About Myles (Fka Tesoro the Tripod)

Adorable, tripod Tresoro (Sweetheart in Italian) is a snuggle bug we pulled from the Town of Heampstead where he was brought in as a stray. Shelter notes from 12/31/17 say "Finder picked up a stray cat. The finder had the cat inside and brought it out to me and put it in my carrier. They said it had a broken leg." There was too much damage to the leg and so the shelter amputated it. This has not stopped Tesoro one bit!

Tesoro, is approximately 2 years old, and 8lbs. He sweet, affectionate, playful and ready to find his perfect forever home.

If you think you can give Tesoro all the love he deserves and would like to meet him, please go to Petstablished.com or follow the link below to complete an application to adopt.

Dillinger. 9 years old. 60lbs.  The story of Dillinger: Dillinger was given to a relative when his owner became too sick to care for him. Although Dillinger had been to the vet sporadically over his lifetime, and was a very loved member of the family, he had not been receiving the special care he needed. Realizing they could not give Dillinger the help he needed, his family posted him on Craig’s List. Although they had the best intentions, pets who are given away can end up being abused or used in illegal activities. After being alerted to this possibility, Dillinger’s family agreed to surrender him into our care. Saving Dillinger: Dillinger’s skin was so inflamed and sore, his fur was falling out, his eyes starting to swell shut, his ears so blocked he was almost deaf, along with constant itching all over his body, we were worried that he may have an incurable immune disorder. We were delighted to learn that he only has food allergies! Now that he is eating a limited ingredient allergy food and receiving extra help from medicated baths and regular ear cleanings, his recovery has been remarkable. Luckily Dillinger should not require a lifetime of special treatment or medication, he just needs to eat a healthy diet. Dillinger in foster: His foster mom says, “Dillinger is such a love. His favorite thing to do is crawl into laps and snuggle. He gives hugs if you’re in a chair! Despite his current state (and he is feeling better each day!), he has a big, curious, silly personality. He’s one of those dogs that makes you laugh every day. If he can’t be with you, he is learning to love his crate and take a nap. He has been wonderful with every dog he has met, of all ages and sizes. Every person that comes to the door is greeted with a wagging tail.” Dillinger would make a perfect addition to any family.” If you think you can give Dillinger all the love he deserves and would like to meet him, please go to Petstablished.com or follow the link below to complete an application to adopt.

Affectionate little Dotsis a beautiful, gentle girl who will make the PURRFECT addition to any family!! She is almost 3 years old and 10lbs. We pulled Dots from Associated Humane Society of Newark. The volunteers had been telling us for months how special this young lady is, how unbelievably affectionate and sweet she is, and how she had been sitting in her cage since October constantly passed over because she is FIV+.  Many people have the impression that a cat with FIV is probably sickly, what a short life expectancy, but that is far from the truth. As many cat-loving people will agree, it’s a condition that is TOTALLY manageable and certainly no reason not to give this very special girl a wonderful home. Contrary to popular belief, it is difficult for a cat to get infected, it really only occurs with deep bite wounds that occur during particularly aggressive fights or through mating. Casual contact such as sharing food bowls, or snuggling is not dangerous, so there is no need to keep Dots in isolation or put her in a home with no other pets. Her “feline immunodeficiency virus” label has already resulted in countless adopters passing her by, we hope that you could be the family she has been waiting for.  After more than 5 months in a tiny cage, Dots is already one step closer to finding her forever home and is doing wonderfully in foster. Her foster mom says that she really is THE SWEETEST!️️ Find out more about FIV + cats at https://www.manhattancats.com/article-archive/infectious-diseases/fiv-the-feline-immunodeficiency-virus/ If you think you can give Dots 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.

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.

Mellow Mochi is a sweet little guy who is looking for a home with his best good friend, Winter. At around 2 years old and about 12-14lbs, Mochi is an absolute sweetheart with a lot of love to give. Handsome Mochi was originally found as a stray, then brought to the Newark Shelter, then went into a foster home when we pulled him.  We placed him and another cat from Newark (named Winter) into a foster home together (since the foster was willing to take two cats), and the two fell in love! Mochi is the more mellow of the two, but he loves to chase stuffed toys and is always available to cuddle (and prefers to have his nap buddy, Winter). Mochi is an extremely affectionate and social cat who would do well in any home! See more pictures and learn more about Mochi’s story on our instagram pages @shelterchic and @shelterchicanimals.

**Shelter Chic only adopts in the NY & NJ area. Shy girl Reina is a spayed, 2 year old Lilac-Point lady weighting approximately 10 pounds. She was surrendered to the city shelter by her owner when she decided to start traveling. Reina was surrendered along with her house mates, a dog and another cat. Reina had been living in that home since she was 8 weeks old, so she is understandably confused and a little uncertain. Luckily her new foster family is taking wonderful care of her and she is starting to come out of her shell showing what a sweet, happy girl she really is. She loves cuddling with her foster mom and enjoys sleeping right by her side. Reina is a mellow girl with gorgeous blue eyes who enjoys affection and would do well in any home! Her foster mom says: “Reina may seem timid at first but if you but once she has dubbed you as one of her people, she will shower you in affection. She loves to nuzzle and cuddle and curl up next to her person. She’s not looking for a playmate so it’s probably best if she’s the only cat in your home. Or maybe a mellow cat who’s happy to chill and give her her space.” Please note that her former owner reported that Reina does scratch at furniture even when provided a scratch post and she hates having her nails cut. Despite the fact that Reina used to live with other animals she does not seem at ease with the cat she is being fostered with, despite him being very sweet and friendly, because of this we recommend Reina goes to a home without other pets.

Stella. 10 months old. 55lbs. Black Mouth Cur Mix The story of Stella: Stella came to us when we got an urgent plea from a good Samaritan to take a dog belonging to an estranged relative. This poor pup was being kept in a back room, chained to an old broken mattress, with no food or water for an unknown period of time. Being a large, energetic puppy, she was often difficult to handle, but rather than trying to train her, Stella had been beaten when she made mistakes. She was one of the saddest and most depressing examples of neglect we had ever seen.  Saving Stella: The most urgent issue for Stella was giving her the nutrition her body desperately needed. Although it would be tempting to give a starving dog as much food as they can eat, it was important to strictly regulated and measured her food to avoid further health complications.  Sadly, when Stella started to feel stronger and more energetic, it was clear that she had suffered more than we knew. By locking her away, her family had robbed her of many crucial life experiences and exposure milestones that every dog needs to become a confident and happy adult. Although she was safe, Stella was still a tiny, confused and scared puppy in a big powerful body. Stella did not understand that she was not meant to walk across the dinner table, she did not believe that no one was going to use her leash to beat her, she could not trust that it was ok to move away from situations that overwhelmed her. Realizing that Stella needed expert help, we were lucky enough to get her a temporary place in a boarding and training facility where Stella has made amazing progress. She is learning how to enjoy being outside, walk on a leash, be around other dogs, basic commands and impulse control. We are now searching for the perfect foster home for Stella to learn how to live in a home. Stella in training: Stella’s trainer says, “While we still see the occasional unwanted behavior, it's more playful and quickly squashed. She is doing well - really has the cue down for fetch and tug, and knows ‘Mine’ for not grabbing toys when I pick them up.  She wears a head collar pretty well, though still with the occasional tantrum. Doing great with dog play, and chooses avoidance when she can, which is a great trait to have.” Stella’s Canine Care Team say, “Stella is having a great time at camp! She is always curious about new smells and enjoys the company of her human friends. She loves to run when she's in the big yard and enjoy the tranquil sounds at times. Stella is such a beauty and we love having her here at camp. She's got personality and energy for miles and thats one of our favorite things about her. Stella has so much personality; she is silly, full of so much excitement and energy. She also can be super sweet and whenever she sees you coming toward her, her butt just wont stop wiggling!  If you think you can give Stella 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.

Tony. 3 years old. 65lbs. Staffordshire Terrier Mix The story of Tony: Tony was found as a stray and taken to the city shelter where he waited for 3 months hoping someone would take him home. Unfortunately, Tony was only able to use 3 of his legs, he was constantly having an upset stomach which was causing him to lose weight at an alarming rate and he had 2 concerning lumps near his tail. Tony had a similar look and happy go lucky personality to lots of other dogs in the shelter, so his obvious need for serious health care meant he was repeatedly overlooked. Saving Tony: Tony has been to several vets, each hoping they could pinpoint exactly what was wrong with him. After a few surgeries and lots of tests, we think we now have the answers we’ve been looking for. Tony has Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which is now being managed with a high calorie prescription food which is helping him to gain weight. His lumps were discovered to be hernias probably caused by his stomach issues. Tony has had one hernia operation and is getting ready for his second. His back leg was discovered to have nerve damage, probably caused by an old injury. Although we cannot repair this damage, Tony is having physical therapy to help his body grow stronger and teach him how to favor his other 3 legs. Tony needed a lot of extra medical care but he has remained a sweet, lovable goofball throughout his treatment and recovery. Tony in foster: Tony is receiving lots of love and care in his foster home. He is a curious pup, but he’s very good at listening, likes to learn new tricks and is VERY food motivated. He is slowly gaining weight and really enjoys extra treats which he always deserves. He can be very agile for a dog with only 3 good legs and has been known to climb on furniture that he physically should not be able to! He loves belly rubs and extra hugs. He has some wonderful doggy and kitty friends, but needs a slow introduction. Although he does not have the full mobility that some other dogs have, Tony can still run and play, and would love to be part of a fun active family.

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.
