A volunteer writes:
Can there be any more cute to this little guy? All tail wagging in his gorgeous black and white coat, he poses for photos, sits when asked to, takes treats hungrily, is puppy friendly with the right combination of playfulness and snuggles – he is the dream puppy – he even ‘went’ as soon as we were out the door so may be on his way to being housetrained. Throw in a bunch of kisses and hugs and the fact that he rocked his behavior assessment – pretty darn impressive for a puppy – and he is ready to find his new home. Spotty is ready to meet his new BFF, or a family of them! Come meet him today and I guarantee you’ll be going home with him.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 unnoticed. Contact the NYC ACC at (212) 788-4000 for further automated instructions. — with Majdoline Bashir, Honey Stattfordshire, Mina V Daisy, Mina Linda and Kim Rogus.
