My life started at an Amish puppy mill in PA. My foster grandpa saw me and knew I deserved better, so he bought me and brought me to NY to meet my foster mom. She started the hunt to find me my own loving family, but then I got really sick. I was diagnosed with a severe …

When i arrived to Ithaca, our veterinarian found that I am heartworm positive.  So sad, but wow, so lucky that I landed in rescue and in a town with awesome vets to give me the best treatment possible!  After initial testing, I was brought up to Cornell Cardiology in mid-December for a cardiac ultrasound and chest x-rays, to see how advanced the disease was, and if i was a good candidate for treatment.  It was all good news!  My heart and lungs looked …

Hello! My name is Dahlia (Dolly for short!) and I am the sweet-sweet-sweet!

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

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

I was a part of my family for almost seven years, when my 1st mommy and daddy adopted me from the Sean Casey Animal Rescue in Brooklyn, NY. I made the move to Rochester with them and I have been by their side (even at their wedding!) as they made the transition into becoming parents of two young children. As sometimes happens when the kids come along, their lives changed so much and I ended up being home alone an …
