Hurricane Sandy survivors seek forever homes
One year later, people in communities devastated by Hurricane Sandy are continuing to rebuild their lives. And so are animals impacted by the storm. Four dogs and one cat—three of them rescued by Best Friends during the hurricane—have been waiting for new homes for too long. So their friends at Best Friends—New York are reaching out to Best Friends members.
Can you help?
Tank’s whole body wags with joy when a friendly person comes near. This sweet, adorable American Staffordshire-mix adores attention, walks and car rides. He’s not good with many small dogs, but can be fine with larger canine companions. Tank was pulled from a NYC shelter in the nick of time just a few months after the hurricane. Tan with white markings, his soulful eyes are set off by a stripe down the middle of his face. He’s three years old, healthy, neutered, and up-to-date on shots.
Theory loves cuddling on the couch and taking walks. This beautiful, velvet soft, brindle pit bull terrier is three years old, healthy, neutered, up-to-date on shots, and housetrained. It takes him some time to trust new people, but then he’ll be your friend for life! He’d be happiest with a person or couple who believe in positive reinforcement. And he’d be fine living with another calm dog and/or a dog-savvy cat.
Tootsie is a cute, playful shepherd-mix who loves to run and play fetch. She’ll make a great companion for an active person or family who want to take her along on walks, runs or outings. Tootsie is two or three years old, about 30 lbs., healthy, spayed and up-to-date on shots. She isn’t good with other animals, so would prefer to be your only pampered princess.
Zeus is an exquisite grey pit bull who turns heads wherever he goes. This sweet, big boy enjoys going on hikes and jogs with you. He’s also a smart, eager-to-learn student, who loves one-on-one interaction. After being abandoned, he needs a patient, confident person who can teach him to trust again. Zeus is about four years old, healthy, neutered and up-to-date on his shots. He’d be happiest as an only pet.
Tina is an affectionate cat who is looking for an empty lap to warm. She gets along well with other kitties and adores people. Tina was pulled from a shelter during the hurricane, and has suffered severe eye infections that left her visually-impaired. But that doesn’t prevent her from getting around or using the litter box, just like any other cat. Tina is about five years old, healthy, spayed and up-to-date on shots.
If you or someone you know can offer any of these deserving pets a good home, please contact Tammy firstname.lastname@example.org. She’d be thrilled to hear from you and delighted to set up a “meet and greet” with the pet of your choice. You can also help spread the word by printing out and posting this message or forwarding this email to your animal-loving friends and family.
Thank you for anything you can do to help Tank, Theory, Tootsie, Zeus and Tina. Together, we can Save Them All™.
