Just 1 month ago we adopted Eden and Gigi. They happened to be neighbors at the shelter but little did they know that they would become BFFs for life!

It only took a few days before they were playing with toys together. Now they eat, sleep, cuddle, run and roll around playing with each other all day (& night!).

They have brought so much love and fun into our home! We couldn’t be happier with our new family members! Thank you Northeast Animal Shelter!

Glue has certainly had a long, winding road to her forever home.

First adopted from Northeast Animal Shelter in 2016, she arrived back at NEAS two years later… Sadly, after her owner became very ill and was hospitalized, Glue was left alone in the apartment for a week, where local animal control found her hungry and with serious skin issues.

Once back at the Shelter, Glue received the medical care she desperately needed. Despite any discomfort she may have felt, her sweet disposition never wavered… she just wanted to be snuggled all day long.

Glue was a staff favorite, which is why everyone was so excited when she found what we hoped would be her new forever home. A few weeks later, our hopes were dashed when Glue’s new family decided that owning a dog was more than they could handle. We started to wonder if Glue would ever get a break…

But Glue’s luck was about to change! In December, a woman named Ashley brought her dog, Dis, to our “Paws with Claus” event (wearing matching pajamas). When they walked in the room, our staff looked at Dis and wondered, “Is that Glue?” The resemblance was uncanny – Dis looked like Glue’s identical twin!

Ashley told us she had adopted Dis from NEAS three years ago when he was just a puppy. We immediately brought Glue in, and it was love at first sight! The next day, Ashley was filling out Glue’s adoption paperwork.

Glue and Dis now go on hikes together, and they absolutely adore each other. This happy family sticks together like, well, glue!

Unfortunately, not all adoptions are forever, but we never give up on finding the right home for every adoptable cat and dog in our care.

Thomas (newly named ‘Nougat’) is settling in well!  He and my other cat, Chachi, seem to be getting along decently…it’s not the snuggle-fest that I hoped for (yet) but Chachi has allowed Nougat to groom him and there have been a few nose boops.  

He is super-friendly and follows me around like a little puppy!  He loves attention, loves snuggles, is a purring-machine, and loves to give me kitty-kisses.  He’s also very playful and has a large appetite!

We love Sadie.

She has made a wonderful addition to our home. She’s playful, cuddly, and loves to take long walks. She’s great with the kids and our little Yorkie.

We are so happy that she has come into our lives!

Elsie is doing fine and getting bigger each day.  She is now 22 lbs and all legs.  She is enrolled in a Puppy Socialization program at A Fox and Hounds in Hingham 3 days a week.  She completed the Petsmart 6 week Puppy course and we also have a trainer once a week at home. 

She’s a love.  She is a little shy around new people though despite all the socialization.  She was the same when she first met me on the day of adoption.  She wants to approach them on her time but warms up fast. 

She loves to go on hikes, loves to snuggle, and is 99% house and crate trained.

Lily (formerly known as Trina) is sleeping and eating great.

We love our new family member. She’s learning to potty train really well,  and she’s only had a few accidents in the house.

Of course, she’s already very spoiled.

We do crate train her during the day while we aren’t home because she is mischievous!

Peaches was shy at first coming home, but it didn’t take long for her to open up and adjust to her new home!

She is a pleasure to have at home. Peaches enjoys cuddling up at night and loves sleeping on pillows. She also loves taking showers!

Peaches eats all different kinds of cat food. She will always run and wait by her bowl when it is time to eat.

I am very happy to have her be apart of my family.

Cricket (formerly known as Pharaoh) is settling in nicely. 
She is a crazy, fun and adorable addition to our family.  She’s playful, curious, funny and sweet.
Cricket jumps around chasing toy mice and occasionally attacks the bath mat and slippers.
It surprised us a bit how Cricket is getting along with our older cat, Pickles. Pickles is pretty aloof and we thought Cricket’s “jump around” style might annoy Pickles. Pickles has now been playing with the toys too (when no one is looking), and may be a little less annoyed than she’d like us to think.  Cricket likes to get real low and stalk Pickles and eventually pounce on her tail!

Where to begin….. Sammy aka Poppy has adjusted very well.

She is a super snuggle bunny and is a wonderful companion to my 16 yr old kitty Oliver.

She is eating and in good health.

Her personality is wonderful…she is friendly curious and gentle.

Fletcher is adjusting well to his new home. He is still very reserved when we arrive home everyday but he is quick to warm up after a few minutes. He loves playing fetch with his soft ball. He’s always eager to be snuggling or sleeping on the couch with us. Fletcher is curious and wants to be involved in our activities, and knows when its feeding time because he meows and purrs. Fletcher doesn’t mind having his nails cut and is learning to climb and jump high up now. At his last check up a few weeks ago, he gained 1 lb and is healthy.
Overall, he has been a great addition to our family.
