Every now and then, we come across a special dog in our Adoption Center who needs a little extra help finding a home. This week, we’re turning our Adoption Spotlight to Guadalupe, a sweet three-year-old pup who is sure to make some lucky adopter very happy!
Guadalupe came to the ASPCA in May after being rescued from an abusive situation. At first, she was very frightened and hesitant to come out of her kennel, but after extensive training—including learning leash manners with the help of a fake dog—she began to come out of her shell. In fact, once she got comfortable, Guadalupe let us all see what a hilarious goofball she really is!
Guadalupe loves to look at herself in the mirror, chew on pig ears, and put her toys in a pile while she plays with them. She is much more comfortable with women than with men, but she has been living with a foster family since September and has grown to love her foster dad. She enjoys trips to the countryside and has been slowly meeting new dogs and people. Because Guadalupe is nervous with all the busyness of city life, she would do best in a home in the suburbs or the country.
Guadalupe is a very special girl who has been through a lot. She would love nothing more than to open her heart to her very own forever family!
If you are interested in adopting Guadalupe, please contact the ASPCA Adoption Center at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120.
If you’re in the market for a new best friend, look no further than Ruth. She may seem shy at first, but don’t be fooled—once this pretty girl gets to know you, she’ll stick by your side like glue. With a little patience, a lot of love and her favorite toys, Ruth will warm up to her new family in no time.
This sweet girl plays well with others and would make a great best friend to your resident dog. Like most New Yorkers, Ruth loves to be on the move and prefers daily exercise to stay happy and healthy. She’d be thrilled to join you for a jog through the park or spend an afternoon playing with her canine buddies at the dog park. Ruth would do best with an experienced adopter in a household with kids ages 10-and-up. Adopt Ruth today!
Ruth 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 Ruth, please visit her profile page.
Attention animal lovers: November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month, and we’d love for you to consider giving a home to an older cat or dog in need. Animal shelters across the country are full of animals of all shapes, sizes, breeds and ages, but senior pets are typically the most difficult to place.
We’re on the brink of the holiday season, and we can’t think of a better time to provide a home for a shelter pet. Visit our Adopt section to find available senior dogs and cats near you, and help one less animal spend the holiday season in a shelter.
Are you the proud parent of a senior pet? Tell us in the comments!
November is Senior Pet Month at the ASPCA! To celebrate, we’ll be featuring some of our favorite adoptable senior pets all month long.
Snuggles is a sweet and social cat who enjoys lots of attention from her favorite people. This low maintenance girl loves to sleep and is happiest when snoozing on the couch by your side—but bring out her favorite toys and a few yummy treats, and she’ll be ready for playtime in no time!
Although Snuggles loves affection, she prefers not be picked up. We think she may become more comfortable with handling once she’s settled into her new home. This special girl suffers from a few medical conditions, but our Adoptions team is available to walk you through the best ways to manage her health needs. Snuggles would be thrilled to have your attention all to herself and would do best as the only cat in the household. Adopt Snuggles today!
Snuggles 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 Snuggles, please visit her profile page.
The ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in Madison, New Jersey, is the first and only facility dedicated to providing behavioral rehabilitation for fearful, undersocialized dogs, such as those confiscated from puppy mills and hoarding situations. In our regular “Pup and Circumstance” column, we introduce the Rehab Center’s latest graduates in hopes of finding each one the loving forever home they deserve.
Break out the cap and gown, another amazing dog just graduated from the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center! Today’s canine alumna is Lucy, a blue brindle Cane Corso who is eager and ready to find a family of her very own.
Life for Lucy hasn’t always been easy. This special girl was found as a stray in Pennsylvania and had all the physical signs of having been used as a breeding dog. At the Rehab Center, Lucy underwent an intensive program to tackle her anxiety—and her true, incredibly sweet personality quickly began to shine. She was placed in a foster home, where she loves to snuggle and play the day away.
Lucy is now looking for a permanent home with gentle, loving adopters. . Ideally, she’ll join a family that already has another confident, playful dog. She lived with a cat in her foster home, so feline companions are okay, too!
Lucy is sure to make some lucky adopter very happy. If you are interested in bringing this sweet girl home, please contact the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center directly via email at [email protected] or call 973-377-5609.
