We adopted our Sadie in 2008 from NEAS where her name had been Jade. At 16 she has had quite a life, from the streets of South Carolina to NEAS to Arizona and then to Florida. She has slowed down a lot and loves laying by the pool and having our friends always giving her special attention. During her fourteen and a half years with us she loved sharing her life with two brothers who were not blessed with her genes. Sadie was one of four dogs that we had adopted over the years from NEAS. Now we take everyday as a special one and one full of quality time.
What's the Scoop?
A family without something to love and care for can be difficult and feel missing, when we adopted our dilute calico cat Pumpkin (Princess) more love grew in our family and she feels just as loved!
My son picked out this perfect girl when she was 10 weeks and had only just arrived at NEAS. He really wanted a pitty-type breed, but my house contains 3 generations of humans and picking a breed suitable for all was uncertain.
Well, I have to say that for a “bully-breed”, our sweet Abby (Pitt-Lab mix and now 8 months old) she gives that “tough” stereotype a bad name! She makes for a horrible guard dog, which is simply fine with us!! She is smart, playful and affectionate with all humans, she is playful and flirtatious with any unfamiliar pups and approach’s cautiously until they express interest in becoming friends. From my mother and her aging friends, to my son and his rough and tumble buddies (he’s in his late teens), this girl is absolutely loved and adored by each and everyone who meets her. I can’t imagine NOT having adopted this sweet and silly girl!!
THANK YOU, NEAS️️
On June 26, 2021 we adopted Papaya, formally Olive, after the loss of our oldest cat. Our younger cat, Mango, was very depressed and refusing to eat so we thought a friend would help. There was concern about how well they would get along and about her getting enough to eat as Mango is a big, boisterous boy. We kept them separate for awhile with their food in separate rooms. Once introduced the first thing Papaya did was walk over to Mango’s food and shove him out of the way. He was stunned but recovered and headed into her room to eat her food. My son and I figured this was a sign they would accept each other. We have never had a pair of cars that got along well and were pleasantly surprised that this jumping off point has led to a fast friendship with playtime and lots of snuggle time together. We are so thankful to the Northeast Animal Shelter for helping us to build our lovable tropical fruit salad 🙂
When we met Luna (previously Heidi) she immediately stole my heart. She was hesitant of us at first, but I was determined to show her just how loved she would be! The first night she slept throughout the night without any crying! We’re now on day 6 and she has completely stolen my boyfriend and my’s heart and is the perfect addition to our family. She loves the beach, digging, salmon treats and tearing apart tennis balls. She loves cuddles from everyone and greets you with so much love. I could not be happier!!
We adopted Tucker in March of 2019. He is a love bug. Loves his humans, car rides, walks, camping and playing with friends. He has reunited with 3 siblings and his mom. Hoping to reunite with the rest of his family some day. Tucker is black and white and this is his sister Remi.
Becker is now 8 years old. He has been having a wonderful life in the past 6 years since he was adopted. After 2 years of quarantining at home with his dad, he recently became an office dog at the new family business, Winthrop Eye Center. He now enjoys greeting every patient and puts them at ease before their eye exam. He loves having a purpose in life and he is always looking forward to hopping into the car to go to the office! He still doesn’t like to be picked up for photos though.
After our first dog, Calliope, died we were looking for a companion for Cleo and we heard that there were shih tzu puppies available at the NEAS and so we drove down and I stood outside the doors for over 2 hours in the cold waiting for the doors to open. When they did we got to go inside and I saw Athena in the way back. (Her name was Tinker bell at the time). She was the smallest pup in there weighing in at 3lbs! Super cute. She was playing with her brother, which whom now when we look back, we wish we would’ve adopted him as well… I grabbed her card and asked to meet her with my family… At first she was shy but she immediately warmed up and started kissing us like crazy and trying to play with Cleo. I have 4 guinea pigs at home and she loves them to death, and they love her too! They cuddle and groom each other, it’s adorable! Athena is the funniest, cutest, sweetest, weirdest puppy I’ve met and I wouldn’t want her any other way. I’m sure the rest of my household feels the same.
Today is now 15 days that we adopted Storm. She seems like she is been with us long time ago. She loves her two brothers Dani and Pipe, and she also loves to sleep with both of them.
We are training her to go potty in the right place as well buying her a lot of toys. She also loves the belly rubs with give her and cuddling in the sofa. She is part of our family and we just love her.
Two years ago, you were a 4 month old puppy at @neanimalshelter that I brought home. I picked you because you looked so scared and were crying anytime you were alone. When we met you didn’t want to play, but I convinced you to give me a hug. Now, you live in a home with so much love and so many hugs. You get to lay in front of your space heater and chase the squirrels off our porch. You get to talk to the tennis balls under the couch, and play with your dog friends in the neighborhood. On that day I wondered if we were going to give you a happy home, but I think we have surpassed any expectations I had! You have brought us joy and happiness during the craziest time of our life, and we are happy to have you as our pup!!! Happy gotcha day buddy!!!
