Welcome Meech

Meech is a 4 year old male Shiba who was brought into NYCSR foster care this Sunday. His family was not able to bring him along in a move, so they reached out to us to make sure he was given the best care & a great new home.

Sparkle for the Shibas

For a small donation of $15, you can reserve a box in our grid pool. A random drawing will be held on Sunday, August 24th for three winners. Each winner will have their choice of $250 worth of Touchtone Crystal by Swarovski Jewelry.

Wonderful Ms Bea

Say Hello to Makeda

Our newest foster dog, Makeda, is tiny, friendly, playful and does well with other dogs, although larger dogs do tend to make her nervous.

Welcome to Sweet Sable

Sable was possibly hit by a car. She has a broken toe and another broken bone in the same foot/leg which is splinted. In spite of her injury, she kissed the nose of our volunteer who evaluated her at AC&C.

Welcome Kitsu!

Kitsu will be 12 years old in July. He is nervous around children, gets along with other dogs (better when he’s not leashed), and has lived with a cat.

Welcome Sweet Lisa!
