Pet of the Week: Dewey PDF Print Email


By Allison Roesser

May 15, 2019: Four-year-old Dewey was rescued from a housing project just off of Dewey Avenue in the Bronx. He was part of a cat colony that was being fed by volunteers. Over time, the volunteers get to know most of the cats in the colonies, and when they noticed he was losing weight, they decided it was time for him to leave the streets. 

Dewey turned out to be a real charmer. His calm and mellow disposition gives him an air of sophistication, and though he may look like a tough guy, he is surprisingly just a gentle teddy bear full of affection and congeniality. When he meows, it sounds as if he is saying the word “hi,” and when he loves, he loves with everything he has.

Dewey gets along with the other cats and dogs in his foster home and is extremely gentle with children. This low-maintenance fellow wants only what we all do ... a place to call home with people who care. 

Dewey has been vetted and neutered. He tested positive for FeLV, so he needs to go to a home with another FELV (+) cat or be your one-and-only kitty. Otherwise, he is in perfect health. Dewey would make the perfect pet for a first-time cat owner. 

For more information about Dewey, please email Courtney at CLOAKING or text his foster mom, Tanya, at 912-200-0086.

Pet of the Week: Shelly, Saved from a Kill Shelter PDF Print Email


By Allison Roesser

May 8, 2019: Meet Shelly, an adorable 35-pound, three-year-old terrier mix who is everything you could want in a dog--she loves other pups, doesn't mind cats, and adores children. 

Shelly is a sweetheart who enjoys giving kisses and cuddling under the blankets. Besides being the sweetest girl, she is also the cutest. With one ear that always stands straight up and the other, which delicately curls forward, Shelly always seems to display a goofy and quizzical expression that is sure to tug on your heartstrings.

Shelly and her pups were confiscated from a home because of neglect. They were then taken to a local kill shelter and quickly removed and brought to a rescue group. Since she lived inside a home her entire life, she knows how to be a well-mannered and respectful girl. She is house-broken, crate-trained, non-destructive, and calm. She is also a spectacular car rider and leash walker.

Shelly has been living in a foster home with dogs and cats and everyone gets along great.  When children come to visit, she perks up and becomes extra jovial. She would make a perfect family pet and wants so badly to have a family to call her own.

Shelly went through heartworm treatment and is now healthy and heartworm negative. She has been spayed and microchipped and is up to date with her vaccinations.

If you would like more information about Shelly, please email  CLOAKING .

Pet of the Week: Ellie, Used for Breeding and then Thrust into the Cold PDF Print Email


By Allison Roesser

Apr. 17, 2019: Ellie has not had an easy time in life. It was discovered that someone was using this outdoor kitty to breed, letting her inside to have her babies, selling the kittens, and then releasing her back out into the cold. 

This was done to her several times, but as soon as a local rescue group learned what was going on, they were able to find Ellie and bring her to safety.

When Ellie was picked up, she was pregnant again. She delivered five little kittens who have all found homes; now it is Ellie’s chance to have a good life.

Ellie looks to be part Abyssinian. She is two-and-half years old and in perfect health. She is super playful and extremely sweet. She would do best in a home as your one-and-only considering everything she has been through. This lovely lady was treated so poorly in the short life she has lived, but she has many wonderful years ahead of her and just wants to be cared for and treated with love and respect.

For more information, please email  CLOAKING  or call her foster mom at 914-713-8649. The adoption donation for Ellie is $125, which helps to provide her with daily and medical care.
