UPDATE: 02/25/2016

Both Caraway & Za’atar  were adopted today and thankfully the family knew to keep them together. They were family, and their new family kept them as such which is very exciting to us. Again, two more adopted pets less than a month after we featured them in our Rescue Me section, and more for North Shore Animal League. Keeping checking back as there’ll always be more great pets to adopt.

Thanks to our friends over at North Shore Animal League America we have an extra special feature for our weekly spotlight on pet adoption! As you may know, we have been partnering up with North Shore for the past few months to help raise awareness for pet adoption and rescue. Fortunately, our joint efforts have been making a difference, as the majority of the pets that have been presented on our site have gotten adopted into the loving homes they deserve.

North Shore Animal League America is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. For over 70 years, North Shore has been rescuing animals and advocating their proper care. Since opening in 1944, the organization has saved the lives of over 1,000,000 cats, dogs, kittens and puppies.

The shelter is located in Port Washington, New York, where it facilitates animal rescue and adoptions, as well as plays a lead role in the no-kill movement. North Shore Animal League America continues to innovate better and more sustainable ways to care for pets, in order to create a brighter future for animals everywhere.

With their vision, “To put an end to animal cruelty and euthanasia and to create a world in which all companion animals find compassionate, permanent homes.” North Shore Animal League America continues to make a positive difference in the lives of countless animals.

So what makes this week’s “Rescue Me “article so special? It’s none other than the cuddly duo known as Caraway and Za’atar!

Both 5 years old, these two domestic kitties were rescued by North Shore from the New York Tri-State area and have been inseparable ever since. Caraway is a female dilute calico with unique markings that are just as special as her piercing green eyes. Meanwhile, Za’atar is a handsome, large male tabby cat that has an incredibly affectionate personality. While these two share plenty of love and cuddles amongst one another, they undoubtedly have plenty more to share with their new family as well.

Since these two have relatively calm demeanors, North Shore’s staff believes they would do best in a more mature family home – specifically, the staff is recommending a family with kids 8+ years old. Even at 8+ years old children can learn responsibility, value for life, socialization and help build their self-esteem by caring for pets – such as this furry duo. Meanwhile, they can also provide ample companionship to adults and seniors and improve their feelings of self-worth. Taking care of them can also help provide a sense of purpose for their owners.

It has been said that pet owners smile more, laugh more and form special friendships with other animal owners and lovers. Both Caraway and Za’atar will bring these improvements to his new owners’ lives and help them lead a more joyful life.

Cats are extremely versatile and adaptable animals, making them the perfect pet option for almost every household. As mainly independent animals, cats are often low maintenance and are perfect for those who live an active and busy lifestyle who may not be able to take on the responsibility that is associated with owning a dog.

Jennifer Workman, the Feline Behaviorist at North Shore Animal League America notes, “These two are such great company, very quiet and loving. Caraway is [a] more laid back cat and Za’atar is a social butterfly and will purr the minute you start petting him and giving him scratches.”

Moreover, if you are looking for some friends to hang out with in bed on a Sunday morning or to have some fun playtime with – look no further. Caraway and Za’atar love to catch up on their Zzzz’s, but also won’t pass up the chance to play with the nearest mouse toy. Both of these adorable kitties are ready to find their forever home, where they will undoubtedly adjust quickly with just a little patience, care and of course – love!

Caraway – ADOPTION #: D48456

Za’atar – ADOPTION #: D48455

If you are the one to give Caraway & Za’atar a much better life than she previously knew, please contact Dorit Shani at DoritS@animalleague.org for more information.

Still Hoping For A Great Home:

meet tennessee nsalas latest pet ready 2016 adopt me (1)With all of your help we have been able to support North Shore Animal League America’s admirable efforts and aid in finding homes for numerous pets over the past few months. However, there are still plenty deserving animals at the shelter that are anxiously awaiting a new home and we are happy to continue to do our part in helping spread the word.

Through our teaming up with North Shore Animal League America, Movie TV Tech Geeks features an adoptable pet every week that is looking for a new family to share its love. By showing off some of the deserving animals, we hope to raise awareness for pet adoption and give as many pets a happy ending as we possibly can.

North Shore Animal League America, which is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. Since 1944, the organization has strived towards achieving its ultimate vision: “To put an end to animal cruelty and euthanasia and to create a world in which all companion animals find compassionate permanent homes.”

To date, North Shore has helped find homes for over 1,000,000 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. With their main headquarters in Port Washington, New York, North Shore provides crucial resources such as a pet adoption center, a pet health center that offers affordable veterinary care and much more.

meet tennessee nsalas latest pet ready 2016 adopt me (2)This week are overjoyed to introduce Tennessee, a lovable boy who is ready to find his forever home.

Tennessee is a handsome Lab-Terrier mix, which was rescued from a municipal shelter in none other than Tennessee! At 5 and half years old, he has both a playful and calm spirit. He loves to devote his time to letting out some energy while exploring the outdoors (such as at dog parks), as well as lounging around in his cage on a comfy blanket.

Stemming from his Labrador roots, it is not surprising that Tennessee has an infectious spirit and lively energy. Labs are known for their love of activity, exploring and being one of the best companions you could ask for on your daily walks/runs.

Fortunately, Labs are also commonly very easy to train. They often show a strong desire to please their owners and will listen to commands if it means they will earn some love and affection (and maybe even a few treats). This is shown in the fact that Tennessee has already been housebroken (meaning he knows to do his business outside). However, this particular breed is also notorious for being young at heart throughout their life, which is why North Shore recommends that Tennessee’s new owners put some time into reestablishing proper leash manners to ensure that he is reminded what is expected of him when exploring the great outdoors.

Although he can sometimes exude a relatively quiet, shy disposition, Tennessee is always up for some head rubs and attention from the closest two-legged friend he can find. Evidently, he appreciates the feeling of love and affection from those around him and undoubtedly returns the favor with his caring personality.

Ronald Martorelli, the Quality Care Manager at North Shore Animal League America notes, “Tennessee loves to play and jump like a puppy. He greets everyone with a smile and some hops! He is already housebroken and loves going on walks, but will need to learn some extra leash manners.”

While residing at the shelter, Tennessee has shown himself to be a friendly and social animal that gets along with other pups. However, the staff at North Shore recommends that owners bring in their current dog(s) to meet Tennessee before taking him home to join their family.

Furthermore, Tennessee has a spirit and light that will instantly make you fall in love. He will bring plenty of joy into the lives of his new family for years to come.

meet chase animal league america 2015 adopt me

MEET CHASE:

Chase is an adorable, shorthaired domestic cat. She has a raincloud-like gray coat that has a glossy effect due to the hints of silver within her fur. Although she is a mature 11-year-old cat, she has plenty of years of love and joy to give to her new family. She has striking green-yellow eyes that sit right above her round, pronounced cheeks – which you will fall in love with.

Her affectionate personality is further demonstrated in her loyalty to the North Shore staff and her constant desire to snuggle up on your lap. She can often be found in North Shore Animal League America’s back offices, where she is hanging out with her two-legged friends. She loves to walk around from office to office, giving each staff member their own greeting and finding the perfect place for herself to settle down and take a nap. Thus, Chase is the perfect warm and loving addition to your family as we enter the cold, dark winter season.

The Shelter director of North Shore Animal League America, Christina Travalja, notes, “Chase is such a sweet girl with a lot of personality. When you pet her, she lets out the cutest, high pitched meow and she loves giving head butts.”

With her mix of infectious, loving personality, Chase is an ideal friend for people of all ages. She can help children learn responsibility, value for life, socialization and help build their self-esteem. Meanwhile, she can also provide ample companionship to adults and seniors and improve their feelings of self-worth. Taking care of her can also help provide a sense of purpose for her owners.

It has been said that pet owners smile more, laugh more and form special friendships with other animal owners and lovers. Undoubtedly, Chase will bring these improvements to her new owners’ lives and help them lead a more joyful life.

Cats are extremely versatile and adaptable animals, making them the perfect pet option for almost every household. As mainly independent animals, cats are often low maintenance and are perfect for those who live an active and busy lifestyle who may not be able to take on the responsibility that is associated with owning a dog.

Being an adult cat, Chase is well behaved and is just looking for a family to find comfort with. She is the ideal pet for an adopter looking for a warm, furry companion to snuggle on their lap. Although she is relatively low-maintenance, Chase is currently on a strict diet to even out her weight.

Chase, like many of their cats available for adoption, is a perfect addition to a variety of households and family dynamics. She is ready to find her new home and share her endless amounts of affection with her new family.

cuervo adoptable dog movie tv tech geeks

We are pleased to present Cuervo, the latest dog that is looking for a new home.

Cuervo is a large and goofy Lab mix. He is a mature, ten years young dog, who still loves to have fun, play with his favorite toys and go on regular outings. He is in need of a new owner who can be a strong leader in his life, and can benefit from some loving companionship.

Labrador Retrievers, also known as Labs, were initially bred to be both friendly and useful work dogs. Historically, they were employed as fisherman’s helpers, as they were notably intelligent, fast learning and obedient. Nowadays, Labs are often seen as companions to hunters, aid dogs for those with a disability and search and rescue dogs.

Additionally, due to their sweet nature and warmth, Labs are frequently utilized as therapy dogs. They can be seen visiting homes for the elderly and hospitals. Thus, it is not surprising that many owners liken their Labs to that of an angel. Their warmth and friendship have allowed Labs to become the most registered breed with the American Kennel Club.

The staff at North Shore Animal League America notes that Cuervo gets along well with some dogs, but on occasion he can be picky. Thus, they recommend that you set up a meet and greet with Cuervo and your current furry pals if you are hoping to add him to your pack.

Jessica Perez, the Groomer and Cuervo’s buddy at North Shore explains, “Cuervo is one of the most loyal dogs I’ve met in my life. Once he gets to know you, he just wants to be by your side at all times.”

Furthermore, Cuervo is a handsome, loveable dog that is looking for his forever home. Cuervo deserves a family that he can provide his remarkable companionship to and share his infectious joy and warmth.

meet rueben NSALA’s Latest Pet Ready To Be AdoptAlthough Rueben is an adorable boy with a joyful personality, he unfortunately, has endured some tough situations in his past. Rueben was rescued by North Shore from a mid-western puppy mill. For those of you who are unfamiliar with puppy mill facilities, they are establishments that use intensive and often inhumane means to breed dogs that will eventually be sold off to pet stores. Dogs raised and living in these mills are subjected to cruel treatment that can often negatively affect the development of their personalities and even physical stature. Fortunately, North Shore was able to step in and save Rueben, along with countless other dogs, from the disturbing environment they had been living in.

Little Rueben is a handsome boxer mix. Boxers are known for their intelligence and playful energy. They often form strong bonds with their owners, and therefore, prefer to play with their immediate family, rather than with strangers. It is noted that as long as they are given plenty of opportunities to let out their energy, boxers can thrive in a range of housing situations, from large estates to small city apartments.

Male boxers usually grow to about 22-26 inches and weigh from 65 to 70 pounds. They have distinctive square heads and folded ears. Their fur coat is short and sheds light to moderately. Therefore, they are fairly easy to keep groomed, as they only need to be brushed and bathed when dirty or when there is a notable build-up of their natural oils in their fur. They are known for their alert expression, which can make it seem like they are watching for something even when they are at rest.

Like most boxers, Rueben has a lovable spirit. However, it is noted by the staff that he does have a relatively quiet and docile demeanor. At 9 years old, Rueben loves to just relax and can often be found lounging around on his large comfy bed at the shelter. However, he also would love to accompany you on walks around the park or the neighborhood.

Rueben is a very well mannered pup, which gets along with most other animals. Although he loves to make friends, it is recommended that potential adopters bring in their current dog(s) to meet Rueben in advance. Being the sweet boy he is, Rueben would also most likely do well in a household that has cats.

Rosie Tombolo, the Kennel Manager at North Shore Animal League American notes, “this lovable boy needs extra love but with patience and proper care he will acclimate and prosper just fine in his new home.”

Furthermore, Rueben is just looking for a forever home that can offer the love and care that he deserves and has been waiting for his whole life. Undoubtedly, he will create a very special bond with his new owners to show his appreciation and newfound comfort.

Rueben – Adoption #: PM5623

If you are the one to give Rueben a much better life than she previously knew, please contact Kennel Manager, Kristie Delekta atkristied@animalleague.org  for more information.
