A Westerly, RI 02891 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats, rabbits.
1 - 19 of 19 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
Primarily NYC, NY State, but we do adopt to CT, NJ, RI, MA, PA, and occasionally further afield.
Because of the pressing cage space dilemma, we take dogs and cats primarily from Animal Care & Control of NYC. If not for rescue and adoptions, more than the present 24,000 of the current 50,000 animals taken in yearly would not make it out alive. Our goal is to take as many animals as we can who make great family members/companions and give them a second chance. Temperament is our most important criteria. Ideally, all our animals are good w/ people of all ages and other animals (dogs/cats).
Our adoptees are either spayed or neutered, all UTD w/ shots/rabies vax, heartworm negative or feline combo negative, and microchipped. Most of our animals live in foster situations to help them reintegrate back into family life. We feel most animals prefer the company of other animals and hope our adopters consider giving pets to their pets. (We do apply the 2 kitty rule.)
Other times, we courtesy post for people who are obliged to surrender their animals but ask that they continue to foster their companions until appropriate new homes are found to limit the trauma.
Most of our foster animals are in foster homes in or around New York City where they can be seen via appointment w/ the foster family.
We sometimes participate in events sponsored by the Mayor's Alliance of NYC of which we are proud to say we are a participating organization.
Sometimes, unfortunately, our animals are still in the NYC Animal Care and Control facilities for which we desperately seek foster care.
