There's never a dull moment in animal rescue! And sometimes our work extends beyond finding homes for homeless pets. Yesterday we received a call from some Good Samaritans who had spotted a small, scared dog running loose around lower Manhattan without a leash or collar. While Animal Haven doesn't technically have a "field team," the location was nearby our shelter and we knew the poor dog was panicking. So our Director of Operations, Mantat, headed over to the location with a leash, microchip scanner and supplies. He and the Good Samaritans were able to contain the dog in a corner, where they discovered she was absolutely petrified. Mantat held her securely and scanned her for a microchip. Luckily, the dog had a microchip, so Mantat located the dog's name (Jojo) and owner's contact information. Jojo's mom burst into tears when she received his call and rushed to the scene. It turns out Jojo had become spooked on her walk and slipped her collar, and her mom had been frantically searching for her. This is a photo of their beautiful reunion. We are so thankful for this incredible community of animal lovers that surround us, and for our amazing staff who go above and beyond their job descriptions every day! ❀️ . . . #animalhaven #thankful #thankyou #lostdog #founddog #reunion #reunitedanditfeelssogood #dogstory #animalrescue #saveadog #neveradullmoment

‼️Rumple STILL needs your help!‼️ Here we are again. Round 2. We reached out about a month ago asking for a hospice foster for our precious 12-year-old boy Rumple. Though he's been in some short term foster situations since then, he still hasn't landed in a long-term home and has now been in the shelter system for over 800 days. 😭😭😭We're not sure how much time Rumple has left on this earth, but we're determined to make sure he spends it in a warm, loving, comfortable home - not a shelter. Rumple is wonderful and sweet and funny, but we'll be honest - he needs a very specific fospice home. If you're interested in welcoming Rumple into your home, please read his following needs carefully: His home should be: ❀️ Cat free ❀️ Either no other dogs or larger, calm dogs (no small dogs please) ❀️ Elevator building, ground-floor apartment or house (no stairs) ❀️ Located in the Tri-State area, within 2 hours of NYC ❀️ Compassionate; willing to live with a mobility-challenged old dog who is mostly housetrained but may have some accidents inside ❀️ Doesn't mind some occasional toots Doesn't he sound like a dream? If your home meets these requirements and you think Rumple is your jam, please email Animal Haven directly at dogsandcats@ah-nyc.org! . . . #animalhaven #rumple #pleasehelp #fospice #foster #seniordog #seniordogs #dontbullymybreed #adorabull #lovabull #staffy #staffordshireterrier #seniorpittie #rescuedismyfavoritebreed

Say 'bonjour' to Monsieur! πŸ‡«πŸ‡·This dapper 3-year-old boy was surrendered to Animal Haven yesterday and he's settling in nicely.

New arrival! Our friends at @ahsnewark have been jam packed with animals recently, so we visited their shelter and brought five dogs back to Animal Haven. Introducing the first of the pack: Howie! This 1-year-old guy is energetic, smart and handsome to boot. Howie seems to enjoy the company of some other small dogs, and we think he'd be great at agility. He's the perfect pup for someone looking for an active outdoor buddy who can snuggle up at the end of the night. Adopt Howie! P.S. - we'll introduce you to the other newbies soon! . . . #animalhaven #terrier #terriermix #socute #cutiepatootie #howie #adoptme #adoption #rescue #shelterdog #rescuedog

Meet Frances! This precious girl was rescued from a massive hoarding situation in Mississippi where she was housed with 250 other dogs. πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’” As you can imagine, these pups will need a lot of love and attention. Frances seems a bit more outgoing than some of her former housemates but is still shy around people. Therefore, she is looking for a very patient, quiet and loving home that understands it'll take some time before she's ready to be a lapdog. Come by and meet her at 200 Centre Street in NYC Tuesday-Sunday between 12 and 6pm. #animalhaven #chihuahua #hoardingdogs #adopt #rescuedog #rescue #chihuahuas #chihuahuasofinstagram #hoarding #adoption

Rasputin, AKA "Raspy," is at Animal Haven waiting for you. He just arrived this week after his person had a baby and Raspy wasn't thrilled about it. Since he's new, we're still getting to know him but so far, so cute! Raspy is about 8 years old but he struts his stuff on walks like a young man. Obviously from this pic you can see that he's a total ham, and yes, he definitely 'cheesed' for his headshot! ? We open back up to the public at 12pm tomorrow, so come in and meet Rasputin! . . . #animalhaven #adoptme #adoptdontshop #adoptable #yorkie #yorkies #yorkshireterrier #yorkiesofinstagram #yorkiegram #animalrescue #yorkielove #adoption

Happy Independence Day, America! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Many of us are prepping our grills, inflating the pool floaties and getting ready to watch fireworks. But July 4th is one of the busiest days of the year at animal shelters because of escaped dogs and cats. Here are four important tips on how to keep your pets safe this holiday: 1. Fireworks can be scary for animals! 😳 While many humans love to watch this beautiful display, fireworks can be terrifying for dogs and cats. Utilize white noise like fans and air conditioners to drown out the noise. Keep dogs busy and distracted with high-value chews or toys such as a Kong stuffed with peanut butter. 2. Make sure your pet has ID. πŸ†” It's important for pets to be microchipped, and we recommend a collar with tags that contain your contact information. This way, if your pet does manage to escape, they can be easily reunited with you. 3. Secure doors and windows. πŸ”’ Sometimes loud noises (such as fireworks) can spook animals and cause them to flee, so make sure all of your doors and gates are firmly closed, and windows are secured. 4. Watch that thermometer. 🌑️ While it's fun to have Fido at your barbecue, the summer heat can be sweltering! Make sure your pup has plenty of water, shade and indoor breaks when needed. Pets can be susceptible to heat stroke, so it's important to keep them cool during your festivities all summer long! And if you're looking to add a dog to your family, Sasha (pictured above) is still looking for her home at Animal Haven! Click the link in our bio and head to "Adopt"! Happy celebrating, friends!

Totopo loves to hike! And just to prove how smart our boy is, when the temperature rises, he hits the water too. Adding yet another reason to adopt him -- he's a hiking and swimming partner all in one! We are so happy that our staff and volunteers take our dogs on these outdoor outings about an hour north of the big city. It's always fun and helps our big guys get out of the shelter and really stretch out. It just makes us smile. πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€— Please come down to meet Totopo Tuesday-Sunday between 12 and 6pm at 200 Centre Street in NYC. Also a reminder that he'd do best in a home with no cats and only certain dogs. #animalhaven #hike #adopt #hikingwithdogs #hiker #hikingadventures #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram #swimmingwithdogs #adoption #newyorklife #pittienation #pittiemixesofinstagram

Jamai is making HUGE progress in his socialization journey! After being rescued from the dog meat trade in Thailand, Jamai was understandably very scared of humans, unsocialized and unsure about our intentions. He would cower and shake in his crate, anxiously panting and getting as far away from us as possible. But after months of slow, reward-based training Jamai is not only interacting with humans, but he's going on walks outside! This is a massive 180Β° turn from the timid dog who arrived months ago, completely shut down. He loves hanging out with other dogs and would enjoy a home with another canine pal (a bonus, but not required). Jamai is available for adoption, and though he's made huge strides, he'll still do best in a home with a patient person or family who is willing to go slow and continue reminding him that humans are good, and the world can be a wonderful, un-scary place. Making sure Jamai feels safe is the #1 priority. Adopt Jamai! . . . #animalhaven #illegalmeattrade #rescue #saved #training #adoptme #soi #adoptabledog #animalrescue #ridgeback #dogsofshelters #rescuedogsofinstagram #nyc

Fossy needs you! A few weeks ago we posted a group of extremely scared chihuahuas who had been rescued from a very large hoarding situation and brought to Animal Haven. Our staff has been working with them to come out of their shells. The process has been slow though. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ Fossy is one of them. Like her, they all need patience, time and love. Therefore, we are looking for adopters who are interested in opening their quiet homes to any of these tiny, precious dogs. The little bit of improvement we are seeing illustrates that they all have the potential to trust. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ We just need a little help from all of you to make it happen! Please come to 200 Centre Street in NYC Tuesday-Friday between 12-6pm to meet them.

Noelle is still looking for her big break. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ This gentle dog came to us after a friend of Animal Haven's witnessed her being kicked by her then person. πŸ’”πŸ’” Without hesitation, our Good Samaritan stepped in and, surprisingly, the abuser handed her Noelle's leash and told her to just take her. This was an amazing day for our girl and now she's at Animal Haven surrounded by a loving staff and volunteers. It has been a slow process to get her to a place of trust but she is on her way. We are looking for an adult-only, single-animal home who has the time, patience and resources to continue the work we have already started. We will help her new family in any way possible to make sure she receives her happy ending. Please come down to meet her at 200 Centre Street in NYC Tuesday-Fridays between 12 and 6pm. You can also DONATE now to her care via Venmo @animalhaven.

FOUND DOG! Please help us find this sweet boy's family. He was found on the UWS around 6pm this evening.

HOARDING RESCUE UPDATE! A few weeks ago, we took in seven chihuahuas that had been rescued from a hoarding situation in Mississippi, from a property where more than 250 dogs were roaming free. The dogs are highly traumatized and most are completely terrified of humans. Frances, pictures here, is one of the most "outgoing" of the group, and has allowed some gentle touch. She's beginning to walk on leash outside, and is helping some of the more scared dogs with feel protected and comfortable. Our internal training team is working daily on the slow, painstaking process of socialization, and teeny tiny progress is being made! If you're a patient person who is willing to give Frances a chance, we invite you to come meet her at Animal Haven! She's still coming out of her shell, but she is as sweet as pie and you're sure to fall in love. . . . #animalhaven #hoarders #chihuahuamix #chihuahuasofinstagram #rescue #socialization #chihuahuagram #fearfuldog #dogtraining #nyc #frances

KIRK UPDATE! Back in May we told you about Kirk, a tiny terrier who arrived neglected, abused and severely matted, with a deep strangulation wound on his front left leg. We feared he'd need the leg amputated, but he's made a miraculous recovery! After a month of medical treatment and rest, his leg is mostly healed and he's putting weight on it when he walks! πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘ Kirk is an excitable, happy-go-lucky guy who loves people. He'd prefer to be the only pet, but gosh, he sure does love humans. Adopt Kirk! . . . #animalhaven #maltese #maltesemix #poodle #poodlemix #tongueouttuesday #tot #recovery #doggo #rescue #newyorkcity

If we had to choose one classification for Dewey Decimal, it would probably be the 100's - Philosophy.

Is it just us, or does Yoyo seem like he's in on the joke?! This senior sensation is still looking for a home, but in the meantime, he's become close with some of our staff. As the self-appointed head of the Welcome Committee, Yoyo jumps with glee when we arrive, then runs to your feet and comes in for a cuddle. Honestly, if you're having a bad day, Yoyo's sweet greeting makes you forget about it. Since he's deaf, Yoyo prefers love on his terms. Yoyo loves affection, as long as he's the one to initiate it. This little lion would make an awesome addition to a relaxed, low-key, all-adult household. Adopt Yoyo!

Nudge nudge, wink wink: just a reminder that Ben is still looking for a home! If you're looking for a super-playful pup with a happy-go-lucky personality, Ben is your guy. He's a true "toy hound" and loves nothing more than bouncing around a room, throwing his toys in the air and reminding us that joy is contagious. Ben is the perfect size - a medium-sized "pocket pittie" for a NYC apartment, and he loves to get active and explore around the city. That said, he'll also be content with a house in the 'burbs or some digs near a hiking trail. Want to wake up to this smile every day?

We love a good 'survivor' story, so we'd like to introduce Pisces! At only weeks old, Pisces and her three littermates tested positive for a potentially deadly virus called feline panleukopenia, which is the leading cause of death in cats. Highly contagious, cats with this infection typically have a very poor prognosis and we feared that she and her littermates wouldn't survive. But after weeks of intensive treatment and care by our medical team, we have GREAT NEWS: all four kittens survived and they are healthy!! πŸ’ž Now three months old, Pisces and her siblings (Aries, Libra and Capricorn) are ready to find love. Come meet these adoptable kitties at Animal Haven!

Have you ever seen a more beautiful face? Erin just arrived at Animal Haven from Miami, where she had landed in a shelter with series injuries, most likely the result of a car accident. Her physical injuries have healed, and now Erin's heart is learning to heal. Erin is a total mush and bonds to people quickly. Because of this, she becomes anxious when left alone. Our amazing friend @mrsyobe has helped Erin work with a veterinary behaviorist and she's making progress. But we're looking for a home for sweet Erin where her new family will continue working with her to ensure her progress continues. She is 40 pounds of pure love, and her her person or people will be lucky to call her theirs! Stop by Animal Haven to meet Erin - you will fall in love! #animalhaven

Meet Margie! This precious little senior beagle came to us from a local shelter just last week. Our poor girl looks like she could have been abused -- definitely neglected. πŸ’”πŸ’” She is covered in scars and has a slight limp. But don't let any of this deter you! She is seriously the sweetest dog in town. πŸ˜‰ And because of that, she'd probably do best in a quiet home full of love so she can relax during her retirement years. Who can blame her? And even better, she doesn't seem to be bothered by cats or dogs. In fact, she is currently rooming with another pup at the shelter and all is going well. They just went on a walk together around the block. Adorable! To meet Margie, please visit us at 200 Centre Street in NYC Tuesday-Sunday between 12 and 6pm.

Looking for some #GoodNewsTues? Meet 7-month-old ManΓ­! He arrived a few weeks ago from Costa Rica, by way of our friends at @rivierarescue in Mexico. His rescuer saved him at around 2 months old (OMG swipe for his baby pics!!) and he's been looking for an adoptive family ever since. ManΓ­ was born with front legs that aren't fully developed. Despite his physical differences, ManΓ­ has learned to scoot around really well, and even sits up on his hind legs when he begs for treats or attention! He is extremely social with both dogs and people, and LOVES to play. We're currently exploring the best prosthetic option for ManΓ­ to improve his mobility and comfort. We can't wait to see this happy boy on four legs! . . . #animalhaven #differentlyabled #germanshepherd #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #specialneeds #puppiesofig #animalrescue #doglove Adorable baby photos courtesy @mar_cw!

πŸ’•Special Kitties Alert!πŸ’• Bolognese, a 6-month-old kitten, has spent most of her life at Animal Haven with her sister Pesto. After arriving at our shelter, we quickly found out they were FeLV positive, meaning they live with an infection called Feline Leukemia Virus. We won't sugar coat it - FeLV is incurable, and most cats don't live more than a few years after they're diagnosed. But Bolognese and Pesto deserve a warm, loving home for whatever time they have left in this life. They are happy, bouncy kittens (albeit a wee bit shy), and they love to play with feather toys, yarn balls and most of all - each other! We're looking for a fospice home for Bolognese and Pesto where they can live out their days with love. Because FeLV is contagious to other cats, they'll need to be the only felines in your home (but it's not contagious to dogs, other animals or people!). If you're interested in welcoming Bolognese and Pesto into your home, please email us at dogsandcats@ah-nyc.org! . . . #animalhaven #bondedpair #kittens #felv #fospice #hospicefoster #specialneedscats #kittensofinstagram #kittenlovers

Meet Lotus! She's a 7-month-old terrier mix rescued from an illegal Asian dog meat farm at only 3 WEEKS OLD (swipe for pic), and she arrived at Animal Haven this week. Luckily, when Lotus was saved, her rescuers were able to shut down the meat farm completely! She's safely at Animal Haven now and ready for her new life. Happy and energetic, Lotus loves to buzz around the room using her nose to gather information. Though a bit shy at first, she warms up quickly and walks really well on a leash.

CHEF NEEDS YOUR HELP! When 3-month-old Chef arrived at Animal Haven, we didn't think she'd make it through the night. She had an upper respiratory infection so bad that one of her tiny eyes had ruptured, and on top of that, she was severely hypothermic, shaking, and anemic from a flea infestation. This tiny girl was in horrific shape. We rushed her to the vet, where we feared we might have to say goodbye. But we knew we had to give her a chance. With some compassionate overnight care, medicine and fluids, Chef began to perk up. Her body temperature warmed and she began breathing regularly. Chef is now back at Animal Haven, where she's receiving lots of love, frequent hand feedings and subcutaneous fluids to ensure she stays hydrated. Once she's healthy enough, her right eye will need to be surgically removed, but we're hopeful she'll be able to live a long, happy life in a loving home. Chef isn't quite out of the woods yet, but with your help, we can continue giving Chef the fighting chance she deserves. Click the link in our bio to donate, or find us on Venmo @animalhaven. πŸ’œ

Meet John! He's a shy but sweet 1-year-old Belgian Malinois mix who arrived last week, and he's looking for a special person or family to give him a chance at a new life. The first year of John's life has been pretty tough. John was rescued from a puppy mill in Pennsylvania, and the "breeders" gave him up because he wasn't able to successfully mate. Though he's undersocialized, John is eager for positive attention from people (as long as we agree to go at his pace and comfort level). πŸ’•He's got lots of energy and would love an active home. Come meet John at Animal Haven! . . . #animalhaven #rescued #puppymillsurvivor #belgianmalinois #banpuppymills #shepherd #thegoodestboy #adoption #rescuedismyfavoritebreed

What better way to start #Caturday off than with beautiful Sionna! She is a shy, 1 year old girl that was dropped off at @nycacc when her previous family could no longer care for her. It was understandably a very stressful transition at first, but Sionna seems to have settled and enjoys head scritches on her terms. If you're looking for a beauty with a little bit of #catitude, stop by Animal Haven to meet Sionna! . . . #animalhaven #adoption #adoptme #sealpoint #rescuecat #catslife #catsofig

This week, we received seven small dogs via one of our rescue partners, and they are some of the most terrified and shut down dogs we've ever encountered. These dogs were rescued from a hoarding situation in Mississippi where they had been living on a rural property with around 250 other chihuahua mixes. Yes, you read that right: 250 dogs freely roaming, with little to no human interaction. Several amazing rescue organizations have helped along the way, and these seven have now made their way to Animal Haven, where we're beginning to socialize them and teach them how to trust humans. Right now, though, they are so terrified and shut down that several of them try to climb the walls when we enter their cabin to deliver food. But they are safe now.πŸ’œOur staff has already begun the long, slow process of helping them learn that people can be good. We'll be sure to keep you posted on their progress. . . . #animalhaven #hoarder #chihuahuamix #chihuahuasofinstagram #rescue #socialization #chihuahuagram #fearfuldog #dogtraining #nyc

‼️RUMPLE NEEDS YOUR HELP‼️We're looking for a hospice foster for our boy Rumple, and we're hoping you can help spread the word and help us find a compassionate, caring person. Rumple has been in the shelter system for 781 days, and that is simply too long. At 12 years old, his mobility is declining significantly and he's experiencing some health complications that come with age. His body is aging, but he is mentally quite youthful and excitable (Rumple *loves* snacks!). Though we make every effort to ensure he is comfortable and happy at our shelter, it's just not an ideal situation for Rumple. So we're putting the call out: Do you or someone you know want to take Rumple into your home? The main requirement is a home that can be accessed without stairs, and we'll provide everything else he needs. In his advanced age, he has actually taken to liking many other dogs, so he no longer needs to be the only dog in the home! We love this boy so much, and we know you do, too. He deserves to be curled up in a home, on a comfy bed, not in a shelter cabin. We don't know how much longer he has on this earth, but we're committed to making sure it's in a loving fospice home. Will you help Rumple? Email us at dogsandcats@ah-nyc.org. πŸ’œ . . . #animalhaven #rumple #pleasehelp #fospice #foster #seniordog #seniordogs #dontbullymybreed #fostering
