Our house was so empty after the loss of our beloved cat of 16 years. Ginger (formerly Taz) has brought fun and love to our lives one again. The house is no longer “empty.”  She is so playful and loves to be petted. When she purrs you can hear her all the way upstairs – she is so loud! We couldn’t be happier!

Amber (formerly Saucy) brings me joy everyday! She was the nervous little girl with the cutest ears and beautiful eyes! She remains cautious at times, even three years later, but is an absolute love! I can’t imagine not having her snuggling right next to me.

When we first got Bella at NEAS her name was Ruth, so we kept the Ruth and now call her Bella Ruthie! When we went into see her, she was there with her 7 sisters but when we went to pick one out, she was there with only 2 of her sisters. All Bella wanted to do was be held and loved. She was 4 months old! She’s now 6 years old and the love of our lives! She loves to play with other dogs and also loves to cuddle all night long!

It was around this time one year ago we adopted Lilly. She has brought more joy to our home. She loves cuddling and playing with her brother Dexter (a Boston Terrier rescue). Thank you to the Sato Project for rescuing her and thanks to NEAS for the easy adoption process!

Zoe (known at NEAS as Kasey) was rescued two years ago by my husband and me. Her sister, Emily, was rescued the day after. I grew up with dogs who were either from stores or breeders, but then after having the best dog ever (a rescue), I never get anything but rescue dogs from now on.

After we picked Zoe up, I searched for the name of the shelter where she had been in TN, and found on their Facebook page photos of her, her siblings and their mother. Turns out the two puppies that were in the photo were adopted, and before getting adopted, the pup’s mother also nursed a litter who had lost their own mother.

I adopted Stella, a white and orange kitten, in the spring of 2010. She was so great I went back a little under a year later and found her a friend, Nessa. These two cats love each other and I can’t imagine not having both of them in my home. They play together all day and keep each other company while I’m at work.

We went to Northeast Animal Shelter in hopes of finding a young dog. We ended up taking home Kosmo whom we named Harley. We where extremely nervous as my girlfriend and I have never had a dog. But you guys did a great job answering any and all of our questions. Thanks again.

We are so happy that Mr. Cash (formerly known as Flash) has completed our family. He is so sweet and loving. He loves to give us kisses, while at the same time he takes our shoes/slippers to his play area to claim as his! You can tell he came from the South as he did not know how to handle the cold and snow. Now he is “popcorning” through the snow but still does not care for the cold air.
