meet cuervo animal league america 2015 imagesAs of this week, we’re proud to announce that Movie TV Tech Geeks teaming up with North Shore Animal League America has proven to be more successful that we ever thought possible. Out of the nine pets that we’ve featured thus far, six have found good homes. We’re so happy to have an impact, and we want to thank all of our readers for getting the word out about our ‘Rescue Me’ section. Please keep sharing each of our featured adoptable pets every week so we can keep this up.

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 home. 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. Four of the adoptable pets that we’ve featured on our site have found great homes, and we are hoping to continue that trend.

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.

Cuervo is a large and goofy Lab mix. He is a mature, 10 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 has allowed Labs to become the most registered breed with the American Kennel Club.

Not only is this particular breed smart and good at following orders, and they are also extraordinarily loyal. Labs are very loving, people-oriented dogs. They often find purpose in serving their owners and acting as a faithful companion, always by their side. They are affectionate and patient dogs, which are generally well mannered around strangers.

As in the case of Cuervo, Labs seek leadership and will be in their element when given a task from their owner, such as getting a ball or toy. They love to show their loyalty and will thrive when given the opportunity to do so.

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.

Still Open For A Great Home:

Glitter is an adorable, 3-year-old domestic cat. She has black and white shorthair, a cute black nose and beautiful, bright green eyes.

Over the past few years, researchers have found that owners can benefit in numerous ways from their relationship with their cat. First, cats are perfect companions. While they often get stereotyped as unsocial and distant, cats are often friendly and love spending time with their family members.

Cats are also relatively playful. Although they may not need to go out on walks like dogs do, they like to get out their energy by playing tag around the living room or tossing around their favorite toy mouse. Thus, they can also be a fun source of exercise and entertainment.

Studies have also shown that children who grow up owning a cat often become more nurturing, responsible and empathetic. Cats have been shown to teach their owners how to care and relate to other beings. They exercise their owner’s ability to consider what others are thinking and feeling.

Nowadays, people are getting busier and busier, as our lives become more complex and stressful. Thus, cats are a perfect way to unwind, as they have been shown to lower people’s stress, anxiety and blood pressure levels. Recent studies have shown that the frequency (aka the pitch) of a cat’s purr can help calm the body and even reduce healing time in bone and muscle injuries. Overall, cat owners are recorded as having fewer visits to the doctor’s office and are even shown to have a reduced risk of developing heart disease simply because of their four-legged feline friend.

Sounds like a pretty good deal, doesn’t it?

So, back to Glitter!

She has a big personality and is a unique cat with a lot of character. At North Shore Animal League America, Glitter has made herself a temporary home in the back offices, as she isn’t all too fond of the cages.

Glitter is a spunky, sassy and fun little girl, who exemplifies all of the lovable personality traits of a cat. She loves to roll around and show off her belly. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean she wants you to touch it – so be careful, or she may scratch you to kindly remind you that she doesn’t like belly rubs!

Although she tolerates other cats, she doesn’t get too cuddly with them and likes to keep her space.

Christina Travalja, the Shelter Director at North Shore Animal League America notes, “Glitter might not be the best snuggler with humans but don’t worry, she’ll be hanging around you on her terms. She loves to be around people.”

Furthermore, her enthusiastic personality is contagious and she will keep you smiling for hours, as she provides fun entertainment for the whole family. Glitter is ready to share her love and spread happiness throughout her new forever home!

meet pippin animal league america 2015 move tv tech geeks croppedPippin is a young adult boxer mix. She was rescued from Virginia with six of her own young pups that she was nursing and caring for upon intake. Pippin is a shy dog but has a very sweet personality that is friendly, affectionate and loyal. She has plenty of loveable qualities that make her the perfect addition to a warm and welcoming home.  She is a curious and adventurous dog, who has plenty of energy and loves to play.

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.

Female boxers usually grow to about 21-25 inches and weigh from 50 to 65 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.

Christina Travalja, North Shore Animal League America’s Shelter Director notes, “Once Pippin becomes comfortable with you, she forms a bond and is stuck to you like glue. The adorable girl will lick your hands, paw at you or stare at you with her cute and adorable eyes until she gets belly rubs and kisses on her head.”

As a young adult dog, Pippin has already had some training. She is housebroken, meaning she knows to “do her business” outside. In addition, she knows commands such as “sit,” “down” and “paw.

Pippin loves her treats and can often be seen playing with tennis balls. She will happily join you on the couch for a movie night, or jog alongside you during an outing at the park.

Furthermore, Pippin is a loving dog, with an adorable, innocent face that will make you want to squeeze her cheeks whenever you see her. She has plenty of affection to give and will thrive in a home with children 10 and over, that has a relaxing environment that will complement her calm, yet enthusiastic spirit.

meet bandit north shore movie tv tech geeks 2015Bandit is a lovable 6-year-old Labrador mix which was rescued from a shelter in Virginia. Unfortunately, after five years her previous owners were unable to provide her with the proper attention and love she needed and therefore Bandit is need of a welcoming new home.

When Bandit first arrived at Animal League America, situated in Port Washington, New York, she was very shy and timid in her new surroundings. Fortunately, after the NSALA’s grooming staff gave her some attention and reassurance, Bandit became more comfortable and her warm personality began to shine.

The Senior Director of Operations at North Shore, Sylvia Ottaka notes, “It takes a little bit for Bandit to warm up to you but once she gets to know you, she builds a strong bond. The type of bond that once she sees you, she will run over and give you endless amounts of love and kisses.”

Bandit is notably a well-trained dog and very intelligent when it comes to learning and adapting to new situations and environments. She knows commands such as sit, shake a paw and lay down. In addition to this, she is housebroken, meaning that she is trained to do “her business” outside.

She can speak on command and with a refresher on walking on a leash Bandit will undoubtedly become your new favorite walking buddy.

Labradors are known for their kind, friendly demeanor, as well as their impressive ability to learn and be trained, both of which, Bandit completely embodies. Historically, Labradors were used for their keen sense of smell. They have been used in the navy, military and by police officers, as they can easily pick up scents.

Additionally, Labradors have also been employed as guide dogs and for therapy work. One amazing example of their abilities was back in 2001, a Labrador named Endal placed an unconscious human being in recovery position, retrieved their mobile phone and got a blanket to cover the victim while barking to draw attention to the scene.

Labradors are expected to live about 10-12 years and generally maintain good health throughout their life. Furthermore, although the breed is enthusiastic, they do mature when they are around 3-years-old and begin developing less puppy-like habits.

A fun fact about Labradors is that they are often considered to be the most popular dog in the world. They have been reported as the most popular dog by ownership in numerous countries including Australia, Canada, the UK and the United states. In addition, in the UK and the US, there are well over twice as many Labs registered as the next most popular breed.

Bandit is the perfect representation of this popular and well-loved breed.  She is playful, friendly and is looking for a new family to call her own.

When it comes to other pets, Bandit can sometimes be picky and therefore, she will thrive in a home with no other pets and children who are 12 and older. However, she is very easy going and will fit into any lifestyle. She will happily join you on your daily walk or run, or just as happily be your companion while watching your favorite show on TV.

Bandit has a lot of love to give and therefore deserves a forever home where she can become a part of the family. Check out this video below to see Bandit in action.
