We picked them up at the Northeast Animal Shelter the same week, within 3 days of each other. The staff was great and we were very impressed with the facility and the people. Houla and Willow have become best friends and have added joy and happiness to our household. Being “empty nesters” we felt that we need some extra activity around the house. It’s been over 5 years since our previous pets and we are now wondering why it took us so long.

The pic shows you just how comfortable they have become with each other, as they take their afternoon naps together.

At only 4.5 months old, I can already tell she’s going to be a lifelong friend. I renamed her Navi (originally Sugar) and she’s so comfortable with the routine I’ve set up for her. She’s eating a lot, morning and night, and sleeps with me through the entire night. The very first night she came home she found her way to the litter box and consistently uses her scratching post. She’s got more personality than I could have ever dreamed of, and more energy packed into such a little body than logic could comprehend. She’s even answering to her name, Navi, thanks to some treats and lots of head scratches. She adores new people too, and will conk out on their laps. I can’t thank you enough for running such a wonderful shelter and foster care program. Everyone I interacted with during the adoption process was deeply passionate about their roles in the shelter and very informative. You’ve filled a gap in my life and found the perfect home for a deserving kitten, so a huge thank you to your whole staff; specifically you, Pat!

We adopted sweet Regan as a puppy in August 2012, and she has brought so much love and fun into our lives. We feel so lucky she chose us the day we visited NEAS. She’s sweet, happy all the time, funny, smart, and beautiful – everything we could want! She and her litter mates were orphaned due to storms in the Southeast US, and we’re thankful that fate brought her to NEAS so we could find her!

We were willing to wait for the right match as we did not want to bring home a dog who wouldn’t be happy. When we got to NEAS, we met a few dogs, but it just was not the right chemistry. We almost left but our adoption consultant Jordan said, “Let me bring you one more dog to meet.” Instantly when Biscuit (formerly Kyle) entered the meet and greet room, he came over and nuzzled me.  Then he did a little twirl and sat on my son’s lap. We never would have picked him, but Jordan amazingly knew what was the right fit for us (although we had met her just 30 minutes prior!) Biscuit continues to be the PERFECT dog for us. He is playful and fetches, but also is calm, loves to cuddle and is a big love bug. We can’t imagine our life without him. Thank you NEAS for matching us with the most perfect new member of our family! We are so in love we are considering adopting another…and if we do, we will be back!

Loki is doing well and has blended into our family quickly. He gets along with our two dogs, sleeps at night with our daughter and loves to take naps in our son’s arms while he plays video games! His favorite kitten game is hiding under the bed and grabbing our leg when we walk by. He brings so much love between his funny kitten antics and his sweet demeanor. We love Loki!

We adopted Ty at northeast animal shelter two weeks ago and we are so in love! He fits right in with the family! Our cat Kiki is still adjusting as is Ty to her. However, Ty loves to snuggle and play with our 4 year old daughter Lily!! He is the perfect playmate for her! He has brought so much love to our home and is doing amazing with potty training! We are so blessed!

Katie was adopted by a friend of mine just a few short weeks ago.  She is certainly loving her new dad and her new home. Richard is retired and spends all of his time with Katie…and Katie is not complaining at all. Katie has her own bed, but is much happier snuggling on the sofa and watching TV with Richard, sitting on his lap during thunder storms, working in his office with him and at bedtime she is quite happy to have a pillow by his side on the bed. She is truly the sweetest girl ever…she actually is a lot like his dog Maggie, whom he sadly lost in December. When Richard lost Maggie he was so depressed; it was devastating for him. Katie has made him so happy. You can rest assured she will have a loving home for the rest of her life. Thank you Northeast Animal Shelter for the beautiful gift of Katie and for all you do.

Our children have always wanted a puppy, but we always had a reason why it wasn’t the right time. When we bought our new home we quickly realized we no longer had a reason not to get one! After a friend adopted their puppy from Northeast Animal Shelter, we knew that was the route we wanted to go. We fell in love with Fenway (Ralphie) immediately! He quickly became part of our family. We absolutely adore him! We believe he is the reason why we waited so long! We needed the perfect dog for us!

After searching for months and deciding who and where to adopt from, we chose Northeast Animal Shelter. The staff was great and very friendly!

When we first walked into the puppy room, “Lex” now “Rex” was the first pup we saw and fell in love instantly! Rex was very shy at first but after spending almost 1 hour with him, he slowly started to warm up to us. At that point we knew he was the one!

His first night home was a little rough.  He was scared, but who could blame him after what he has been through. Today is his second day home and he is doing really well and is great with the kids and loves to cuddle! He is even sitting at the door when it’s time to go out.

He’s the perfect dog for our family and we are looking forward for many years to come! We are truly blessed and couldn’t be any happier!
