Pishi converts a non-believer!

My husband had never been much of an animal person when we first met, but in the past few years he warmed up to the idea of adopting a cat and we came to NEAS. We weren’t thinking of getting a really little kitten (maybe a cat around 1+yrs old), but then we found Pishi… Read more »

Sasha the gentle giant

While I was volunteering at the Shelter, this wonderful 97 pound 1 1/2 year old “puppy” stole my heart. I took Sasha on a field trip to my house to see how she would get along with my 12 week old kittens. We walked in the front door and she went over to the kittens… Read more »

Luna and Little Bear

Luna (formerly Latte) was adopted back in January, and boy is she part Siamese! We soon realized the amount of energy she has is beyond what we could offer, and though she didn’t know it at the time, she needed a friend. Enter, Bear (formerly Mustang) in early February. It was a rough beginning because… Read more »

Everest and Frosty – Love at first snuggle

From the moment Frosty rubbed up against my son’s hand at the shelter and Everest climbed out of his cage and into my lap- we were in love. It took all of 10 minutes for them to start exploring the house and within 2 hours they were snuggling up with us on the sofa. From… Read more »

Sydney – A loving companion for the whole family

We adopted Sydney just after Thanksgiving 2017, and she immediately proved to be the perfect furry addition to our family. She is so loving and tolerant that she and our 5- and 7-year-old girls became fast friends. She is also fiercely intelligent, and has learned lots of skills. She has made friends with the neighbors’… Read more »

Batgirl- Acclimating to her Furever Home!

We were told that Batgirl (named for her beautiful face coloring) was found in a dump in VA. She has been adjusting slowly…understandable as she has been through a lot! I think she is finally realizing that this is her last stop and she isn’t going anywhere else. Batgirl is coming out of her shell… Read more »

Ippi (my little Mississippi rescue)

It’s true when they say “you don’t adopt an animal, they adopt you”. That is exactly how it felt when I first saw Ippi. I had never seen a breed of dog with such beautiful markings, and I had never even heard of the breed (Catahoula Leopard Mix) before walking into Northeast Animal Shelter. Having… Read more »

BFFs for Life!

Just 1 month ago we adopted Eden and Gigi. They happened to be neighbors at the shelter but little did they know that they would become BFFs for life! It only took a few days before they were playing with toys together. Now they eat, sleep, cuddle, run and roll around playing with each other… Read more »

Nougat is a purring-machine!

Thomas (newly named ‘Nougat’) is settling in well!  He and my other cat, Chachi, seem to be getting along decently…it’s not the snuggle-fest that I hoped for (yet) but Chachi has allowed Nougat to groom him and there have been a few nose boops.   He is super-friendly and follows me around like a little puppy! … Read more »

Sadie brings joy to the family!

We love Sadie. She has made a wonderful addition to our home. She’s playful, cuddly, and loves to take long walks. She’s great with the kids and our little Yorkie. We are so happy that she has come into our lives!
