Thanks so much for helping me adopt Riley (formerly Aurora). She is a very sweet soul. She loves to play, and loves to be petted. She sleeps with me every night and loves it when we “hold hands.” I can’t wait to come home to her at night. She has really changed my life!

These two puppies have been a welcome addition to our busy home, and are keeping us all on our toes! This picture captured a rare moment when they were both still for more than a few seconds, tuckered out after a busy day. Reagan is full of spunk, and sometimes is a little bossy with her sister Riley, but she loves her snuggles and is always happy to settle down for a good petting. Riley is a bundle of energy and hardly sits still, except when she is outside experiencing new sites and noises – the sound of a bird, plane, or passing car can stop her in her tracks!

These 2 pups are getting tons of attention… our 3 kids love playing with them, and we have had many visitors since word got out that Reagan and Riley had arrived! Our cat Lucy is beginning to get courageous enough to take a closer look – she is still getting used to the energy level. Thanks so much for everything – we are so happy with our new girls!

We adopted Gracie (formally Sandy) on Dec. 1 after multiple trips to the shelter to find the perfect dog. We had no plans to adopt a puppy but from the moment we met Gracie, we knew she was perfect for us. She’s a truly loving dog full of kisses! We were told she would be a big dog and 6 weeks later she is already 40 pounds and only 16 weeks old!! She is a complete joy and I am so glad that the shelter was patient with us as we kept coming back to find the right dog for us.

Just an update…We wanted to thank you all for the wonderful experience we had in adopting Finley (Sneezy) from your shelter….We had waited to adopt, after losing our dog after 16 years. As with any loss of a pet, who is really part of your family, it takes time… We were ready to open our hearts and home to another dog and here we are…Starting again…He is such a love…forgot how energetic and time consuming training a puppy can be, but know and have seen just how quickly they learn and just how rewarding it is for us, and Fin. He doubled his size in height and length in four weeks, and has settled right in…Took less than a week for him to sleep all night in his crate. He made fast friends with our cat Twyla. He loves the snow…long walks, watching TV, too funny…and hates the word no…but what kid doesn’t…Truth be told , we are all learning here. Every dog, every cat is different, but we are all very thankful to have Finley as part of our family….Thanks again!

We adopted Mimi on Dec 7, 2013. Mimi has adjusted happily in our home. We adore her, and love every moment with her. Mimi started puppy class last week and has been very easy to train. We can not thank the loving volunteers at Northeast Animal Shelter enough, adopting our love bug was a wonderful experience. We’ve recommended the shelter to everyone who asks about Mimi…and to anyone looking to adopt.

So after being divorced for 7 years and coming home to nothing else breathing in my home but me, I knew it was time for a companion. My parents suggested a cat, but never owning one before I was a little leery, even though they have always had cats and I always enjoyed them. My niece Christina is a volunteer at the NEAS, so one day when my Dad dropped her off there he went in to take a look at the cats. He called me immediately when he saw Minky (aka Slim Shady)…all 20 pounds of him! I adopted him on my birthday and he is the best present I could have ever asked for! Not only does he follow me everywhere but OMG can he talk! Can’t imagine not having him as my shadow!

We adopted Casey last February and we couldn’t be happier! He is such a love! He brings joy to each one of us daily! We are so grateful for NEAS and our little bundle of joy we found there!

We adopted Freddie from your shelter in October 2000. As a puppy he was found wondering the streets of Puerto Rico and some nice vet in Puerto Rico had him shipped to your shelter because his disposition was just so sweet; well 13 years later we can’t imagine our lives without him. Thank you NEAS!

This little guy joined our family just a few weeks ago. He was a birthday gift for our oldest daughter. She fell in love with him the minute she saw him in the cage! Amazingly, he looks just like our other special pup whom we adopted from NEAS two years ago! We never thought we would ever find one like her, but they are best friends already. He is so happy to have a warm loving home, and we are so lucky to have him. Thank you NEAS for giving us two amazing beautiful dogs!

We adopted Oscar in the beginning of November 2013 and was the best early Christmas present. We also went back to the shelter to get our picture taken with Santa! He has fit in very well with our cats and likes to give them kisses. Since we have gotten him two other friends of ours have also adopted lab mix puppies from the shelter and we are looking forward to play dates. Thanks for all you do there, and thank you for saving Oscar so that we could adopt him.
