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.

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.

Venus is between two and three 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 12 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.

Tyson is 3.5 to 4 years old and about 60 lbs. he was surrendered by a family who rescued him from a neglectful situation but they didn't introduce him to their male dog first and apparently, he was not happy to have a new brother...they did take good care of Tyson. He was clean and well fed and has a great temperament...he's a lovely dog, very affectionate and people friendly...likes to run and play ball. Appears to be housetrained but that's not definite...He has a beautiful face and the cutest ears as you can see..lol Tyson does not like to share his toys,so children should be over 12 ...we believe that he probably never had toys before...He will trade a toy for a treat with no problem,but that's not something a younger child should be involved in ... He walks nicely on leash and knows some basic commands. Here is what one of the volunteers had to say. " Tyson is such a good dog. I walk him every weekend and he knows the routine and that he only gets a few minutes in the playpen because "we have to give the other dogs a chance" since there's only 2 play pens, so as soon as I let him loose, he runs and runs and runs to get everything out of his system. I used to have to call him to come in (he does come when you call) but now he automatically runs to the gate door after his 10 minutes of running because he knows his time is up. When he first came in to the shelter, he didn't want to go back in his cage and would be so quick to slip out the cage door as soon as you put him in, but now he automaticallt goes in and stays in. He makes it so easy for me !! Tyson is affectionate and loves being pet. He also seems to be housetrained because he lets out a long pee the minute we walk out the door. Please consider Tyson. He is very cheerful and always smiling and would be a wonderful dog to come home to after a long day at work ?"

What Town &Country says about Achilles He went to our good friends at Allied Dog Training and aced his training. When his training was over we couldn't bear for him to go back to boarding. We asked his Rescue if we could take him under our wing and they agreed! Rescue is about the well being of the dog and in this case Achilles will continue to thrive while we search for his home!!! Here is what our trainer says: Achilles does well with a submissive not in your face dog. He is not a fan of cats. He is a wiggle butt and LOVES all people. Respectful children 7 and up. Achilles is approximately 5-6 years old and is located in Dutchess County NY. He is neutered, UTD on shots and micro-chipped. Applications: www.townandcountryk9resq.com under contact us.

A very nice dog about two years old, Pedro lived with a cat and even three birds ..He's about 50 lbs and our best guess is that he is a shepherd pit mix. He loves to romp and play and likes the other dogs. He would benefit from a basic obedience class to learn better leash skills,but is a great and loving boy. Would make a very nice family dog With a little practice, he would make a great agility dog or frisbee player

Lulu is an exceptional dog.....She’s four years old and a little more than 50lbs. We think she is a pit mix with American Bulldog. She would most likely want to be your only pet,however, she is very child friendly and successfully lived with a one and five year old in perfect harmony.. Unfortunately for Lulu the family had personal issues that resulted in Lulu becoming homeless...this is a tragedy as she is a wonderful and very deserving dog. She’s cuddly and loves to play. She walks nicely and listens when spoken to. She enjoys toys but is not destructive at all... She had a nice home for more than one year. Please consider her if you are looking for a child friendly dog and only plan to have one pet.

You see,we do not think Phantom can hear or at least not very much....he has turned out to be a truly wonderful dog...he loves everyone and he’s so funny. When you take him out,he walks about five steps and then rolls over for a belly rub...he just is all of a sudden on the ground...with all four paws in the air...we love him and know there will be a special family for him.

Introducing TIGER ??? Tiger showed up as a stray at the Yonkers Animal Shelter last week and we said “oh, this is someone’s dog “he was clean, friendly, a nice weight,confident around people and just a really, really nice dog....what was he doing roaming around on his own ? Well, today is the day he is available for adoption so someone’s loss will definitely be another family’s gain. Tiger seems to be 2-3 yrs and about 55 lbs. he has an amazing Brindle and white coat in a medium brown and black color and the markings reminded the staff of. A tiger so hence his name was born ! Tiger also has a nose shaped like a heart, giving him a very special look. This dog loves everyone he has met,human and canine....next we will introduce Tiger to the kitties...Hopefully, such a nice dog will have a short stay here at the shelter, Let’s hope so..
