UPDATE: 12/14/2015

Didi was adopted this weekend! This is how the team at Movie TV Tech Geeks News loves to start the week on such a high note. That now makes 8 out of the 14 adoptable pets featured here that have found good homes. While this is good news, there are still plenty of great animals that need a home for the holidays so look down below at the 6 other amazing ones that you or someone you know who could use some good cheer this holiday season. You can also check out our Adopt Me archives to make sure no adoptable pet gets lost there.

As we enter the core of the holiday season, it is the perfect time to open your home to a loving animal. 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 some pets a happy ending this holiday.

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.

This week we are pleased to introduce Didi, the newest pup looking for a home.

Didi came a long way to find herself a new family, as she was rescued by North Shore from the inhumane and cruel conditions of the meat trading industry in Thailand. She is a Shiba Inu mix who is beautiful on the inside and out. She is new to the shelter but has warmed up quickly as she has gotten more familiar with her surroundings.

Shiba Inus are originally from Japan, where they were initially bred to rid of birds, small animals and on occasion, to go hunting for wild boar. Nowadays, Shiba Inus are a very popular breed all over the world, particularly in Japan and the United States.

This particular breed is often easy to care for in terms of grooming, as they generally only shed notably twice a year. In addition, the breed is also known for their inborn cleanliness – meaning that they take pride in grooming themselves and sometimes those around them.

Shiba Inus are relatively athletic and are known for being fast and having high agility. While they love to go for a good long walk or jog outside, owners should be cautious of letting them off leash as they sometimes can get aggressive when they see potential prey, such as a squirrel or chipmunk. However, these dogs are also highly intelligent and therefore typically respond very well to training. This can be seen with Didi, who is already housebroken (meaning she knows to do her “business” outside).

Like many of her kind, Didi is notably strong-willed. These dogs like to feel in control of their actions. Therefore, it can be helpful to keep this in mind when determining how you want to train and care for these dogs. Nonetheless, Shiba Inus make excellent family dogs, as they are very loyal and devoted to their human companions.

Now back to Didi!

Chris Miller, the Medical Support Service Liaison at North Shore Animal League America notes, “Didi is a sweet girl. Once you spend time with her, and she gets to know you, she will cuddle with you and give you kisses.”

The staff at North Shore notes that Didi would prefer a home where she is the only dog. In addition, she would most likely thrive more in a home with children who are at least 12 years of age. Since Didi is a relatively big, athletic girl, her new home should have a large fenced-in backyard space. In addition, her new owners should have a suitable amount of spare time that they can spend playing with her and supervising her when she is in the backyard on her own.

Furthermore, Didi is an adorable, caring girl who is ready for the happier, joy-filled next chapter in her life. She is the perfect addition to any family open to more love this holiday season.

Adoption #: IR328

Still Hoping For A Great Home:

Meet Billie Holiday, an adorable black and white kitty with a big heart to share.

Unfortunately, Billie had to be rescued by North Shore, as she was previously situated in a hoarding situation in the New York area. Due to her recent traumatic experience, she has taken some time to warm up to her new setting and life at the North Shore Animal League America adoption center. However, the staff notes that she has adapted remarkably well considering the circumstances.

While she may have come from a troubling situation, Billie has an admirable spirit that will put a smile on anyone’s face. She loves attention and is up to being brushed and talked to whenever someone is willing.

With her calm, affectionate personality, Billie 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, Billie will bring these improvements to her new owners’ lives and ultimately 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.

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. Billie is the perfect example of this, as she loves to cuddle and show her love to her human friends.

While Billie is not one to enjoy trips in a cage, she is at home when lounging in a safe place where she can capture the attention of those around her. North Shore’s Billie Holiday may not be singing the blues, but she certainly loves to voice her thunderous purr throughout the day.

Dorit Shani, the resident Feline Behaviorist at North Shore Animal League America, notes, “Billie Holiday is amazing! She would make the perfect companion for anyone looking to have someone to nuzzle and cuddle with.”

And on that note, Billie would make the perfect addition to any family as her infectious and caring personality will spread enough love and gratitude to last a lifetime.

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.

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.
