04/23/2013 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Tiger is a marvelous young lady who appears to be able to do it all, an engaging playful bundle of fun ready for a new life! In the backyard, she chases and catches tossed tennis balls with quick footwork and agile jumps. Her movements are so graceful and fluid, she reminds me of a trained dancer or professional athlete. At the park, Tiger is an absolute darling who walks well on leash, checking in every so often and passing other dogs with just a curious look – even the playful pup that wagged his tail in friendship as she strode along. And when we rest on a park bench, she sits nice and quiet next to me as we watch the world meander along. Although Tiger joined us a stray, a mommy not too long ago, her lovely coat and good manners suggest she had a home until recently. She “sits” nicely on command, even nicer when offered a treat, and seems disciplined about housetraining, “going” as soon as we were outside. What Tiger needs now is a family that will love and cherish her forever, a family that will indulge her with playtime and long walks in the park. If you’re that family, or that person, hustle on down to the Care Center today! Be prepared to fall in love!

A volunteer writes:
It is hard to capture the beauty that is Tiger! Her coat is soft and stunning, her eyes sparkle with friendship and life and she is all hugs and kisses and waggy tail! I loved spending time with her – she is fun, really does give great hugs, is lively and so enjoys having company on a warm afternoon. Tiger was the perfect companion with whom to end my shift and I look forward to my last kiss with her – when she is walking out the door, tail wagging, with her new family. She’s a gem who has been waiting too long for her BFF. Ask to meet her today.

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 adoption@nycacc.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 Juliet Tan, SecondChance Rescue, Carley Boulet and 45 others.
