Meet Cola. This beautiful brindle boy is as sweet and bubbly as his name implies. Cola loves to play fetch. It’s his favorite thing to do in the entire universe. If he can’t play fetch, he’ll challenge himself to pick up as many tennis balls as he can. We’ve seen him fit 3 in his mouth at once! Cola is smart as a whip and has learned how to sit and wait patiently until his volunteer friend throws his ball. He’s also fast as the wind. He’s back and drops it at your feet before you know it. After a good game, Cola loves to lie down next to his volunteer and chill. He’s a world class snuggler. Shelter life is hard for an active boy like Cola. He gets out for about 15 minutes a day when he’s lucky. The rest of his time is spent in his run where he waits for his next brief chance of freedom. Cola would thrive in an environment with an active family or person. A fenced in yard would be perfect, so he can get his daily exercise. Kids 12 and up as his size and athleticism would not be ideal around younger children. At this time, we’ve labeled Cola as an only pet, but that could change once he’s out of the stressful shelter environment. Cola is about 1 ½ years old and 65 pounds.please contact our adoption coordinator, at 201- 981-3215 or email her at Lesliem147@gmail.com or come visit us at the shelter.

Please contact Leslie, our volunteer adoption Taffy is a young,40 lb, mixed bully breed dog About 2.5 years old. ..She's a puppy herself,but it appears that's she has already had a litter of her own..so sad....that was when she came in 18 months ago. She was brought to the shelter after someone apparently moved and left poor Taffy behind .. When she first arrived,she was afraid of everything..dogs,people and loud noises, but after just a little while ,she settled in nicely and warmed up to everyone ...Taffy likes walks,but seems to prefer sitting on the bench next to you and just taking in the action going on around her....Her favorite food seems to be chicken. Taffy has a very good appetite and that makes us happy because she definitely needs to put on a few pounds.. At this time,we believe she should be the only dog in the home,however,she will be tested again because it may well be the stress of being at the shelter.. You can visit Taffy at the Yonkers Shelter 7 days a week from 11 to 4 It's now almost a year later,so poor Taffy is now 2.5 years old and still here and still no home.

Jay-Z is in the house! This handsome blue nosed boy wound up at the shelter when his owner was incarcerated. For the first couple of weeks, he was scared and confused and barked at everyone who came near his run. With time and patience, Jay came around and is now a staff and volunteer favorite. He’s about 18 months old, medium sized, and appropriate around other dogs. Jay is smart as a whip – knows sit, down, high five with both paws. He loves to play fetch with tennis balls and drops them nicely for you to throw again. After a short time in the yard, Jay loves to come inside and snuggle with his volunteer. He’s so affectionate and a delight to be around. Jay-Z likes most other dogs, but would probably do best with one of medium energy like himself and would, of course, need a meet n greet first. He’d be great in an apartment or home, as he’s not high energy. Kids 10 and up, as he might knock little ones down with his wagging tail. Come meet this handsome land shark at Yonkers Animal Shelter. He’s ready to go home.coordinator, at 201- 981-3215 or email her at Lesliem147@gmail.com or come visit us at the shelter. All pets are spayed/neutered before leaving shelter

Louie, Louie we surely love you ! We are still trying to figure out why such a nice dog wound up at Yonkers Animal Shelter.more than one year ago. . Louie showed up as a stray one day,wagging his tail and smiling at everyone he met...We were pretty sure his owner was on his way since Louie was neutered, well fed, had a healthy looking coat, appeared to be house trained and was very comfortable around people...all the signs of a family dog...Guess we will never know what Louie's past was since no on came forward, but we know his future will be bright...What more could you want in a loyal companion ? His amazing ears don't hurt either ! Is he not one of the cutest dogs ever ! At 3.5 to 4 yrs old, Louis is about 60 lbs...He is dominant,but dog friendly...He loves to play, with or without a human partner...He's very athletic and would make a great agility dog if someone gave him a chance.. He needs a home,not a kennel...lesliem147@gmail.com or 201-981-3215 if you can help Please contact Leslie, our volunteer adoption coordinator, at 201- 981-3215 or email her at Lesliem147@gmail.com or come visit us at the shelter.

Please contact Leslie, our volunteer adoption Meet Momma, a girl who needs a special home...We've known Momma a long time....She originally showed up at the old shelter ,very pregnant with nowhere to go...A local Animal Hospital, not only took her in and let her have her puppies; they found homes for each and everyone of them and a good home for Momma as well...She had the perfect life..Just her and an older gentleman...just what she needed.....and then her person died...none of his family had room for poor Momma and she eventually wound up back at the shelter where her journey started years ago...Now, Momma is seven years old,though she doesn't look it ! She's a dog who wants her person all to herself ,so no other pets for her...An older person is just perfect...Momma likes to fetch a ball or two and then she's content to lie at your feet...She might need to meet you twice as she can be shy with strangers...She's very comfortable here and likes everyone,but to be sure we are saying that's a fair possibility....Momma is a big girl,maybe 60 lbs...Please don't let her spend the rest of her days without a home to call her own....She's more than paid her dues.

Look who is ready for his home...Max!!!!!!! This handsome lab/pit mix is about 7 years old . He is super mellow and weighs approximately 65 pounds. Max would be good with a mellow, submissive dog his size- male or female - no cats or small dogs for him. Max would be fine around respectful children ages 10 and up. Max has been socialized around lots of people and loves everyone he meets. He loves strolling around downtown Peekskill showing off his impeccable leash manners.

Venus is between three and five years old and 40 lbs. she's a Boxer pit mix who tested as cat friendly,however, we always cat test several times before adopting a dog to a home with cats,because at the shelter the cats are in a controlled environment......Venus is dog selective. .She loves people and stuffed animals that are " her babies".She seems house trained but she was a stray dog so we can't say that with certainty ...Venus Is very smart and bored at the shelter....she needs a home with a family or person who will give her proper exercise and plenty of love. Children must be over 15 as Venus is very toy motivated and although she has learned to drop her toys ,she might not want to share with a child,or she may want their toys .Please contact Leslie, our volunteer adoption coordinator, at 201- 981-3215 or email her at Lesliem147@gmail.com or come visit us at the shelter.
