Adoptable Pets of the Week


  • Breed: Labrador Retriever
  • Gender: Female
  • Born in 2004
  • Great with other dogs

Petra lived with 12 kids in her former home. But when the 13th child came along, the family decided the dog had to go, so poor Petra ended up at a shelter. This sweet, friendly girl is nice to everybody she meets -- both people and dogs. She adores petting, and sometimes barks to ask for attention. Born in 2004, she has a history of ear infections, but is otherwise healthy. Petra is an easygoing girl who just wants to be loved. Could you give her the chance to have a home and family again?


  • Breed: Domestic longhair
  • Gender: Male
  • Born in 2007
  • Great with other cats

Anthony introduces himself by reaching out his paw to touch your hand. This handsome cat adores people and is happiest when he's being petted, or cuddling in your lap. He also enjoys following his caregivers around like a puppy! A dapper Russian Blue-mix, Anthony keeps his soft grey fur impeccably groomed. He's also good with other cats and would welcome feline friends in his new home.

Born in 2007, Anthony lost his home when his person passed away. Anthony has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, but he's doing just fine. Cats who are FIV+ can live long, healthy lives, and it's very hard for other cats to catch. Anthony is a lover, not a fighter! If you're looking for an easygoing guy, Anthony would be the perfect fit for your home!

Please help me get rid of the KILL Shelters here in NYC. They have the legal right but are killing innocent kittens just because they have a cold. The boss is on a killing spree of up to 13 cats a day.

Please help.
