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.

Take a look at Lila, a sweet, young dog who has spent half her life here at Yonkers Animal Shelter...and why would that be ? There's only one reason...she wants to be your only pet..for a single pet household, you won't find a better choice than Lila....she's quiet and calm and has the best kennel manners...once in the yard,you don't even know she is there unless you happen to be sharing the bench with her..Lila is exceptionally athletic and would make an excellent agility dog..she's petite, at most 45 lbs and under two years old...it's almost as if no one knows she is here and waiting..would you say Good Sunday Morning to her so FB shares her and she gets more much needed media exposure ? We know there is a family out there..They just haven't found her yet ?201-981-3215 or lesliem147@gmail.com for any inquiriesPlease 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 Taffy is a young,40 lb, mixed bully breed dog between 10-12 months old...She's a puppy herself,but it appears that's she has already had a litter of her own..so sad....She was brought to the shelter a couple of weeks ago 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 couple of weeks,she has settled in nicely and is warming 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 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
