Today I would like to introduce you all to a very handsome boy named Cola. Sadly, he just marked his 2 year anniversary at the Yonkers Shelter. It’s really too long for such a handsome fellow to be without his own family. Cola was born to be someone’s true-blue best friend, could it be you??

Here’s what makes this boy SO special:

Cola is a 3 year old 65 lb goofball and has the most heart-melting gaze. He’s one gorgeous brindle boy who wants to be the apple of your eye, so for now only pet is recommended.

He did seem ok around other dogs at first, but life in the shelter has changed him, so he may possibly be dog selective. A meet and greet is recommended to assess this situation. He is not fond of cats, and a home with children over 10 would be best.

He is a low-maintenance kind of guy that just wants to be loved and treated kindly. He’s a sweet, cuddly couch companion very affectionate and people loving!

Cola also has an adventurous side, he would love to be your adventure partner, but he’s also happy to chill at home and be your tv watching partner too.

Cola is just extremely sweet dog, and a great companion. He cannot wait to meet his forever family and and start showing his love and affection for them! His ideal home would let him join in on any family adventures. He loves outside time so a fenced in yard is a must, he loves tennis balls, and outdoor play so he would be thrilled to join a family that appreciated that too. Mostly, Cola just wants a home that will love him forever!

For more information on Cola you can visit his petfinder page:

PLEASE SHARE TO HELP COLA!! Stop by and visit his Facebook page like and share that too!

Barley is a gorgeous boy who is looking for love. He was picked up as a stray by a Good Samaritan in February of 2015 and no one has come to take him home.

Barley has been in the shelter for over 2 years. Sadly he is known as the “invisible boy in the shelter”. He is another of the forgotten dogs that I mentioned in my September 20th post:

http://www.pawsgivemepurpose.com/shelter-spotlight-the-forgotten-ones/

Barley is a favorite with the volunteers, but sadly no one that comes to the shelter ever asks about him. He has no interest 😓 He cries himself to sleep every night in his kennel. Just hearing about this breaks my heart into a million pieces. ALL HE WANTS IS TO BE LOVED! Will you be his hero??

Barley is the complete package! He loves attention, playing with toys, spending time outside with people running, playing, hiking. He also makes a great cuddle buddy and can sit on the couch snuggled up to you while you watch a movie or read a book. Barley does however need to be your one and only, in an adult home with no children and no other pets.

Barley is being treated for Anaplasmosis, a tick-born disease, he is well on his way to recovery and will be better in no time. He is 60 pounds, 5-7 years young, up to date on vaccinations and is heartworm negative.

I ask that you please share this post, and head over to Barleys Facebook page and like and share it too! We need to help him get noticed!

https://www.facebook.com/adoptBarley/

Let’s show him that his life matters, that he’s not invisible!! Help me help Barley get out of the shelter so he can really begin to live the life he deserves.

Beautiful Dinah is yet another forgotten soul sitting in a shelter kennel for much too long. I first introduced you to Dinah in my article entitled “Shelter Spotlight: The Forgotten Ones”. In case you might have missed that post you can find it here:

http://www.pawsgivemepurpose.com/shelter-spotlight-the-forgotten-ones/

I know that no 2 people are the same, but when it comes to dogs I really can’t wrap my head around the fact that they can just be let go, given up, tossed in a shelter, unwanted then euthanized for simply being. My pups are family members, I would NEVER do something like this! I have gone through difficult times, I have had dogs with difficult behaviors, those that have aged, etc; I never gave up on them. I did and will continue to do what is necessary to keep them here with their loving family!

I am pleading with you all to to please take a minute and think about what this is like. Dogs, like people, have feelings. When you grow older or maybe your child isn’t listening to you, would this be how you’d handle the situation? Would you let your parent, your child, your aging grandparent out into the street or tie them to a fence for someone to find them because you decided they were no longer of use to you?

Beautiful Dinah was evidently tossed out into the street in this manner, arriving at the shelter February 10, 2014. She was found as a stray and waited for her family to come, but unfortunately they never came.

If you visit the shelter you may find Dinah sitting at the end of her kennel or leaning on the fence with such a forlorn look in her eyes; she wonders why she has been in the shelter so long. But once she notices you she is quickly overcome with excitement in the hopes that soon she will have a home, a family, the love that she so deserves!

Dinah is a sweet girl who loves toys, playing in the snow and being with people. She absolutely lives for belly rubs and is very active so she would do best with an adult family. Whether they are runners, hikers or choose to do agility or scent training with her, she would greatly enjoy this.

Dinah is playful and smart; she is known to be very easy to train. She is good with most male dogs as long as they are not dominant, and would be best in a home with no cats. Dinah is a 5 year old female, spayed Bull Terrier/Shep mix weighing approximately 60 lbs.

I ask that you please help me help Dinah get out of the shelter and into a loving forever home, where she can begin to really live the life she deserves!

I ask that you please head over to her Facebook page, like, share, network this girl! Together we can find Dinah’s forever family, I know they are out there searching for her.

Shelter Spotlight: Dirty Secret Re-Exposed!

**** WARNING, THIS POST CONTAINS SOME DISTURBING IMAGES BELOW ****

 On August 7th I posted an article entitled “Shelter Spotlight: Dirty Secret Exposed”. In case you may have missed reading it here is the link to that post:

http://www.pawsgivemepurpose.com/shelter-spotlight-dirty-secret-exposed/

The Reformers- Advocates For Animal Shelter Change In NJ have shared updated information and the recent report and pictures from the August 22, 2017 inspection of The Associated Humane Societies Newark facility by the State Board of Health.

NJ INSPECTORS FIND GRIM VIOLATIONS AT NEWARK ANIMAL SHELTER!! 

I ask that you please take some time to read the report. You can read the detailed inspection report here:

https://www.facebook.com/REFORMERSNJ/posts/1141169229349753

The pictures below, showcased in green are the pictures of the dogs locked in a damp basement where the only light that illuminated the picture was the flash from the States camera. I warn you, these images are difficult to look at, simply heartbreaking!

“It has come to THE ATTENTION of the Reformers – Advocates for Animal Shelter Change in NJ that Roseann Trezza, the Executive Director of Associated Humane Society, Newark, has told the employees and volunteers that if they share the inspection report they will be banned from the facility or fired.” 

Please sign this petition and pass it along to friends and family in order to remove this woman from her position as Executive Director at The Associated Humane Societies Newark facility.

https://www.change.org/p/reformers-advocates-for-animal-shelter-change-in-nj-stop-the-killing-at-associated-in-humane-society-newark?recruiter=88688690&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink&utm_campaign=share_petition&utm_term=share_for_starters_page

By definition animal shelters are devoted to the temporary care and shelter of homeless or unwanted animals. Nearly every city in the United States has at least one animal shelter. Shelters require numerous employees and volunteers, and must follow various state and local laws and regulations. Clearly The Associated Humane Societies Newark facility doesn’t care about the animals at all! 

The public should be outraged by this! I am sharing this with all of you my dear family, friends, readers, followers, and asking that you share, spread the word so we can help these animals!!

JOIN ME, STEP UP, SAVE LIVES! DON’T LET THIS ISSUE GET “SWEPT UNDER THE RUG!” PLEASE LET’S DO THIS FOR THE ANIMALS AT NEWARK WHO ARE SUFFERING DAILY!!

Shelter Spotlight: Jay Z, Seeking Love And A Lifetime of Kisses


“I’m Jay Z and a I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for you. I’m a playful but gentle soul and it’s been said I have an irresistible look. I want to take you shopping to all the best pet stores and then we will lunch at a quaint outdoor cafe. I wish to make you my special person, my number one favorite human . Do you want a special boy to love and adore? Then choose me , I will return your affection with loyalty, love and companionship. look me up at The Yonkers NY Animal Shelter. I’m Jay Z and I’m just waiting to meet you”.

I have shared this handsome hunk many times and will continue to do so until that special someone notices he is waiting for them! He is still looking for his forever family! 

For some of you that may be new to hearing about Jay Z, he has asked me to tell you a little bit about him. 

What he really really wants you to know most is that he’s tired of the bar scene and really really wants to go home.  

Jay Z, a blue nosed low rider ended up in dog jail when his owner was incarcerated. That was March of 2016. 😞

Jay-Z is truly a special boy. He’s got personality to spare, and is always smiling. He’s smart, affectionate, medium energy and beyond handsome. He walks nicely on leash, loves a quick run in the yard, and then is happy to snuggle with his person and shower them with affection. 

He knows lots of commands – sit, down, stay, and high 5 with both paws. When he sees a person he loves, his whole body wiggles with happiness.

Jay Z may do well with a submissive female as a sibling, but a meet and greet would be mandatory. No kitties for this little land shark. Kids over 10 should be fine. 

Again dear family, friends, readers and followers I ask that you SHARE THIS BOY LIKE CRAZY!! If you or anyone you know is interested in this handsome hunk contact information is listed below. Please reach out, you can make a difference in Jay Zs life! 

HELP ME HELP JAY Z FIND HIS FOREVER FAMILY! ❤️

Shelter Spotlight: Tila Asks A Question

EXCUSE ME IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE WHO CAN FOSTER OR ADOPT ME? 

https://www.facebook.com/adoptTila/

Once again, I come to all of you for help. I will continue to share the stories of forgotten dogs who have spent WAY too much time in shelter kennels. Most recently I shared the stories of the longest “jailed” forgotten dogs, Tila is one of them. In case you missed it, you can read that post here: 

http://www.pawsgivemepurpose.com/shelter-spotlight-the-forgotten-ones/

I have shared Tilas story MANY times, yet she still sits behind bars longing for a forever home. I will not stop sharing these stories until every single one of these beautiful souls go to a home where they can really start to live the life they deserve! 

This gorgeous 5-6 year old girl was found by the police as a stray in March of 2016. Tila came in with a collar on, but no tags, and no owner has ever come to claim her. 

Tila is a volunteer favorite who is guaranteed to steal your heart. Go meet her and get ready to fall in love ❤

Tila needs to be the queen of her castle, no other dogs. It is recommended that she go to a home with older children as well. Tila is such a good dog who is always overlooked at the shelter, and I can’t understand why! 

Tila walks nicely on a leash and has a calm an quiet personality. If you or anyone you know is interested in fostering or adopting this beautiful girl, contact information is listed below. 

PLEASE, HELP ME HELP TILA FIND HER FOREVER FAMILY! Share this post and her Facebook page. Together we can do this!
