 Tallulah is one beautiful, glamorous lady. Pulled by Forgotten Friends from the local shelter, and currently, in a foster home, she has perfected her adoption skills. Tallulah would love being your one & only; she has so much love to give. Now that Tallulah knows how great a home & loving family (or person) can be, she is patiently waiting to give all her affection to the right person. This lovely, large mixed breed is about 3-4 years old, trained, microchipped, up to date on all immunizations and ready to go home. Contact Forgotten Friends to meet this sweet girl.

Please meet beautiful, 2-3 yrs old, tabby/white Sabrina. She has gorgeous eyes, a sad story, and a sweet, shy personality. Her story began with being pregnant in an awful hoarding situation, going to the NYCACC and then being rescued by FF. At our rescue, all the stress took its toll and Sabrina began to give birth. She took care of her babies and now it's her turn for someone to take care of her. Thanks to wonderful volunteers, she is slowly coming out of her shell, and now loves chin scratches and attention. Let's give Sabrina's story a happy ending!

Handsome Dan, approx 4-5 yrs old, is a SoiDog, survivor of Thailand's meat trade. He may be a Collie/Labx, but most important, he's calm, quiet, loves walks and does beautifully on a leash. Dan enjoys the outdoors and needs a securely fenced yard. He wants to be your only pet after years of struggling to survive in crowded streets. Dan is gentle and super sweet, needs someone to be home a lot with patience and understanding of his previous existence to help him adjust to being someone's beloved companion. Dan will reward that person with his undying love and loyalty
