We went to the shelter 5 times for the perfect dog for our family. Our son has autism and wanted a dog that would be gentle, kind and affectionate with our son. We got him! His name at the shelter was marley and we renamed him duke! He is the perfect fit with our family and loves life! It was a truly amazing gift! Thank you all!!
What's the Scoop?
I adopted Brodie (originally Nardo) on February 9, 2014. He was a quiet and shy dog with a tummy problem. I was feeling sick and upset regarding recent personal events, but it wasn’t until I met this playful pup that I started feeling 100% better. This dog is so full of life and has given my whole family more happiness. His stomach problem is gone and he recently started training classes. I am so happy I met my baby. Thank you for rescuing him!
We adopted Spreckles (now named Austin) about a month ago from the shelter. We were looking for a little companion for our other dog, Phil. As you can see from the photo, Austin (white) and Phil (black) are becoming best buddies! If they’re not running around playing with toys, they’re snuggling with my husband and me in the bed. We love the newest (and littlest) member of our family!
I was ready to leave the shelter and went in the playroom one last time and although I did not want a male cat, Dante was the only lively cat in the room. When he gave “kitty kisses,” I immediately made my decision to take him home … he won me over. He is a happy, well-adjusted cat and he Is a furry alarm clock at 6:30 AM every morning, demanding to be fed. He is playful and loving and although he does not like to be held… he is very loveable.
Yana came to us at 2 lbs 8 weeks old. She is now 15 weeks and has grown! Yana is happy, fun and loving. She has connected all the dots in all of our lives, filled all the missing links and mended all the broken hearts. She is just starting to bark.
She is so happy with us, I swear she is laughing all the time. She was practically all potty trained by day 3. She is herding and hording all her toys, some sox, some scarfs, some gloves, what ever, she has found all lost items within the house, things we have not found in literally years. She has found Shaky’s hidden bones and dragged things 3 times her size across the floor into her little crate. She is like an ANT! She has 3 crates and 3 beds of her own and she loves every one them! She is funny loving and playful, and seems very healthy.
Thank you so much for all your help. We all (including my sisters nieces, nephew and their friends) love her very much. She is great for my little son – they too love each other very much. I still painfully miss my little “Shaky Girl,” yet Yana is helping so much and Shaky Girl would have absolutely loved her!
Take Care, Shelly (Mugnano) Dunne 🙂
I adopted my handsome boy Ronyn a couple months ago. I could not be happier with this puppy. He’s the smartest puppy I’ve ever had. From day one he has brought joy to our family. He is completely house broken already, and since we got him he barely had any accidents in the house. He already knows how to sit, how to lay down, how to give his paw and he is not even 4 months old.
The only unpleasant thing about him is the nipping, which is expected since he is teething… he has had a few visits to the vet for his shots and check ups and he is a healthy li’l guy who is not so little anymore. I am absolutely in love with my puppy and am so happy to have him in our family, and he loves people, too friendly at times, when he meets a stranger. My cat on the other hand gets harassed by him once in a while but they also play together and at least Alorik (the cat) is getting his exercise by running from Ronyn.
Every time someone asks where I got him, I always highly recommend Northeaster Animal Shelter. Thank you very much for introducing my to my boy, it was definitely a great experience and a Happy Ending.
This was the first time our family decided to get a dog from a shelter, and it was one of the best decisions we could have made. He fell asleep on my lap within a half hour of meeting JB. It was then we knew he was going to come home with us. He is affectionate and loves to cuddle. He has become a great asset to our family and we enjoy watching him grow. As cute as he is as a puppy, we look forward to the loving dog we know he will become.
We adopted Jenny (aka Lulu) from the shelter a month ago today. We are so happy to have her with us! She is doing so well learning new tricks and playing in the yard with all her new toys! We are so thankful to the northeast animal shelter we had such a great experience and are so happy that Jenny came home with us!
We adopted Sylvester (Silly) and Trixie 2 weeks ago. They have adjusted very well to our home. They did not know each other prior to their adoption but they have quickly come to love each other. They are both very sweet cats. Trixie loves to snuggle (on her terms) and Sylvester likes to give kisses. He also chats quite a bit. It is so nice to have cats in our home again. Our two previous cats passed away within three months of each other last year. Thank you so much for our two sweeties.
Tootsie, who was formerly known as Fiona, has been the love of our lives for a year & a half. She was only 7 lbs when we got her! She is full grown now and so so pretty. My husband and I came to NEAS just to look and ended up falling in love with her, and we couldn’t be happier. She is so gorgeous and fun that we got her a friend named Bruin, who she loves so much. Tootsie enjoys swimming, long walks, playing fetch and playing with Bruin and her cousin Gus. Thank you so much NEAS for saving these wonderful pets and allowing us to adopt our precious Tootsie. You guys are amazing!
