We are back with another very special pet that is anxiously waiting to be adopted! Through our teaming up with North Shore Animal League America, we have been able to help house countless pets. Every week, we post a different adoptable animal – cat or dog – in our “Adopt Me” section in hopes of finding them the loving family they deserve. Thanks to our readers, our “Adopt Me” feature has been a huge success and we are so excited to continue shining a spotlight on more pets.
Even if you don’t live in the area, you can still contact North Shore Animal League, and they can guide you to the closest no-kill rescue shelter in your area for a similar dog or even arrange travel arrangements. If you have a friend you think would be interested, pass these articles on as we are working even harder this year to get even more pets adopted than last year.
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.
Now…give a nice, warm welcome to Lily!
At just 8 months old, Lily is an American Pitbull/Terrier/Labrador mix. She has a short, light brown and white fur coat with adorable floppy ears. She was rescued by North Shore from a municipal shelter in South Carolina. Lily is a very energetic little pup and can often be found running around the Shelter’s yard and playing with her favorite toys.
Stemming from her various roots, it is not surprising that Lily has an infectious spirit and lively energy. Labs, in particular, 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). Since Lily is still fairly young, it is the perfect time for her to learn some basic commands and expected behaviors.
Rosie Tombolo, the Kennel Manager at North Shore Animal League America notes, “Lily is a spunky girl and will make a great companion for an avid jogger or hiker.”
Just beginning her long and joy-filled life, Lily is more-than-ready to start her new adventure. She has plenty of love and light that she is ready to share with a family who opens their door and hearts to her. The staff at North Shore suggests that Lily go to a home with children (if any) who are over the age of 12. In addition, if any potential adopters interested in Lily already have a dog at home, North Shore recommends that they bring them in so that Lily can have a little meet-and-greet prior to going to her new home.
Moreover, Lily is an adorable and loving dog. Her bright smile and energy makes her a joy to be around, and she will surely make your morning jog or day in the park just that much more enjoyable. With many years ahead of her, Lily is ready to create a lifelong bond with her forever family.
Please e-mail RachaelR@animalleague.org if you are interested in adopting her today.
