Hi! My name is Sweetpea and I am the happiest, most fun little girl around!


I was found as a stray and landed in a rough, dismal shelter in Tennessee. Luckily a wonderful rescue worker there knows about Cayuga Dog Rescue, and knew they would want to rescue me! I hopped a ride on the Canine Underground Railroad and made my way all the way to Ithaca to the CDR foster program! I love my new life, getting to meet new people, playing with all of my cool new toys, and relaxing on my comfy dog bed. It’s been so much fun!!

I was found as a stray and landed in an over-crowded shelter in rural KY, where I became a staff favorite, because I was incredibly affectionate, had such zest for life, and unbridled enthusiasm!!

I am told that I am …

Hi! My name is Lilly (aka Lily Bear, Little Bear, and Cutie Pants), and I am ridiculously adorable, sweet, loving, and very smart!


I was rescued from an overcrowded KY shelter when I was only 4 months old and have been here in foster care with CDR ever since. When I was first rescued by CDR, their nice vets found that I had a previously fractured pelvis (consistent with being kicked, hard) and one of my ears appears to have been ½-cut off with scissors. Clearly, my first few months of life were rough, but you’d never know it, as I am the happiest, sweetest, most adoring and adorable girl around!


I am a super friendly, happy, playful and affectionate girl! Everyone always …
