Adoption Corner!
Meet Lucy and Maria!! Our resident beauties lounging in our cat room.
B/W Lucy was saved from the infamous kill list of the NYC shelter. She's 2-3 year old & absolutely loves playing & interacting with people. She can be on her own or with other cats. She's a perfect companion to anyone.
Maria, our sweet G/W 3 yr old tabby, belonged to a family who didn't spay her and let her out. When Maria became pregnant, they didn't want her anymore.  
We took her in; got all her babies adopted & now it's Maria's turn for a loving forever home.

 Cute, scruffy little Bosco, a 3-year-old Cairn terrierX, is very friendly & playful. He loves people; he's happiest sitting by one's side or getting a good belly rub. Bosco is good with other smaller dogs like himself and enjoys their company. He does need some training in regard to toys as he guards his toys. Due to this: We feel teens and up are appropriate for him, at least until he learns to "drop it" and gets past his toy issue. This is a common behavior and correctable with patience and training. Bosco is adorable and about 30 lbs.

Poor hapless Oscar, adopted as a kitten and recently returned less than 3 years later due to his person's health issues. Initially trapped as an outside kitten, FF vetted, neutered & cared for him. We thought he found his forever home, and are so dismayed to learn that there, he was declawed on all 4 paws. Oscar has uniquely beautiful markings, a sweet disposition and is relaxing and acclimating to his new surroundings at our partner Petco store in Hicksville. He's approximately 3 years old, enjoys playing, chin scratches and just chillin' next to you on the couch

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

Marshall is an URGENT need of a home. His is extremely stressed in his case.

Outside of his kennel, he is a great boy who LOVES people and enjoys being outside. Marshall is about 4 years old and is currently missing a lot of hair on his back and underarms which appears to be stress related as all his bloodwork came back normal.
Marshall would prefer to be the only animal in the home. If you're looking for your one and only, please consider Marshall. We are VERY open to rescues pulling this boy for foster care.
