About Layla

At only one year old, and approximately 15lb, little Layla has had a rough beginning to her life, yet somehow, this plucky little girl has not let it get her down. She is still sweet, friendly, playful and loving.

Tiny Layla was found as stray in appalling condition, her skin was raw, she had almost no fur and she was obviously very uncomfortable. After weeks of tests and trying various medicines, we got the awful news that Layla was suffering from a rare skin disease. Klebsiella is an often drug-resistance bacteria which in Layla’s case has been coupled with a Staphylococcus infection. Because Layla’s immune system is so weak she has been unable to fight it off herself. We now have Layla on new course of medicine and bathing routine. We know that with the never ending love and support of her foster mom, Layla will be ready to go to her forever home in no time.

Unfortunately we cannot tell if Layla will relapse or have more skin infections in the future. This may be a one time occurrence, but she could have seasonal or year-round allergies and she may get more skin infections through her lifetime.

Layla is looking for an active family who wants to take her to the park, play games, go for long walks and have fun training her. She is not lap dog that only wants to snuggle...although she does love to snuggle!

You cannot get much better than this Ace in the pack. Ace is around 8-10 years old, and 55lbs. Although he does the most amazing Elvis impression with his lip, his foster mom has endearingly nicknamed him Grandpa. Super social and happy when he’s out and about, but more than happy to spend the day napping in his favorite armchair once he gets back home. Ace is a DREAMBOAT who we pulled from the NYC city shelter. A volunteer writes: I finally got my chance to meet Ace, a handsome and elegant gentleman, all dressed in black. I do not know if he reminds me of a knight or his ebony steed. He knew why I was at his door and in no time, we found ourselves in the street. Ace seems very housetrained. He is a steady walker, a good sitter at the lights, respectful of birds and other dogs met. I know that in our playgroups, he is polite with his peers, males and females. He enjoys his time, leash free in the yard where he poses like a star for pictures. Indeed, Ace seems naturally all dressed up for a fancy gathering and can not take a bad shot! Ace is quite dreamy here at the care center. He is polite, compliant, wags his tail, always but his thoughts are somewhere else. I am sure you know where. A home sweet home, the love of a family, that is what his heart is after. Although Ace shows no signs of a current injury, he is particularly sensitive to having his back legs touched. We believe this is due to some kind of physical or emotional trauma he experienced in the past. Because of this, Ace does not like to be examined or touched in that area by someone who he considers to be a stranger. However, once Ace comes to fully trust you, his anxiety about this disappears. Ace is looking for a dog savvy owner, who has the knowledge, patience and understanding to help him overcome his past and make his time with strangers and at the vet less worrisome for him. This can be achieved with positive training methods using high value treats and repetition. Ace cannot be placed in a home with children or other pets.

Adorable, senior girl Chatrlotte, is around 12 years old and about 40lbs. Charlotte is a loving, happy-go-lucky lady who adores all people, gets on well with dogs and is even happy living with cats! She still loves to gallop around with her doggie pals, she might even bring you back the ball if you’re lucky, but she is always available to snuggle in a blanket and take a nap on the couch. Sweet Charlotte was originally adopted from Newark Associated Humane Societies in 2009 when she was a still practically a puppy at 3 years old. After 9 years of love and devotion, poor Charlotte ended up back at city pound when her family decided they could not care for her when she needed her most. Charlotte was the happiest dog when she walked back through those doors, just happy to go for a walk with her family. She did not realize that they would be going home without her. All the staff at the shelter were heartbroken to watch her wait by the door for their return, and they reached out to other rescues to get her back in a home as soon as possible. Charlotte is having a wonderful time in her new foster home, and she is wagging her tail once again. Her foster mom says "Charlotte is a wonderful, sweet old lady who acts years younger than she is. She has an adorable personality and a lot of spunk in her step. She loves all people and other animals (she wants to play with every single dog she meets). She does well with dogs and cats. We have not seen her interact with small children, but she ignores them when walking on the street. She is a snuggle bug who loves company and would love to be in a home where her people and/or other animals are home regularly to snuggle and play with her. She does well on car rides and is good on leash. She is the perfect pup and needs her perfect forever home to live the rest of her life in.” Charlotte has been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease but is responding extremely well to a prescription diet (just Hill's Science Diet k/d formula). She is fully housetrained, but does need the opportunity to relieve herself a bit more than many adult dogs (typically every 5-6 hours, though she does usually make it through the full night) due to her kidney disease. She will let you know when she needs to go to the bathroom if you pay attention to her cues. She also has a few lumps and bumps but they have all been tested and are nothing to worry about.

Adorable Claudine, is around 10 years old and about 10lbs. Claudine is a sweet lady who adores all people, gets on well with dogs and is so low energy, she would be fine around cats. Her foster mom say, “Describing Claudine’s routine would literally go something like this : Waking up whenever you do, doing her business outside, eating her food with passion, and going back to sleep until it's time to do her business again a few hours later, then going back to sleep then waking up again to eat, do her business outside on a brief walk, and… Yes you guessed it, sleep again ! She’s not into long walks even if she seems to enjoy it. She also has done great using pads in the house and finds her way to it. Her favorite thing is really to be in her own little bed and sleep there. It’s almost like she wants to make sure it’s always here for her to enjoy. She doesn’t play with my two other big dogs despite their numerous desperate attempts her to get her to play which is the cutest thing ever to watch and she’s not at all scared of them and never reacts to them. I’m pretty sure she loves them in her very reserved way. She is a GREAT cuddler and will be very happy at night if you have her joining you on the couch but she’s not demanding at all except when you get up or go back home which is when she will look for you to give you kisses, resting her little paws on your knees to reach out to your face :) Claudine is a discreet and quiet little flower, always bringing happiness in your life in a very sweet way :)” Claudine has mammary tumors as a result of her not being spayed. Unfortunately it is impossible for us to accurately determine if these are currently cancerous. In our experience, removing cancerous lumps on very senior dogs does not prolong their life sufficiently enough to under go such a high risk surgery or the discomfort of recovery. Since the cancer causing hormones are already present in her system and causing lumps, there is no easy treatment to give her. We are therefore treating Claudine as if she does have cancer and simply giving her the best life possible. Claudine also has limited vision.

Sweet as sugar, our own little Cupcake. She is around 7-9 years old, and 15lbs. She is sweet little girl who loves to be cuddled, take lap naps or curl up on the couch to watch a movie with you. She can be a little shy at times and would not do well in a home with small children. Tiny Cupcake was surrendered to the shelter in horrible condition. Her teeth had been terribly neglected, she had a nasty cold and her skin was flaky and itchy from poor nutrition. She seemed so scared and depressed at the city shelters, she wouldn’t even lift her head. Thankfully, after just a few day in her foster home, she has come out of her shell tremendously and is feeling so better. She is a quiet but curious girl and likes to explore the house on her own. She is being fostered with other dogs of various sizes and gets along well with them all. Cupcake is deaf and she relies on other dogs to guide and comfort her, therefore Cupcake MUST go to a home with one or more low energy, friendly dogs.

Meet Harley is an adorable tiny gentleman, born on April 29th, with his brother Mikey. They are both the sweetest little things, dog friendly, and very bonded. They love getting to know people and other cats and dogs, love to eat...and love to yell at you when it's time to eat! The brothers LOVE to play and are very high energy. Both boys are healthy and ready to go to their forever home. Preference will be given to adopters interested in adopting them both. They would ideally go to a new home together, but if separated, they must each go to a home with another playful cat.

Meet Lucy, she is around 6 years old and 30lbs. Lucy is a sweet girl looking for an active family who has time to continue her training and provide her with all the exercise she needs. Lucy loves to run and would do well in a home with a yard for her to frolic in or someone who enjoys long walks, frequently goes hiking and on daily runs. She also enjoys swimming. She loves to play with toys, enjoys chewing on large branches and sunbathing. Lucy would thrive in a home with experienced dog owners who have no other dogs, or only very submissive dogs. Lucy is an anxious young lady, and occasionally that leads her to make some bad decisions. However, Lucy is happy when she is on a good schedule, with a family who understands the importance of doggie rules. Lucy doesn’t want to deal with the pressures of being leader of the pack, it makes her nervous, but if she has to take over, she will! Lucy is house trained, has an incredible amount of love to give, and always has time for a cuddle. Lucy has more energy than the typical 6 year old pooch, and will need physical and mental exercise to keep her happy. Lucy currently takes medication to help with her anxiety. By consulting with your vet or taking her to see an animal behaviorist, you may be able to find other ways to help her control her anxious side. Lucy also has IBD (Irritable Bowel Disorder) which means she can only eat prescription dog food, and although she cannot have table scraps, she is a big fan of carrots and lettuce! Lucy’s anxiety means she can be easily startled, especially when sleeping. Lucy was recently surprised by her baby brother which resulted in her snapping at him. Although the bite was superficial, we advise that Lucy not be around young children or children who can not be responsible around this little lady. If you think you can give Lucy all the love she deserves and would like to meet her, please go to Petstablished.com or follow the link below to complete an application to adopt. https://petstablished.com/pets/public/341335 ***This is a courtesy listing.

At around 1 year old, Raven is an adorable, cuddle baby with tons of energy. She's a goofy character with beautiful markings. She loves playing with her fish on a string, and has learned how to toss around tinfoil recently. After tiring herself out, Raven loves to sleep on your belly, chest, or wrapped around your head. She was rescued from the streets and can take a little time to get used to new people but isn't shy and responds wonderfully to affection (and lots of attention). Raven is a very high energy, frisky, active cat and will get herself into mischief if you can't provide her with lots of fun things to do. Raven has a mild case of stomatitis, which means her dental health is important. However, like all pets, a balanced diet of quality food and regular teeth brushing, is keeping her mouth in great shape.

Happy little Torro, is around 12 months old and a skinny 3lbs. Torro is a VERY friendly young man, who had a rough start, but is so grateful to be safe and warm, he just cannot stop showing how happy he is. He loves to curl up with you and will happily fall asleep in your arms. He is a purring machine, still very much a kitten and incredibly affectionate. He loves to cuddle, play and be loved - he is just the perfect cat for everyone. Ideally, Torro will be placed in a home with another playful kitten. He is currently best friends with our kitten, Harley, who is also available for adoption. Torro was found in the stairwell of a building, skinny, with a mouthful of ulcers. He was taken to the city shelter where they decided he was about 15 YEARS old and immediately put on the euthanasia list. Thankfully, one of our kind volunteers discovered him and we were able to save him just in time. After spending some time with him, it was clear Torro was actually a kitten who just needed some TLC. Now he is feeling much better and enjoying life being a pampered cat. Torro is a sweet little guy who would do well in any home, but he is very playful and young children should be aware that sometimes cats scratch when they are playing.

Meet cute little Winifred, you can call her Winnie or Wednesday or Winnipeg. She is a tiny cat with big personality. Winnie is less than 18 months old, but she’s already had at least one litter of kittens. Formerly a feral little girl, Winnie was originally spayed with the idea that she would be released back in the area she was trapped, which is why she is rocking that clipped ear. Winnie had often been found scrounging for food and trying to start her own street gang by a friend of Shelter Chic’s. Although she was a diamond in rough, this kind Samaritan trapped her and paid for all the vet expenses out of her own pocket. When Winnie was well enough to return to her old life, our dear friend thought maybe she would give Winnie the choice to see if she would prefer a fresh start as a pampered kitty. Most feral cats have a very hard time making the transition but sweet little Winnie become a house cat almost immediately! She is a smart girl who knows a good opportunity when she sees one ; ) She now loves being inside, and being around other cats. She's is still not a big fan of being held, but she is happy to be around people...especially when they have food. She loves to grab food out of your hands (or swat it down to her level), particularly chicken, and will sleep near your head on the back of the couch when you’re watching tv. She would do best in a home with another cat as she loves curling up next to others, and needs someone who has the patience to work with her on becoming more comfortable with people. She is also good with dogs - well certainly not intimidated by them! She has no problem getting into their face and trying to steal food when they are getting a burger or chicken as a special treat. She is very food motivated, which is very helpful to teach her to be more relaxed around people. She will always be the first to check out what everyone is eating. Winnie is looking for an experienced cat owner or someone who has other cats and is not looking for a snuggle buddy. Although friendly and keen to be around you, she does not want to cuddle and if that works for you, she will be a great addition to your family, plus she is super stinking cute. :) If you think you can give Winnie all the love she deserves and would like to meet her, please go to Petstablished.com or follow the link below to complete an application to adopt.
