We are happy to announce that we are working closely with Barc Shelter, 253 Wythe Avenue, Williamsburg, NY 11211, to feature some of the many dogs that they have available for adoption each month. Read the short bios below and if you are interested in meeting one of the featured dogs please call them directly at 718-486-7489 or send an e-mail to email@example.com for more details and to learn about all of the wonderful rescued dogs they have available for adoption.
Andy- Andy was brought into a high kill shelter after being found in the Bronx. He had five severed tendons in his front legs. He had lost most of his blood, and must have been in excruciating pain, yet he is so stoic he never so much as whimpered. Andy's noble and giant heart won him a foster who stood by him while he received stellar medical care. He has since recovered spiritually and physically, to say the least. Where most of the world has body issues, Andy is very, very pleased to show off his
perfect belly. In fact, it is hard to get him off his back, because as soon as he greets you with kisses, he flops over belly up, starts to move his back legs so he can get a good back scratch in, and looks up at you with a grin. "Pet me! Pet me! Pet me!" He is a brilliant, made-to-order family dog. He adores children, he adores adults, he adores dogs--especially female dogs. He is absolutely cheerful, and no amount of trampling on him, as a child does, gets him upset. In fact, he only wags his tail harder.
Andy is desperate to be with a family ready to scratch his back; another dog with whom he might romp. Even better, a family with another dog and children whom might scratch his back and romp, with no particular preference for who does what in what order. He is a very mellow, sweet boy who doesn't need a lot of land to roam on. Just a patch of grass to call his own on which to flop. And if that patch of grass has a few clover
leaves, all the better: It is this baby's caviar. Perhaps he's looking for one with four leaves, wishing that he finds a forever home. Please let his clover-munching pay off. It is you who won't believe your luck. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Butler - When our valiant Butler, a
regal-looking 1 year old German Shepherd/Mastiff mix, arrived at a high
kill shelter in New York, he was immediately put on the euthanasia list
for the next day: Unable to stand up, his medical requirements exceeded
those that could be offered. An angel rescued this sweet, 57 pound
angel, and sponsored him for 2.5 months at a vet where he received
surgery and therapy for what ended up being two fractured back
hips.Even in what must have been excruciating pain, Butler immediately
seduced all those who tended to him (even now in his foster home, one
of the vet techs continues to visit and bring him toys!). With his big,
soulful eyes and his gentle spirit, he would sweetly wag his tail and
welcome people to lie down with him and put their arms around him. Once
he could stand, his joyful, playful side was allowed to emerge: He
loves frolicking with other dogs, and he loves being with other people.
Now in his foster home, Butler has made a full recovery. He adores going swimming with his foster canine siblings. He loves to dance on the lawn. He loves it most of all when people will join him in his play. Although
Butler thinks he is a small dog, he is exceedingly tender with both people and dogs, a mild sweetheart. The only thing missing for Butler now is a forever home. Please, won't you come meet our hero? For more information, please contact email@example.com.
Westchester - When we first met Westchester at Animal Care and
Control in Manhattan he immediately
stole our hearts. His back legs were horribly injured, we guessed from
a car accident. But the only wincing that was done was by the humans
looking at him, imagining how much pain this 39 pound, 2 year old
beauty must have been in. Talk about noble: He was, even desperately in
need of surgery and care, even finding himself lost in a kill shelter
with little hope of getting out, let alone receiving the medical
attention he needed, filled with spirit and fun and a sense of delight
in everything around him. He would kiss other dogs through the cages as
he went for a walk, where he relieved himself so quickly it was clear
that he was housebroken. Then, he would turn his kissing to the humans.
He had obviously been terribly mistreated only recently, but he had
nothing but an open, forgiving heart.
We championed him as an
embodiment of love and generosity, and Westchester had his first
stroke of luck: A foster rescued him and provided him with the medical
care he needed. He is now fully healed and is the stunning beauty we
knew he might be. He has since gone on to steal the heart of his foster caretaker and all
those in the vicinity. He has delighted in the company of the other
dogs in his temporary home, he bounds through the fields with abandon
chasing the geese, and he runs into the sea with joy. The only thing
Westchester needs now is one more, final stroke of luck: A forever
home. Please, come meet this boy and discover what it feels like to be
unconditionally adored...and to feel the same way in return.
Zoey - How
is it possible that only several months ago, the exuberant, beautiful
Zoey, abandoned by her owner at a high kill shelter, was leaning
against the legs of volunteers because she was too weak to stand on her
own? Utterly disoriented that after her 1 year old life in the comfort
of a home, she was suddenly on her own, facing certain death?
rescued into a foster home and fully recovered, she runs and leaps and
bounds and jumps into the air as if the air were itself a playmate. She
spreads kisses among humans and dogs as Jackson Pollack scattered
paint, wildly and beautifully. She loves dogs, she loves people, she
loves butterflies, she loves blades of grass...this beautiful spotted Brindle girl
is in love with it all, in love with love.
In the shelter, she was so
depressed we were concerned about her survival; we are equally and
utterly convinced that now, she knows she has been given a second lease
on life, and she isn't missing a second of it. The only thing that Zoey
IS still missing is constant and dependable, forever companionship,
with another human, and perhaps another animal...she isn't picky. But
she is a wonderful dog who craves a place to belong, a person and/or
animal to pay attention to, to play with, with whom to play. We have
given Zoey a chance at another life. Please give
this glorious pup, who is overflowing with delight and love and
goodness, a chance to share her love with others. For more information,
please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
