Meet Dijon! This is not the best picture of this handsome guy because he is so friendly he wouldn’t stay away from the photographer and just wanted loves!! This big boy is 7 yrs old and has enormous double paws. He is a big cuddle bug. He was brought to the Animal Protection Center of Southeastern Massachusetts a couple of weeks ago and it was immediately apparent that he was in need of some medical attention. It turns out that Dijon is diabetic. The staff is in the process of regulating him with diet and insulin and he is responding well to treatment. He will be looking for his new home shortly and will need a family that can commit to giving him his insulin shots, maintaining his diet and weight and taking him for regular vet checks. Stay tuned for more updates or if you are interested in possibly adopting please contact the shelter. Updates can be found HERE on their Facebook page or by emailing: adoptions@apcsm.org.

CC (which possibly stands for “calico cutie”) is a 7 year old girl with a gorgeous fur coat who is currently residing at the Quincy Animal Shelter. In addition to her beautiful coloring, CC is polydactyl, with adorable mitten-like front paws. She is calm and reserved, and would do best in a quiet home with only adults. Though not a lap cat, CC is affectionate and will gently head-butt you in exchange for chin scratches. If she seems shy at first, offer her a few treats and she will come right out of her shell. Stop by the shelter to meet CC- she may be the perfect cat that your loving home needs. If you’d like to meet CC, please email felinemanager@quincyanimalshelter.org.

Ike

Meet Ike! Ike is a 2-year old neutered male lab mix, currently residing at Milton Animal League’s Animal Shelter. Ike has been through at least two homes before coming to the shelter.  He is a gorgeous, loving boy, but he never received the training and structure a big high energy dog needs.  As a result, he will jump on people and pull hard on a leash.  He has also shown some signs of separation anxiety.  The volunteers at the shelter like Ike a lot and know that he can become a good companion with the right family – one that can commit to giving him exercise (he loves to swim), training, structure and love. If you’d like more details on Ike, please call the shelter at 617.698.0413 or email info@miltonanimalleague.org. Shelter hours are Monday – Friday, 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

chapman

Meet Chapman! Chapman is a 50-lb., 2-year-old Retriever mix who is working with Last Hope K9 Rescue to find his forever home. Chapman is a beautiful boy who is looking for a very active family that will include him in their daily activities. He would love to go on long hikes or be your running buddy. Chapman would like for his family to have some experience with herding breeds and their behaviors. While he loves everyone, between his herding skills and being pretty high energy, he would do best in homes with teens and older folks. He gets along great with other dogs and doesn’t mind sharing his toys or treats. He is still working on basic training, such as not jumping up, and would need a family devoted to working with a trainer to teach him basic obedience. He is a super happy guy, who loves his people! If you’re interested in meeting or adopting Chapman please visit www.lasthopek9.org to fill out an application. You can find more pictures of Champan on the Last Hope Facebook page!

tyson

Meet Tyson..again!! We featured Tyson a few months ago, but he’s still at Blue Dog shelter and we really, really want to find him a home! Tyson is a very special, adorable, friendly and energetic 1 year old Puggle who has made his way to the Blue Dog Shelter in Brockton. He has really special qualities that the shelter volunteers just love about him. He is being very specific about the home he is looking for…he would like someone that loves to exercise especially hike, run, and walk because Tyson has a lot of energy and needs a fun way to release it. He is also looking to be the only pet in the household because he likes to keep all of his people and toys to himself…fair enough! Tyson prides himself in knowing that he is very trainable and knows all of his basic commands including sit, down, stay, come when called and most importantly – he is fully crate trained and loves it! If you are the energetic, exercise enthusiast that Tyson is looking for please visit the shelter and meet him during regular adoption hours. He will be happy to meet you! Tyson’s adoption donation is $485 and covers his neuter, updated vaccinations, deworming, heartworm/erlichia/lyme/anaplasmosis test, heartworm and flea/tick prevention while he’s at Blue Dog Shelter, and a microchip with registration.

The shelter hours are Tues/Wed/Fri 3:00 pm. – 8:00 p.m. and Sat/Sun 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Learn more online at http://bluedogshelter.org/

This is Mimi. Mimi is a 7-year-old spayed female, who was adopted from Standish Humane Society but due to unforeseen events in the family, is back at the shelter to find a new home.

From her prior owner we learned that Mimi is very lovable and cuddly once she gets to know you. She is not the least bit aggressive and is very good with other cats, dogs and children. She recently lived with a rambunctious 3 year old! She likes to sunbathe, sleep, bat toys around and get scratched. Please call 781-834-4663 to meet Mimi!

Laddie-377x250

Meet Laddie…again! We featured Laddie in November and he was adopted from the Scituate Animal Shelter last year after spending 8 months in the shelter waiting for a home. Poor Laddie is back at the shelter again after bullying the other dog in the home. Laddie has had a tough life at 11 years old. Laddie is looking for an adoptive home but right now the shelter is very interested and would be very happy with even getting him a foster home for the next month. He is so stressed in the kennel that a foster home would make him much happier. Laddie should be in a home without other pets. He is house trained and great on the leash. He is an easy going guy in the home but if left unattended in a yard will scale any size fence! Please share Laddie’s story and help us find him a foster or adoptive home! Email Ashley for more info at ashleydavis@scituateanimalshelter.org.

Here is a video of Laddie: https://youtu.be/0J5b_qd1VNs

**Laddie’s original post:

Laddie is a 11-year-old well-mannered older gentlemen currently residing at the Scituate Animal Shelter. He is shy once you first meet him but he opens up once you take him for a walk and let him roll in the grass. Podengos are natural wanderers so he needs to be kept on a leash or behind a secure fence. He is very well house trained and a nice and easy guy in the house. He is an escape artist outside and always needs to be on a leash! Since he is reserved, he would do best in a quiet home. He would be perfect for someone older. :)

To meet Laddie, you can send an email to info@scituateanimalshelter.org, call 781.544.4533, or come in any time during their open hours which are listed below!

If you’d like to get the process started, follow the link http://scituateanimalshelter.org/adopt/make-a-match/ to fill out the shelter’s adoption survey. You can either print it out and bring it in or submit it right online and one of their adoption counselors will give you a call. If you fill out the form online rather than printing it out, just mention LADDIE in your answer to the last question.

Open Hours:
Tues & Wed: 12 PM – 6 PM
Thurs: 3 PM – 7 PM
Sat: 10 AM – 5 PM

Meet Pepper. Pepper is a sweet, female Yorkie who is 8 years old and weighs around 13lbs currently residing with the fabulous volunteers of Yorkies, Inc. Pepper finds herself in need of a new loving home due to her current Mom suffering from a medical condition that makes it hard for her to be able to properly care for Pepper. Pepper has been an only dog for over 6 years and she would prefer to continue being an only dog. She loves adult attention, giving kisses, cuddling and going for walks. Pepper knows a few basic commands, such as sit, stay and give paw especially if there is a treat involved! She rides okay in the car and enjoyes being outside in her fenced in yard (espeically if there are squirrels in the area). Pepper would do best with someone home more than not as she loves to be with people and also can reinforce her house training skills. She isn’t a fan of thunder or fireworks…which is pretty typical! Pepper does take an inexpensive allergy pill daily for mild environnental allergies, she probably does not need the pill in the winter, but her previous owner did give it year round with no issues. If you have any questions about Pepper please write to cathie@yorkiesinc.com if interested in Pepper please fill out an application at www.yorkiesinc.com.

pogo

Pogo is a very active, younger cat. Pogo, however, is not a cat for a first time owner as he likes to play rough. Pogo gets along well with cats and gets along ok with small dogs.  He enjoys bird watching and chasing feathered toys and he would do well in a home that has lots of room for him to roam and lots of sunny windows for him to sit by. He is active and will need lots of exercise through play to keep him from getting into trouble. Pogo can be seen any Saturday from 9-12 noon at the adoption center at the Kingston Animal Shelter at 28 Evergreen Street. Come by and meet him – he’d love to play with you and he’d love your help finding his forever home. To contact the shelter and ask about Pogo please call 781.585.0529 or visit their website HERE.

Ike

This is Ike. This week Ike turns 2! For Ike’s birthday he’d love nothing more than to be adopted and meet his forever family! Ike is a lab mix and has been through at least 2 homes before coming to the Milton Animal League Animal Shelter. Ike is a gorgeous, loving, boy but he never received the proper training and structure that a big, high-energy dog really needs. As a result he will jump on people and pull hard on his leash. He’s shown some signs of separation anxiety so he will need a family that can put some time into his nurturing and training. Ike is really loved at the shelter and the volunteers know that he can be an amazing companion for the right family – one that can commit to giving Ike exercise (Ike loves swimming!), training, structure, and of course, love. Contact Milton Animal League Animal Shelter for more details on Ike and to set up a visit to meet him: 617.698.0413 milton.animal@gmail.com.

Louisa

Look at this sweet face! Meet Louisa…she’s just looking for someone to notice and love her. Louisa is a year and a half old female tiger cat who recently arrived at the Hull Seaside Animal Rescue shelter. Arriving at the shelter to a new situation she was shy at first, but she did show that she wanted attention and petting. Since she does have a big personality and wants her own way, she would probably do best as an only cat so that she can have your full attention.

A forever home, where she will be appreciated, enjoy a sunny window and have interactive playtime is just what she needs. Given all that, Louisa will be a super companion. A dedicated owner is just what she needs!

Please call Judy at 781-534-4902 for more information on Miss Louisa and visit http://www.hsar.org/ for more details and pictures!

Girly Girl

Say hello to Girly Girl! Girly Girl is currently residing at the Quincy Animal Shelter as she awaits her forever home. Girly Girl is a 2 year old sweet girl who takes a New York minute to get to know you. She can be strong on a leash but she will listen — you just need to have some patience as you work with her. While she has some “friends” at the shelter, other dogs do scare her a bit. She will need some more training and guidance when it comes to doggie playmates. She’d like an owner who will show her the finer things in life, and when you bond, she will cuddle up to you and will even show you how much she loves you with a kiss or two. Life together will take some learning but Girly Girl has a lot of love to give and is eagerly awaiting life outside the shelter in her forever home. For more details or to set up a visit email k9@quincyanimalshelter.org. And you can see more photos of Girly Girl on the Quincy Animal Shelter Facebook page HERE!

Zeppelin

We’ve got a dynamic duo for you to meet today…Mara and Zeppelin. Paws New England contacted WATD recently and asked if we could highlight this pair. Mara has been with Paws since February of 2015 and Zeppelin has been with Paws since March of this year. These dogs are loving and obedient. They are tolerant of other dogs but they each need to be the only pet in their new forever homes. Please note, while we’re introducing both dogs to you, they will be going to separate homes.

A little bit about Mara…Mara is a 6 year old pit bull terrier mix. Mara was rescued from a shelter in TN and has been waiting to find her forever home for more than two years!! She is currently boarding at a “pet resort” because it has been a struggle to find a foster family with no pets already in the home. She absolutely adores people and does well with kids, too. She’s a playful girl that enjoys collecting her toys for a rainy day. She’s always available for belly rubs and will never say no to a good snuggle. While Mara has been boarded she completed training sessions for basic obedience. She has done well with sit, down and recall. She continues to work on learning to patiently wait at doors. Mara is very treat motivated and her training crew thinks she can learn anything with a little bribery!  She is a great girl who would do great in an active home with a family who can make a commitment to providing her the exercise and training that she deserves and needs. She loves taking walks and even has good leash manners!  Check out Mara’s training video! https://youtu.be/L4fthscXGNM

Let’s talk about Zeppelin…Zeppelin is an 8 year old Chocolate Lab/Hound mix. Sweet Zeppelin is looking for a second chance after being returned by his adoptive family when they were no longer able to care for him. He is now boarding in the same facility as Mara. Zeppelin may be 8 years old, but don’t let his age fool you. He loves taking walks and would make a great jogging or hiking partner. He is housebroken and crate trained, and Zeppelin has been an all star with his obedience training and he is very attentive, focused and calm. He will make a great companion for an active family, but one that has no other pets and older (teenage) children. 

Mara and Zepp have their own Facebook page where you can learn more about their latest activities and get in touch with their Paws New England team – click HERE. And to learn more about Paws New England visit their website http://pawsnewengland.com/.

hershey

It’s time to introduce you to Hershey. Hershey is a 10-year-old male Dachshund and he arrived at the Animal Protection Center of Southeastern Massachusetts in Brockton just a few days ago. Hershey has lived with his one owner his entire life, but now finds himself at the shelter due to his owner’s death. Hershey is as sweet as they come but being in the shelter is stressing him out and he just wants to be held and just wants to hang out with people. Even though Hershey is small he has a lot of energy and enjoys play time and going for walks. He gets along great with other smaller dogs but he cannot be in a home with cats at all. Come by the shelter today to meet Hershey! Visit our website to learn more about the shelter and see photos of many very worthy animals all looking for their forever homes: http://www.apcsm.org/

lexi

This is Lexi, a petite tabby and white nine year old lady cat. Her story doesn’t have a great beginning, but she is hoping for a happy ending. 

Lexi was in another shelter and was scheduled to be euthanized the day she was saved by a cat rescuer. Her rescuer knew she was adoptable even though she is a little older and has a thyroid condition, so she was brought to Standish Humane Society in Duxbury to find a forever home. (By the way, Standish will pay the cost of Lexi’s thyroid tests and medication for the rest of her life!) 

Lexi has been at Standish a while now, and she wants a forever home so much. She is very good about taking her thyroid pills, so that is no problem. Lexi doesn’t hear all that well, but that doesn’t bother her at all. She uses her eyesight to observe her environment, and because she doesn’t hear well, her eyesight is particularly keen. Cats adapt easily, and they can live a full life even if a few things aren’t perfect. 

When Lexi heads to her forever home, she wants to be the best lap cat ever. She loves to sit in laps, and she loves to take naps in laps. Her perfect human companion will be someone who wants a furry, purring ball of love who will love and adore him or her. Lexi is not the kind of cat who plays with toys a lot or runs around the house. If you adopt Lexi, she will want to be near you, and she will watch television with you, sit with you while you read or knit, and she will quietly follow you around, offering to warm your lap whenever you want. 

Please help Lexi write a happy ending to her sad story. She promises to be the best cat ever! You can watch a video of Lexi HERE!

If you think that Lexi 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. You may also fill out an online adoption application on the website’s Adoptions page. Once your application is approved, a volunteer from the Adoption Team will contact you and work diligently to schedule a tour of the facility. There are so many great cats at Standish Humane Society that even if you decide Lexi is 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. 

Please note, adoptions are by appointment only.

For more information, please visit the website http://www.standishhumane.org or send email to standishhumane@comcast.net. Please include your phone number in your message.
Every day is KittiePawLooza Day at Standish Humane Society!

Today’s pet of the week isn’t a dog or a cat. It’s a rabbit! Meet Owlet, a sweet little gal who loves to snuggle! This beautiful lady is a New Zealand rabbit (mix) about 5 months old. She’s incredibly friendly and curious and she’s looking for a new place to bunny bounce about, kick back, and relax! She’s going to be a big bunny, so she needs a lot of space to exercise, play, and stretch out! Owlet is a very interactive rabbit and likes to be part of what is happening! Head to the Animal Protection Center of Southeastern Massachusetts in Brockton to meet her today! If you are interested in adoption, please come prepared with a plan for housing her. She is an indoor rabbit only.

Lou

Meet Lou Lou! Lou is a 2-3 year old female pit bull mix. Click HERE to check out all the amazing photos of Lou Lou on Facebook! She is from a local shelter where she was found as a stray. She’s a very sweet girl who loves belly rubs and hanging out with her people! She’s eager to please and very fast to learn. She’s a medium energy girl who loves to play. Lou Lou has been professionally trained and continues to train now. She’s a superb student! She loves all the dogs on her weekly pack walks, too. She would love another pup pal to play with in her forever home. 

 

Lou Lou has mastered her basic obedience commands (on and off leash), is house trained and crate trained. She enjoys her quiet time in her crate with treats. She is still learning to share so her new home needs to be mindful of toys and meal times. Lou would do best with a strong leader to help her make the best decisions. She’d love for her new family to continue training with her and take advantage of the lifetime training support that comes with her. Yes! Lifetime support! So amazing! She does well with dogs, adults and teens but not with cats. Lou Lou has so much love to give…you can see it in her sweet, kind eyes. She would add so much laughter and fun to the right home! If you are interested in adopting her, please fill out the Survivor Tales adoption application found at http://www.survivortales.org or email adoptions@survivortales.org.

Chrome

Meet Chrome! Chrome is a handsome 1 yr. old St. Bernard mix. He’s the sweetest, most loving gentle soul. Chrome weighs about 60 lbs and is great with other dogs and with kids, just not sure about cats. He wants to be around his people and he wants to protect them. He and his brother Chevy were abandoned at a local body shop. Chrome was hit by a car and had several surgeries before he could travel up North from Arkansas. He has overcome a lot while he was there in AR but the team at Last Hope K9 Rescue is still working on his fear of men. He is learning that men are not bad and is starting to warm up to them rather quickly. Chrome’s foster family lives outside of city limits next to a wooded area and they tell us he’s scared of all types of sound noises like gun shots, fireworks, and loud thunder. He’s crate trained but prefers to sleep next to your bed. He’ll watch you until you’re settled in bed and give him a hug & say “I love you Chrome”. And he’ll go to sleep. He’s completely house trained and a true love bug! The family who he chooses will win the jackpot with Chrome!

If you’re interested in adopting Chrome and learning more about him please visit www.lasthopek9.org.

Yogi

This big lovable goofball is Yogi! Yogi is a 4-year-old Labrador/Retriever mix. Yogi has spent most of his time at an Animal Control facility before heading to the Animal Protection Society of Southeastern MA in Brockton in December. He is a perfect mixture of calm and being active. While he loves his walks and does extremely well on a harness he is ready to come sleep next to you on the sofa! He has been in a kennel too long and is ready for his forever home. Please pop by the shelter and meet him or call and ask for Trisha to set up a “quiet time” appointment with this gentle big man, and they can tell you all about him. You can also see photos of Yogi on their Facebook page HERE!

Henry

Meet Henry! Henry is an adorable 2-year-old Chihuahua who is looking for a new family to love! Henry prefers human companions over canine ones and since he doesn’t like to share, he would do best as the only dog in the home. Henry is spunky and playful and then he’s also super happy to snuggle up with his pals. Henry is not open to sharing food with anyone so a home without young children is a must. If you’ve got an open lap and some love to share this holiday season, come check out Henry!

To meet HENRY, you can send an email to the crew at the Scituate Animal Shelter at info@scituateanimalshelter.org, call them at (781) 544-4533, or come in any time during their open hours (listed below!).

If you’d like to get the process started, follow the link http://scituateanimalshelter.org/adopt/make-a-match/ to fill out their survey. You can either print it out and bring it in or submit it right online and one of their adoption counselors will give you a call. If you fill out the form online rather than printing it out, just mention HENRY in your answer to the last question.

Open Hours:
Tues & Wed: 12 PM – 6 PM
Thurs: 3 PM – 7 PM
Sat: 10 AM – 5 PM

Brady

At 1 1/2 years old, Brady is a sweet, loving and handsome boy who found himself homeless before arriving at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue. He is a calm and loving, playful guy. He has sensitive kidneys that require CD food which is specially formulated for cats with kidney or bladder issues, and that keeps him healthy and happy.  

A handsome tuxedo, he has fabulous long, white whiskers, the sweetest white mustache and a paintbrush stroke down his nose giving him such good looks! Golden eyes complete his handsome face.

Brady spent time in a loving foster home and now wants a forever home where he feels comfy and loved. It will be playtime, affection and attention that he will enjoy. If you have a heart as big as Brady’s, maybe you could offer him the life he truly deserves!

Please call Judy at Hull Seaside Animal Rescue at 781-534-4902 for more information on Brady.

Boo! Meet Boo! Boo is a 5 year old male Chihuahua. He is a little shy at first and would prefer that his next owner be a woman. Once Boo feels comfortable he will be climbing into your lap or trying to get you to pick him up to carry him.  He’s very affectionate and has plenty of energy to go for walks and to play, but he really does enjoy curling up in his bed and napping.  Boo would also do best in a home where he is the only dog.  If you think you could be a good fit for Boo, please contact the Quincy Animal Shelter and arrange a visit! You can also email k9@quincyanimalshelter.org!

Meet Gracie. Gracie is a 1/12-year-old, 35 lb. hound mix and Gracie is looking for a fur-ever home with a buddy who likes to cuddle as much as she does! Her favorite thing in the world is to snuggle up on the couch and give lots and lots of kisses. When you get home, she will be sure to give you a big hug and sometimes she wags her tail so hard, her foster mom thinks it’s going to fall off. She loves to hold hands and be as close to you as possible, so if you want a dog that is going to love you more than life itself, she is your girl. Gracie is off-leashed trained and has been living with a trainer who’s given her all of the e-collar skills she needs and will gladly teach Gracie’s new owner (for free!) how to work with her on one. Gracie would do best in a home that wants to keep working on them with her. She sometimes has trouble with toys, so she would do best without them. Playing with her foster mom is all the playtime she needs! Gracie gets along great with all of the dogs that she lives with right now and would love having a doggy brother or sister, but it’s not required for her new home. She, however, is not a big fan of cats or other small animals, though. She sleeps really well in her crate with a soft blanket and water bowl. She is quiet all through the night and never has accidents. Gracie is looking for a family to love her, especially one with older children who can understand resource guarding and learn about her personality. Gracie is a fun, incredibly loving dog and would love to be your new best friend.

If you’re interested in adopting Gracie please visit us at www.lasthopek9.org to apply.

shadow

Shadow is a friendly and mellow guy who is looking for a special guardian to care for him. He was well loved by his former elderly guardian who is close to passing away. Shadow is currently at Brewster Animal Hospital while they try to get his diabetes regulated. He is very sweet and easy going. He is amiable, affectionate and is happy to be pet. He is relaxed when meeting new people. The vet staff say he does not mind when curious kids and dogs go over to check him out in his compartment. They also report that he likes to follow them around and has adjusted to being in a new environment well. He is an endearing cat who likes to hang out around people without being demanding. Shadow will be a great companion and member of the family. 

Shadow is hoping for a responsible guardian who is able to work with his diabetes. Please speak with Brewster Veterinary Hospital regarding his medical needs. He is looking for a loving and caring forever home where he can share his love with you.

PLEASE CONTACT BREWSTER ANIMAL HOSPITAL at (508)896-2540 for all inquiries if you are interested in giving Shadow a lifetime forever home. You can see more photos of Shadow at the New England Society for Abandoned Animal’s pet pages HERE.

P and LB

Today we want to introduce you to a dynamic duo. Although Lady Bird and Priscilla do not need to be adopted together, they are certainly the best of friends. They were rescued together in a law enforcement operation and are two very loving and lovable dogs.

Priscilla, pictured on the left, is a 9-year-old hound hound mix. She loves chasing her ball, sniffing, and getting belly rubs – all the simple joys of a dogs life! Lady Bird, pictured on the right, is an 8-year-old female hound mix. Lady Bird loves being outside, and running and romping through the fields. She also loves a good scratch behind her long ears!

Lady Bird and Priscilla are currently residing at the Milton Animal Leagues animal shelter and they would love to meet you! Again, they do not need to be adopted together, but I couldn’t talk about one of these lovable gals without mentioning the other! For details and for information on how you can meet Priscilla and Lady Bird visit www.miltonanimalleague.org/. You can also find more pictures on their Facebook page HERE.
