Every now and then, we come across special adoptable pets that need a little extra help finding a home. This week, we’re shining our Adoption Spotlight on Kissy, Jack and Janet—a trio of playful Akitas who are sure to make their future adopters very happy!
Kissy, Jack and Janet came to the ASPCA after being rescued by the Oregon Humane Society from a large, commercial breeding facility. Their life in the facility had left them terrified of human contact, so they were sent to the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in Madison, New Jersey. Over their four-month course of treatment, each dog’s sweet and special personality began to shine through. At the Rehab Center, they learned how to enjoy everyday activities like going for walks, being pet, coming when called and—most importantly—trusting humans again. Now these loving pups are ready to find their forever homes:
Kissy is a curious 5-year-old girl. She may be shy at first, but don’t let that fool you—this pretty lady would love nothing more than to play with you and her favorite squeaky toys! Kissy likes to play with other dogs and would be thrilled to go home with a patient adopter who can love and care for her.
Looking for a goofy, but clever, new best friend? Jack is your guy. This sweet boy loves going for walks and playing with his favorite toys. Jack loves his dog friends, but may need some training to help improve his manners.
Janet is an energetic girl who loves snow and zooming around a fenced yard! She can be reserved around new people, but this curious girl will warm up for walks through the woods with her new family. Janet likes other dogs and would love to go to a household with a dog friend she can play with.
These sweet dogs have been through a lot and they have so much love to give. They would like nothing more than to find forever families to call their own.

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.
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!
Olivia 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 Olivia, please visit her profile page.

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.
