History

I spent most of my life with a lady who was not able to provide much care for me. She fed me well (too much actually), but didn’t have the resources to take care of my medical issues, and didn’t have the time or energy to devote much to me. Luckily she agreed to surrender me to her relative so I could get into rescue, which is how I ended up in my AMAZING Cayuga Dog Rescue foster home! Holy moly! Life is so good now, and I’m told it will be even better when I find my new forever family!

History

My family adopted me from the Tompkins County SPCA two years ago; I was two years old at the time so I’m pretty sure I’m almost four years old. The SPCA was very scary for me and I barked and growled at everyone while in my room. When I met my people in a neutral area of the facility, they sat on the floor and were given treats to share with me and soon I was coming to them and letting them pet me. Then they got a toy and threw it for me … Continue reading

Why I am Looking for a New Home

I was rescued from the streets of Tucson, Arizona when I was only 1 month old. I was very skinny and scared, but was nursed back to health by Tucson Cause for Canines. When I was 6 months old, my parents moved to Tucson and adopted me as a companion for their older dog Petunia!

Petunia and I became fast friends, and have shared many exciting adventures and afternoon snuggles together. However, I occasionally feel threatened by having … Continue reading

History

Hi! My name is Trent. I was found on the streets of Trenton, NJ (hence my name) as a stray on 7/31 by Trenton Animal Control, and was discovered by my rescuer at a local animal hospital on 8/1. She saw the state I was in and was so sad for me; the doctors informed her that I would go back to a shelter in 1 more day. I looked very skinny (I was only 59 lbs. and should be 75lbs!) and am very … Continue reading

History

I landed in a high-kill shelter in KY as a stray. Very bad luck for me, as many of the dogs there end up euthanized due to lack of space to house them or resources to care for them. But since I was clearly just the absolute sweetest dog imaginable, the shelter workers reached out to a rescue person in KY who reached out to CDR, and I got rescued! I am so grateful and am passionate about making every day a joyful one, and spreading happiness and smiles everywhere I go!

Personality

I am an extraordinarily sweet and happy girl who is typically pretty calm but … Continue reading

History

I’ve been with my foster family for a little while now and even though I missed my previous family at first, I’m embracing this new life. Someone dropped me off at a high-kill shelter in Kentucky and gave the nice people there my name, but no other details. I came with an up-to-date rabies tag, and didn’t show any obvious signs of having been mistreated, but my age put me on “the list.” After a week, Cayuga Dog Rescue saved my life. Thank you, CDR!

Personality

Want to play? Want to cuddle? I LOVE that! I’m a playful little sweetie with a fun-loving personality, I am bursting with friendliness … Continue reading

  • Size: 40 pounds

    • Cats? Yes?
    • Kids? No

History and Current Situation

Chloe’s former life must have been rough, as it has left her feeling quite shy and anxious when meeting strangers and when confronted with new sights or sounds. We know that she spent some months chained up to a barn and ignored by her most recent owners, but assume that her life prior to that was also scary and lacking in love and security.

Chloe has been in a wonderful CDR foster home for the past few months, and is finally starting to feel safe. When she first came to our foster program, she hid in the back of her (open) crate and … Continue reading

History

I was found when I was around a year old and brought to the SPCA in Ithaca, where the kind folks there discovered I already knew some basic commands. My sweet face, cool tricks and intelligent manner got me adopted quickly by a couple who I stayed with for a little over a year. I stayed home with my mom most days and got a lot of attention. Unfortunately, my parents split up and I ended up with daddy, who took great care of me but … Continue reading
