Adoption Corner!
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.

Muffin & her brother Pumpkin were abandoned in a carrier outside a store in the hot summer of August 2016. An attached note stated, "they are best friends; please take care of them because we've lost our home". Forgotten Friends took them in. Despite their ordeal, they were very friendly and affectionate. Pumpkin is currently in foster due to medical issues & Muffin is @ NSAH. They both loved each other and enjoy other cats very much. While we would prefer they be adopted together ... Muffin is very sweet, loves to play & would be a good companion.

Please meet the adorable Hannah! This pint-size package of cuteness was saved from the BACC. Hannah had been picked up as a stray in Brooklyn, and it appeared she had recently had a litter. No puppies were found so apparently she was no longer needed and was discarded like yesterday's newspaper. Although at a petite 35lbs she looks like a pup ~ she is a young lady, approximately 4+ years old, sweet & playful, and she absolutely adores people and being a social butterfly. What a lovely little flower she is! Meet this precious doll by appointment; call or email.
