We’ve renamed Knight to “Ryder” and he’s thriving. He is working on house training, but we’re getting there! We go on lots of walks and activity to keep him busy. In fact we just got in from a 3-mile walk a little bit ago! He loved it! We sent off a DNA test earlier this week so we’ll see how that goes. We are excited about the results! Thank you so much for helping us find Ryder!

My family and I adopted Sherilyn 1yr and 8 months ago. We decided it was time for a new friend only days before my birthday! At our first meeting she was shy and timid, yet something drew us to her. After a couple weeks, she turned into a brand new pup! Now she loves roughhousing and most of all LOVES food!! She also loves going on long walk by the beach. Sherilyn changed things up in our household, but we couldn’t ask for anything better. Thank you NEAS!

Oh my goodness, our Evie is WONDERFUL!!! I took her to the vet and they all LOVED her there!! She has settled in and is such a sweet girl!! She absolutely loves to play and has already destroyed some of her toys. Our cat Sammy does not like her, but he is the only one! We look forward to spoiling her for many years!!! ️Thank you NEAS for helping us find the love of our life!

We hope this message finds you all well, happy, & healthy. While most are scaling back their holiday plans, we wanted to say “thanks” to the staff at the Northeast Animal Shelter for helping us adopt our fur baby this year, and adding to our holiday cheer. Farrah who we renamed “Ms. Fitz” (short for Ella Fitzgerald), is growing fast after her adoption this fall. She’s fearless, curious, and so very friendly. Ms. Fitz has really brought a lot of joy to our household and we can’t imagine ending the day any other way but with her nestled up on the couch with us. Anyway, we hope you enjoy this photo of Ms. Fitz as much as we do and we wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Many thanks to NEAS!

We adopted our baby, Artemis, who was previously Neely, at NEAS. She’s settling in well with us and loves cuddle time more than play. She’s grown into a true lap cat! It’s been such fun getting to know her and seeing her personality blossom in the last 2 weeks. She loves lounging around in her new home. Many thanks to all at NEAS!!

We lost our 15 year old golden retriever a few months before adopting Rache. We decided the house was too empty and quiet without a dog. We were looking around at different shelters for a while up in our home state of New Hampshire. My mother in law had stumbled across NEAS website on a search. We decided to come down and look at the dogs that were available and see which one called to us. We walked through the kennels a couple of times and every time we walked by Rache’s kennel she was standing in the same spot and had those sad eyes looking at you. We knew she was the one. She came home with us that day! She is so patient with our son and loves everyone. She has been happily living the spoiled dog life for over a year and a half now.

We got Scout in 2019 and we ended up keeping his name. I can’t express in words how much I love this dog. I suffer from anxiety and when my stress level is high Scout always checks on me by looking at me and Sniffing my face. Also when ever I cough or sneeze he stops whatever he is doing and comes to me to make sure I am ok. Never in my life have I had a dog like this. Blessed and rescued. He is the one on the left in the picture. Love to all.

We adopted Bella from NEAS about 3 years ago, she is a laid back loving girl. She loves playing with her cousin, Bohdi, so we thought she needed a live in playmate. Back at NEAS we almost left empty handed when we were told of a puppy who was just coming out of isolation after having a virus. That’s when we met Billie. She is an adorable bundle of energy who has brightened our lives. Bella and her enjoying tearing it up in the yard and practicing their wrestling moves. They hit it off right away and are the best of friends! Our family now feels complete. Thank you NEAS for giving us our two sweet angels that I could not imagine life without!

My family has always included a dog and I have loved all of them BUT they were “family” dogs and always tended to choose my son as their “human”. My children are now grown and have gone out into the world to find their way. So, I become somewhat of an empty nester.
In June of 2017, on a wednesday morning on an impulse I drove to NEAS to inquire about a puppy that I had seen on the website the night before. Honestly, I had zero intention of actually going home with a puppy or so I thought. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), the puppy that I had drove out to meet was inside one of the meet and greet rooms with a family. I knew in my heart that puppy had already found his furever home.
The staff member that I spoke with, told me that the puppy had come in with 5 siblings and that there was one female left in the litter who was just coming out of quarantine. She told me she would bring her out, but I was so disappointed about the little guy I went there for, I wasn’t really excited – until – Fiona came through the door. It was definitely “love at first sight”!!!!
Fiona is my everything!!! She is my best friend, my guardian, and my rock. During this COVID19 pandemic, I honest and truly do not know how I would have gotten through most of these days without her. She is absolutely the greatest impulsive decision I have ever made. And at 60 yrs old, she is MY FIRST DOG!!!! I am her human and she is my heart and soul!!!!!
Thank you, NEAS for bringing Fiona into my life and thank you for all you do for every animal that comes through your shelter.

We adopted Chloe almost 7 years ago and she is the best thing to ever happen to us! She is very loving and truly one of the best dogs! Our house wouldn’t be the same without her! Thank you NEAS!
