UPDATE: 11/30/2015: Tom has been adopted just a couple days after we featured him. This now makes seven rescue pets we’ve featured that have found great homes out of twelve. Please check the Rescue Me section (or send it out to friends and family who could offer these amazing dogs and cats a great home) as there are still 5 great pets in need of a great home.

We have an extra special feature this week, as we showcase an adorable dog that was saved during a mass rescue facilitated by North Shore Animal League America a few weeks ago. This is just another reason why we’re so proud to have teamed up with them for our ‘Rescue Me’ section on our Movie TV Tech Geeks website.

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.

On Monday, November 16th, North Shore welcomed over 100 dogs that were set up to be euthanized. The pups were flown in from multiple overcrowded shelters in California to North Shore’s New York campus. Here, they were given temporary homes in the shelter’s two mobile adoption units.

The whole event was in collaboration with Wings of Rescue, which is a group of volunteer pilots who have worked to save over 12,700 high-risk shelter pets. The admirable group is dedicated to saving the lives of both shelter dogs and cats. By retrieving them from overcrowded shelters, Wings of Rescue saves countless animals that are facing an untimely death.

While the pilots and volunteers involved with Wings of Rescue donate their time and efforts, the flights still cost thousands of dollars and are funded solely through donations and fundraising. If you are interested in learning more about the cause or helping fund a future life-saving mission, you can check out their site: http://www.wingsofrescue.org/ or email directly: erin@wingsofrescue.org

Now to the star of the show…Tom!

Tom is a handsome Chihuahua mix, originally from California. He arrived in Long Island at North Shore a couple of weeks ago (as mentioned above) and is hoping to find a loving, warm home this holiday season.

5-year-old Tom is a tiny little guy, who loves to show his affection. Although he comes off shy at first, he warms up quickly and will soon be eager to cuddle in your lap or snuggle up in your arms. As an adult dog, Tom is well trained and has already been housebroken (meaning he knows to do his “business” outside). In addition, he likes to go on walks, but prefers to do so while wearing a harness.

Chihuahuas are known for being full of personality and fun. Even though they may come in a tiny package, they are enthusiastic and loving. They often like to create strong bonds with their owners and stay by their side as much as possible. This particular breed is also known for being intelligent and adaptive. They can be very curious and adventurous dogs; therefore you must keep a good eye on them when away from home, as they can maneuver themselves through even the smallest of escape routes.  Nonetheless, they are incredibly loyal pets who enjoy showing their affection and care for their family.

Pint-size Tom is the perfect companion for anyone who wants a buddy to go on adventures with, or just hang out for an evening at home. If you are interested in adopting Tom and already have pets at home, the staff at North Shore Animal League America recommends that you bring your current furry pals in for a play date to ensure everyone gets along!

Fortunately, Tom was given a chance through North Shore and Wings of Rescue’s mission. However, it is now up to us to find him the perfect home, where he can share his love and joy with his new family.

Still Hoping For A Great Home:

meet chase animal league america 2015 adopt me

MEET CHASE:

Chase is an adorable, shorthaired domestic cat. She has a raincloud-like grey 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, 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.

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.
