Nutmeg has adjusted very well to his new home! He’s the most spoiled, and seems very happy. 

Housebreaking is going pretty well he has only had a few accidents thus far. We are very proud of how smart he is; he has learned sit, paw, and to lay down. We are working on roll over but that one is taking some time…LOL.

He is quite the snuggle bug we have been letting him cuddle with us at night in bed while we read. He has truly been a blessing and we cannot wait to see how big he gets! 

Thank you for connecting us we just love him oh-so-much!!!

Polly is adjusting perfectly! From the minute we walked into the house she felt more than comfortable. She eats great, loves running around with my 2 year old son, is super affectionate and also super playful.

She knows the lay of the land and definitely feels curious and comfortable roaming around. We are very lucky to have found each other!

We like to call her Polly Pocket : )

Dancer, now named Moose, is an absolute love bug. He eats and sleeps great, and he does love sharing a bed with someone at night.

I am so grateful the adoption process went so smoothly and I was able to make Moose a part of this family. He absolutely loves people…I call him my social butterfly and he goes crazy with excitement when there’s another dog. Loves his toys, and snuggles.

He is an all around great pup.

I LOVE Melly – who is now called Lucy, so I Love Lucy! 
 
She is funny and spirited and a love. 
 
My husband, who didn’t want another cat after our cat passed away at the age of 20, is Lucy’s best friend. 
 
Lucy loves  him more than me. The minute he sits down, she is on his lap. And he loves it. 
 
She is the best addition to our family.

Monica is doing great with us and has recently discovered her bark! She loves to play and is full of puppy energy. She loves all her toys that mom gets her, especially her yellow squeaky duck!

Monica is adjusting great around the house and has been great about going outside !

Monica has brought so much love into the family and we are so happy you gave us our sweet girl and favorite snuggle bug.

Joanie is the sweetest girl with a feisty side. We adopted her in October of 2019 and she has had us wrapped around her paw ever since!

It took her about one month to adjust to her new life in our home in the city. She lacked social skills at first, and preferred chewing on us over her toys, but she’s made such amazing progress. She’s been an all star in her training and she’s even made some dog friends in the neighborhood!

She has the perfect temperament – a cuddle bug in the house and an active girl with a serious prey drive on walks. She keeps us active and entertained and we can’t imagine life without her now!

We also can’t wait to adopt again and give her a doggy sibling…

I got Leo at the beginning of December to add to the addition of the 2 older cats we had at home…we wanted to give our male cat a little playmate.

When I first went into the shelter Leo came up to me and right away I knew that was the one to take home. He is loving and so good with the other cats!

At first they were kind of jumpy but now they walk around like they have been together forever. He is so playful, fun and loves to eat everything… and when I say everything, I mean it!  Fruity pebbles, steak, you name it, he eats it!

We love him and are so glad he is a part of our family !

We recently lost our dear 16 year old Samantha and recognized that we wanted to share our love with a new rescue dog. As we began to look at the pictures of the adult dogs at the shelter, sweet Ginger’s eyes seemed to speak to our souls. We visited and fell in love with her; bringing her home on December 14th. Since then we have experienced a great deal of joy as we have more deeply learned about her character and personality.

Ginger was included in all of our holiday celebrations–receiving several gifts and dressing up as an elf to help deliver presents to family members. She has also begun an exercise program which includes several walks enabling her to explore and appreciate her new neighborhood.

She is a very quick learner and it is wonderful how she enthusiastically greets us at the door with lots of kisses, curls up on her dog bed or on the couch, and gently snores falling into a slumber in her new home. We are looking forward to a glorious new year with our sweet Ginger.

Sylvie transitioned seamlessly into our family. She quickly developed a “snuggle routine” and will take turns climbing into our kids’ beds and waking them up with kisses each morning.

Sylvie balances luxurious naps with boundless energy and happily chases toys up and down the hallway, especially at 2 AM.

Sylvie has designated a particular kitchen chair her stalking spot and loves to playfully bat at passers by.

We could not have asked for a more perfect addition to our family and look forward to watching her grow up with our girls. Thanks to the awesome adoption counselor who steered us towards the perfect kitty and the NEAS for all the important work you do!

We lost our dog of 11.5 years in November,  and with the Holidays coming up,  we knew that we couldn’t have an empty house. We missed wet nose and paw prints all over the floor, and a wagging tail at the door. So our family went back to NEAS.

It was almost closing time, and there were not many dogs available. My husband saw this black shy girl in the corner of her kennel. We sat near her and she licked my husband’s face, her face was so sweet. We decided that she is the one.

Phoebe was extremely shy when we tried to play with her, she just wanted to sit in your lap, her tail was down, her ears were down. But we saw that she is amazingly sweet. We were able to bring her home next day.

She is doing great. She came out of her little shell, she is playful, sweet, and very very smart. She got a new brother a week after she got adopted. His name is Boomer. And now they are both inseparable.

Phoebe even ended up on our Christmas card. She doubled her weight, and she no longer looks like a shy little girl. She is a gorgeous 45 pound lab/pit mix who has blossomed into a confident girl who always wants to please you, but quietly steals all our hats and chews the pom poms off!

Phoebe is still trying to make friends with our kitten. But Phoebe and Boomer a bit too curious for our kitten, so they are all being well supervised.

Adopting Phoebe from our local shelter NEAS, was the best feeling in the world. Giving a home to a girl who most likely was overlooked by many people because she was black and shy was the best decision.

Phoebe is a princess in this house and we will love her forever.
