Harry (formally Gage) is a delight! He loves his toys and to run around the yard but he is also the best snuggler.

He was skittish at first but is getting used to passing cars on our walks and negotiating stairs.

Thanks to NEAS for finding the right dog for me!

We adopted Grayson (Gray) on February 16th, 2020 and immediately we fell in love with him. Gray has brought so much love to our home! He is a very energetic pup but also likes to cuddle on the couch with us.

We knew going into it he wasn’t potty trained…but he is doing better and hasn’t had as many accidents. Gray loves to go on walks to see other dogs and to experience new smells along the way.

My kids have been wanting a dog a long time and I had been looking at the NEAS site 24/7. As soon as we went to the shelter and met Gray we knew he would be the perfect fit!

Rollie become such a wonderful addition to our family. He’s an energetic and inquisitive pup with a penchant for mischief. If he sees a rabbit, he’s chasing after it! Rollie is super smart and has already learned sit, stay, wait, down, leave it and high fives. He loves meeting new people, new dogs and makes friends quickly. Happiness for him is snuggling with his favorite blanket and gnawing on one of his chew toys. Rollie is the biggest cuddler and loves to sit on our laps or curl up beside us for a good head pat or chest rub. He’s a bonafide velcro dog and wants to follow us wherever we are in the house. He especially loves car rides because he knows a fun adventure awaits him. He even has his own Instagram account :

I fell in love with Smudge the moment I saw his face on the NEAS website.

Love at first sight continued when my husband and I went to meet Smudge in person back in December.

We could not be happier with this little buddy in our family. Thanks to everyone at the shelter for everything they do on a daily basis and most especially for the seamless adoption process for our little Smudgies.

We adopted Cookie in August and Buster in November and the two of them bonded almost immediately.

They give each other baths and also entertain us with their wrestling antics.

We couldn’t be happier with them and both of them own our hearts.

This is them playing on their cat tree!

Buster is the perfect name for him!

We adopted him in November and fell in love. He’s nonstop and gets into everything but we wouldn’t have it any other way.

He’s perfect and we love him just the way he is.

This is him just “chillin” on the table.

We adopted Cookie (formerly known as Donna) in August of 2019 and are so happy we did.

She’s stolen our hearts for sure. She’s playful and fun and has a cute little squeak for a meow.

This picture sums up her personality perfectly. She grabbed me around the ankles when I was leaving the room to tell me, you’re not going anywhere!

I had been toying with the idea of getting a second dog, but was worried because my German Shepherd can be kind of a diva. Someone in my family shared the article with Sampson’s picture and I just fell in love. When we went to the shelter, he was a lot bigger than I expected (apparently an error in the weight listed), but he was just the sweetest, lovable big ole pup I had ever met.

I decided I would give him a chance, if he would give us a chance. It’s been almost 3 weeks now, and he is still such a love!! He and my Sibley are getting along. She actually brings her toys to him!! I do not leave them alone together without supervision yet, because I do not want anything to destroy this relationship. We’ve gotten into a routine, and he just loves to lounge in the sunny spots in my office, while I am working.

He has chewed a few things- but hey, he’s still a pup. We go for walks 3 times a day, and he hasn’t once yet peed or pooped in the house!! He’s starting to transition to the raw food diet my GSD is on, and he is doing wonderfully!! He did escape the crate on the second day, so he is confined to my office with a gate and a door. I can leave the door open most of the day, and my GSD only gives him sass if he jumps up on the gate. He puts himself to bed at night, and crawls into his crate.

He has brought so much happiness to this house, even though he is a lot of work !! I just know it was the right time for us, and he is the right dog !!!

I adopted Winston at the end of February, 2020 and was so pleased with Northeast Animal Shelter and their process. It was marvelous the level of detail they go into to try to ensure that everyone is happy and healthy upon adoption. They were truly wonderful, many shelters do not go to nearly the same lengths to ensure everyone is happy and health and ready to enjoy their forever homes.

My little angel took a while to come out of his shell; he was very scared at first and shy, liked to hide. He had just arrived at the shelter from Georgia a day or two before, and had been through a lot!

About two days after coming home with me and getting used to our new life, he burst out of his shell, and is a bundle of joy and completely steals everyone’s hearts he meets. He is happy, playful, healthy, and the absolute love of my life. Such a joy!

Thank you, Northeast Animal Shelter!!

Love, Nicole and Winston

We adopted Pepper about a month ago and we already love her SO much!

She settled right in and made herself comfortable almost immediately.

She is playful, cuddly, and quirky, and we couldn’t be happier.

We’re so thankful to everyone at NEAS for helping us add this little orange fluffball to our family!
