Pet Adoption

Can you provide a safe and permanent home for a furry-friend? Millions of dogs and cats are euthanized each year in the US because they are homeless. Adopting instead of buying a pet will save a life. These abandoned and neglected animals need your help right now.

The NCSPCA adoption database is dedicated to creating a community where adoptable animals will be placed in loving homes. All animals adopted from NCSPCA are evaluated and cleared before becoming available for adoption. WE also require a completed application and background check before animals are placed in a new home.

Local town shelters have both purebreds and one-of-a-kinds, and their staff will find the perfect match for you and your family. We urge you to visit them!

Playful

 

Sweet Pea is a lovely 4 yr old female Rottweiler with excellent conformation and markings. Sweet Pea was rescued from a breeding kennel after her owner died. Sweet Pea is very affectionate and playful. She is currently in a foster home with dogs, cats and kids. We think Sweet Pea's ideal home would be with a quiet calm single person or couple and another large dog (preferably male). Cats or small pets would also be fine, active noisy children might overwhelm her. Spayed/Neutered Up-to-date with routine shots  House trained  Prefers a home without: young children For more information about Sweat Pea or to adopt please email MCM Rottweiler Rescue kissdjj@optonline.net

Friendly and Charming

 

Dylan is a 2 year old Pit Bull, he is friendly, charming, gets along with other dogs. Needs some training walking and taking treats (he can be a bit grabby) and we are working on that.

Chico Wants Your Love

Chico's person had saved Chico only to find out months later she was accepted into a training program w/the marines.  She thought she found him a home, left for training, only to get a stress fracture and return home - but to her mother’s home as she had given up her apt.  Turns out the home she thought she found for Chico did not work out and she had nowhere to take him to, so she put him in boarding, he has been there now for 6 months or more and has been deteriorating due to such an upheaval and going from one home to another. While he was with his person, he went hiking, swimming - got lots of exercise and was a loving sweet boy.  He is only 2 years old now and his person is in debt, and can no longer afford to keep him in boarding. 

Chico needs a home if you will open your heart and home please contact Bob Sowers  516-THE-SPCA

 





Chance

Chance was found in south Hempstead, horribly beat up in the face and neck; it was clear that he had been used as a ’bait” dog by whomever had him. We named him Chance as we hoped he would have another “chance” at a decent life. He was held at the Freeport Humane Society but due to some issues created by his horrific past, adoption was not happening any time soon. Finally one of the Freeport volunteers who always had a soft spot for him decided to bring him home. With the love and patience of his new owners and the expert assistance of Steve DiTiullio of forpawzdogtraining.com, Chance has an excellent opportunity to have a happy ending.










Cleo

Update on Cleo- She had her surgery and is at home doing fine. Thanks again to those who helped us make it possible.

 
It is with the utmost pleasure that we are happy to announce that Cleo has been adopted and is now in a very loving home. It has only been a few weeks but our reports are that she is doing well and with continued re-enforcement she will continue to prosper. A special thanks to Christine and Dori for getting the Nassau County SPCA involved in Cleo's plight; the author loves all dogs, but anything concerning "rotties always commands special attention". This newsletter is about a special individual who went the extra "yard" to work with Cleo and correct some of the issues that would have hindered her having a successful placement in a new home. Those of us who met Cleo and saw her potential, owe eternal gratitude to Steve DiTullio, owner of "forpawzdogtraining.com", who at his own expense and time traveled the distance to work with Cleo. I met Cleo only once, but having dealt extensively with 'rotties",I saw some something in her and Steve has brought it out; Steve did the screening of potential adopters and made the final choice; he knows Cleo better than anyone and we're confident in his choice. God Bless you Steve. The Nassau County SPCA will be overseeing Cleo's spaying and teeth cleaning and we take this opportunity to thank all of you who have helped us in this endeavor and for your continued support.
