Minnie Pearl

Sweet senior Minnie Pearl (known as Tai Tai by foster mama) has been diagnosed with a high grade hemangiopericytoma (a malignant tumor). The vet was unable to remove all the bad stuff and believes that it has spread.

She will remain with her foster mama and her foster sibs, Dailola, where she will be loved unconditionally, kept safe, warm and cozy with every day filled with hugs and kisses until she gives foster mama a sign that it’s time.

Currently she seems happy and pain free. Paws crossed she gets to enjoy some upcoming warm weather this spring and summer.  NS 2117

Meet Jonathon, a handsome Australian Shepherd Mix. Jonathon is currently staying in Brooklyn where he enjoys walking in the park and playing with the ball while taking in views of the NYC skyline. At home, he is a MAJOR cuddler, loves to lay around and get pets. He is house broken and his temperament is beyond loving.

Jonathon was picked up in late January on the streets of Queens (right in the middle of the cold winter). He is about 7 years old and lots of people think he's younger because he’s very playful like a puppy would play.
He is also very athletic with lots of agility potential and would do well in an active environment. Usually, he is the fastest dog in the park!

He is very well mannered and doesn't beg at the table when eating. He actually sits patiently on the other side of the table. Jonathon is a total sweetheart and will brighten any household. He interacts very well with other dogs and deserves to be an environment where he will thrive.

Jonathon is fostered in Brooklyn, NY. 

Apply here for him.  NS 2245

Watch Jonathon playing football here.
He is great at returning the ball!
