We adopted Chara (formerly known as a Regal) on 3/4/14. He is the best dog. He has settled in quite well and we are totally in love with him. We are so blessed to have him and are so appreciative of all the great work done at NEAS.

Forever grateful, Laura & John

We welcomed Jax (Donnie at the shelter) into our family at the end of January and have never been happier. When my boyfriend and I decided to check out the Northeast Animal Shelter we had no idea our lives were about to change for the better. Once we locked eyes with Jax (then Donnie), we knew we could not leave that day without him in our arms.

He is an energetic love bug who also cannot get enough snuggle time with his Momma and Daddy! The people at NEAS also made this adoption something to be very proud of. They were kind and loving people who just want to find forever homes for all the animals in their care and Jax and his new family love you all for bringing us together!

We adopted Misha on Valentine’s Day, which is appropriate since we just love her! She is so cuddly and sweet, everyone who meets her falls in love with her instantly. She greets us in the morning when we wake up, and meets us at the door when we get home from work.

She cuddles with us in the living room while we relax in the evening, and sleeps between us at night. She is a very silly cat, she loves belly rubs and rolling around in the bath tub. ¬†She’s very clumsy and often falls over when she’s playing, and she likes to “talk” to us and make cute chirping noises. And when you’re feeling sad or sick she will come snuggle you and lick your cheek to make you feel better.

We adopted Sadie (formally known as Shelly) Feb 12th. She is settling into her new home very well. She follows her big brother Ryan everywhere he goes. They often snuggle up on his little couch and take naps together. We are so happy to have rescued her!!! We look forward to watching her grow up with our son!

This is actually two happy ending stories in one. We adopted Chloe on February 23, 2013. She was meant to be a companion to Archie (adopted from NEAS Oct. 2010). She has given myself, my husband and two girls so much joy. She spends her days playing with her brother Archie and sunning herself in the window. By night, she has numerous laps to choose from and endless love to give. Archie has also had a wonderful life. He is such a sweet boy and always greets us when we arrive home.

We adopted our first rescue dog, Charlie, a couple years ago. Charlie is absolutely the best dog we’ve ever had. He is so kind, so loving and he just seems to love living with our family as much as we love living with him. Something about a rescue dog, it just seems like they are grateful for a home and a family and it shows in their demeanor. We couldn’t be happier with our choice to get a rescue dog. As you can see from the picture, Charlie has adjusted just fine to the family life!

We adopted Shelby (aka Melanie) on February 11, 2014. We picked our children up after school that day and made the hour plus trip to the NEAS. Shelby was the second puppy we saw that day and we immediately knew that she belonged in our family.

Shelby has brought so much joy to our household in the short time we have had her. She is the most sweet, loving, loyal, playful puppy! She always greets us with her wagging tail and lots of kisses!

It amazes me that Shelby can bring so much happiness to everyone she meets. I am looking forward to watching Shelby grow up with our family. She makes our family complete.
