Meet Baxter. This gorgeous, totally housebroken, 2-year-hold foxhound/shepherd mix was dropped off at the kill shelter by his family when they had a child. But despite those
circumstances, Baxter managed to get the best behavior rating
possible and become a volunteer favorite while at the shelter.
Unfortunately he was soon placed on the kill list due to lack of space at the overcrowded
Baxter is such an affectionate, happy and positive boy that we had to rescue
him. Now Baxter needs a forever home.
Baxter gives lots of kisses, and loves to play with his toys. He weighs about 65 pounds and needs a good amount of exercise and preferably a fenced in yard to run and play in,
since he is a young dog. He would be a great running partner! Baxter knows
basic commands like sit and leave it, and is neutered and up-to-date on routine
shots. Won't you consider giving this adorable puppy a forever home for the

Rescue Group Info...
New Yorkers for Companion Animals is a small, Not-for-Profit animal rescue and placement organization located in Manhattan. Most of our animals are rescued from the animal control shelter (AC&C) of New York City. We keep them in foster homes until adopted. We are not a formal shelter. We do not euthanize animals except in extreme cases of untreatable illness.
Because we are "no kill" and because we do not have a shelter, we cannot take in every animal without a home. We are extremely limited in how many animals we can accept. Such depends entirely upon availablity of foster volunteers and how quickly foster animals are able to be adopted.
It is best to call us if interested in an animal we have for adoption. (212) 427-8273. Because our animals are either in foster homes or boarding situations, it is necessary to set up an appointment to see them. We evaluate our animals for both health and temperament and guarantee a happy adoption or we take the animal back.
Almost all of our animals are already spayed and neutered (exception, small kittens). All have had shots and cats are tested for Leukemia and FIV. We seek people who have a good track record of responsible care of animals. We work with an adoption contract. The contract guarantees that, if for any reason an adoption does not work out, we will take the animal back. We do have standard adoption fees to try and cover some of our expenses. $100.00 for cats. $125.00 for dogs.
Tri-State: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut. We also do adoptions to other states, but the people have to come to New York City.
