Hi there! 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) …

History

An elder in the family went into nursing care with dementia and when I was transferred into a temporary foster care situation, they found that I had unfortunately been severely neglected due to the dementia of my owner.

History

I was abused and beaten by my first owner. I was taken in by a rescue group and lived in a foster home for a year before being adopted by my current family. I did not trust men until I had lived with my current owners for several months. I was never aggressive, but cowered when they tried to pet me. Now I am fine with men and women as well as children. I have been with my current …

My name is Sammy (aka, “Scampers”) and I am a delightful and adorable little guy!

History

I am the most delightful, adorable, sweet, funny, silly, loving, affectionate, and friendly little guy! I used to live in Katmandu, Nepal, on the streets (like a ton of dogs there), and life was awfully hard.

I had no idea how much harder it could get, but then I was struck by a motorbike or motorcar and became paralysed from the waist down. Oh boy, that was really rough. But when faced with challenges, you just kind of figure it out, so I learned to drag myself around pretty well using my front arms! Thankfully, a wonderful Nepal rescue group found me dragging myself …

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 to share my space with my sister (maybe due …

History

I used to have a family, and lived with other dogs, but my owners ran into hard times, couldn’t feed us very well (I was very skinny) and eventually had to surrender us to their local shelter in Kentucky. That was very sad and also very scary, because I heard a lot of people say that the shelter was overcrowded and that older dogs never get picked for adoption. I just hid my head under my paws and waited for the end to come.

But wow, how life can change on a dime! The shelter staff saw what a total sweetheart I was, and …
