Petunia's Story...
Petunia is so sweet! Always wants to be by someone's side. She is definitely seeking someone to bond with full-time. She gets along with everyone although she does have a sassy side that shows up once in a while. Don't we all have our moments though?! She's an absolute doll and a recovering breast tumor survivor. She's been through quite a bit in the past couple months and is looking at a fresh, optimistic start with a new forever home. Please note: It's difficult to take a great photo of her because her tail is always wagging so she wont sit still long enough! She is a Maltese mix and was born March 14, 2007.

Each and every animal here is very special to us. We are dedicated to finding each one just the right home. So for some cats and dogs, that means a much longer stay - as sometimes they are not as outgoing, pretty or have as perfect manners as they could. And because we don't "dispose" of them for this, our cost for keeping them healthy and becoming better companions is high.

Our one and only location is:
306 East 59th Street (between 1st & 2nd Avenue) in Manhattan.
Our adoption hours are 7 days a week, 10:30AM - 4:00PM.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Petunia, a New York Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in New York, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in New York.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in New York already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a New York breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maltese breeders who help with Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in New York paves the way for another one to be saved.
