UPDATE:

1/4/2016: What a great way to start 2016 with news that Scout has already been adopted to a wonderful family. We just featured him on New Year’s Eve and what a great present this one made for someone. So that makes 13 out of the 17 pets we’ve featured that have found homes. We’re happy to continue teaming with North Shore Animal League America in 2016 to raise this number dramatically.

What better a way to start off the New Year than by welcoming a furry friend into your family? It is once again time for our weekly adoptable pet feature. Facilitated by our ongoing teaming up with North Shore Animal League America, we are pleased to present yet another cat that is anxiously awaiting a new home. Out of the 16 adoptable pets that we’ve featured since September 2015, 12 have found great homes, and we’ll be including the remaining four further down the page.

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.

This week we are incredibly excited to introduce Scout!

Rescued from Upstate New York, Scout is an orange and white shorthaired, domestic cat. At 2 years of age, Scout has both a laid back and a more playful side to his personality. While he loves to lounge and enjoy his daily relaxation time, he also can be found letting out some of his youthful energy by playing and chasing after his favorite toys.

With his infectious and sweet personality, Scout is an ideal friend for people of all ages. He can help 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 her owners.

It has been said that pet owners smile more, laugh more and form special friendships with other animal owners and lovers. Undoubtedly, Scout 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.

In addition, the staff at North Shore notes that Scout is particularly friendly and will thrive in almost any home environment – including those with children and other pets.

Rosie Tombolo, the Kennel Manager at North Shore Animal League America comments, “He is very friendly, not to mention handsome! He gets along with other felines and I’m sure wouldn’t mind having a canine companion too. Scout loves taking long cat-naps and would enjoy spending a lazy day with his new owners.”

Furthermore, Scout’s vibrant personality shines through his adorable, bright eyes. His soft fur and little pink button nose will have you smiling no matter what mood you are in. He makes both the perfect playmate and cuddle buddy for when you get hooked on the latest Netflix series. And with many years ahead of him, Scout makes for an ideal new addition to any family that is looking to create an everlasting and loving bond.

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:

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.
