Winston - Armonk, NY

Winston has stolen our hearts.  What a sad story.  He is a 10 yr old male castrated Pit Bull who weighs in at 50 lbs. 

We found Winston at a local municipal shelter where he had been living for months. He rarely got out of his kennel and was not socialized with many new people. We decided to bring him to our shelter to try to give him a better quality of life while he waits for his perfect home to come along. It takes some time for Winston to build trust with a new person but when he does he is incredibly loyal and loving.


There is nothing this boy loves more than to sit at the feet of his person and just relax in their presence. He is definitely worth the effort because once he loves someone it is for life! He has been through a lot in his life and is so deserving of a forever home. He has been through strict obedience training and has excelled in the routine of training. He also thoroughly enjoys agility training and taking long walks.


Whoever adopts Winston will need to have the dedication to commit to bonding with him and continuing his training so he can be the best dog he can be for the rest of his long and happy life. In a perfect world, he would be the only pet in an adult only home, but he does have the potential to live with another easy-going female dog. Lets find Winston his forever home!

For more information about Winston you can call (914) 273-1674 or email: adoptions@adoptadog.org.  Visit the website at https://adopt-a-dog.org/.

Nya - Queens, NY

This beautiful girl is Nya.  She is a 9 yr old, 52 lb, female spayed Pittie.



From her rescue:  Rescue friends and family, we desperately need your help. Nine year old Nya was diagnosed just days ago with transitional cell carcinoma, a cancer which affects her bladder and urinary tract. Yesterday we went to our trusted oncologist here in Queens who wants to start her on chemotherapy ASAP. However, we need to find a kind, loving soul who will open their heart and home to precious Nya immediately as her current foster is too far away.


Nya is gentle, sweet and her favorite thing to do is cuddle. She loves nothing more than curling up with her human on the couch. While she is same size doggie friendly, her foster hero will need to have the ability to separate due to the chemotherapy. We will cover absolutely anything and everything you will need for Nya. Time is of the essence and we must find her hero immediately in order to start treatment.


We rescued Nya along with her mother Zion from a filthy yard in Far Rockaway. Sadly, her mother is also going through chemotherapy, and is currently living with us, which is why we can't take Nya in ourselves at this moment. The girls (Nya & Zion) suffered immensely in their lives prior to rescue, as they were forced to live outside through scorching summers and blistering winters. We have known the girls for 8 years now and cared for their every need the best we could while they lived outside until we were granted custody of them in court. To say we love them is an understatement. We are looking for a foster in the NYC/ LI area. To be her hero today please apply and or contact us through redemptionrescues.org

Gumball - Smithtown, NY (10/10/19 still avail)

This cutie pie is Gumball!  He is an 8 yr old, 6 lb neutered male Yorkie.

Gumball is very sweet!! He has a lot of love to give. He is blind and needs to be only dog as he gets a little feisty when he accidentally bumps into another dog. Even with his sight impairment, he does navigate his way very well up the stairs and in the yard. When taken outside, he will go to the bathroom. He loves to be picked up and held and walks great on a leash. He needs to be in a quiet home where he can feel safe and loved, so older children only, please. In return he will give lots of love and kisses!! 

For more information please visit www.Yorkie911rescue.com or email yorkie911rescue@gmail.com.  Gumball's rescue would like him to stay within the tri-state area.

Lucy - Rochester, NY  (12/7/19)

Meet Lucy!  Lucy is a 10 yr old, 10 lb, female spayed toy Poodle. 

Lucy is an adorable girl who is very loving and always interested in what is going on around her. She is very loyal and uses her best efforts to act as a protector to those she loves- size means nothing to this little girl! She has developed congestive heart failure over the last year and is on 3 medications to keep her heart healthy.


She has lived with multiple cats her whole life and has done great with them! She also does very well around children and new people. She would be so easy to add to a family. This sweet girl needs someone who will love her and care for her as she will love and care for them!

For all information, please contact Kelly: 585-738-5255.

Kayne - Horseheads, NY  (1/4/20)

Meet Kayne!  He is a 9 yr old, 88 lb, neutered male Rottie.

Kayne is a senior dog that came to us from animal control. We estimated his age to be 9-10 yrs. Kayne has the sweetest disposition and just loves people but he needs to be an only pet.  We recommend a home with older children only.


In terms of his special needs, well his hips are not the greatest. He also sometimes falls due to nerve damage in his paws. We started injections of Adequan with the addition of Meloxicam and Gabapetin for pain. He is also Lyme tested positive so he might have flare ups.


We are working on getting some weight off his hips and hope to continue in keeping the weight off. He loves short walks and sleeping on a memory foam orthopedic bed. We do what we can in a shelter environment but this guy really needs a retirement home to spend the rest of his days. Please help if you can!  

The shelter would like Kayne to be adopted relatively locally.  For all information please contact Horseheads Community Animal Shelter. Located at: 150 Wygant Rd. Horseheads, NY 14845.  Website: http://www.horseheadscommunityanimalshelter.com. Email: office@horseheadscommunityanimalshelter.com

Cole - Horseheads, NY  (1/4/20)

Meet Cole!  Cole is a 9 yr old, 45 lb, neutered male Beagle/Lab mix.

Cole is a senior dog that just loves walks, human interaction, and most of all food. Which we have to limit because he loves it so much! Now that Cole is a bit forward in years things are a bit slower in his joints and rightly so. He is Lyme positive and will need meds when he has flare ups.


Despite his special needs it doesn't stop this boy from enjoying himself. He has been within a shelter environment for over a year with being adopted once but returned. Poor guy. With age sometimes he needs to go potty more often then younger dogs and could have a few accidents if people aren't paying attention.


He likes his time with his humans cuddling on the couch, walking, just being included. Cole has to be the only pet in the home. A fence might be worthwhile but not necessary. He does have a hound nose and will track what he smells so a leash would be required if no fenced yard. This boy has been waiting for his home far too long and really deserves to find a family to love him.  He is SO loveable!

The shelter would like Cole to be adopted relatively locally.  For all information please contact Horseheads Community Animal Shelter. Located at: 150 Wygant Rd. Horseheads, NY 14845.  Website: http://www.horseheadscommunityanimalshelter.com. Email: office@horseheadscommunityanimalshelter

Cocoa - Rockaway Park, NY (1/10/20)

Meet Cocoa!  She is a 13 yr old, female spayed, lab/shepherd mix. HER EXPENSES ARE COVERED!!

Cocoa is looking for a hospice hero, could it be you? 13 year old Cocoa ended up at Animal Control when her former owner became too sick to care for her. She has been in our care for a few weeks now and she is an absolute sweetheart. We are looking for an incredibly special person who is willing to foster her for as many days as she has left.


Cocoa’s medical condition is terminal and her internist has told us while there is nothing we can do medically at this point for her she isn’t uncomfortable and still has a good quality of life. So until this changes we are looking for someone who can open up their heart and home to her. Cocoa was great with the dogs and cat at her short term foster’s house. However, due to her degree of fragility and sickness, we are looking for an only dog home.


Cocoa has an enlarged heart, liver, a mass on spleen and enlarged lymph nodes. This is likely to be cancer. She is housebroken but can have accidents. She is also wee wee pad trained. If you are within 90 minutes of NYC, please consider making all of Cocoa’s dreams come true and contact us. We will cover all her expenses.

For all inquiries, please email: Sloane@zionsmission.org or call: 917-648-9808
