Female | Young German Shepherd

***Special Needs Dog*** Say hello to our very sweet, insanely cute (those ears!), special needs pup, Aloha. Though still a young pup at just 1 year old, Aloha does not get to act like it very often.

Pretty please with a Cherry on top, take a look at this pocket sized cutie pie! 2 years old, and just 33lbs, Cherry is the perfect addition to any family. Gentle with children and friendly with everyone.


Male | Senior Domestic Shorthair

What a handsome hunk Chubbs is! 9 years old and 28lbs, this poor guy needs a lot of love and a new healthy life style. Chubbs was left at the shelter by his owners, and has been very depressed ever since.


Male | Senior Yorkie

Meet little man Jack! At 11 years old, he still has a lot of love to give and he is not your typical senior.  Aside from being the ultimate cuddle buddy, he is very smart (a wiz at solving puzzle treat balls)

Jada Lee

Female | Senior Pit Bull Terrier Mix

Beautiful, 7 year old Jada Lee was surrendered to the shelter after her elderly owner became too ill to take care of her. As terrifying as the move was for Jada, it might have been a blessing in disguise as Jada was living outside and not in great health herself.

Fluffy little Jersey girl needs ALL your attention right meow!!!! Because just like Jersey native Bruce Springsteen said, nothing matters in this whole wide world, when you're in love with a Jersey girl!


Female | Senior Domestic Shorthair

Calm, sweet, senior Kayla needs a forever home. 16 years young, adorable Kayla might just be the friendliest cat you'll ever meet. If she's awake, she's purring and looking for attention.

Master Mitchell

Life is a game for beautiful Princess Ruby. Always ready to play, happy to make new friends and looking for the party, she is a  regal-looking, healthy, Labrador retriever mix who was found tied outside the city shelter. She is around 2 years old and 40lbs.

Meet Ronaldo! Our friends at Animal Medical Center reached out  to us about this stray cat who was brought in to their hospital. It appeared that he had been hit by a car and suffered from trauma, resulting in a jaw fracture.


Female |  Adult American Staffordshire Terrier Mix

Five year old Sabrina was returned to the shelter she was once adopted from because, in the owners own words “I just don’t want her anymore”. Sabrina has obviously never received the love and care she deserves.


Female | Adult Terrier Mix

Sweetheart is a wonderful, loving, snuggle bug! She really lives up to her name. 5 years old and 45 lbs, Sweetheart can't wait to show you how perfect she is. She is great with other dogs and children, but may try and chase active cats.


Female | Senior Shih Tzu

Adorable 10 year old, 8 lbs, Shih Tzu, Trina has had a tough time recently. Surrendered to the city shelter unkempt and seriously unhealthy, Trina’s previous owner said they had a new baby and no longer had the time or money to care for their first furry baby.


Female |  Young Domestic Shorthair

Wilma is around 2-3 years old and was brought to the Animal Medical Center in Manhattan as a stray. The doctors suspect that she was hit by a car because she had a bone protruding from her back limb.
