Happy Endings: When we set out on this endeavor, our intention was to help families keep their dogs while they were dealing with hurricane related housing problems. However, we found a variety of needs along the way including some families who need to rehome their dogs as they can't see their way to a point in time when they can properly care for the dog, given their current circumstances. Such is the case with Blaze. Blaze's owner told us Blaze needed to find a permanent home and was willing to allow a foster to take him and see if it was a good match. The foster agreed to the terms and knew when they took him that Blaze was in need of a forever home. It looks like a match has been made, though from the sound of this video, Dad will need to come to terms with the fact that the dogs apparently control all the sticks in the woods, and they are in fact not his;)

Rescue Dogs Become Best Friends With Rescue Ducklings.

via Life of Pikelet

This dog was found in one of the primary areas of assistance for Sandy Dog Nannies. What we learned about Pit Bull culture in this area was astounding. People breed Pit Bulls, sell each pup for $100 (without any vetting or shots), dogs live in apartments and never go outside, some are chained inside, at some point in their lives, usually between the ages of 2 and 5, these dogs will end up in a kill shelter and are promptly killed because their owners can't/won't care for the...m. (We had no experience with dog fighters to our knowledge. Those folks would not ask for anyone to help them care for their dogs). Many of the dogs in the area received the first vetting of their lives after the disaster with the help of the Rachel Ray ASPCA shelter, us, and other organizations on the ground assisting the animals and their owners. We insisted every dog we helped be spayed and neutered (through free services). Some people refused our help because of that requirement. We still believe it was the right thing to do. This is a serious cultural problem. Please spay and neuter your dogs (and cats). Don't let puppies fall into the hands of dog fighters or kill shelters.

Justice for Copper!
Abused with open bite wounds, flea ridden and left for dead, a young Pitbull puppy was found zipped up in a blue duffle bag on the front st...eps of Bobbi and the Strays. On Saturday afternoon, a volunteer, back from a dog walk, found the blue duffle bag. When the bag was opened, there lay Copper, curled up tight in a ball shaking from the cold and unresponsive. A large, open bite mark was noticed on his rear leg. Copper was rushed to our local vet. Upon examination by the vet, Copper was emaciated, severely dehydrated, barely able to stand, and had an extremely low body temperature. He was also more than 15 lbs. underweight with fresh bite wounds, as well scars from old injures. Due to the nature of his injuries, it is clear that this little fella was used for bait. The Freeport Police department is involved. It is also our concern that there may be more from his litter. Dumping animals and using animals for bait are both criminal offenses.
Please help us find the person/s that did this to Copper. If you have any information that can lead to an arrest, please contact Nassau County DA Animal Crime Unit at 516 571-2245.
It will take extensive resources to rehabilitate Copper back to a healthy, stable condition. If you would like to donate to help with his ongoing medical costs, please donate through (our PayPal account)
or mail a check to:

Ozone Park, NY 11417
(Please note that your donation is for Copper)

Golden Huggs foster mom, adopter, friend and ultimate volunteer Maureen Kahill-Brown and her family who live in Poultney were hammered by last nights storm/torn...ado. Trees everywhere and Eric's car totaled by a tree that fell on it. Maureen told me it "sounded like a freight train was going through the house" and "we ran around shutting windows" and " you can see the path in town the tornado took" and "it looks like a war zone but our house is still standing - we have no power so the kids are with friends, Eric and I need to stay in the house for the dogs". Amidst all the chaos, Maureen and her husband Eric were told by a neighbor he "saw something fly through the air" but he didn't know what it was. Eric heard a cry and took off slogging through downed trees and storm aftermath where he found a kitten!!! Cold, shivering and in shock they took her home and nursed her through the night. She is doing well today and saw the vet. So...what do you do with a kitten when you have 5 dogs to take care of in a house with no power? You look to your community to help!!!! TWISTER a female kitten that needs to find a home! Please message me if you can help Twister with a home of her own! Please share TWISTER in hopes we can get her a home!

Monmouth County SPCA

Imagine this:

Your family dog is lost during Hurricane Sandy. After searching and giving up hope, 1.5 years later you decide to adopt a dog. You head to the Mo...nmouth County SPCA, meet with an adoption counselor and plan on meeting some dogs.
The adoption counselor brings in your first candidate and guess what; it’s YOUR DOG!

Lucas came to the Monmouth County SPCA in November and had been waiting for his forever family. Volunteers have even said he seemed like he was looking for someone. Now we know Lucas (who’s real name is Reckless) was searching for his family!
