Sophie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.

Sophie's Story...
Sophie is a Maltese and she only has one eye. She lost the other one because she is a little over ambitious when she meets other animals and one day, she crossed paths with a cat that was just not interested. The cat scratched her eye pretty bad, to the point that we could not save it. She healed in almost no time and does not seem to be bothered at all by it. She is perky and friendly and a real sweetheart. Her birthday is May 15, 2008.

We really appreciate your wanting to give a shelter animal a home and encourage you to search for just the right pet.

FOR APPLICATION, please visit http://humanesocietyny.org/adoptions/ and download then email it to sandra.hsny@verizon.net, fax it to (212) 752-2803 or bring it in to the adoption center.

The Humane Society is a no-kill shelter. Our on-site clinic and staff of skilled Veterinarians looks after the health and well-being of every animal here. We offer FREE Vet care for the first 3 weeks after adoption. We also have a great adoption matchmaker who will gladly take your profile and match you or your pet with just the right cat or dog companion. Please feel free to submit your application!

If you'd like to sponsor this dog, please email sandra.hsny@verizon.net. You can give as much or as little as you like. Your donation is tax deductible. Thank you and our furry ones thank you.

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

Sophie, 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.
