My fiancé and I adopted Raisin from the New Rochelle Humane Society a few months ago. She became a member of our family very quickly. She is extremely affectionate, playful and sweet. She loves to look out the window, sleep and play with our other cat Nerval. I’ve attached a picture of her relaxing on our love seat. – Erin
My husband and I adopted our lil’ Shayna at 13 weeks old, three years ago from you. We just wanted to send a little update and a pic to show you how beautiful she has turned out. She is spoiled rotten and has filled our hearts with so much love. We’ve been checking your site periodically to see if we could find her a friend.
This has been a long time coming. We adopted these guys in October 2010. They were named Jerry and Kramer at the time; they’re now Lex (short hair) and Zod (long hair). They quickly became comfortable and took over our house. Lex is the spunky one, always seeking attention, even though he gets CONSTANT loving. Zod is sweet and sometimes a little skittish. They’re both healthy and happy. Thanks for the wonderful additions to our family.
Hello, everyone, I wanted to let you know that Sylvia is doing really well. She is truly a wonderful kittie. She has transitioned so nicely in our home and we couldn’t be happier with her. And, she gets along with our other kittie, Savana who is 12 years old.
You may recall, I lost two of my kitties in December (3 weeks apart) and I miss them terribly however, Sylvia has brought such joy and relief to the sadness! She’s incredibly friendly, social (my neighbors love her!) because she’ll come out and greet them and hang out like she part of the conversation And, she’s very loving — loves to cuddle and sleep with us all night.
Attached are some pics of her relaxing (she also watches TV) when she’s not chasing her toys. She’s our new sweet pea and we wanted to let you know. – Robin
We adopted Bean on March 2, 2013, and she weighed in at 27 pounds. She had some mange but is all better now. Today she is 36 pounds, happy and silly and loves to give kisses. She is very spoiled and loves to go on walks and play with her daddy. She has a great yard to run around in. She is always smiling. She does get the itchies becasue she does have allergies but she has a vet that adores her and she is just perfect. She is 100% house trained and can do some tricks. She is the best addition to my family and we could not have asked for a better dog. The picture attached was from 4/28/13 after she was done playing in the yard! – Ginette and Steve
Hello. Attached is a picture of the two kittens I adopted from your shelter in December 2012. They are now six months old and were just spayed. Here they are in the “kitty” room being nice and quiet for a few days. They love this room. This is where they hung out when I first brought them home and for a while after. They still sleep in that room every night. It’s their safe place.
Cocoa Puff is the calico. Her original name was Hazel at the shelter. Daphne is the black one. Her original name was Foofie. The are now 6 lbs. each and growing rapidly. They love to play with each other and their adopted sister (10-year-old tuxedo) and brother (20-year-old Angora). Thank you so much for them!!! We love them dearly!!! – Susan
Hello! We adopted Leia from the New Rochelle Humane Society on February 2, 2013. We’ve been having so much fun since we brought her home! I’ve been meaning to send pictures for weeks now and I’m finally getting around to it. Craig and I are so thankful to have Leia in our lives now. We love her and are so happy we found her! – Hannah
Last Monday I visited your facility and met a wonderful little pup Shadow. I fell in love with him instantly and had the rest of my family come the next day. Shadow came home with us that day. He has been awesome and we all love having him around. Attached is a picture of Shadow looking very proud of his new back yard! – Douglas
Good evening New Rochelle Humane Society. I adopted Keilani, one of the “beach” kittens on 6-10-12 and renamed her Lyla Reese. She is named after one of my favorite characters on Friday Night Lights and my sister’s favorite chocolate. She is an absolute joy and I couldn’t ask for a more loving kitten. I haven’t had a kitten in 7 years, so I forgot how much energy they have. This photo of her in my dish holder, I cannot explain. Believe me when I tell you I do have more comfortable furniture in my apartment! I just love her to pieces and would adopt 10 more if I could. She is an absolute joy!
I would also like to commend her “foster family.” She is so social and curious about everything. I still can’t get over how much she loves water. She will stand in my bathroom sink and let the water run down her head onto her paw to lick. I leave the water running 24 hours a day. Also dinner is a tad stressful … she wants to see what I am making and then wants to taste what I cooked. Please be assured when it’s time to get another cat, I will be back to the New Rochelle Humane Society. It’s been a wonderful experience with Lyla! – Anne
Does everyone remember the litter of “Casino” puppies in 2012? Here is a picture of Maeve who was originally called Domino celebrating her first birthday with a trip to the river. She is the sweetest dog ever and loves to cuddle and play. We LOVE her!! – Maureen
It’s been a little over a month since our new adult cat, “Walter,” arrived home. In this short time, he’s brought companionship, energy, and a wonderful quirkiness to both the resident cat and our human family. Walter is equally ready for a game of chase as much as he is ready for a good cuddle. We are grateful for the wonderful new addition to our pride. Thanks from all of us for rescuing him from his prior life in an abandoned apartment!
Samson Meets his Delilah: Here are some photos of the “King and Queen of the Prom”, as my Veterinarian refers to them as. I’m having the best time with them. They’re very entertaining and I love them! — Vicki
Teena has now been with us for almost five months, and it’s hard for us to remember a time when she was not a part of our family. While dinner is being prepared she plops down right smack in the middle of the kitchen, so we repeatedly have to step over her. During dinner she is not allowed in the dining room, so she lies down in the doorway, with just her paws on the wood floor, keeping an eye out for any crumbs that drop so she can get them after we’re done. We have gotten to the point where we can let her walk off the leash on our cul de sac, but we still keep her leashed on the more well-traveled roads in the neighborhood. Her patience for being dressed up or forced to wear hats is remarkable, as the pictures show. There’s even one in which she is wearing gloves on her forepaws. On non-school nights we sometimes let the kids sleep on the floor of the living room, and those are the only nights when she doesn’t sleep at the foot of our bed, opting instead to keep a close eye on the kids.
As I was scratching her belly this morning reflecting on how lucky we are to have her, I could not imagine a scenario where her previous family had to give her up. What a heart breaking experience that must have been. Once again, we can’t thank you enough to giving her a safe and warm place to stay while she waited for us to find her. I hope this note finds you and your staff doing well, enjoying the new year, and looking forward to many more successful adoptions as you continue to make miracles happen for God’s creatures. — Ken
As our fourth anniversary approaches (fourth month, that is) we are thanking our lucky stars for the bundle of joy that is Snickers. Mr. Biggs, as he’s occasionally known, was Manolo upon his surrender to the Society. He starred at the family Thanksgiving gathering and was a hit again on New Years (he’s the celebrant in black bow tie in the attached photo.) Our lives have been enriched beyond expectation: morning constitutionals; meeting neighbors (for the first time); discovering previously unknown parks and runs; finding intermittent success at click-training; snuggling (lots). Thanks for caring for him until we were able to step in! — Gregg & Diane
Here is a picture of the kitten, Bobby, that we adopted. We started out as foster parents with the goal of socializing him, since he was a feral kittie. Well, the timing coincided with Christmas vacation and everyone was home. We had tons of time to spend petting, cuddling, and playing with Bobby and did this every spare minute. When the time came to give him back to the shelter, we were all in love with this special little guy who had formed such a strong bond with us. We had to adopt him! He is doing great. He is sweet and gentle. It has been such a joy watching him go from scared little kitten to one that is confident, bold, and playful. Here he is living like a king and sleeping in the master bedroom. — Kim, Anna, & Chloe
We’re sending you an update on our new little angel, formerly known as “Baby J.” Since we’ve adopted him, he has been renamed Gino and is doing very well in our home! He is even getting along with his new feline brother, Murphy. He wishes all his friends at the New Rochelle Humane Society a Happy New Year! Thanks so much for our little baby, he’s the best!
Here is my sweet Spike. She turned out to be awesome. — Marilyn
