History

I was owned by someone way down in KY who was quite unwell and couldn’t take care of me. I developed a really severe skin allergy and had chronic otitis in both ears (painful!) which went untreated for a very long time. My ears got all swollen and have stayed that way to some degree. I suffered a lot for quite a long time and was very sad. Then my owner finally decided she could no longer take care of me, so surrendered me to a high-kill shelter, suggesting that they euthanize me. She thought I didn’t hear this, but of course I did. … Continue reading

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

I landed in a very high kill rural shelter in Kentucky, missing half of my fur and with skin so red and raw it was painful to look at. Sadly, that shelter provides no medical care, so I lay there for weeks, itching 24 hours a day and feeling like my skin was on fire. Luckily, another KY shelter scooped me up before I was going to be put to sleep and brought me to their much better shelter, then contacted CDR and asked if I could come up to their foster program. Guess what? They said YES! It was a long ride but boy am I happy to be here, … 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!

History

In the Spring of 2013, a local Central NY dog rescue group rescued me from a high kill shelter in South Carolina when I was 9 months old. At the time, my current family was fostering dogs for the rescue group, and took me in as one of their foster dogs. I got along very well with their 4 year old male dog. We play wrestled, chased each other around the yard, and took turns fetching the ball. After a few weeks, my family decided to adopt me.

I am about 5 years old now, and … 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!

History

My former life was rough and scary and left me quite shy and nervous about new people, new places, and unexpected sounds. Before being rescued, I spent some months chained up to a barn and ignored by the people who were supposed to be my people, and where I was before that was also awful, but I try not to think about it. I am thankful every day that the Cornell vet students who came to the farm where I was chained out, offered to take me from those mean people. And I am thankful that those people didn’t want me, and were … 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
