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

Blizzard is just the most perfect little buddy. He is about 3 years old, 13 lbs, and stuck to you like glue once he knows you. He loves to cuddle, is chill at home when you're all lounging around, and he's good with other dogs. He's a little skittish on the street so far but he's only been in the city a week, and he walks very well on a leash considering. Blizzard is shy with new people and a little needy with those he loves, so he would do best in a home with someone who is around most of the day or can take him to work for now. This Schnauzer Terrier mix is going to be an incredible, loyal pet. His foster mom says: "Blizzard is doing so much better day by day that he's not the same dog we had a week ago. Blizzard needs some leash work and isn't fully potty trained but he's so smart those can be worked through in a short amount time. He's also a bit of a Velcro dog and wants to stick by his person and gets a little whiny when separated. Those things aside he's the cutest, funniest pup ever. He is SO smart. He loves to play fetch and play little games. Last night we were hiding or 'burying' his bone and he was having a blast playing with us. He has the sweetest demeanor but is very shy and needs to get used to someone before he opens up. He seems to remember people though so it's not a consistent issue once he's in a familiar place with a familiar face. He doesn't like when people or dogs approach him first or too enthusiastically, but he's getting better at that by the day. At first we thought he didn't like other dogs but now he approaches dogs his size or smaller with no fear (he's obsessed with a neighborhood doxie) so I think he'd be great with other friendly dogs. I think he would do best in a medium to active household with older kids or adults. Whoever gets him needs to have a little patience but the payoff for this loyal companion is huge."

(HUGE THANKS AGAIN to @puppylove_kittykat and @jessethepoo for the handsome grooming when he arrived last week!) #adoptme #adoptdontshop #cute #rescuedog #blizzard #rescuedogsofinstagram #schnauzer #socialteesnyc

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.

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 15 to 20 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.

WEBSTER WAS FOUND!!!!!! His new family searched high and low for him all last night and all today, luckily he had been hiding silently in some tall reeds nearby and he's unharmed and very relieved to be back in the car with his crew. We just arrived at the NJ rest stop in time to make sure everyone is alright, and we couldn't be more grateful to know he's safe and sound. The area here is thickly wooded, and he could have disappeared for good in a matter of seconds let alone hours. It is a true miracle that this shy baby stayed so close and was found unharmed. After so much stress, he was understandably shy when we went to say hello, but after we took this pic he jumped into his new mom's arms for a reassuring hug. THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who shared and offered help, we are so touched by the outpouring of support and love. #rescuedog #animalrescue #teamwork #love #lucky #luckydog #miracle #founddog #chihuahua #community #grateful #gratitude #life #socialteesnyc

URGENT!!! CARMINE NEEDS A NEW FOSTER HOME STARTING TONIGHT!!!! Carmine is around 8 years old, 70 lbs, great with other dogs and cats, walks well on a leash, and is pretty low key at home. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to make him a surgery appointment to have the growth in his back end removed Monday, but his foster dad is heading out of town so he has nowhere to go! We can't let this big sweetheart get stuck in a cage! Pickup is tonight at Social Tees and fostering lasts 2 to 4 weeks. If you can take him in, please submit the foster app at socialteesnyc.org and email [email protected] NOW!!!!

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.

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?

Everything about Pecan is perfect. We rescued this 18-month-old Collie mix a few weeks ago along with her eight bouncing, bumbling, ridiculous puppies. As the story tends to go, most of her babies have been adopted, but she is still waiting. Pecan is about 35 lbs, soft-spoken, a little shy but extremely sweet, totally housebroken, and a major snuggle bug. She loves cheese, is very gentle, and is friendly with all people and most other dogs. Pecan has an exceptionally lovely demeanor and a mellow energy that puts you at ease when you're in her presence. She's a great companion for long walks and generally just chills when she's at home after she's had her exercise. She's down for whatever and would do best in an active home. Her foster mom says: "I had never heard her bark until today, 11 days after I picked her up. She's very quiet in the house. Also, she's now been around a few young children (age 3 to 4 years) and is very patient. She may lift a paw or lick. She does jump, but it seems to only happen to adults when they're standing, and she's still very gentle about it. She's an incredibly loving dog. After a few moments of excitement after you come home, she is very calm and pretty much just wants to snuggle on a blanket or cuddle with you. That said, she definitely requires some good walks during the day to tire her out -- we've been doing 3x 30-60 minute walks and it seems to be enough to keep her energy levels balanced. So far she has not chewed anything she was not supposed to. I have found my shoes in different places than I left them, but it seems she just carries and drops them; no apparent chewing. She'll sleep on a couch if left alone." Interested in adopting?

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!!!

There are many stories we'll never hear behind a face like Carmine's. We just took this big guy in after a very kind person who adopted a dog from us found him abandoned in a dog run near her home. Carmine is around 8 years old, 70 lbs, and his nails were very long when we took him in -- clearly he hadn't been walked or taken to a vet in while. He seemed otherwise in okay shape, and he's a very sweet soul... but within hours after we took him in he started bleeding from his back end. We got him over to the vet right away, and it's looking like he'll need surgery to remove an infected growth in his anus that is estimated to cost $1400. Carmine is in pain and who knows how long this has been going on. This could quite easily be the reason he was abandoned -- because whoever previously owned him didn't want to deal with his health issues as he's aging or couldn't afford it, or both. We're making his surgery appointment this week, and we need your help -- PLEASE DONATE towards Carmine's surgery via the donate tab on our website (live link in our Instagram profile) or via Paypal to [email protected] Senior dogs' veterinary care can sometimes be very costly, but Carmine deserves the very best and will need a forever home soon! He is great with other dogs, walks well on a leash, and is pretty low key at home. Let's get this big boy the love and medical attention he needs.

Happy 1-month Adoptaversary to Lola fka Sasha!!! Her mom emailed this adorable pic with an equally adorable update: "I adopted Lola on August 11th. I had immediately fallen in love with her the moment I saw her on the website. She loves to cuddle, play fetch and even likes to sit on my lap when I read. She already has a fan club at her vet, where I took her last Tuesday for a checkup. Since Lola needs a few more vaccinations, she is not yet making her way to the dog parks and runs. She is the sweetest most energetic pup I have ever met. So happy that she and her sweet heart shaped nose entered my life. As you can tell she has made herself quite at home.

BOOM, nailed it. What a shot. This adorable Collie mix is about 13 weeks old, very smart, a little shy but friendly with everyone, and basically sugarcoated she's so sweet. Panini will probably be in the 30s or 40s weight wise full grown and would be happiest in an active home. Her foster mom says: "Panini is shy at first but after a few days she will bubble up to you. She is very well behaved for a puppy and does not bark. She is house broken and wee wee pad trained. She knows how to come when you call her by her name, knows the command sit, and go potty. Shes also great in a car! Whoever adopts her will be the luckiest person in the world to have such a sweet well behaved little girl." Interested in adopting?

Look who came to visit us recently -- Lola of @lolawawas! We were so honored to have this very cute, very generous little girl stop by, and DAMN how great does this video look? (The full length version is on their website, it's simply too huge to share here.) @lolawawas is a family-run boutique that sells cute pup-themed stuff for animal lovers and their pets, and we are SO GRATEFUL that they donate a portion of the proceeds from their charm of the month club to our veterinary fund every month to help us get our rescue animals the medical attention they so badly need.

Bliss looks uncharacteristically serious here -- about as serious as a dog with ears like that can look, anyway -- but you'll usually see her with a big smile. This 8-month-old Terrier mix is very sweet, happy, loving, and playful. Bliss is good with other animals and learns super fast. She's about 14 lbs almost full grown, and she would do best in an active home. Her foster mom says: "Bliss is the sweetest little puppy! She she still has a lot of really cute puppy qualities but is transitioning into a lovely little lady. She absolutely loves cuddling and she wants to be snuggled by your side all the time. She's super curious about everything and loves exploring and checking things out. She has a lot of energy on our walks and would make a great partner for someone who likes to jog, hike or go on long walks. She had the time of her life in central park exploring all the paths and grassy areas. She really comes alive when she's outside! She's mostly housebroken and knows to do her business when we are outside, there have just been a few times she didn't fully make it through the door first. She's very quiet and doesn't really bark. She loves going up to people on our walks, and is very patient and tolerant when small children come around her and pet her (which is often). She's a little timid around other dogs, but is slowly getting more curious and trying to make doggie friends. You can tell by the way shes always looking in your eyes and checking up on where you are that she's just been waiting for the love and attention of someone her whole life." Interested in adopting?

Armful of adorable up for adoption! Blanche is another new arrival, and this 8-month-old Jack Russell mix has enchanted everyone she's met so far. She's only about 7 lbs, and she's the kind of dog that starts wagging her tail and flips over when you just look at her. She's friendly with everyone, great with other animals, and would do best in an active home. Her foster mom says: "Blanche, our big pile of Terrier mush, has been a joy to foster these past few days. She is a funny little girl. Her most favorite activity is receiving belly rubs. The minute you get close to her she rolls to her side and stares up at you. Her favorite place in the house hands down is her human's bed. She loves to jump up and roll around in joy before settling down for a good nap. In the mornings, the minute you are awake she covers you in kisses. Blanche is slowly becoming a good walker. The outdoors still make her a bit nervous. But she enjoys romping around off leash in an enclosed area. And I am certain you could train her to fetch. She loves to run after a ball but hasn't quite figured out the next step yet. Blanche is a superstar with cats. She has taken to our 4 week old foster kitten and plays with him in the most gentle manner. Blanche is a very happy girl who has a lot of love to give. She would do amazing in a family with kids. She's great with other dogs but does seem a little nervous of big dogs. I know this sweet girl will be adopted in a heartbeat. Who ever gets to go home with her has hit the Terrier jackpot." Interested in adopting?

Mindy'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. Mindy is 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. Mindy 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?

Happy Cat-urday!!!! Yes, we are kind of in denial about this cloudy Monday morning, but yes, we know what day of the week it is. HOWEVER, every day feels like Cat-urday when you've got a new rescue this cute and kitteny!!!! We introduced you to Mushu last week just after we took him in. He had been found abandoned, underweight, and covered in fleas. He did great during his first visit with @firstavenuevethospital and he's doing amazing so far in his really cool foster home with @ainsbury_animal_adventures and her other foster animals. He's only about 5 weeks old so won't be up for adoption for a few weeks, but in the meantime he'll get bigger, stronger, and well socialized with other kitties and doggies!

We had so much fun at the Unicorn Carnival in Coney Island today!!!! Spots here was a little nervous but had a nice afternoon frolicking around the grounds with his doggy buddies. Spots is an 18-month-old off-the-charts handsome Chiweenie. He's about 8 lbs, very smart, great with other animals, well behaved, affectionate, and intuitive and sensitive. You can tell by the way he keeps in physical contact with his foster mom here for reassurance that he's a sweet and gentle boy. We are enamored of him not only because of his good looks but because of his quietly loving, happy soul. Interested in adopting? Submit an application at socialteesnyc.org!

What a stunner! At only 14 weeks old, this girl might already be too gorgeous for her own good. This blue tick coonhound mix is all ears, wiggles, and loving. She's very clever and adventurous, gets along great with everyone, will probably be in the 50s weight wise full grown, and would do best in an active home. Her foster mom says: "Atlanta has made herself right at home with our other two dogs, becoming just one of the pack. She plays nicely with them and loves to sleep near them at night. She rarely has any accidents and lets us know when she needs to go out -- she's super smart! She is very playful, but still likes a good cuddle on the couch from time to time. Whenever strangers see her they can't help but point out how unique her coat is and how adorable she is with those puppy-dog eyes." Interested in adopting?

We often use the word "sweet" when we describe our rescues. Despite how how much we enjoy a good pun, it is actually beyond accurate to use this word first and foremost with regards to this big eared girl... whose name is Sugar. She is about 4 or 5 years old, 12 lbs, wonderful with other dogs, friendly with everyone she meets, she walks great on a leash, and is loving and gentle with kids. She just arrived from the west coast yesterday and is already cozy in her foster home. Her foster mom's entertaining first report from a few hours after arrival: "Sugar is doing very well! We gave her a walk to union square, grabbed pet supplies, and now we are in my apartment. She has yet to use the bathroom and she's had a ton of water. Oh wait. Literally as I said that my daughter just asked what that big yellow spot was on the carpet. So, she has finally peed. Lol. I will write a funny proper description of her once she warms up, but Sugar is as sweet as her name! She does not pull at all on a leash, walks a straight line, and follows your pace. She is friendly to other dogs and has overall great dog manners. She lovvvves a good squishy dog bed and since we have a variety, she's been snuggling into a ball in each one. Sugar is quiet and calm, and gives teeny little kisses. She rolls over onto her back with those eyes that say: just love me forever. So far so good! Everyone was so excited to see the new addition."

...and this little Piglet went wee wee wee, all the way to her forever home today!!!! Her foster mom agreed her new humans were a match made in heaven, and Piglet is the luckiest little girl in the world. Want a little piggy of your own?

It feels like we say this fairly often, but what a long damn day it's been. Had a spay/neuter clinic this morning at 6:30am for 23 animals and welcomed 9 new west coast rescues to NYC shortly after... and so on and so on... Walter, this tiny Chihuahua, is one of our new guys. He is about 7 years old, only 5 lbs, and he has messed up legs. He went straight to @firstavenuevethospital for an exam when he arrived, and the X-rays are out for analysis. Our vet thinks it could be from long term malnutrition, and Walter doesn't seem in immediate pain, but he's seeing a surgeon Monday to determine if there is anything we can do to make this neglected man more comfortable. He gets around okay but can't do a whole lot of moving for now. Mostly he just wants to sit in your lap or lie by your feet on the floor or ride in a bag wherever you go. He's chill, sweet, and good with other animals. He will be the companion of a lifetime for the person who adopts him. Interested? Submit an application at socialteesnyc.org! (Big thanks to his amazing foster mom @ainsbury_animal_adventures for giving him some much needed TLC!) #adoptme #adoptdontshop #chihuahua #chihuahuasofinstagram #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram #accsurvivor #survivor #gooddog #neglected #nyc #nycdog #animalrescue #animallover #love #raisingawareness #savinglives #changetheworld #sweet #cute #bowlegged #socialtees #socialteesnyc #straypride
