We met Juice on Christmas Eve, 2016 after he was found tied to a pole and abandoned on a construction lot. Brought in by the NYPD, the team at the ASPCA Animal Recovery Center (ARC) immediately set out to help the ailing dog who was underweight and suffered from unidentified bite wounds on his body, ear infections and a skin infection. In early February 2017, Juice was moved from ARC to the Adoption Center, and the search for his new home began. But we were faced with a challenge: Juice, like many dogs, did not acclimate well to life in a shelter setting. He was anxious and extremely vocal when potential adopters would walk by his enclosure. It wasn’t until Juice met Gemar, a young man who began working a summer job with the ASPCA, that he was finally given his chance.

We first met Morgan in late June, when she was brought to the ASPCA by a Good Samaritan who’d found the eight-month-old pit bull-mix abandoned underneath a footbridge in NYC. Though she wasn’t critically injured, Morgan’s unkempt and filthy coat, along with other signs of neglect, indicated that she’d been on her own for some time. After her arrival and initial examination, Morgan spent just over a month in the ASPCA’s Animal Recovery Center (ARC), where she was cleaned up and able to receive proper care. Once Morgan was ready to move to the ASPCA Adoption Center and begin her search for a loving home, it was only a matter of weeks before the lovable gray-and-white pup caught an adopter’s eye.

Hurricane Maria spared nothing in its path—including the largest animal shelter in St. Croix.
Per a request from FEMA, the ASPCA deployed an assessment team to the island. One of this team’s top priorities was to check on the St. Croix Animal Welfare Center. This shelter is a vital resource to the island’s homeless dogs and cats. Fortunately, more than 100 shelter animals were evacuated off the island before Maria hit.

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and we’ve teamed up with shelters all across the country to bring attention to homeless dogs with our #FindYourFido campaign! Who is Fido, you ask? Fido could be any dog, in any shelter, in any city or town. Fido could be big or small, fluffy or sleek, lazy or playful—but most importantly, every Fido needs a home.

Sweet, playful Tori was brought to the ASPCA in June by NYPD officers after she’d been found abandoned and tethered on a rooftop. Everyone at the ASPCA Adoption Center hoped that the two-year-old pit bull-mix would soon find not only the loving home she deserved, but a pet parent that truly deserved her and the love she had to give. After being adopted and returned twice, ASPCA staff and volunteers never gave up hope that a family fit for Tori wasn’t far away. Fortunately for Tori, they were absolutely right. By mid-August, Kevin T. came into the Adoption Center with his sights set on Tori. “As soon as I saw her, I was in love, “ Kevin said about his first introduction with Tori.

Roscoe was rescued by the ASPCA at the request of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office last July 16 with 25 other cats and one dog from an overcrowded mobile home in Marshallville, Ohio. The animals were surrendered by their owner before being transported to several shelters—including Citizens for Humane Action Animal Shelter (CHA), which took in nine cats for adoption. It was there that Roscoe met Laurie S. – a cat lover who had recently lost the second of her two Maine Coon cats – an orange-and-white, long-haired beauty named Norman. Roscoe and Laurie turned out to be the perfect match, read the rest of their heartwarming story at aspca.org/news
