Rocky (formerly known as Marley) has settled in into his forever home very well with us! He is such a sweet soul and is so popular wherever he goes with us.

When we got Rocky, he was 15 weeks old, and he will be 6 months old this month! Rocky was one of 3 brothers that were born in Georgia, rescued, and brought to the Northeast Animal Shelter – where we fell in love with him.

Rocky loves people and his favorite treat is baby carrots! He came to us already housebroken and sleeps through the night beautifully. Rocky is such a good boy, barking only when he wants to play (or when he sees deer on his property 😊). He loves to run, fetch and ride in the car! The funniest thing he’s done so far is when he chewed his way into the bottom of his puppy bed, burrowed his way in, turned himself around, and when we saw him, just his head was sticking outside the hole he chewed… it was hilarious!

Rocky enjoys going to the dog park and playing with his puppy friends, and is just such a good boy! We love him so much and are thrilled to be making so many new and fun family memories with him! Thank you to Ray and the Northeast Animal Shelter for bringing Rocky into our lives! Your staff and establishment are professional, informative, friendly, and were so helpful as we prepared to take Rocky home with us! You, and Rocky, have changed our lives for the better!

Mason is the love of my life…still young and hyper, and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

He’s so cuddly. He plops right down and lays next to me. I’m so glad I get to call him mine for the rest of his life!

Thank you for giving me the chance to adopt him!

We adopted Ava on Jan. 2, 2020 and fell in love with her immediately. Although she was shy for the first couple of days, she has certainly come out of her shell.

She is an extremely energetic, playful, loving and a typical ‘baby’ at just over 4 months old. She loves to chew on anything and keeps us on our toes at all times.

She spends one day a week with her ‘cousin’ Sukka, an 8 year old German Shepherd. They love playing together and are both truly exhausted when the day is over.

She loves everyone and of course thinks they’ve all come to see her!

We are going on 5 weeks with our new pup, Princess. After not having a dog for two years, our house is alive again!

She is enjoying her new dog friends, walks in the woods, and the love that we give her. She loves everyone she meets! She also enjoys her feline brother Oliver.

We are over the moon with her. Thanks NEAS!! Keep up the good work!

Little Bella was a tough cookie at first, but we quickly realized that all she wanted to do was love and protect her family. She is a constant snuggler and the best greeter of all time!

Bella takes her watchdog job very seriously, as her sister tends to let just about anyone visit. Bella loves playing with her furry sister, as well as her human siblings.

Adopting Bella changed the dynamic in our household, but in the absolute best way possible. We love her so much!

Olive (formerly Tessa) has been the best addition! Since coming home at the end of October, she’s nearly doubled in size. Her vet thinks she’ll be a lifelong little bean and max out around 7 pounds.

She’s such a smart and mischievous kitty. Her approach to everything in life seems to be “hey, that looks fun! What if I did that?” She’s learned how to play fetch, knows her name, comes when called (unless she’s investigating something particularly interesting 🙂 ), and we are working on leash training.

She wakes me up for breakfast every morning by laying on my chest and purring. It could just be coincidence, but she seems to be very in tune to what’s going on with me, and I joke that she’s a self-trained therapy cat! Olive wakes me up from nightmares and if I’m having an anxiety attack, she paws at my arms until I uncross them from my chest so she can come snuggle up and purr.

I love her so much and I’m so glad I found the perfect little cat for me at NEAS!

Adopting Bo (formerly known as Candy Cane) was the best decision ever!

He is such a great puppy and loves to cuddle and give kisses.

The staff were all fantastic, and if we ever decide to get a friend for Bo, we’ll definitely adopt from Northeast Animal Shelter!

Toby is the sweetest little man; loves to cuddle and play!

He walked right up to us in the shelter and we fell in love.

I can’t wait to watch him grow up and give him the home and family he deserves!!
