So Tofu is still pretty filthy, but she and her greasy sister are getting a tiny bit cleaner with each bath. We just rescued these 5-week-old sisters two days, and they were covered in tar when they were brought to @nycacc by some kind @nypd police officers. They've had a bunch of baths with oil and soap, and the tar is still coming off. We have no idea how they got that way, whether it was an accident or done to them on purpose before the police officers found them, but we are glad they are hungry and seem otherwise in okay shape. Tofu and her sister Dumpling have joined the @ainsbury_animal_adventures crew along with their new equally tiny foster brother Mushu. They are having a blast together -- between baths -- and all will be up for adoption in about 3 to 4 weeks! #adoptme #adoptdontshop #kitten #kittens #kittensofinstagram #rescuecat #animalrescue #accsurvivor #lucky #love #life #tofu #dumpling #bath #fosteringsaveslives #hungry #blackcat #blackkitten #sisters #raisingawareness #savinglives #changetheworld #socialtees #socialteesnyc #straypride

This is the posting from @socialteesnyc that won @hillaryandmatthew’s heart:
__

She’s got it all -- the scruff, the puppy dog eyes (behind the scruff), the floppy dobby ears, the playful personality with just a touch of shyness so you feel extra special when she nuzzles you. Swoon. She’s about 5 or 6 months old, 14 lbs, and super wonderful. She adores other dogs and wrestles the day away with her big, tolerant hound foster sister. She also loves playing with toys and will amuse herself by pouncing on one and chewing it all up in the most adorable way -- you'll actually lol when you see how happy and sill she is at playtime. She walks well on a leash, and while she's brand new to NYC from the west coast, she's quickly warming up to the hubbub and all the LOTS of attention she gets. She will probably get a little bigger before she's full grown but not too much, and she'd do best in an active home. Interested in adopting?

Repost: If you have ever fostered an animal.....you know that moment when you get a call about one who has run out of options....and if you are like me you do a mental flashcard list of the reasons you should not take on another foster....i already have three foster kittens....i have a senior foster cat with lots of medical issues.....i have countless things I need to be doing.........and even as you are mentally listing these valid reasons for saying no...your mouth is saying "I will take him" "Not sure what will happen.....but I will try". Such is the case with this little guy. Meet Toshi (where his name came from is a story for another day). He was handed over to a shelter in our area that does not have the resources or ability to care for him - they contacted Jacqueline Baffoni who in turned called me asking what I thought if anything could be done. The bottom half of Toshi's body is completely paralyzed.

When you first look at him, your initial thought is "oh the poor thing...." then you spend 3 minutes in his company and realize - this boy is happy and enjoying life. He eats like a champ, he plays with any toy you give him, and he purrs with his whole little body as soon as you talk to him.

So I've taken Toshi to the vet and learned he has a fractured spine - it is a deformity he was born with so to him this is "normal". He is 5 weeks old and his life has just begun. Long-term I can not keep him - but for now he is safe and I now begin reaching out to as many people as I can to find him a home. He will require more work than a regular cat -so a person or rescue with experience with semi-paralyzed animals would be the ideal spot.

Finding him a home may not be easy - but I have faith someone out there needs him as much as he needs them. Please help me by showing his story far and wide - we will find his family - I just know it <3 #hellohaystack #Ihaveyourneedle #ToshisTale

That itty bitty face! Blanche looks like a scruffy little mouse and is just the most darling girl. This 8-month-old Jack Russell mix is only about 7 lbs, entirely enchanting, and starts wagging her tail and flips over for belly rubs when you just look at her. She's friendly with everyone, good with other animals, and would do best in an active home. She came from the west coast and is still adjusting to life in the big city, so she could use a little time and confidence training to help her get more comfy outside and around bigger dogs, which make her nervous. Her foster mom says: "Blanche is a cuddle bug. She is content in her own bed, but lovvvves to be on your lap, next to you, or curled up in the adult bed with us. She loves to be loved. She doesn't really enjoy walks yet because she's afraid, but we are working on that. The second I set down my bag she crawls in and would rather be carried around. She's playful when she gets home but is content laying by your side and relaxing with you. She's using wee wee pads but has some work to do on potty training. She's shy around big dogs but likes small ones. I have 2 cats and she basically ignores them. Though she is a bit curious. She's absolutely great with gentle children! My 6 year old plays with her, carries her, and snuggles with her." Interested in adopting?

Right off the bat, you probably notice something a little unique about Hermie: This 1 year old Chihuahua mix has a leg that looks kind of like a golf club. He was probably born that way and it doesn't seem to bother him, but he might have an arthritis issue in that joint when he's older. For now, he gets around fine and it's important to keep him nice and light, as it is with any dog. Hermie is about 9 lbs, and his adorably crooked limb is not the only unique thing about him -- his shining, happy, super sweet personality wins over just about everyone he meets. He's good with other animals, well behaved, cuddly, and walks well on a leash. He is a loyal and upbeat little guy, and he will be the absolute love of some very lucky person's life.

Regranned from *socialteesnyc - Why are puppies that look like grandpas somehow so much cuter than that sounds like it would be? And have you ever seen anything more adorable than these eyebrows? And the way the tips of his ears curl out like Jane Jetson's hair? And how his chest hair fluffs out like a mustache that might make even Sam Elliott prickle with envy? Meet Pebbles! He (yep, he's a boy with a funny name) is about 8 weeks old, full of curiosity, great with other animals, and very smart. He will probably be 10 to 15 lbs full grown, and he'd do best in a medium active to active home. His foster mom says: "Pebbles is the spunkiest of his siblings. He's become my dog Oakley's little mini me; running after everything he does. He's fearless but sweet. He loves wrestling with his brother and his foster siblings and exploring as much as he loves some lap time or curling up on the couch with his humans. He's going to make an amazing playful companion!" Interested in adopting?

Unless you're really, really into kittens, this video might not be super exciting because it's just some tiny baby cats eating -- but to us it is VERY special. We just rescued these 5-week-old sisters last night, and this is their FIRST MEAL as free, loved, cared for animals. They were covered in tar when they were brought to @nycacc by some kind @nypd police officers, and they've had multiple baths with oil and soap, and the tar is still coming off. We have no idea how they got that way, whether it was an accident or done to them on purpose before the police officers found them, but we are glad they are hungry and seem otherwise in okay shape. Meet Tofu and Dumpling! They have joined the @ainsbury_animal_adventures crew along with their new equally tiny foster brother Mushu. We are eager to watch them grow, all will be up for adoption in about 3 to 4 weeks! #adoptme #adoptdontshop #kitten #kittens #kittensofinstagram #rescuecat #animalrescue #accsurvivor #lucky #love #life #tofu #dumpling #fosteringsaveslives #hungry #blackcat #blackkitten #sisters #raisingawareness #savinglives #changetheworld #socialtees #socialteesnyc #straypride

It's another one of those times when the evening itself slightly slipped past us, but we just came across this photo hidden on our phone between stupid puppy pics and other animal stuff, and we were like oh geez, how could we NOT have shared this? It's cuter than all those stupid puppy pics! But wait it IS a puppy pic, just not a stupid one? Anyhoo... Praline got adopted recently!!!!! It was super fate, and we loved the couple that took her home so much that we wished we could have gone with them too. Awkward.

EMERGENCY!!! THIS DOG NEEDS A FOSTER HOME STARTING TONIGHT!!! Coco is about 5 years old, 17 lbs, and very cuddly. This Chihuahua mix is housebroken, well mannered, great with other dogs, and would do best in a medium active grownups only household ideally in a quiet neighborhood or out of the city. She is shy at first but once she has learned to trust she wants to be your best friend and shadow. Coco loves to climb into your lap at every given moment. At night she will sleep in your arms, and she loves cats and kittens -- and belly rubs. PLEASE HELP!!! Pickup is tonight, if you can foster, please submit an application at socialteesnyc.org and email [email protected] NOW! #adoptme #adoptdontshop #chihuahua #chihuahuasofinstagram #rescuedog #animalrescue #fosteringsaveslives #raisingawareness #savinglives #gooddog #waiting #coco #socialtees #socialteesla #socialteesnyc #straypride

@Regrann from @socialteesnyc - It's like puppy WWF over here when Moss and Marilee are on the scene. These rambunctious little Collie mixes are about 10 weeks old, will probably be in the 30s or 40s weight wise full grown, are very sweet and playful, learn fast, and would do best in active homes. They are total crowd pleasers everywhere they go, and Marilee's insanely blue eyes literally stop people in their tracks and their jaws hit the floor and they turn to puppy obsessed goop. (Well the tracks part was literal but not the jaws and goop stuff.) Interested in adopting either?
