Phoebe is now Missy (since she is from Mississippi) and we are all head over heels in love with her! She is the friendliest, sweetest kitten. She snuggles under my daughter’s chin all night long. She is attached to one of us at all times. She is trying to become best friends with our dog, Oliver, and our cat, Annabelle. They are starting to come around. We love her so much!! Thanks for your help with our adoption. She has completed our family in every way!

Wild Child (who we renamed Gideon, but mostly call Baby) is doing very well. She’s a very petite cat with a spicy personality. She’s always finding some new trouble to get into, constantly wants to play fetch (yup, fetch, she always brings her toys back for you to throw again), makes a lot of expressive meows, and is a big cuddler. Her favorite toy is a fabric worm which she carries around the house and sleeps with. Her and our other cat, Meriwether, get along well, she is always longing for his attention and will slowly inch across the bed and place her paws on him so he won’t run away (he can be a shy old man sometimes). They like to play, chase each other around the apartment, play battle on the cat tree, and even groom each other which is super cute! Thank you for helping us find our purrfect match!

Our Daisy girl has been a part of our family for almost two years and we are so lucky to have picked her! Daisy was very shy and anxious at the shelter, but we knew she would do well once we brought her home. We quickly learned how sweet she was when she immediately rolled over for a belly rub. Daisy keeps to a routine which definitely reduces her anxiety. The best part is that she LOVES her big brother, Stu, and immediately latched on to him for doggie guidance. She cuddles with him every night and even lets him use her as a chin rest. We all couldn’t imagine our life without her! Thank you NEAS!

Sugar was adopted from NEAS in January 2020. My family & I saw her on the website and we had to see her! We got her card and the rest is history! We went in on probably one of the busiest days, but after seeing her (since we had recently lost our previous dog to illness), we had to have Sugar! We knew that we had to wait and we were able to take her home that night!
She is the sweetest and protective of our family. She is so good with our young daughters. She is the best cuddler and is very vocal. She does what we call her happy grunts and happy ears with her tail going a mile a minute. She loves walks, playing outside (she loves leaves and snow) and she’s also good with our 2 cats! She fits right in with our family perfectly. She’s awesome! Thank you NEAS!

We adopted Louise (formerly Glamour) in January 2018 and she has been the light of our lives ever since! She is beautiful, sweet and sassy! She loves to sit on her many perches around the house and watch us, birds, or the neighbors. Her favorite toys are cardboard boxes, feather wands, and several soft catnip toys (including the ones that she brought with her from the shelter). She rules our household and she knows it! Thank you NEAS for helping us find our baby!

I adopted Nicky (previously known as Jace from West Virginia) in December 2018. He was very scared at first in his new home especially with an older male cat Ricky, but he soon warmed to his surroundings and blossomed. Then, one day in early December a year ago, I noticed he had changed: he was lethargic and was having trouble breathing. An emergency visit to the animal hospital in Woburn revealed fluid surrounding his lungs. They cleared the fluid but also gave me (us) the very dire news several days later that he tested positive for the “incurable” FIP virus, warning of the possible return of the fluids. I could not accept the verdict of “incurable” and found a group which helps cat parents treat and cure their cats with a drug known as GS for short which blocks the virus’s ability to replicate. Long story short: treatment with GS for 3 months and then a 3-month waiting period to be sure symptoms did not return proved to be the fortunate answer for Nicky who today shows no signs of any serious health issues. He has gained his weight back and more. Nicky is now as lively and vital as he can be. He is a great cat who is so affectionate and attached. He is a living miracle.

Sam has been such a joy. I adopted him last week. He is very friendly and affectionate. I am so happy to have him. He’s good company; seeing as we are in the middle of a pandemic! Thank you NEAS for helping me find my quarantine companion!

After waiting a long time for a puppy to join our family, Hughston (formally Houghston) has found a way into our hearts. He is very loyal, and if one of us leaves the room or goes off to school, he’s keenly aware of who is missing. In the beginning we caught him several times on top of the dining room table, so we called him our little goat for a while. Luckily he’s now learned that this is not where he belongs! He’s always ready for a car ride, a game of 1-way fetch, or doing tricks for a treat. But the thing we love best is his cuddling. From the day we brought him home, he really seemed to want to curl up in our laps or find a crook in someone’s neck to snuggle into. He’s a total love bug. He’s completely comfortable around other dogs and loves people, so it’s been a joy to watch him play with other pups. We are SO grateful to NEAS for all your care when he was sick with a virus – you saved this little guy’s life, and now he’s a thriving big guy who has so much love to give!!

For a while now we have wanted a furry friend. During the pandemic, we felt our children needed a loving furry distraction and we basically just wanted some extra love in our home! We decided to adopt a kitten. Our family fell in love with Wynn (we kept his name ) and added a middle name, Tiger. Wynn Tiger has been a wonderful addition to our home! We love him so much and he seems so happy with his new family!!! He plays, sleeps, and eats all day long, it’s like he’s always been a member of our family!!! Thank you NEAS!

Thank you for matching me with Sadie. I live alone and during covid, Sadie is a Godsend. It is wonderful to have a dog companion. Sadie love people and other dogs and enjoys all our walks together. She is determined to steer our walks and every once in awhile I give in. Sadie is very mellow and good natured. She adjusted quickly to all aspects of training and her new environment. I couldn’t ask for a better dog. Thank you Northeast Animal Shelter for the great work you do.
