    The racoon mother retrieved 4 of her babies, but 2 were left. They responded quickly the next day and contacted a rescue group who came immediately and retrieved the final 2 babies. Everyone was extremely pleasant to work with. We were very satisfied.

    We are very happy with the service and care that they provide. They provide low cost veterinary care and boarding. They have a great new facility.

    We would highly recommend them. They are very thorough and caring. They are mostly volunteers and if they don’t have an answer, they would make sure and find the answer. They are willing to help.

    My family decided we wanted to adopt a dog. We were thinking we would like a border collie. So we started searching on the computer. We came across a border collie at Little Shelter. We called to see if the dog was available for adoption. They told us she was so the next day we took a ride to see her. When we arrived at the shelter we were sorry to hear that another family was interested in adopting the little border collie. The staff at the shelter encouraged us to take a look around, and maybe we would see another dog that we'd like to adopt. One of the girl's that worked there showed us a litter of puppies that were only 6 weeks old. Make a long story short we ended up taking one of the puppies home with us. That was 14 years ago! Going to the shelter that day was the best thing we ever did. That was the day Jade, the name she was given by the shelter, came into our lives, and the day Maggie became a member of this family. After 14 years of being a loyal friend and companion Maggie has passed. We love her and we miss her. If we ever decide to adopt another puppy you can sure Little Shelter will be the first place we go. The people at Little Shelter were very kind and helpful. They went out of their way to help us and make sure we were happy with our selection. Over the years we'Ve told many people about Little Shelter and recommend them highly.

    They are very thorough and offer a very good service. I have also had friends adopt pets from Jersery Shore Animal Center. I really like that they do background checks and make sure that the individuals adopting the animals are taking their pets to veterinarian visits regularly.

    After my last dog died, I wasn't sure if I wanted to get another one or not. While the reward of animal ownership is great, so is the commitment, and I was drained since my last pet had been in declining health for a long time. When I finally made up my mind that it was time to go for it, I also decided that instead of a pet store or breeder, it was also time to give a shelter or rescue organization a fair try. There are many choices in my area, and I must have visited over two dozen shelters to get an idea about the adoption process and what was available. I found out that most shelters have a foster program which was great for me because I wasn't sure if I could adjust my schedule to do this full-time, and I also wasn't sure if I could accommodate a larger breed than I was used to. After a couple of tries, I found out that smaller was better for me, and most of the shelter dogs available were medium-to-large and bigger. It seems that smaller dogs are adopted more quickly, and town shelters have waiting lists and multiple applications for their smaller breeds. Going back to North Shore, they were the cleanest, most well-staffed shelter of all I had visited, but they had a first-come, first-served policy which I found out about when I wanted to go home and think about a certain dog who was adopted while I made my decision. I understand how it works, and it 's a fair policy, but after missing out a few times, I became a frequent visitor to the shelter. I saw that the staff took the time to match the right people to the right dog, and potential adopters are made to jump through hoops with personal references, and possible surprise home visits, which, as an animal lover, isn't unreasonable. Since they publicize a constant influx of dogs from puppy mills as well as rescues from natural disasters, adoptions were extremely brisk when mine came up from the floods of Tennessee. It had to be the right dog at the right time, and finally, it was.

    This dog is the greatest dog ever. There are so many wonderful animals at this shelter. The animals have been through so much and they need TLC because they have been through a lot. But once they have adjusted, they can blossom into wonderful pets. When you adopt from here, you are taking a pet off of death row. They also have a bank in Brooklyn and Staten Island for the same shelter.

    Beagle Freedom Project
    Some of the beagles have been rescued from testing labs. They need a lot of love and patience, which is gladly given. They have just come out of years of being in cages and not seeing the sunlight. I think that Shannon, the founder, is the most wonderful person in the world for rescuing these dogs. We should have more people in the world like her who manage to get several dogs from animal testing labs. Animal Rescue Media Education Corp is the mission company they are also associated with.  She works through negotiation and legality. Recently, the Beagle Freedom Bill has been passed in CA and Minnesota.  It states that when the laboratories are "finished"  with the beagles and now other testing animals, they will not be put to death, but given the chance to live, be fostered and adopted, by Law!  There are many people wanting these animals all over the country, Yeah!  Yes, Shannon is a Hero among all she comes in contact with through the Animal Rescue Media Education Beagle Freedom Project!!

    New Rochelle Animal Hospital is a no kill shelter. They gave me a list of free spaying. I love them. Their facility is clean and the animals are well taken care off much better than at other shelters. They were good. Cleanliness stands out. I can't stand when you go to shelters and they small and are not clean. All the animals are clean and well cared for. It is almost like a home environment for the animals. They have volunteers who pick up the animals. It is what to me a shelter should be. Their price is fair for what they do. I don't have any complaints. I had no problems with them. I would go back if I needed to adopt and I would recommend people to go there.

    One cat the female CeCe is not a wallflower anymore.  At first, she would  always hide under the bed.  And I coaxed her out with my voice, brushing her gently and petting her.  She had to jump on the bed for me to do this, which she did occasionally and when she did, she loved the attention!  She is now quite comfortable and owns this one bedroom apartment. A real, Queen of Sheba.  I am looking around the apartment living room and I just know she's watching, "Window TV." Window TV is when she sits on the window sill and looks outside, and sees all kinds of critters(birds, chipmunks and the such) windy leaves, things that move and rays of sun to bask in :-) However, she also sleeps in many positions and right now, she is not watching Window TV, but curled up in a ball sleeping on the top of our love seat.  Guess who else is there, on the cushions? Smith, our male feral cat that we received from Ann at Sound Earth.  He can get quite feisty, but now there's no story to tell but that Smith is asleep! Thank you Ann for our two new family members. My husband and I are just bedazzled by them. They are like calm babies now, just ate, but do the things cats do like knocking things over, playing and Meowing for their meals!! They are beautiful grey and brown tiger cats which Ann brought over herself to inspect the surroundings.  Everything was to her and our liking.  We have 2 new family members, thank you Sound Earth!
