Every now and then, we come across a special dog who needs a little extra help finding a home. This week, we’re focusing our Adoption Spotlight on Dash, a friendly 4-year-old pup who is ready to find his forever family.
Dashcame to the ASPCA in April 2014 after being rescued by the New York City Police Department (NYPD). Over the course of the past year under our care, Dash has become a staff favorite and has bonded with many of our Animal Care Technicians (ACTs). This lovebug is currently thriving as a foster in the home of ASPCA Veterinarian Dr. Jasmine Bruno, but he is eager to find a “forever home” to call his own.
Dr. Bruno reports: “Dash is an incredible dog who I would say is the perfect definition of a ‘gentle giant.’ All he wants is a companion that will give him the same amount of affection that he gives non-stop. He gets along great with cats and loves meeting new people and dogs, although he can be a little shy at first. His perfect day at home would consist of spending time sleeping on his favorite pillow, gnawing on his bully sticks, going for nice long walks in the park and playing with his rope toy.”
If you’re interested in adopting Dash, please call our Adoption Center in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about Dash, please visit his profile page.
Curious pup Otis leaves no stone unturned! This inquisitive guy loves to sniff around and explore his surroundings—there’s nothing he’d like more than a Saturday by your side roaming Central Park. This funny guy will keep you laughing with his playful antics, but, like most city dwellers, he’s in a rush to get to where he’s going!
At times, Otis will bark to let you know he wants something and may be protective of his food, but our Behavioral team is available to give you tips on how to control this behavior. Otis would do best in an adults-only household with an experienced adopter who can give him lots of exercise and playtime. Adopt Otis today!
Otis is available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting, please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about Otis, please visit his profile page.
Olivia is a sweet and social cat who would love to be your new best friend. This pretty lady loves attention from her favorite people, but prefers it on her own terms—let her sniff your hand, and once you’re friends, she’ll happily let you scratch her head and face.
It may take Olivia some time to adjust to her new home, but with the help of some yummy treats and her favorite toys, she’ll start to relax in no time. Although she likes affection, Olivia prefers not be picked up and is sensitive to touch around her stomach and tail. This sweet girl would like to be the only cat in the household and would do best with an experienced adopter familiar with feline body language. Adopt Olivia today!

Meet Wonder Woman! Just like her namesake, this pretty pup has lots of energy to spare. She would be thrilled to go home with a new best friend who will spend lots of time running around with her to keep her busy, happy and healthy. This smart girl already knows how to “sit” and could learn a few more tricks, too—especially if her favorite treats are involved!
Wonder Woman is friendly and affectionate with her favorite people, but she may need some time to warm up to strangers. This sweet girl is also interested in playing with other dogs. Given time to learn how to play politely, we think she could make some canine friends. Wonder Woman would do best with an experienced adopter. Adopt Wonder Woman today!

Every now and then, we come across a special pet who needs a little extra help finding a home. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we’re focusing our Adoption Spotlight on Patty, a sweet and affectionate cat who is who is ready to find his forever family.
Need a St. Patrick’s Day sidekick? Look no further than Patty. This handsome cat is currently being fostered at the ASPCA offices, but he can’t wait to join a loving home. We know he’ll make one lucky adopter very happy!
Patty is an affectionate cat who loves attention from his favorite humans. He can be shy at first and it might take him some time to settle into his new home, but don’t be fooled. With a little space to himself and some yummy treats, he’ll come out of his shell for lots of playtime in no time.
This stately guy is big fan of chin scratches and gentle pets on the back—oh yeah, and plenty of naps! His foster mom says he has the most adorable soft snore. When he’s not sleeping, Patty takes his job of monitoring the world outside your windows very seriously. Patty even makes a great assistant—he’ll remind you if you’re late with breakfast or dinner and will inspect your lunch on a daily basis.
Patty has a couple of special health conditions and can be particular about his litter box, but our Behavioral team can walk you through the best ways to manage his needs. If you are interested in adopting Patty, please call our Adoptions Department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about Patty, please visit his profile page.
