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.
