We adopted Patches in January 2013. We needed new dog to start our life in our new house. Patches makes it a home. She lives to snuggle, give kisses and lay in the sun. She picked us,. She was kissing me through the kennel and I knew she was the one. I thought I was peer pressuring my other half into getting a dog. After playing with her in the yard he said, “She is coming home with us today,” and she did. Everyday we learn from each other. I learn things about me, her and life on a daily basis. Yhe unconditional love is amazing. She is my first dog and I love her so much. My life is now about walks in the woods, trips to the dog park and making doggie friends. The day we brought her home was one of the best days of my life. My life is filled with so much love!! Thank you Northeast for letting me take home my best friend!

My family adopted TeTe and she is such a great dog and a perfect fit for our family. She loves to play, cuddle and give lots of kisses. She has mostly attached herself to my 9 year old daughter. Here’s a picture of the day we adopted her. I want to say that the Northeast Animal is a wonderful place. They took the time to help us find the right pet. The staff are caring, they answered all of our questions. And we are hoping to eventually adopt again and add another furry friend.

After I was heartbroken over the passing of my beloved cat, I headed to Northeast Animal Shelter and found Sherlock sitting in his crate crying. I picked him up and he immediately started to purr and talk to me. The woman helping me and I were joking around about how he is going to be a very talkative guy, and he has turned out to be just that. I could not love him any more.  After my heartbreak he was just what I needed to make me feel better. His name is now Rambo and he is the best little guy I could ask for! He will be 1 in February! I just want to thank the amazing staff of Northeast Animal Shelter for giving me the opportunity to love Rambo and have him here in his forever home.

Fanta and Finchen lighten up our lives every day and they make us sooo happy.  They started bonding after the first day and they really do get along very well. They love to play with everything that’s around the apartment, which makes me a cleaner person by not leaving things around, lol.  Fanta really loves computers; whenever I write papers for school he likes to be on top of the keyboard. And they do love food!  Finchen would love to eat  24/7 if she could. Thanks so much for giving us the opportunity to have those two adorable and loveable cats in our lives.

Our dearest Aiko (Alice) came into our lives in March 2013 as a puppy, but she grew up fast! Aiko in Japanese means “little loved one,” and that is exactly what she is to anyone who meets her. She has brought nothing but happiness to us since the first day we met. She is the definition of a best FRIEND. Even as a puppy she was a lady, smart, eager to please and just an over all great companion. She loves swimming in the summer, making friends at the dog park and playing with her favorite red ball. We can’t wait for her to play in the snow! Thanks NEAS for doing what you do, we would have never had our little loved one if it weren’t for all your hard work and values.

We’ve named our new family member Charlie, and he is great!  He’s very sweet, is doing great with crate training and potty training, and is a lot of fun. He follows me around constantly… he’s always aware of his humans!   This is the photo of Charlie that we included in our Christmas card this year – he thinks leaves are TASTY. Many thanks to your volunteers for bringing Charlie to us!!

Things are going really well with our new puppy. We named her Skye. She gets really excited for food and can’t calm down when she knows it’s coming. With her sharp claws it’s been an issue, but we keep working on it and hope she realizes soon that no one is going to take it away from her and she can relax more while eating. I’ve never seen a dog eat so fast before. We feed her 3 x a day and she gets lots of snacks/treats so we know it’s not true hunger, but rather she just needs training.
