What a wonderful Thursday! We had seven animals find their homes today!
Bey Bibbles and Abby were our two canines to find homes today! Bey Bibbles’s parents met her a few days ago and loved her, so they brought in her new canine brother so they could meet! Abby didn’t even make it into a kennel before her new mom met her. She was on her way into the lobby and it was love at first sight.
We also had five felines find their homes today! George’s new dad couldn’t wait to bring him home and spoil him! Mister Cupcake was happy as could be to find his new mom and dad! Roman is going home with a new mom and a canine sibling. He is also going to have a big extended family close by that has already fallen in love with him. Charlie (camera shy) was officially adopted by his foster mom, and she absolutely adores him. Gem was a young adult who won the heart of her new human sister the second she saw her. As soon as she came out of her condo she knew she was the one!
Congratulations to everyone who found their forever homes today! We wish you all the best of love and luck with your new families! Our Adoption Center opens tomorrow at 2pm, stop in to visit with all of our adoptable animals.

Yesterday, we were fortunate enough to have another session with the fantastic members of HeARTs Speak, a non-profit organization that helps shelters like us with photographing and marketing animals looking for homes. Please take a minute to check out these photos, captured by our staff members! All of these dogs are still wishing for their forever homes, and we hope that these pictures will catch someone’s eye!

Thank you to everyone who helped us yesterday! We are so incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with such knowledgeable, inspiring artists! We would also like to thank Earth Rated, who donated those fabulous green blankets in some of the pictures. They are so soft and cozy… our dogs just love them!

We would like to welcome back Joe and Bey Bibbles! Both of these dogs completed a program at Rikers Island where they worked closely with carefully screened inmates. During their time in this program, the dogs were provided with training (with the help of a certified professional trainer), socialization, and daily care. They also worked on house breaking and basic obedience.

The dogs in this program live with their human companions and stayed with them 24/7. As you can imagine, they absolutely form a bond with each other. Joe arrived with a few t-shirts with his trainers scent on them so that he could be comforted during his travels after graduation. Bey Bibbles was sent with a bag of supplies, including a blanket, treats, her food bowl and her own little jacket!

While some of the dogs are trained to go on as K9 detetction dogs or assistance dogs, they may also be trained to be loving pets, which is the case for Joe and Bey Bibbles.

We are so proud of our dogs for graduating from the Paws for Purpose Program! We would also like to thank Animal Farm Foundation for providing these dogs with such an amazing opportunity.

What a wonderful Tuesday!

3 of our animals went home today!

We had two dogs find home…

Joe’s new Dad met him a month ago and couldn’t stop thinking about him! Joe went on a little "vacation" for about a month, and his dad eagerly waited for him.

Super senior Pumpkin AKA POODY is one of our long term members! We all love this sweet boy so much and we were so excited that his new family saw just how special he really is!

Cat Kit Kit found her forever home today and was so happy to head on out the door!

Congratulations to all of our animals and their new families! We wish you the best of luck! The center will reopen Thursday at 12!

Happy Sunday!

What a way to end the weekend with 5 feline adoptions!!

Oliver was scooped up as soon as we opened our doors today and he couldn’t have been more excited! Miss Ambrosia is heading home as the only pet and will get all her mom and dad’s attention and she doesn’t mind one bit! Mr. Caboose is heading home where he has 2 other cats waiting for him. They were also adopted from us last year! Princess Pheobe is heading home where she has a little Chihuahua mix awaiting her arrival! Handsome boy Jax who is part of our “Golden Oldie” promotion found his forever home today as well! His mom came in looking for a sweet senior kitty and he was the perfect match!

Michael.. Caboose got adopted

Aw! Congrats Caboose! We were about to call in to see if he was still available! Happy he found a great home!

We need a very special adopter for these 2 cats. Mason is blind and we added sunglasses to his photo because his appearance might be startling to some. Slappy is wearing glasses too because he is Mason’s best friend and that is what friends do. Slappy and Mason arrived as part of the 67 cats from the recent cruelty case. Both cats are still a little skittish with people but it seems like Slappy has assumed the role of seeing-eye-cat for Mason. With Slappy to help him, we think that together both cats can be introduced to a new, indoor only, home. Their new family will need to be patient and kind while the boys adapt to a new environment. If you are interested in adopting this pair, please make an appointment to meet them as they are not on the adoption floor. ... See MoreSee Less

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

We had 3 fantastic adoptions today!

Diamond was the only canine to find a home today and she couldn't be happier. Her new family met her last week but due to the storm weren't able to pick her up till today! It was love at first sight for all involved. Diamond will be going home with a human sister and a new feline friend!

Felines Delilah and Princess were also adopted today. Delilahs new mom actually met him yesterday and couldn't stop thinking about her, so she came back into to take her home. Princess' new family saw her and knew she was the one. After spending some time together they new she was the perfect fit.

Congratulations to all!

Gracie "Princess" is already part of the family. She's adjusting well. DCSPCA did an amazing job helping to pair us with the perfect pet.

Good luck to all...God bless.

Ares Play Time!
“What is this Golden Oldie nonsense these humans keep talking about?” Ares mutters to himself as he bounces down the hallway and leaps over snow banks outside… His age means nothing to him! He still loves to go out for adventures and getting play time outside. This is a video of him with one of our volunteers in the play yard a few days ago! Can you believe he is ten!? He doesn’t believe it either, but right now he can be adopted for just ten dollars!

Check out this senior beauty Maya tomorrow morning on Q92! Maya is about ten years old and an absolute doll. She was recently in a foster home, and they could not stop raving about what a good dog she was! She did not have any accidents, and slept in her foster dad's bed every night with him! If you're looking for a well behaved, life size teddy bear, come adopt Maya tomorrow!
