I’m Jake, and I am a SUPER smart, loyal, and affectionate boy! History and Why I Am Looking for a New Home Rough back story! One very cold night in February, on the shore of Oneida Lake, I think someone just dumped me. Very scary and confusing. I spent the next 36 days running in a 10 mile circle, visiting the same houses over and over, and so hoping that I would find my family again. It was tough times for me,filled with fear, cold, wind, rain, and snow. One man sent out his hunting beagles to “run me back, someone else threatened to shoot me if they saw me again, and I was almost hit by cars more times than…

And while I am absolutely loving learning now that people can be amazingly sweet and kind, I am still quite cautious and will cower or run and hide when humans move too quickly or reach for me (especially over my head). If people let me take my time, watch them from a safe distance, and then come to them when I’m ready, I feel much happier and safer, and…

I am Ayla (it means “moonlight”), and I am adorable, sweet, and loving! History I am one of the lucky ones, because even though I’ve had a number of very sad losses, and also a lot of physical discomfort, I had a lot of love in my former life in rural KY. I was found as a stray puppy by a really sweet guy who lived on a farm. He kept me, loved me, and I had a fine life roaming around the farm with him all day long.

My name is Cedar, and I’m a fun-loving, sweet-hearted, enthusiastic Lab-Beagle mix! History I’ve lived with my family in Ithaca for about 4 months. Before that, I had spent my whole life in shelters, which was very sad and scary for a tiny puppy! I was born in Alabama, landed in a shelter there, and then was transported at 4 months old to a no-kill shelter in Binghamton, NY. Whew! That was lucky! Then I got adopted by my current family and life started to get much better! I learned so much in the past 4-5 months! I got house-broken, learned how to walk on a leash, what kinds of furniture were ok to be on (couches) and what kinds weren’t (tables, haha!), and…

We and another older, smaller dog lived together so happily and with so much love until our mom passed away 5 months ago. Her passing was the saddest thing ever. We didn’t have any place to go, so mom’s vet clinic boarded us while they searched for new homes for us. After 5 months of patient waiting, we both found places to go! I got to enter the CDR foster program and am now living in a wonderful foster home which is so much fun, I cannot stop smiling! There is a really…
