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!!
