we met. She relieves herself as soon as we leave the care center, making me think that she might be house trained. Patches is very playful and friendly. She runs after the ball, plays tag and is as happy as a clam coming on my lap for hugs and kisses. Indeed, Patches is full of life, fun to be with and a most affectionate girl. Come and meet Patches at the Manhattan Care Center. The “Little Rascal” is waiting for you.

 

 

 

My name is JACK. My Animal ID # is A0950242. I am a male br brindle and white pit bull mix. The shelter thinks I am about 4 YEARS old. Jack pulls on the leash and was excited but very interested in interacting with handler during assessment – jumped up, licked hands and face. He was excited during some of the handling items, but had soft body language. He engages in play, loose body, wags tail, mouth is open. He was stiff and cannot be pushed out of the food bowl, but did not growl, snap or bite. Jack was not interested in toys or rawhides and rushed in quickly during the dog-dog test, but showed no aggression. This face just say it all!!! Make Jack happy and give him his forever home today!!

 

 

My name is NICE. My Animal ID # is A0949605. I am a female black and white pit bull mix. The shelter thinks I am about 3 YEARS old. Nice is a splendid and noble female. She has been very well cared for by her owner who is too ill to have a pet and this is why beautiful Nice is with us at the Manhattan Care Center. Nice is clearly lost and at first, did not want to have anything to do with us volunteers. She would act aloof and very timid. She wants to come out of her kennel though as she is a clean girl and seems house trained. She needs some exercise too. She pulls a tiny bit on the leash and always aims for the gate leading to the street. She wants to go home clearly. She is very hand shy and it takes some time to see a positive reaction to caresses and sweet talks. She comes to sit closer and closer when coaxed. Nice indeed, is more comfortable with someone she knows. Nice is a one man (woman) dog but she could learn, with time, to be a family dog. Nice is indeed a good dog with a sensitive soul. Nice will be able to love again. She just needs to be given a chance.

 

 

My name is IVORY. My Animal ID # is A0950481. I am a female cream pit bull mix. The shelter thinks I am about 8 YEARS old. Beautiful Ivory sits so quietly in her kennel, patiently watching and waiting. I’m not sure she wants my attention but when I offer a treat and she gently mouths it from my hand I know that she is waiting for a friend. At first Ivory shys away when I go to pet her but a few minutes into our walk her tail is wagging as I rub her side. Later, I crouch to gently caress her face and she seems to smile at me with blissed out squinty-eyes. Ivory is a stunning blond and her good looks (and those perky ears!) garner a lot of compliments from passers-by. When they approach to pet her she responds with soft tail wags and also seems pleased to see other dogs in the park. Ivory appears to be house trained and though she needs some leash training, she will sit for treats and is quite easy to handle. Ivory is a gentle soul looking for her soul mate, that special person who will move at her pace, giving her the time and affection she needs to blossom into her best self. Someone give this beautiful girl a home ASASP!

 

 

My name is NICE. My Animal ID # is A0949813. I am a male br tiger and brown mastiff mix. The shelter thinks I am about 7 YEARS old. Nice is quite an imposing male at 81lbs but calm as a clam. He has beautiful golden eyes and such a soft gaze. He is gentle and grateful for affection. He is obedient and trusting. He appears to appreciate attention. Nice is a beautiful gentle soul. He and Nina (his “sister”) are loving and very deserving of a caring home. They were both very neglected and want help to feel and look better. Help save them before it is too late for them.

 

 

 

My name is SANDY. My Animal ID # is A0950217. I am a female brown and white pit bull mix. The shelter thinks I am about 1 YEAR 6 MONTHS old. Sandy is an excited little girl that really just wants to go out and play. She likes company and is good on walks and is house trained. Sandy is a young dog who has already been a mother. Her coat is flawless but dull and her nutrition might not have been optimal. She likes treats that she takes politely from the hand. Sandy meets other dogs with a happy tail and a friendly demeanor. She likes to be approached by people too and as we sit in the yard, she settles very close petting sessions and some loving. She definitely knows what a ball is, runs after it but prefers to keep it in her mouth while chewing it. Sandy is a sweet girl, who seems to like people and dogs alike. She might prefer to keep her belongings for herself and will have to learn, that in a house of plenty, there is no need to protect her stuff. Sandy is at the Manhattan Care Center, hoping for a better life and the start of a new forever friendship with you. Sandy could be the dog you have always wanted!! Check her out please!!

Rescue-A-Pet 02.24.12

Here are more precious pooches that want nothing more but a safe loving place to call home. You know you could be that person. There is a reason why dogs are called man’s best friend, because they will be. You can make yourself and an innocent animal happy and keep them from being killed for no reason other than they are homeless.

Max

Max

MAX(A0913273)~♥~MAX~♥~Another surrender due to landlord issues! Unfortunately, Max’s former owner must have been in a hurry because he didn’t fill out the form which would tell us important information about Max. From what we can piece together, Max was easy to handle during his exam but didn’t stand for it. That either means he was tired OR being submissive. He’s obviously handsome although a little overweight. We know he’s great on a leash during his walks. We know we have to get him OUT of there before he gets sick or worse. Go see Max at SIACC and find out about him for yourself♥

MARLBORO

Marlboro

 

MARLBORO (A0924474) SCARED OLDER BROTHER  Marlboro was brought in to the shelter with his younger sister Island and younger brother Coney after their owner was arrested. Looking at the state of Marlboro the owner should be more than arrested. Marlboro is seven years old, the oldest of the bunch, is severely emaciated and terribly neglected. Marlboro is so scared and out of sorts he did not do well on his initial exam. Do you blame him? He left one bad situation only to end up in a worse one. Marlboro needs someone who he can trust and let his guard down to. He has not had that yet in his short life. Won’t you be the one that will show Marlboro that all people aren’t bad? Please start contacting rescues now. Because the shelter doesn’t need an excuse to end a life, and with a negative evaluation Marlboro is an easy target.

Marcus

Marcus

 

MARCUS (A0924215)**~~MARCUS~~**PERFECT PUP ALERT!!!! Marcus aced his evaluation with all 1′s and is a perfect gentleman. If you’ve never had a dog before, and have always wanted to rescue one, Marcus is your man! Everyone you pass on the street will marvel at his impeccable manners and beautiful brown and white coat as he struts by your side. Marcus deserves that. He deserves a great home with no worries. Can you help him tonight? Can we PLEASE see justice for this sweet boy? Click on his photo for info to foster or adopt.

LULU(A0923894) ~♥~LULU~♥~While Lulu’s former owner’s are settling into their new home, Lulu is sitting in a cage at MACC. She received an average rating on her behavior eval which is absolutely wonderful! She’s an affectionate and well trained girl. Lulu has become a volunteer favorite due to her sweet and easygoing ways. The thought of Lulu happily leaving her cage tomorrow morning thinking she’s simply going for a walk is sickening. Lulu doesn’t know where they will be taking her, but we do. Save Lulu tonight, please

Lixby

Lixby

 

LIXBY (A0923871) Lixby was abandoned by her owner only 6 days ago & now on the kill list for EARLY TOMORROW MORNING. She just lost all that she has ever known & loved. This sweet girl is terribly scared at the shelter, but she still managed to get great scores on her behavior evaluation. She did especially well with the helper dog & showed no aggression at all. Please don’t let Lixby die tomorrow, she has so much to offer. Just look at that sweet face begging you to pick her & take her home with you. Please adopt Lixby from the Brooklyn shelter or click on her picture & ask for help on her thread. Hurry..she’s waiting for you.

Will you be that special person? Please adopt TAZZ directly from Brooklyn or click on his picture and get help if you wish to foster.

Foster & Rescue For the Holiday’s

Animal Foster & Rescue

Animal Foster & Rescue

 

 

 

I know many of you have probably noticed my focusing on helping rescue animals lately. I have recently started working with some people who really focus on trying to keep innocent animals from getting euthanized due to lack of space in shelters and at ACC’s (Animal Care & Control). This is an issue that has always been close to my heart as both of my pooches are rescues one from NYCACC. It is no question to me that these animals need saving. It breaks my heart when I see things like Gone But Not Forgotten folders with images of hundreds of dogs that have been put to sleep for no reason other than there is no where else to put them.
The holiday’s are coming up and I ask that maybe you can find it in your heart to help those that cannot help themselves. Even if you cannot adopt a pet you can foster and help find them a good home! This is the season of giving sooo instead of spending money on presents spend your time and love on a pet that would other wise probably be put to sleep. Even if you have other pets or are apprehensive you can find a pet best suited to you.
If you can or want to adopt think of all of the benefits adoption has. You don’t spend thousands of dollars on a 3lb pooch that was bred with its own parents who will probably only last a few years because of the medical issues inbreeding causes in animals. If you rescue you give a pet a chance to have a safe and loving home which all animals deserve. You will feel better about yourself and your decision everyday you look in to your rescues eyes. I promise you they appreciate it and will love you just as much for keeping them safe.
I thank my pooches everyday for finding me and saving me because without them and the experiences they having given me I would definitely be without. I urge all of you who read my blog or who just plain love animals to seriously consider fostering or adopting this season. You won’t regret it!
If you are interested and are in the NY area click here and bring home your new best friend today!! If you aren’t in the area you can google your local ACC and find out their requirements.
If you have rescued your pet please tell us your story and we will post it on our blog so everyone gets a chance to feel the love!!

Donation Parties

Little Shelter Rescue

 

 

I went to a friends house last weekend who was having a sort of party extravaganza and all that she required was that each attendee bring something for a local shelter called Little Shelter that she rescued her dogs from. She invited her other friends who did Avon, Scentsy, 31 gifts, passion parties, and someone who made amazing cake truffles. She made a ton of food and had drinks galore lol (the best way to get tons of donates is to get and keep everyone tipsy). The event was a hit and there was plenty to donate. It made me think how can I get this to spread to other areas and get people do to this regularly.
Rescues need all of the help they can get and no one wants to see happy healthy animals put down. It is a horrible process that even has me tearing up just writing about it. After seeing the success of this party I think everyone should do it for any event you have. Go to a dollar store if you have to to purchase supplies. You can ask for rescue donations at birthday parties, weddings (I have seen it on Tori & Deans wedding show), holiday parties, or even do what my friend did and invite other hostesses who sell their own merchandise to bring in a larger crowd.
Animal rescuing is something so near and dear to my heart. My first rescue Skye was in such a horrible state when I adopted her and 10 years and 3 additional rescues later she is healthy happy and in the most loving home ever. She is the sweetest dog even after what she had to suffer for the first year 1/2 of her life. Every dog deserves that chance.
If you throw a donation party post pictures on our Facebook page and comment under this post which shelter the donations went to after you have donated and I will send you something awesomely green!
