Elijah (now called Ash) actually adjusted right away. We came home he ate a little bit and immediately started snuggling and exploring! He has met a lot of my friends and family and has stolen all of their hearts! I absolutely love him and couldn’t imagine getting a better kitten! He is very well trained! He is healthy, happy, and has absolutely found his forever home with me! Thank you NEAS!

I couldn’t be happier with Toby, who I renamed Monty. He is a perfect pup! We love going on adventures together and he has really grown into a wonderful boy! I had a wonderful experience with the Shelter and your staff.  I am very grateful that you introduced me to my newest family member! Thank you NEAS!

Beefcake (now Moose) has been such a good addition to our home! He’s such a sweet and friendly little boy, and everyone he meets falls in love with him as soon as he flops into their laps (which usually happens within minutes). He was quick to acclimate to our apartment, and now spends his days napping between our desks as we work (with the occasional interruption of a video call). Here is one our favorite photos of Moose enjoying his new kingdom! Thank you NEAS!

Jethro is now Gus & we couldn’t be happier!!! He is such a big goof ball & a snuggly love! He had a few accidents in the house, but after a few days he was completely fine with letting me know he needed to go out. He is such a smart boy! He’s a couch hog & loves to be right on top of you with is whole body (which he thinks isn’t heavy)! We all love him to pieces, you just can’t help it.  Thank you so much for everything!

Susie’s name quickly evolved to Suzette to “Zettie”…or Sweetie Pie most of the time. She’s adjusted really quickly and is settling into her new home. She loves her toys and snuggling up to sleep with me at night.  She’s training me to throw her toys up and down the hallway so she can chase them…smart girl! We’re getting ready to travel to the West Coast for most of December so she just got a little harness and leash since I have to take her out of the carrier to go through security at the airport – she was a little annoyed at first when I got her into it, but then was fine with it. Progress! She’s going to love staying at my Mom’s – there’s an eye-level door to the deck so she can see out really easily…my windows require getting up onto the back of a chair or my work table. I love that Zettie is so tiny even though she is a year and half old…kitten size forever!  I’m so glad that we found each other and it’s made such a difference for me, especially during the isolation of COVID and working from home, to have another heart-beat in the house.  That she’s so cute and cuddly doesn’t hurt either! Wishing everyone at the shelter all the best for the holidays!

Harley Wilhelm (formerly Willie) is doing well.  We renamed him Harley because of his purr. He is a little love and has settled into the house well. He still tends to startle easily (maybe because of his eye issue), but he does like to be petted and loves to watch the birds out the front bay window. We love him so much! Thank you so much for helping Harley join our family!

We were looking into get a puppy for so long! Someone told us about NEAS and we had to take a look. We finally came across Kobe aka happy and we knew we needed him. He’s so loving and loves to cuddle! He is 5 months old now and has grown a lot since we got him back in September. Every time he goes to the vet the girls always comment on how happy and loving he is! We got so lucky to call him ours!! Thank you so much NEAS!!!!

Happy is doing well! Her new name is Lupa. She just had her first vet appointment this week and the doctor said she was NOT nervous at all! She’s so excited to see new people. She loves to cuddle and she’s a great snuggle buddy. She would cry in the crate the first few nights, but now she gets in, gets comfy, and starts snoring. Lupa never had any issues with any environmental sounds, which is great! We were worried the train going right through our yard every few minutes would bother her, but she didn’t even seem to notice it at all. We are still working on walks, though. There’s just a little too much to take in at once. Some days she’s very confident, and other times she runs right back down the driveway, but we are getting there! She barely acknowledges the cats. She will walk right past them. One of them is still pretty wary, but the other just wants her food so he’ll get closer to her. Thank you so much for helping us bring our new family member home!

Doc is doing great! He adjusted in no time – literally – from the second he walked into the house. He loves people, kids and other dogs! We got a clean bill of health at the vet a couple weeks ago and he has doubled in size! He’s a big fan of Peppa pig – or at least eating my daughter’s figurines! George pig had both legs and both arms amputated last week, but we replaced him quickly with a new George pig… who lost his legs the very next day! We are really enjoying this snuggly little guy! He just wants love from humans – even strangers, which is great. We thank you all at Northeast Animal Shelter for what you do and for finding us this little guy!  We love him!

Momo came to us as “S. Glenn Mom” last year and has been such a wonderful addition to our little family. We named her after Aang’s lemur in Avatar: the Last Airbender—they both have a certain talent for in stealing food and getting into all sorts of hyjinx. Momo loves early morning snuggles and bread baking, chasing lasers, screaming for food, and going outside to explore in our backyard on her little leash. She has made many friends, of both the feline and canine variety, but her favorite friends are definitely her two mommies, who she sleeps on top of every night. Momo also knows how to high-five, but only when you have treats!
