GigiHello Gigi! Gigi is a one year old female Shepherd, weighing about 50 lbs.

Good with Kids: Yes, excellent!
Good with Dogs: Yes. She is very timid at first, but then warms up well!
Good with Cats: Yes, but she is curious about them. A dog-savvy cat would be fine.
Crate Trained: Yes
House Broken: Yes

Gigi is the sweetest, most loving dog!! She is a bit timid at first, but when she warms up she is just a member of the family. Gigi is a very playful dog who loves playing with her foster brothers and sisters as much as she likes snuggling on the couch. She is pretty persistent when she wants attention! She also likes to fetch and will play this for a while. Gigi is very good inside the house and does not make a mess, however her puppy instincts still kick in around shoes! One interesting habit Gigi has is that she places one foot inside the water dish while she is drinking! Gigi is being fostered with young children (1 and 8 year old), other dogs, and a cat and is a joy to have around! She is curious about our cat, but doesn’t bother her.  Interested in Gigi? Send us an email! adoptions@lasthopek9.org. Or visit our Facebook page or website at lasthopek9.org.

TazMeet Taz! TAZ is a 5 yr old mix who is a little bundle of fun! Though he starts out fearful of new people at first, he does warm up and when that happens, he becomes playful and affectionate! He would do great in a home with adults or older teens due to his need for a calm, quiet environment. We think Taz would do well in a home with another dog and could probably live with a confident cat. Taz will be neutered prior to leaving for his new home. He does have a propensity to mark in the house so he will need someone willing to work on those behaviors with him.

If you’re looking for a little dog who relax with you but knows how to have fun, Taz may be just the boy for you! For more information, feel free to call us at (781) 544-4533 ext. 301 or email us at info@scituateanimalshelter.org

EmmaMeet Emma! She’s a resident at the Hull Seaside Animal Rescue in Hull. Emma is a two year old black and white cat with short hair. You have to see Emma in order to appreciate her. She prances around with her paws outstretched and dances while she walks. She’s a real cutie and is anxious to find a “forever home”.

She loves attention but tends to get over excited. Lately she been giving a bit too many love bites. We think that she might do better in a home situation. We’re hoping to hear from a cat whisperer who is willing to give Emma the special attention she needs. She could thrive in the right home setting with her very own family.

Please come and meet this cat who loves to chase the laser light. For further information, please call Judy at 781.534.4902.

IsaacUPDATE!!! ADOPTED by two loving WATD listeners!!!

I’m Isaac, a very handsome four year old boy looking for a forever home. I have a shiny black coat, a sweet disposition, and a whole lot of love to give. I specialize in being a lap cat, although I do like to play sometimes. What I want more than anything is my very own person to love. I’m very laid back, and I’m very low maintenance. I would probably fit into any loving home.

When I first came to Standish, I hoped to get adopted by Christmas, but I’ve been overlooked many times since then. I’ve come very close to finding a home only to come in second and have my heart broken. None of the volunteers can understand why I haven’t been adopted . . . they call me their “big teddy bear”. They’ve noticed that the longer I stay at the shelter, the more reserved I seem to be getting. It’s because I am sad. I just need a place to call home.

If you are looking for an easygoing cat that loves to give and get hugs, I’m the guy for you. I would love to spend time relaxing with you on the sofa while you tell me all about your day. I’m a great listener you know. Afterward I might try to entertain you by playing with a catnip toy or chasing a ball around. If you adopt me, I promise to reward you with years of unconditional love and lots of purrs.

If you think that I may be the cat for you, call Standish today at 781-834-4663 and ask to speak to an Adoption Counselor, who will explain the adoption process including relevant adoption fees. The application process will then proceed with a phone interview. Once your application is approved, a volunteer from the Adoption Team will contact you and work diligently to schedule a tour of our facility. There are so many great cats here that even if you decide I am not the right match for you and your family, you will be sure to find someone you want to take home. Do not forget to bring your cat carrier.

We adopt by appointment only. Every day is KittiePawLooza Day at Standish Humane Society!  For more information about Standish Humane Society and our mission, please visit our website www.standishhumane.org.

RascalMeet Rascal! A gentle ball of energy, our little Pit Mix Rascal will lure you in and jump into your lap before you even sit down. If there exists a dog that is gently rambunctious it’s Rascal. His eyes tell you that he can’t wait to be cuddled or have his belly rubbed. Rascal knows how to sit, but would prefer to chase a ball or go for a walk. He has manners beyond his young age of 8 months and is playful and intelligent. Rascal has been excellent with other dogs as well.

Come to the Quincy Animal Shelter to meet the little guy — you won’t be disappointed.

Rascal is neutered, micro-chipped, current on vaccinations and has been temperament tested. If you are interested, please contact by email k9@quincyanimalshelter.org or call 617-376-1349 to make an appointment to meet Rascal.

HoneyWe’re working with another new group this week, the New England Society for Abandoned Animals (NESAA) located in Osterville. The mission of this organization is to advocate, protect and rescue, abandoned and abused animals using a proactive, humane approach. They are committed to their “no kill” programs, increasing community awareness and creating progressive changes in animal welfare.

We all love animals, but every once in a while you meet one with a special personality. A spark that captures your heart. And you know you have to help. Meet Honey . . . a cat who is in dire need of a home. He’s a 9 year old male with an inquisitive and laid-back nature that instantly puts a smile on your face. Honey’s elderly owner is being evicted and although Honey was well loved, cannot keep him.

His temporary foster caregivers can tell you he’s one cool cat. This dude has CONFIDENCE. He’s pleased to meet you, he’s interested in who you are and what you have to offer as a human. He clearly has a lot to offer as a companion. His foster people cannot keep him due to allergies and want to help find Honey a great forever home! The bottom line is that Honey’s days are numbered if we can’t find him a new home. He has lived alone in a small apartment so not sure how long it would take him to adjust to other animals, but he’s not aggressive. He would be a perfect companion for someone who lives alone, but initial impression is that he would also be fine with children, etc. He’s curious and would clearly enjoy living in a larger house but he assures us that condo’s or apartments wouldn’t cramp his style. (If necessary, NESAA will be happy to assist with transportation for a behavioral evaluation, introduction, or anything else that’s needed.)

He has diabetes, which sounds scary and expensive, but is actually controlled by medication. (Cost is about $30 per month and Honey’s owner is willing to continue paying for his meds if necessary). NESAA staff will explain & show you what needs to be done re: meds. He’s neutered and otherwise in good health. Honey is a sweet cat with a lot of charm. He will be a wonderful companion and family member. Honey needs a responsible guardian who is able to manage his medical needs and will make a lifetime commitment to love and care for him. For details on how to meet Honey, call Paige at 508.776.5767 or visit www.nesaa.org.

beansMiss Beans is a beautiful girl who is a 5-6 years young Hound and Boxer mix. If you’ve never adopted a four legged friend before, the Plymouth Animal Shelter needs a foster home for Beans while we search for her forever home and it may be the perfect first step for you. Fostering is a wonderful way to experience the joy of welcoming a pet into your home while helping out a homeless animal in their greatest time of need.

Do you enjoy long walks, hikes & great weather? Wouldn’t you love a dog who can keep up with you or even give you a boost to go just a few more steps? Beans is that great girl you’ve been lookign for. She loves people and it’s not uncommon for her to lean up next to you for a good scratch behind the ears and give you dozens of kisses. She would love an active forever home with a fenced yard to romp in. She’s not good with other pets so she would need to be your only furbaby but it’s very possible with a good trainer & some patience her only flaw could be altered a bit.

If you are interested in adopting of fostering Beans please email Jen at plymouthanimalshelter@gmail.com for an application or please call Plymouth Animal Shelter 508-888-1166.

andyMeet Andy, a Hound/Pointer mix. Animal Control found him living in the woods. When Andy first arrived at the Kingston Animal Shelter he was shell shocked and in poor condition. But after a few days of TLC by the wonderful staff at the shelter, Andy has completely recuperated and is the happiest dog you can imagine. All he wants now is to be with humans. Andy is great with cats, check out his video on our Facebook Page. He would make a great family dog for those able to spend ample time with him. We would ask that you have a fenced in yard for him to play/exercise safely. Andy is currently working with a trainer to master his basic commands.

He is neutered, current with all age appropriate shots and micro-chipped. If you would like to meet this sweet and loveable boy, please come by the shelter any Sat. from 9-12 noon, or you can request an on-line application by emailing us at kaco1@comcast.net.

booMeet Boo! Boo is a curious, confident cat who likes to chat with all the visitors to the Scituate Animal Shelter.

aster1Play…you say? You won’t find a quicker feline this side of the Mississippi! This kitty will leap into action like that of a trained ninja. Wave that feathery wand once, and you will feel the excitement as you watch Aster, from the South Shore Humane Society in Braintree, swatting his paw in the air. This handsome fellow hates to be bored. When Aster was an outdoor kitty, he would scale a tree from trunk to limb within five seconds flat, and then bounce on the grass while trying to catch a bumble bee or ladybug. Now that he is an indoor kitty, he is always looking for a game to play, and someone to beat him at it. This clever kitty is tough to outsmart though. Try hiding the treat under three cups and he’ll show you the treat before you get a chance to lift up the cup for the reveal. He’ll thank you for playing, and then strut around while purring very loudly….just so you don’t forget who the champ is. Once he is tuckered out, he will curl up into a ball and ask for his head to be pet nicely. Aster–always reaching for the stars, always affectionate, and always an athlete. Aster is very friendly, and he is not shy when around a group of people. He is, however, aggressive toward other cats, and he does not get along when around other cats. Therefore, he must live in a single cat home.

If you are interested in learning more or adopting Aster please email HenQuest@gmail.com.

In lieu of adoption fees, we are asking for a donation in the range of $125 each.

Belle&Bailey1Bella and Bailey are looking for a new home. Their owner had a stroke and is no longer able to care for them. They have been together since they were puppies and will only be adopted out as a pair. Bella is 4.5 yrs  old and weighs 8 lbs and Bailey is 4.5 years old and weighs 7 lbs. While they are not litter mates they are from the same breeder and have always lived together. They love to cuddle on your lap, and snuggle up at night. You will typically find them following you around waiting for some love. They use pee pads, but will also go outside. They love daily walks. A fenced in yard with no holes is recommended as they will run away for fun if given a chance! A home with no cats is a must as Bailey thinks it is a game to chase them. They have not been raised with children so we are looking for an adult only home. They are really sweet dogs, and will make someone very happy. Bella is the lighter one, Bailey darker.
If you have any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com. If interested in adopting please submit an application.

mollySweet Molly, a senior English Coonhound Mix, has had a rough life. Originally found with a trap on her foot, Molly landed in a kill shelter. She was treated then adopted but later returned due to the fact she gets nervous when her people leave. This is easily dealt with as Molly will stay in her crate when her people are gone. Molly is about 10 but don’t let her age fool you- she loves to go for walks and hikes and never tires of her walks! She keeps up with the young pups no problem. She also loves to spend time with her people cuddling. She’s great with kids too.

Molly is excellent in the car, probably attributable to her previous life as a hunting dog. She loves to go for rides and look out the window and will hang out while her people run errands. Despite her history, Molly is scared of her foster moms cat and is one of the gentlest, sweetest dogs we have ever met. Molly’s ideal home would be with people who are home a lot and looking for a sweet girl who wants to be with them at all times. She is looking for a family who will love her for the rest of her days and won’t abandon her again. Please consider Miss Molly as your fur ever companion.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application at www.lasthopek9.org. Questions? Please email adoptions@lasthopek9.org. For more photos, or information on upcoming adoption events where you can meet me, please go to www.lasthopek9.org or go to our Facebook page. I have my own photo album on Facebook!

ButtercupHere’s Buttercup! Buttercup is a 2 year old, sweet, energetic, intelligent dog who would do well with an adult home. She’s currently with the folks at the Quincy Animal Shelter. She bonds well with her people, she’s very food motivated, learns easily and quickly. Her wish is to be placed with an active home with humans who will continue with her training and possibly take her to nose work, rally obedience, agility classes, other dog sports or teach her to be a running partner. Buttercup is a cuddle bug at home but needs her energy burnt off to keep her mind and body satisfied. Once she’s had her exercise she is a great pet to have. She is up to date on all shots and is spayed. If you are interested, please contact by email k9@quincyanimalshelter.org or call 617-376-1349 to make an appointment to meet Buttercup. You can see more pictures of Buttercup on the Quincy Animal Shelter Facebook page – just click here.

evan the catMeet Evan! Evan is a sweet guy who has recently lost his best friend. He is a senior cat and would be very happy with a family who can love and care for him soon.

He is the type of cat who will greet you at the door, follow you around, and yes, he still likes to play and has been prancing after the little laser toy. Evan enjoys a lot of attention and petting, and will let you know when he needs it!

We hope that there is a family out there who will give Evan the gift of a new home.  Please call Judy at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue @ 781-534-4902 for more information.

MarcusMarcus is a 6 yr old yellow lab mix who weighs around 80 lbs. Marcus loves to play with his ball that has treats hidden inside it. He will throw it around and play catch. Marcus and the cat that he lives with currently tolerate each other, sometimes they are best buddies, and other times a little feisty. He has also been around a small breed female dog and loves to play with her. He is not a fan of cold weather or rain and would much prefer snuggling in front of the pellet stove. Marcus is very affectionate and loves attention. He seems to be more comfortable around women, but with a little coaxing and patience he will gladly except a belly rub. Marcus is well-mannered will sit and wait for you to shake his paw before eating. Marcus is a very sweet dog who is eager to please. If you’d like more information about Marcus please contact the Plymouth Animal Shelter and Donna can help answer your questions: 617.688.5825.

PCWouldn’t you love to meet Prince Charming? Now’s your chance! Prince Charming is one handsome boy residing at the Kingston Animal Shelter. He is a very active young man who enjoys his playtime.

He loves to be petted and will swirl and twirl at your feet. A definite charmer. He is up to date on all age appropriate vaccinations and has been neutered. If you would like to meet Prince Charming, stop by the shelter any Sat. from 9-12 noon or you can request an on-line application by emailing us at kaco1@comcast.net.

Teddy1Meet Teddy! Teddy is a 3 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback Mix. All the ladies (human and canine) at the shelter love him! Teddy is looking for a home where he can have a doggie playmate. Teddy’s canine buddy can help teach him not to be afraid around humans he does not know. Sometimes men really scare Teddy so it takes some patience to get to know him.
Once that bond is established, though, get ready to play fetch, go jogging and give lots of belly rubs – he loves them! Teddy’s new home can have older kids, at least 10 years old but he can’t live with cats because he likes to chase them.
Feel free to e-mail for more information at info@scituateanimalshelter.org

EmereldaMeet Esmerelda, a gorgeous tabby who is about 4 years old. Esmerelda is very affectionate and looking for a home that wants a cuddly cat. She enjoys being held, having her ears scratched, and sleeping with you at night. She is an explorer and can be a bit like Goldilocks in that she likes to test out all the beds and furniture to find a cozy spot to nap! She’s curious about birds and squirrels, so if you have a window she could look out of, that would be great! Before Esmerelda arrived at the Quincy Animal Shelter, she temporarily lived with a Good Samaritan who found her as a stray. She gets along with dogs also. Are you looking for a loving cat to keep you warm at night? Come meet Esmerelda!! You can direct any questions to felinemanager@quincyanimalshelter.org and visit our website for our hours and more details about Esmerelda: www.quincyanimalshelter.org.

LIbbyMeet Libby, a sweet l l/2 year old tabby girl looking for her forever home. Libby had a home once, but her owners abandoned her when she became pregnant.  Luckily a nice woman rescued her and took care of her babies and too. Once all of her kittens found homes she brought Libby to the Standish Human Society in hopes that she would find her own home. When Libby’s rescuer comes to the shelter to visit, she is so happy to see her and she absolutely loves being held and petted. Libby will be just as happy and grateful if YOU can give her the true forever home she deserves! To help, the nice Standish people have reduced her adoption fee to $50. That’s a real bargain for a great cat like Libby!!

Libby has been at Standish waiting for her new forever home for 6 months- a very long time! When you first meet Libby, she can come across as very shy. However, if you give her time, you will find that she is a very loving and affectionate cat, and also very playful She’s ready for her real forever home where she will be safe and loved. She gets along with other easy-going cats. Older children would be fun for her to play with, and a dog would be okay, too. If you are looking for a quiet, easy going cat, Libby is the girl for you.

***I have been waiting a long, long time to have my own home. Can you make my wish come true? Please watch my video http://youtu.be/vzKyYfoVG7k, and then call 781-834-4663 to schedule a time to meet me here at Standish in Duxbury…I can’t wait to meet you! Love, Libby

Moxie & Koffee pic1Meet Moxie and Koffee! Moxie & Koffee are in need of a new home….they are sweet and have always been together. Yorkie’s Inc., who is placing the pair, really would love for them to be able to remain that way. Moxie is a 10yo female who weighs about 5lbs. Koffee is 12yo male and weighs about 10lbs. Both pups do great with kids and other dogs and cats. They are used to a fenced yard and love being outside.  They are used to being left for long periods but they are not able to hold their bladders as long so they will have to be in a contained area in the house and they do in fact use a pee pad if in a contained area. Koffee will bark if he needs to go out. Both love human attention and may do better with someone at home more. Moxie is a typical female and loves attention…she smiles at you though she hasn’t many teeth left! This doesn’t stop her from eating her kibble or treats! Koffee loves attention too and as long as you have a hand on him to touch or pet him he’d sit for hours with you. If you think you could open your heart and home to these two special seniors please submit an adoption application. If you have any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com.

BellaMeet Bella! Bella is a 5 year old Pitt mix. She loves her people and would love nothing more than to be the center of someone’s life for her golden years. She has had a really hard life as evidenced by her filed teeth and scars. Nevertheless, Bella loves people and especially loves kids. She enjoys walks, but is not high energy. She’s not so interested in playing with toys, she would rather sit and cuddle with you. She tolerates other dogs but is not super playful with them. Bella would love to be an only dog, but would be ok in a home with another calm dog if properly introduced. This special girl has stolen the hearts of Last Hope K9 Rescue and we hope that she will steal yours too. For more info on how to adopt Bella visit http://www.lasthopek9.org. Visit Last Hope on Facebook for more pictures of Bella too.

Hello Cindy!

CindyPretty and snow white, Cindy is a survivor who came to the Hull Seaside Animal Rescue Shelter with her two kittens two years ago after being found on her own. She has become a loving girl who really wants to play, play, play. One of her favorite activities is chasing the laser light, and wand toys. She gets very excited and happy when someone shows her attention and love.

While Cindy is not yet a lap cat, she has really come a long way while being in the shelter, where she is receiving love and attention from all of the volunteers. She enjoys petting and brushing and when you come into the room, she does a little stretch and roll to get your attention.

In the right home, Cindy would be one very happy girl. She needs some space to run, exercise and enjoy her play time! Come visit with Cindy and maybe you will become her new love.

For more information please call Judy at 781 534 4902 and visit Hull Seaside Animal Rescue on the web: www.hsar.org.

rosco Rosco2Meet Rosco, who came to one of the Plymouth Animal Shelter’s volunteers attention at the beginning of last year. He appeared on a cold morning with a group of stray cats that came daily to kind woman’s back door to be fed. She noticed that he was new to the group, painfully thin and seemed to be having trouble eating the food.

She called one of ‘The Helping Hands of the Plymouth Animal Shelter’ volunteers, and upon examination, it was noted that he had a terrible gum infection that was making it almost impossible for him to eat.

Rosco was taken to the vet, all his teeth except one were removed. He was given his shots and neutered.

Right from the beginning everyone noted his calm loving personality. Despite his ailments and neglect, he still loved humans!

He is thought to be about ten years old. Has FIV, but in excellent health and because of this condition, he should be an only pet or live with another FIV cat as he loves all other cats – dogs too. But most of all, he loves humans!

He has black and white medium fur, is laid back and gentle and would make an ideal companion to a for an older person who is home a lot during the day as he is a ‘lap cat’, a little lover who will go from room to room with you, purring all the time.

He loves laps, chairs, and likes to sleep next to you with his head on the pillow. He does not claw furniture. Despite his solitary tooth, he chomps away happily on wet and dry food!

Please call the Plymouth Animal Shelter at 508-888-1186 between the hours of 9-11 am. and speak to Laurie, the Animal Control Officer. Photos of Rosco can be seen on the shelter’s web site at http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/MA80.html or send an email for more info to plymouthanimalshelter@yahoo.com.

Curtis

 Meet Curtis! Curtis is a lovable, 6-year old Beagle and Basset Hound mix! Curtis is currently living at the Scituate Animal Shelter and is patiently waiting for his forever home.  Curtis is very friendly and affectionate. He is good with some dogs and seems to not mind cats either. He loves to go for walks and is great on a leash. He loves to snuggle and be with people so a home where he would get lots of affection and attention would be perfect. Curtis loves people so much that he has some separation anxiety. He will need to follow a training plan to curb his anxiety and he also displays some guarding behavior while on furniture. He can live with older kids 16 and up. If you would like more information on Curtis visit the Scituate Animal Shelter website: www.scituateanimalshelter.org and check them out on Facebook too. The Scituate Animal Shelter is located at 780 Chief Justice Cushing Highway (Rt. 3A) in Scituate and can be reached by phone at 781.544.4543.

vinnie1New Year, New Home? That’s what we hope for many homeless pets, including Vinnie! Vinnie is a short-haired orange and white cat with bright green eyes. He is neutered and has all his shots and has tested negative for all feline disease Vinnie was found some months ago on the grass outside the Plymouth Animal Shelter. He either crawled there or was dumped there. He was emaciated and near death, and was picked up by the Animal Control Officer, taken to the vet and nursed back to health. He’s ready for his forever home! Vinnie is six years old. He’s gentle and loving. What he has endured over the past six years the shelter doesn’t know, but it hasn’t made him mean or aggressive in any way, and being a gentle soul, he is picked on by the other cats in the shelter, not because they are mean, but life in a shelter brings out the “every cat for himself” as the animals compete for attention of the humans and a quick nip on the ear of a less pushy feline is not uncommon. Vinnie needs a kind, understanding person who will be around to assure him he will never be unwanted, hungry or neglected again. To find out more or to visit Vinnie please contact the Plymouth Animal Control Officer at 508.888.1186 or call the Helping Hands of Plymouth Animal Shelter at 508.273.3472.

Chopper**Chopper has been in foster care with Last Hope K9 rescue for roughly 270 days. Far too long for any doggy to have to wait to get settled into his new life. In an effort to get him home for the holidays, a very generous donor has sponsored Chopper’s adoption fee! There is no fee to adopt Chopper! Simply fill out an adoption application online and you will be contacted: http://www.lasthopek9.org/adoption-application/ **

Meet Chopper! He’s a Staffie Mix, around three years old who weighs 60 lbs. Chopper is a warm hearted, rough around the edges, man’s best friend. He is mid/high energy, and sometimes thinks he’s a pinball the way he bounces off of things. Chops is fantastic in his crate but really all he wants to do is sit with/on you and chew on his toys. He is fostered with 5 other dogs, but would thrive in a single dog household. Chopper is definitely more attached to men but will cuddle up on the couch occasionally with women. He has come a long way with training but really needs a home that is dedicated to keeping it up. He is a diamond in the rough just waiting to be seen. You can view Chopper’s own photo album on Facebook by clicking here! Check out www.lasthopek9.org to learn even more.

newwhoopi1Whoopi is an adorable female Yorkie who weighs almost 8 lbs and will be turning 7 in Sept. She has a bubbly personality and loves to give kisses. Whoopi is looking for a new family due to unforeseen changes that caused her current family to no longer have the time for Whoopi that she deserved. Due to this we are looking for a home where her new family will be home to give her the love and attention she deserves and loves. She is very friendly and loves being on the couch with you and sleeping in your bed at night.  She likes other small dogs, but would be fine as an only. She will need some reinforcement with house training. She was house trained but that took a back seat, however so far she is doing pretty well in her foster home when taken out on a regular basis. She has been fully vetted and is ready for her new home. If interested please fill out an application. If you have any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com. For details on Yorkies, Inc. please visit their website: www.yorkiesinc.com.

Jasmine and Brutus******UPDATE: This dynamic duo has been adopted by their foster family! Yay Jasmine and Brutus!!!  Feb 2014

Jasmine and Brutus are two lovable, funny, and inquisitive boxers. They have been living happily in their foster home, but, unfortunately cannot stay forever. The two are inseparable and love each other very much!

Together, Brutus and Jasmine are wonderful pets. Both are house broken and play with their toys rather than your belongings 99% of the time. Watching them play together is hilarious as Brutus propels his entire body into a 360 degree spin before he pounces on Jas. They chase each other around and rough house like only boxers can do!

They do require some extra TLC as they both have severe anxiety with new people and places. Going on walks with Brutus is fun, but his comfort threshold between you and strangers needs to be considered at all times. He does very well with verbal and reward redirection on walks as this takes his anxiety away from the stranger/strangers. In addition, Brutus takes anti anxiety medicine twice a day to help him cope with this. With constant exposure and training both dogs continue to make positive changes with their anxiety issues. They will require considerable training as they continue to work through these issues. In addition, since they have these anxieties, they have not been around children. These two dogs have changed dramatically since they first arrived. Lots of training, exposure, and just plain old love have given them the chance to be the pets that they are today.

AGE: 4 years old. BEST HOME: We believe they would be best matched to a home with adults only. If met with kindness, understanding and patience, Brutus and Jasmine can flourish. They may not want to join in the fun of your family parties but all they need is some love and affection from their people and they’ll be content as can be!

For more details contact the Scituate Animal Shelter at info@scituateanimalshelter.org or visit their website: www.scituateanimalshelter.org. The only adoption fee the Shelter asks for is a donation of Jasmine and Brutus’ new family’s choosing.

BuddyI’m Buddy and I’m two years old! Buddy is a great name for me! I was a stray being fed by a kind person for a year, and then she brought me here to the Quincy Animal Shelter because I am so friendly. Not only am I a buddy to people, but I am also a buddy to animals. I like other cats, whether boys or girls. Because I was on the streets for a while, you may have to let me get to know you before smothering me with love. It will be worth it!  I’m healthy and ready to love you forever! And if you can have two cats, I would love to go home with a friend here! Do you have questions about me? You can email feline manager@quincyanimalshelter.org.

Here is a video of Mocha!

http://youtu.be/62V9YbOgjOc,

MochaMeet Mocha! A two and a half years old, omestic long hair tortoiseshell also known as torte, female cat. Mocha weighs about 7 pounds and she is a very affectionate, friendly cat who loves people and is currently residing at the Standish Humane Society in Duxbury. She thought she had found her forever home with a wonderful family but had to be returned recently. Her new family already had two resident cats that didn’t like having Mocha as the new addition. The resident cats bullied her and caused her to spend her time in hiding. It was very difficult, but Mocha’s new owner felt it was unfair for Mocha to live in fear of the other cats and returned her to Standish Humane Society.

Mocha is very sweet girl and gets along fine with the cats in her room at the shelter. She is truly a gorgeous tortie. She has a beautiful long fur coat that is soft to the touch. What is obvious is that she is a beauty who deserves a home where she can feel comfortable and safe. She is a gentle soul who will make a most loving, wonderful pet for someone.

Potential adopters can call 781-834-4663, Ext. 1 to speak to an adoption counselor and complete the adoption application. If the potential adopter mentions that he or she heard about Mocha from WATD, there will be a special adoption price of $95. All Standish cats have been tested for feline leukemia and AIDs, micro chipped, spayed or neutered, treated for fleas and other parasites, and are current on their immunizations. You can see Mocha and other cats at standishhumane.org.

2951_487158544675673_1295565230_nChopper is a male, American Staffordshire/pitbull mix, and he is about 4 years old. He is about 70 lbs. of pure muscle, with a high energy level. He has been our foster dog since this past February, when he came up from Arkansas. Chopper has a bit of a sad story, because he was removed from his home in Arkansas due to breed specific laws in the town he resided. He was plucked from his family by the ACO, and put into a high-kill shelter with limited time. Our rescue, Last Hope K9 Rescue pulled him and got him up here, and he has been living with us ever since!
Chopper lives in a home with six other dogs, four of them being pitbulls. He is a bundle of energy, and has been described as a “bull in a china shop!” Despite being a little rough around the edges, he is full of love and looking for the right home to call his own. He has a giant pittie smile, and loves to snuggle all 70 lbs.right on your lap!
ChopperChopper’s ideal home would be free of cats, and preferably without small children. Chopper is a bit strong, so we would prefer him to be with either no kids or older ones. He does live in a home currently with other dogs, and could live in a home again with them. However, he isn’t necessarily one to play with other dogs; he would do best with a very submissive dog that would just “coexist” in the environment with him. Chopper prefers men, and really is a perfect definition of a “man’s best friend.” Someone that is going to give him the love and attention he truly deserves, because he really has a lot of love to give. Someone that is going to be diligent with his training because he would go so such a long way with dedicated obedience classes.
Chopper might be a little rough around the edges, but he is definitely a diamond in the rough kinda dog. For more info, or to meet Chopper, please contact foster@lasthopek9.org and visit their Facebook page for more pictures of Chopper!

Rosco   rosco6Meet Rosco, who came to one of the Plymouth Animal Shelter’s volunteers attention at the beginning of the year. He appeared on a cold morning with a group of stray cats that came daily to kind woman’s back door to be fed. She noticed that he was new to the group, painfully thin and seemed to be having trouble eating the food.

She called one of ‘The Helping Hands of the Plymouth Animal Shelter’ volunteers, and upon examination, it was noted that he had a terrible gum infection that was making it almost impossible for him to eat.

Rosco was taken to the vet, all his teeth except one were removed. He was given his shots and neutered.

Right from the beginning everyone noted his calm loving personality. Despite his ailments and neglect, he still loved humans!

He is thought to be about ten years old. Has FIV, but in excellent health and because of this condition, he should be an only pet or live with another FIV cat as he loves all other cats – dogs too. But most of all, he loves humans!

He has black and white medium fur, is laid back and gentle and would make an ideal companion to a for an older person who is home a lot during the day as he is a ‘lap cat’, a little lover who will go from room to room with you, purring all the time.

He loves laps, chairs, and likes to sleep next to you with his head on the pillow. He does not claw furniture.

Despite his solitary tooth, he chomps away happily on wet and dry food and has put on weight and looks in excellent shape.

Is there a cat-lover out there who could appreciate this lovely little boy and give him a warm home and the love he deserves?

If so, please call the Plymouth Animal Shelter at 508-888-1186 between the hours of 9-11 am. and speak to Laurie, the Animal Control Officer. Photos of Rosco can be seen on the shelter’s web site at http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/MA80.html or send an email for more info to plymouthanimalshelter@yahoo.com.

Adoption fees are $10.

Sam and AdamName: Sam and Adam

Age: one and a half years old

Breed: Domestic medium hair, grey tabbies with beautiful bushy tails

Weight: Approximately 8 to 9 pounds each

UPDATE — SAM AND ADAM HAVE BEEN ADOPTED!!!

Sam and Adam are littermates, who look very much alike. These brothers were raised in a loving home, but due to an owner’s death, they were surrendered to Standish. They have been at the shelter for almost three months. These cats are very affectionate with people, and they are closely bonded to each other. When they first arrived at the shelter, they were understandably frightened for the first few days and did not want anyone to touch them. Within three days, however, their real personalities emerged, and they were the friendliest, sweetest, most affectionate cats ever. Sam will be the first to show his true personality, because he nurtures Adam. But Adam’s adjustment will be complete shortly after Sam’s. Then the fun begins, because these brothers are very entertaining. They particularly love laser lights, mice toys on poles, and catnip. These brothers would like to be the only cats in the home, because they are so deeply bonded. They also will become quite bonded with their new family.

Potential adopters can call 781-834-4663, Ext. 1 to speak to an adoption counselor and complete the adoption application. If the potential adopter mentions that he or she heard about Sam and Adam from the radio show, there will be a special adoption price of $175 for both cats together. All Standish cats have been tested for feline leukemia and AIDs, microchipped, spayed or neutered, treated for fleas and other parasites, and are current on their immunizations.

Here’s a video of Sam! http://youtu.be/sl_0q9tnFTU

Sex: Male

Breed: Yorkie

Age: 1 1/2 years old

Weight: 4.5 lbs

Scooter is a very sweet little pup who came to Yorkies Inc. from the MSPCA due to him needing a liver shunt and bladder stone surgey. Scooter has had surgey and is now fully recovered.

****Updated! Bluebelle has been adopted!!*****

Bluebelle is a medium-sized adult female short-haired cat. Bluebelle is a super sweet spayed female approximately four yrs old. She was found stuffed in a cat carrier at a local animal control office, along with another cat who we think may have been her sister – her sister went to her new home and Bluebelle is a bit lonely without her.

She loves attention and would love to be somebody’s best friend. For more information on meeting Bluebelle contact the South Shore Humane Society at 508.378.3560 or visit their website – http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/MA317.html

UPDATE – July 24, 2013 – Ozzie has been adopted!!! Yay, Ozzie! Enjoy your furrever home!

Ozzie! Ozzie is a 1-2 year old domestic short hair mix, medium sized young male. OZZIE is a very sweet cat that is eager for a home of his own. Ozzie was rescued from life as a stray and seems especially grateful for a second chance. He loves to push his head into your hand for affection, hop on your lap, rollover by your side and just be around you purring his heart out. Ozzie may need some understanding as he can be a little fearful of shoes /feet at times (it suggests his early life may not have been kind). BEST HOME: We believe he would be best matched to an adult home and as an only pet.

For more information about Ozzie visit: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/25799294 or contact the Scituate Animal Shelter 781.544.4533.

Honey is a 2 year old Yorkie/Chihuahua mix. She’s a small gal, and is looking for her forever home preferably without young kids. She lives for your affection. She is the definition of a lap dog. Honey enjoys following you around and jumping into your arms. Honey also likes to think she is a guard dog when strangers come to the house. BEST HOME: We believe she would be best matched to an adult home and as an only pet. Her ideal home would be with someone who wants a very affectionate and intelligent little dog and is willing to work with her on her views about strangers. You can learn more about Honey by contacting the Scituate Animal Shelter – phone is: (781) 544-4533 and their website is: www.scituateanimalshelter.org.

Update. It is with great sadness I let you know Ellla has passed on. One year ago she joined the Last Hope K9 family after being found on the side of the road, and from this cruel story of abandonment came a throng of people loved her deeply and will miss her greatly. Ella’s Army. RIP, Ella..

Ella is here! Ella is 5 years old and weighs 80 pounds. She’s an American Bulldog.

Ella is a very special dog within the Last hope K9 Community. She was found on the side of the road and was taken to a shelter in Rhode Island where she stayed for over a year before being rescued by Last Hope. Her face was all cut up from rubbing it against her kennel and she was later diagnosed with lyme disease.

During her time with her various foster families Ella has learned what love is and how to live in a home. She is still learning her manners when introducing herself to dogs and people, but each day she becomes a more happy and confident dog. Her face is almost fully healed and she is recovering quickly from her Lyme disease. Ella is a playful girl who loves to chase balls, and when her tail wags her whole body shakes with happiness.

Ella is looking for a single dog, no child family where she can play all day and be loved unconditionally. Is that family you? Contact: adoptions@lasthopek9.org.

Our very first pet of the week is Kingsley!

Name: Kingsley

Age: 1-2 years

Sex: Male

Weight: 80 lbs.

Breed: Boxer/Mastiff Mix

Kingsley is a pretty special dog. He is so smart and already knows sit, paw, lay down and roll over! He is great on leash and good with other dogs, but we would recommend older kids because of his size. Kingsley was saved from the Staten Island shelter in NY. He had been there for several weeks. His family surrendered him when they found out they were having a baby and no longer wanted a dog. Kingsley is eager to please and has so much to offer. He would do best in a home where he will get plenty of exercise and will one who will continue to work on basic obedience with him. Kingsley does take some time to bond with new people, so he will need a family committed to working with him. Don’t worry, he is totally worth it!
