About Minka

**UPDATE** We’re looking for a long term, forever fospice home for sweet Minka!! When we pulled this girl from the nyc acc shelter back in October, we thought Minka’s congestive heart failure was going to take its toll rather rapidly... BUT THIS LITTLE FIGHTER HAS DEFIED ALL ODDS  Minka is responding extremely well to medication, has gained three pounds and has sprouted into the happiest little girl. One of the most dedicated fosters Terry stepped in to take Minka and give her the best days (at first Minka was sleeping most of the time and not feeling her best). But after some medication and a little TLC, now Minka’s happy little personality has emerged and this fantastic girl says she still has a lot left to do on her bucketlist  The doctors say that while she does have congestive heart failure, her prognosis is anywhere from 6 months to one, or even two years. As happy as she is in Terry’s home, we would love for Minka to be in a forever home (or long term fospice) so that Terry can continue taking in multiple foster animals and saving more lives. Terry says: “She's the happiest little dog. When she hears my voice, she does this little head tilt and her tail starts wagging. And then I get close enough it goes a mile a minute and then she flips over for some good old fashioned belly rubs. She's a super sweet cuddler who doesn't mind being held like a baby and will rest against your chest or your shoulder. Her fave thing in the whole world is food. she loves loves loves to eat. She's very mellow, not a barker, and snoozes most of the day away. She's independent too, getting around on her own. She is housebroken to use wee wee pads but if you want to take her outside shell go there too. She can walk on a leash if you have a lot of patience and are down for a slow stroll. Truly nothing seems to bother her, she just wants a full belly, a snuggle and a place to crash.” Minka is FABULOUS with other dogs and cats. 

Adorable Minka is 9 years old and 10lbs. She is a complete heart stealer and no one who meets her can help but fall in love.

Minka was found as a stray, she is blind and has congestive heart failure, but she is not letting that get her down. Minka is enjoying life in a loving foster home but would really love a forever home of her own. She gets along wonderfully with other dogs and even cats!

If you think you can give Minka 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.

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. See more pictures and learn more about Ace’s story on our instagram pages @shelterchic and @shelterchicanimals.

Celine Dion is an adorable, mini girl, at around 35 lbs and approximately 1 year old, who has seen some hard times in her short life. Found as a stray, Celine was taken to city shelter with a terrible cold. Weak and malnourished, it took her almost a month to recover the strength to be put up for a adoption. She joined the Shelter Chic family with an ear infection and some itchy skin, but ready to start a new chapter in her life. Celine is an absolutely cuddle bug, she adores being with people and loves to snuggle on the couch to watch TV with you. She also loves to play, run and is eager to learn new tricks. Celine would benefit from some basic training classes and practice meeting new dogs. At the moment she is shy and unsure of herself and although she did wonderfully with her official dog test, occasionally she gets nervous when meeting new dogs. However, Celine is getting better every day and with the right introduction she can do great with other dogs. Celine is adjusting well to living in the city, but would ultimately be happier living in the suburbs with a yard of her own. Celine would be happiest in a home where she is the only pet. She is not a good match to a home with cats. See more pictures and learn more about Celine’s story on our instagram pages @shelterchic and @shelterchicanimals.

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.

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.

Sweet Muneco is a white haired little doll that we believe is a poodle mix. He is around 5 years old, and 10lbs. Muneco is a fun loving pup who gets on well with dogs of all sizes and cats. He is a sweet loving pup, who enjoys having zoomies in his apartment after his walks, snuggling and then having a nap. He likes to curl up next to you at night and enjoys bellys rubs. We believe Muneco was purchased from a pet store that had its animals provided by a puppy mill, as he is too young to have the health issues he does. Muneco’s owners took him to the vet in July after he had lost most of his fur, and was very itchy. He was shaking, with conjunctivitis in both eyes, and appeared to be very lethargic. He was only fed table scraps and was not receiving the proper nutrients that all dogs need, nor was he receiving any vet care. When the owner was informed that Muneco was diabetic and anemic, with an issue with his thyroid, the owner decided she no longer wanted him. Despite her vet giving her his medication for free, she surrendered him to the local city shelter. Muneco has had a tough start in life, but now he is receiving a balanced diet, insulin injections twice daily, and medication for his thyroid, he is making a wonderful come back. We believe Muneco has limited vision, due to having cataracts, a side effect of his diabetes. Muneco also has a slight heart murmur. Although Muneco does need a little more medical attention than the average pup, his medication makes him act and feel just like every other healthy dog on the block! See more pictures and learn more about Muneco’s story on our instagram pages @shelterchic and @shelterchicanimals.

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.

Sweet little Sophie is a tiny terrier mix looking for a fun loving retirement home. Sophie is around 11 years old, and 10lbs. Despite her fabulous ears and cute little snuzzle, Sophie was surrendered by her elderly owners. After a lifetime of love and loyalty, they could not care for her when she began to show the normal signs of aging. Sophie LOVES, LOVES, LOVES people, although at her age, young children maybe too much for her to handle. She is GREAT with other dogs, really enjoys playing with them but is not very interested in toys, never jumps, does not chew things and she likes to talk to you. She enjoys going for walks but occasionally has tiny accidents in the house. She is energetic for her age but does not like stairs, so needs to be with someone who can carry her when her little legs get tired.

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.
