ASPCA Research: Is This Cat Feral?

A Salute To Military Working Dogs

On this November 11th, I wanted to say a few words about our Military Working Dogs.  I did not know much myself about this subject until it was brought to my attention back in 2008 while watching ABC World News with Diane Sawyer.  At the end of the program, a website was mentioned where one could go to adopt a retired Military Dog.

Stray Cat Hero Gets Two Thumbs Up!

Time for a little fun and levity! Puss in Boots 3D, a Shrek spinoff, is a real treat for both children and adults.  Donning my 3D glasses last night, I was happily amused, amazed and most of the time, in awe.  This movie begins with Puss in kittenhood, explains how he got his name and explains how this little stray cat became a hero in the end.

Braving Mother Nature to Launch SAVE Pet Fair

Yes, right in time for Halloween, Mother Nature played a Trick on SAVE Animal Shelter this year.  She brought us a nor'easter on October 29, the day of our First Annual Stroll for Strays Dog Walk and Pet Fair.  With no scheduled rain date, the SAVE team and volunteers played a Trick on Mother Nature.  We showed up and staged the event!

9th Annual Halloween Dog Parade a Howling Good Time!

Hi Everyone,

I must admit, I had never gone to a Halloween Dog Parade before.  I saw clips of a New York based parade on TV the day before, but nothing beats "being there!"

Frankie, A Pit Bull Success Story

Hi Everyone,

Since I have been volunteering for SAVE, A Friend to Homeless Animals, I have learned a lot.  Being a cat owner, I am certainly no expert on dogs, and I realize that Pit Bulls get a lot of bad press, and I mean a lot!

Kitty's Story

Kitty was the feral cat I took into my home and domesticated.  Yes, he learned to purr, sit on my lap and enjoy being petted and brushed, snuggle on my shoulder, and curl up in bed at night.  I was extremely patient with him, and we took each day step-by-step.
