Tiny, 7 lb. Benjamin (a.k.a. Benny, or Benji), a timid little tan and white Chihuahua mix, was found by PAWS on the to be destroyed list at Manhattan ACC a few months back. He came in and was emaciated and shaking, but with some loving and meals is a real delight.  His foster mom says he is still very puppy-ish, although his estimated age is two.   He is crate trained, but wants to be where he can see his new human and be nearby at night.  He is a real love and enjoys attention and affection.  He has been neutered and microchipped, and is up to date with shots. He is great with other dogs, cats and children.

Sweet Benny is looking for someone gentle to love him forever.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a committee to screen all applicants carefully. There is a pre-adoption form to fill out and an adoption agreement. The fee to adopt cats is $150.00 the fee to adopt dogs is $250.00.
Kittens are never adopted alone, there has to be another cat in the household, or 2 have to go together, screens are a must. Pets have to sleep with the family, not separated. Yards have to have a 6 foot fence and dogs have to be leashed at all times, unless in a safe comtrolled area. All our animals are microchipped.
