The first time we saw ” Boone ” We knew we wanted him. We renamed him Rocky. He loves to sleep, eat, and run. He goes nuts sometimes too. He loves bones too. He is an awesome dog.

Thank you!!

For years, my husband and I had known we would probably get a dog for our family of four, but we were reluctant to promise our two children, since we already had cats, a rabbit and fish! But we longed for a dog, and on one January day so snowy that all schools were cancelled, my 10-year-old daughter and I began browsing the NEAS website, as we sometimes did. We saw a puppy from Tennessee named “Missy” featured on the site, and my eyes watered. I said to my daughter, “take the laptop upstairs and show Dad.” She did, and I heard him say, “Start the car!” The kids were confused, and delighted, and hopeful. We drove through the blizzard and were the only people at NEAS (which was, miraculously, open for business!). We asked to see “Missy,” who came into the playroom with us and snuggled right in my lap. I cried. We had to do it! We adopted her that day, buying our supplies right at NEAS, and making it the most memorable snowstorm of all of our lives. We renamed our new puppy “Daisy,” and she has changed our lives for the better. We laugh at her funny antics every day, and we adore that sweet temper that hasn’t changed since the day she snuggled into my lap.

We adopted Sadie on October 12 and it already feels like she has been a part of our family forever! I simply cannot get over how perfect she is for us. She is now 4 months old, a snuggler, and just about as lovable as we could hope for! She has brought fun and companionship with her and I can’t picture life without her in our family. She is truly a blessing! Thank you so much to all the wonderful staff and volunteers at NEAS for the very important work that they do. And for helping us find our newest little family member! We love her!

My mom and I went to the shelter to find a playmate for our other cat, Shubert. Hunington got liver failure and my family had to put him down. We were looking for a cat named Riley who we saw on the website, but he got adopted. Then we noticed Sylvester. It was a match made in heaven!

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.
