04/27/2013 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: I love the ‘elder-bulls’. They’ve been around, experienced a lot, and are grateful for some attention, a slow walk and a warm place to sleep. Scrappy is a handsome elder, sleeping in his kennel but getting up quickly when I opened his kennel door and he saw my leash. He stepped outside and ‘went’ immediately indicating his is likely housetrained. Scrappy is a bit on the chunky side, walking slowly as he investigates his new environment. From time to time he steps up his pace showing me how lively he can be. He is friendly in a low key, easy going way. He was shy posing for photos as he was much more interested in continuing his exploratory walk. As a small Yorkie approached he wagged his tail gently as he did at all dogs we met. If you are looking for a companion with whom to watch your favorite TV shows, who won’t ask you to change channels or take over the remote control, Scrappy is your man! Ask to meet him today. He’d like to be home in time to watch the final competition of ‘The Voice’!!

Original thread:

For more information on adopting please read the following:

DO NOT call the shelter and say you are adopting unless you truly intend on physically going to the shelter to adopt the dog. It ties up phones lines and is a waste of the staff’s time to explain the adoption procedure over the phone for someone who is purposely not going to show up. They need every free second of their time to answer calls, assist actual adopters, process intakes, and care for the animals. More importantly, they will note the dog’s file that an adopter is en route which will prevent an actual adopter from saving the dog. This is considered a “fake adoption” hold and that is how dogs fall through the cracks and end up being killed.

For more information on a particular dog, email but ONLY if serious about adopting, and ONLY if you are able to GO TO the shelter in-person. Please do not email for status updates… the only thing you will accomplish is spamming their in boxes and causing REAL adopter emails to go un-noticed. Contact the NYC ACC at (212) 788-4000 for further automated instructions. — with Tonya Brewer-Dantes, Margie Brunner Yoslowitz, Yougenia Ahern, Lea Leiby, Susanne Schweitzer, Jeannie Collins, Heidi Ho, Lori Ann Avella Selch, Jan Ayres, Denise Garbarz, Trea Elianna W, Carley Boulet, Cindy Carlone and Jules Corriere.
