“Billy” is doing fantastic.  Now known as Dexter,  he made himself quite at home from day one.  He had a good first checkup at the vet and is going back for shots in a a week.  We are doing really well with crate and potty training, while working on “sit” and “down”.  He has a ton of energy so we take a lot of walks, loves to play, snuggles, and visiting his grandparents. He hasn’t shown much fear at all, has done well meeting new people and really took to his new life quickly.

Frank (previously called Thor) is doing so well! He’s settling in nicely. He loves lounging on the couch and cuddling up with us. He is great with other dogs but goes absolutely nuts until he gets to play with them!
Overall, he’s doing great! This is him with his valentine’s bowtie on!
Thank you for all you did for us!

Sally is such a lil love bug!! I did not have any intentions of getting a female cat the day I adopted her. I’ve  had boys over the past 15 years, and I always found them more affectionate than females. I had females growing up and they loved my dad and my brother. Me not so much. 
But Sally picked me that day and I’m so glad she did. My Dad and I are so in love with her. She was so skittish (kind of still is with strangers, which is normal) when I brought her home (Jan 23rd) But 3 days later she was walking by our sides, laying on us  and she’s just the best! She’s very fast, can jump/leap very high, is playful and adorable.
Her markings are beautiful, and she looks like an exotic cat.

Punkin is doing fantastic. His new name is Finn. He is adjusting well to his new home, he loves his new fur-sister, Francesca! They love each other and play all day.

Finn is eating and sleeping great, he loves to snuggle in bed with Francesca, and is a very healthy boy. 

The experience I had with NEAS was wonderful.

Callie (formerly named Maggie) has been a wonderful addition to our family and she’s settling in nicely. When we changed her name to Callie and she started to answer to it almost immediately. 🙂  We had our first visit to the vet last week and everyone fell in love with her while we were there – she basked in the attention and gobbled up tons of treats!
Here are some of her favorite activities :
  1. Gnawing on chew toys and bully sticks (and our coffee table, but we’re working on that!)
  2. Snuggling with her new mom and dad – she loves to sleep under the blankets to keep her parents warm!
  3. Practicing her newly mastered “sit” command
  4. Running around the yard while carrying a pine cones, a frisbee or her squeaky ball

Biscuit is doing fabulously well!!  He has settled in, seems comfortable in the house as a whole  and is eating and sleeping well. We LOVE him – he’s an amazingly friendly, happy kitten. We couldn’t be happier.
A big adjustment in the household is that our cat Smoot, 6 years old, was not thrilled with the new addition at first. But Biscuit just kept being his friendly, goofy self, and Smoot got over it. The two are now co-existing peacefully and even chase each other a bit in play. They aren’t curled up together yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens before long. Biscuit is pretty irresistible all around. 
It’s a new funny story every day with Biscuit, from the fact that he chirps and trills (in addition to regular silly kitten meows) to the way he insists on speeding up and down stairs after us and after Smoot, even though he continues to be somewhat stair-challenged because of his height. His path down usually ends with a somersault, which doesn’t seem to bother him at all.
Neighbors have come by to meet him, and he is remarkably friendly even to strangers – he doesn’t run and hide, he stands his ground and puts on his brave face and looks ridiculously cute.

Sir Brutus is doing GREAT!!!! We are actually shocked to how well he has adjusted. That night we came home with him he was exploring the family room within 10 minutes of being there. Even crawled into a basket and let me pat his head. We moved him upstairs to the office after that first night because it was quieter and he liked to sleep on my sweaters.

After a few days we opened the door to see if he wanted to explore because he was sitting at the door when we opened it. He stayed upstairs on his own and would make his way to the guest room with me and hang out on the bed while I watched tv. Within the week he was sleeping with us in bed!

He is full of purrs, gives endless head butts to me and talks to us all the time. He is also quite playful. We will be downstairs and we can hear him running back and forth in the hallway upstairs chasing his toys. He hangs out on the couch with us now, crawls on my lap to snuggle and let’s me hold him. He is still a bit nervous of my husband but he sleeps on his legs each night so he can’t find him all that bad 🙂

We are guessing he probably lived in an apartment because he’s not too great going up the stairs and is unsure of windows but has started laying in the windowsill to get fresh air. He also was putting himself to bed at 8pm and talking to us at 5:30am so maybe was used to an older person’s schedule, ha. If he ever gets scared (vacuuming) he will hide under the bed covers. Other than that he is quite social now, gentle when taking treats, and loves to eat.

Teddy is doing incredibly well!! Everyday we love him more and more! That is par for the course being animal lovers. 
My husband and I moved to Winthrop to a bigger place, with a huge backyard for Teddy to run around and we are a block from the beach, he loves when we walk there!
We have had Teddy for about a year and a half now and he is still the fun, cuddly, happy, and energetic puppy he has been.
He LOVES other dogs and to play and we finally have the space now for another dog!! Wink wink.

Nico is the greatest addition to our home we could have imagined. He is the sweetest dog, even with new people and animals, and he always wants to play and go on adventures.
He’s a little spoiled with fancy treats but his favorite thing is cheese. He is learning all the basics (he got sit and down on his first day!) and he is doing a great job socializing. He is also the best snuggle buddy in the whole world!
We are so happy we were able to work with you guys. Northeast Animal Shelter is a gem.

We love our baby!

We renamed him Lucca after the town in Italy that first reported a decline in COVID-19 cases because he’s our sign of light and hope! 

Thank you for our sweet boy!
