My story

Barkley is a 2 1/2-year old, 100 lbs Yellow lab mix.  He is being fostered in Medford, NY. This handsome guy is a big fluffy gentle giant.  He is shy at first, but once he gets used to you he is a tail wagging best friend.  Barkley is a big guy but still has puppy energy at times and would do best in a home with medium to larger dogs.  He has gotten along with his foster sister, but he can get a little overwhelming since she is a smaller dog. He is completely house trained and would do best with people who are home a lot during the day and have a bigger dog. No young kids because of his size.  Barkley is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

The adoption fee is $500.  We require a fully fenced yard.  We do not adopt to home with an invisible/electric fence because it is not as safe for the dog.

More about this rescue

Gimme Shelter Animal Rescue is a 501c3 nonprofit organization based on Long Island NY. We rescue dogs and puppies who are at risk of being euthanized in high-kill facilities across the South. Every animal we rescue is quarantined where they get vaccinated and given any medical attention needed to get them healthy. We then transport the animals up to NY where they go into our wonderful foster homes until we find them all pre screened loving forever homes. We will adopt out-of-state on a case by case basis, including, but not limited to, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania.
Our goal is to find the best possible homes for our animals, to ensure a life-long loving commitment. We are dedicated to the well-being of our animals. One by One until there are none!
