My name is Arthur and my big smile warms up a room! History I had a very sad life before I came to stay in my foster home.

I lived there for two months but I hated it so much; I was stressed out and anxious in my kennel. Thankfully there are some great volunteers who came to visit me and they encouraged my foster mom to take me home, so thanks to the help of Cayuga Dog Rescue I am outta that shelter and living in a warm cozy house…

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!
