We are so excited to feature an adorable kitten in this week’s “Adopt Me” article. As many of our loyal readers know, we have been teamed up with North Shore Animal League America for over a year. With North Shore Animal League America’s support, we have been able to help find homes for countless animals throughout the duration of our partnership. Every week we here at Movie TV Tech Geeks shine a light on an adoptable pet – cat or dog – that is anxiously waiting to be placed in their forever home.

Now it is time to introduce…Connor!
Just 4 months old, Connor is a striking young kitten with bright yellow-green eyes. He is a shorthaired domestic tabby cat with some white markings on his face and chest. Connor was fortunate enough to be rescued by North Shore from the New York Tri-State area. With all of the adapting he has had to do in the first few months of his life, Connor is a bit shy when first being introduced to new people and places. However, with a bit of time, love and patience, he will undoubtedly open up and embrace his true playful, loving self.
Due to his initially shy demeanor, Connor would be an ideal addition to a family with children (if any) who are older. With that being said, he can undoubtedly help mature children learn responsibility, value for life, socialization and help build their self-esteem. Meanwhile, he can also provide ample companionship to adults and seniors and improve their feelings of self-worth. Taking care of him can also help provide a sense of purpose for his owners.
It has been said that pet owners smile more, laugh more and form special friendships with other animal owners and lovers. Connor will surely 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.
Rosie Tombolo, the Kennel Manager at North Shore Animal League America notes, “When you gain Connor’s trust, he will gladly accept chin rubs and will roll over for belly rubs.”
In addition to going to a family comprised of older individuals, the staff at North Shore also believes that Connor would do well in a home that already has a four-legged friend wandering about. They feel that this may help him when it comes to adapting and feeling more comfortable in his new home.
If you are interested in adopting Connor, please email Dorit Shani at DoritS@animalleague.org.

At just 8 months old, Mahoney is a Shar-Pei/Cattle dog mix. He was fortunate enough to be rescued by North Shore Animal League America from a municipal shelter in Arkansas. Although he is still very young, he has already shown to be a bright pup. In fact, he already responds to basic commands and performs even better when treats are involved.
The Shar-Pei breed is known for being loyal to their handlers. They love to spend their time running, walking, playing, or even just hanging out on the sofa for the day with the ones they love. However, while they may be notably loyal when it comes to their family, Shar-Peis still [generally] maintain a friendly demeanor when meeting new people/animals.
In terms of caring for a Shar-Pei, they are noted as one of the easier dog breeds to physically maintain. They have short fur that needs very minimal brushing and washing. Mahoney’s other breed, Cattle dog, is also known for being low maintenance when it comes to grooming and physical upkeep.
As demonstrated by Mahoney’s ability to perform basic commands at such a young age, Shar-Peis are highly trainable. Most owners of the breed say that it takes very little time to get them housebroken.
Since Mahoney is still considered to be a puppy, he definitely expends a youthful energy. Around the North Shore shelter he is always wandering about with his tail wagging and a big smile on his face.
Rosie Tombolo, the Kennel Manager at North Shore Animal League America notes, “Mahoney’s tail never stops wagging. He has such a happy disposition and loves getting belly rubs, treats and hugs from his two-legged friends.”
North Shore is looking for a family who has the time to work with Mahoney, teaching him how to behave as he matures into a full-grown dog. Since he is rather rambunctious, the family would need to have some patience and be able to provide the leadership that Mahoney needs. The staff at North Shore believes that Mahoney would do best in a home with children (if any) who are over the age of 12. In addition, they also believe that he would be okay with having another four-legged playmate in his family. It is suggested that any interested adopters who currently have dog(s) bring them in, as it is best to ensure that Mahoney meshes well with his potential future four-legged roommates.
Moreover, Mahoney has an infectious joy that will bring plenty of happiness and light into any [suitable] family that opens their doors and hearts to him.
If you are interested in adopting Mahoney, please e-mail Rachael Rudman at RachaelR@animalleague.org.

Our latest feature, Leeza, is an adorable 1-year-old domestic shorthaired Tabby cat. She was rescued by North Shore from the New York Tri-State Area alongside a whole litter of kittens, however she is the last of the bunch to still be looking for a home. While Leeza is a fairly shy kitty at first, she warms up to people quickly once she gets to know them and she becomes comfortable with her surroundings.

Back in July we featured 5-year-old Calypso, a striking grey-toned shorthaired domestic Tabby cat. While staying at the shelter, Calypso has made herself known for her attentiveness and infectious energy. She can often be heard announcing her arrival into a room and seen chasing her favorite play toys.

Pom-Pom, who like Calypso was also featured in July, is a young shorthaired black domestic cat. Just over a year old, Pom-Pom has made his love for ear scratches and cat treats well known around the shelter. He is the perfect companion, as he loves to be playful and have fun, but he also appreciates a quiet afternoon spent purring away on someone’s lap.
If you have had cats previously and are interested in adopting Pom-Pom, please send an inquiry e-mail toDoritS@animalleague.org.

Way back in February we introduced our readers to Louie, a 9-year-old Havanese-Papillion mix. Louie came from a tough upbringing, as North Shore saved him from a puppy mill. However despite his past, Louie is an incredibly adaptable pup. He has a sweet personality and is ready to be placed in a warm, loving home.
f you are the one to give Louie a much better life than she previously knew, please contact Kristie Delekta at Kristied@animalleague.org for more information.

At the end of 2015 we featured an adorable pup named Cuervo. He is a 10-year-old Lab mix, who has a goofy and loving personality. The staff at North Shore has previously commented on how loyal Cuervo is, as once he gets to know someone he is always by their side. His warm demeanor and ear-to-ear grin will surely be the perfect addition to any suitable household.

Moreover, while we have come across great success with our “Adopt Me” page so far, we are hopeful that we can continue to positively impact the lives of even more deserving animals. The cats and dogs we feature – like most pets in shelters – have so much love and light within them. Through their various adversities, these pets have developed an unwavering appreciation for being provided with the warmth, care and attention they should have always received. Welcoming a rescue animal into your home will not only change the life of the animal [for the better], but it will likely end up changing yours [for the better] as well.
