Happy Tails – Our Best Friends Rescue

Happy Tails


Barkley was a stray in upstate NY! We found a foster for him and he was safe! Now he has a home of his very own and is loved forever! He actually jumped in the truck and gave his new dad a big kiss!
They know when they’ve found the pawfect hooman ❤ Thanks to everyone who stepped up to help this guy!
We are so blessed to have such a great chapter of the rescue in upstate N.Y.


Micah was a product of horrible breeding practices and because of that the soft spot on his skull never closed. He needed a new place where his former mom felt he would get the attention and love he needed.
Alyssa Buschman fostered him and with her help the best possible home has been found 🥰 You are gonna wrap your new momm


Oliver aka Ollie has left the building! From living tied to a shed in Texas for years, having his eye rupture and being totally neglected to a life of love and luxury ❤
You are the best boi! You take a piece of my heart with you little man.

Peppa Pig

Our beautiful Pepper aka Peppa Pig has officially been adopted! When she arrived she was in horrible shape! She was high heartworm positive and suffering horribly with demodectic mange. She had not been started on HW treatment yet and was misdiagnosed woth skin allergies.
Our amazing vets Grady Animal Hospital got her on course for everything and she’s been improving daily ever since. Once she was posted as for adoption we didn’t really think very many people would step up to give her the loving home she deserved, but to our amazement a wonderful woman did! She will now have the life and care she was denied in South Carolina.
Thanks to everyone who helped to get her where she needed to be! There is no question that each dog that comes to Our Best Friends Rescue will get the care and love that they need to blossom. ❤
I will definitely miss you Pep! You are just the sweetest girl I’ve ever met.


What a great way to start our day! Happy Tails to our sweet Mazie and the always wonderful and beautiful Rebecca Nadine ❤
We always want the pawfect home for our pups and this is it!!!!!!!
I’m so thankful to know that our precious little beagle bagel squishy girl will be adored and cared for by this amazing family! Love you all Our Best Friends Rescue


Happy Tails Saturday! Look at Jojo with her new mom, dad and hooman sister! And her handsome as all get out brofur Merlin! 😍
From a TX stray to life on the farm! She’s come so far and will have the best life ever now 💜 Love you precious girl.


Okay so this ones a super Happy Tail! Champ was in NYACC and was deemed rescue only for being a bit nippy. We pulled Champ because he was just such a cutie and Jack Russell Terriers don’t get a lot of rescue attention in NY.
Wow are we glad we did!!!! This little guy is so incredibly sweet and just an all around sweetheart. He has some limited vision in one eye so if approached on that side he would get frightened and mouth but no biting at all! Then we got a wonderful application for him and today he had a meet and greet with 3 of his new furblings!!!!! Well it was love all around and now Champ has a wonderful home where he will be adored forever!
Way to go Champ! Thanks to Stacey Ann for helping vet his applications and talking to the humans.


Sorry this one is a bit late but here’s another Happy Tail! Pierre fka Pietro lost his mom and his hoomon sister wasn’t able to take care of him so she asked us to help her. Pierre is a tiny bit of cuteness and The wonderful Kelly Greene graciously offered to foster him.
We all fell in love with this little peanut and Stacey Ann stepped up to go through the 100’s of applicants we had for him. When the perfect family came along we set up the meet and greet and he met everyone including his new sisfur Ruby!
It was a big love fest! Pierre is now living the life and will never have a worry in the world again ❤ Happy Tails tiny man! You chose very wisely!


When we pulled Junior from NYACC we never thought he would leave his foster mom. This sweet senior boy is very old, around 14 or 15 and blind, probably partially deaf as well. We posted him on all the usual sites but there was little to no interest and those who did ask about him did not have a fenced yard.
Junior LOVES to walk around outside and actually get po’d if you don’t give him lots of outdoor time. Then one day, recently, we received an inquiry for him. We went through the motions of replying with an application and didn’t really expect much to come of it. But then we got the application back. i looked it over and forwarded it to his foster momma. We were excited but reluctant that it was real! And then the process started. After a week of checking out everything his foster took him out to his home check/meet and greet and well, here are his happy tails pics! Junior, you are so loved and will have your very own big fenced yard to explore and call your own.
Supreme Happy Tails sweet boy. You truly are a wonderful little guy and your foster mom was ugly crying when she left. But this is what rescue and fostering is all about!


Happy Tails Butter!
I’m so thankful we could find both our special needs mill pups pawfect homes!
Congratulations to his very special and wonderful momma and daddy.
He will live a long happy life of love 💘


What a great way to start a Saturday!!!!!
Happy Tails Sammy Boy!!!! From death row to love forever and ever!!!!! There is always a pawfect home for these little angels and this is Sammy’s <3
Thank you Lorraine Moore Lincoln for reaching out and helping to get him where he belongs. You are an angel 😇


Happy Tails to our precious little girl.
Born a double merle in an Amish puppy mill with the genetic defect that plagues bad breeding, causing these little babies to be born blind and deaf, this little one has a bit of vision in one eye. But trust us, that didn’t stop her one bit! She’s a little ball of fire. These puppies are strong and healthy and have so much joy! The know nothing about a disability. They are normal in their opinion.
Many thanks to her new Momma Linda Bott and Daddy, Steve Bott for opening your hearts to her after the loss of our precious Ozzie. She will give you love and joy for many years to come. Thanks to everyone who helped make this save possible ❤
We are blessed to have you there for us when these guys need to hitch a ride.


Happy Tails Murphy!!!!!
From the euth list to a new home! Murphy was abused by his previous family. They obviously never had a corgi before him and didn’t know their quirks and personalities. Corgis are not fluffy little lap dogs and need a home where their people understand them. Murphy, the tricolor boy, has been nothing but wonderful here, other than being a real “talker” 😛
He now has a sisfur named Penelope and a mom and dad who understand corgi speak. With love and patience and guidance he will thrive and have a wonderful life.
Thanks to Paula Warner for trusting us and coming to us for her next corgo. She and her husband adopted a beautiful senior girl, Rita, from us years back ho had spent her life in a mill. I couldn’t think of a better home for this handsome boy.


And here’s Tony!!!!! Happy tails you adorable little guy! Your journey started when you were left behind in TX for a while. Then Ilana Stone asked if I would take you and another pup and how could I say no to this handsome boy! You get long walks every day, have lots of fur cousins, get constant loving from your mommas and now my little boy you have a wonderful life!
Thanks to Judy Sven for fostering for us, AGAIN! LOL I know this guy gave you a run (literally) for you money ❤


Oh little Baby Leo! You were definitely a different dog when you arrived in rescue. But now, HAPPY TAILS little man! You learned how to get along with others and how to not be such a bossy boy! You just wanted to be a good boy from the start!
Well, after tasting a little of my flesh 😛 Thank you to everyone who took part in this little ruffians rehab. He just needed confidence and a peaceful atmosphere. Now he will have the best life and no more worries. I love you Leo! You took a piece of my heart with you when you left. ❤
Thanks to @Jennifer Jablow , Kelly Greene and Kim Caruana for all your help with this little nut!


And this is a wonderful Happy Tail! But then again, they all are! Petra aka Odessa, has found her furever home!
This little beauty was surrendered because people are dumb. She was put out on a rescue only plea because she bit a rubber hand. Now she has a little girl of her very own and will be safe and loved for all time. Thank goodness she bypassed my house! I don’t think I could have ever let her go!!!!!!!
Many thanks to Tracy Snell for springing her from jail in Rochester and finding her the pawfect home. ❤

Wade Garrett

Happy Tails to our precious and special Wade Garrett! This little boy was rescued from NYACC. He has a lot of medical stuff going on but that never means that a pup doesn’t deserve a home and love for the rest of his days.
Wade is adored by his mom and dad and even has his own driver for vet appointments and the like. Wade, you are one of a kind, but that’s a Peke for ya! I love every inch of you little man!
We are blessed with the best adopters ever!!!!!
Thank you Kim Caruana for helping out with this gorgeous pup! He really deserves the best life has to offer and he’s getting it. ❤


Happy Tails Petunia <3 It was a long journey to NY but you were awesome for the whole thing and made so many friends on your way! You have a whole new world to explore and a new life.
Your momma loved you very much and just wanted what was best for you.
Thank you Jennifer Highfield for trusting us with this precious little one. Thanks to everyone from the transport for helping out with her.
She is very loved and cherished.

You are a rock star!!!!!


What can I say! Thank you Jean!!!!!! Zachary has his furever Happy Tail today!!!!! He was left in a New Jersey shelter after his person lost his sight and had to go to assisted living. No one in the family stepped up for this handsome boy so we got the call.
Zachary was so confused and scared when he arrived but loved pets and snuggles. He is now in the best place possible to get those and lots of other stuff to keep him happy.
We all love you Zach and we’re ecstatic that this wonderful lady opened her heart! <3


Drumroll please!!!!!
Todays Happy Tail is brought to you by Sheldon aka Shelley! This handsome boy was handed over by is former people like he was just a piece of merchandise. Now he’s living the life and will be loved and adored forever.
Thank you, Carol Brenner-Bray for getting him to safety and to Melissa Mastin for being an amazing foster mom! She took this adorable boy thinking he was 16 years old (he’s not 16, no way no how) and it didn’t bother her a bit. Thanks to Ashley Anne for keeping him for sleepovers till he got to Melissa.
Have a wonderful life little man.


And then this, the first of our gorgeous puppies has gone to her new home.
Happy tails to my beautiful Iris.
I watched you be born and grow and saw your personality come to life.
It is an incredible experience and I’m thankful that I was chosen to be your Doggy Grandmama.

Today our sweet happy boy is going to his true furever home with his new and most pawfect Dad!!!!! Thank you Bob, for trusting my judgment on which corgo needed you the most.
Happy tails Hunter. You are going to be missed!

Dixie Belle

So many months ago Dixie Belle came to the rescue with some other pups from Arkansas. Her leg had been broken for years and needed to be repaired. It took a while for her pawfect parents and new sisfurs to find her but it’s a match!
Mom & Dad, Beth and Chris love her and Della Street and Gracie are all cool with it. Happy Tails my precious girl <3
You will have a carefree and charmed life now. Always in my heart little love. You chose very wisely.

Well now Zoey has a new family to love her and will make sure she is never lost and alone again!
Happy Tails Zoey!

Susie Pickles

Susie Pickles came to us along with her two sisters from a horrid (as they all are) puppy mill in PA. They were taken out of their cages only to mate and have puppies and then returned to lead a life of filth, pain and loneliness.
Well, sound the trumpets as Miss Susie is going to her forever home! She will now be free from pain and have a family that will love her forever!
Happy Tails little girl!


Gouda has left the building! This boy couldn’t walk or even support his body after years of neglect. He was so obese he could barely move to try to get out of his own excrement. He now is gaining his muscle mass back and walking on his own. He’s been eyeing the back steps but that’s a mission for his new dad to take care of.
Thank you Gouda for helping me to remember that there is joy in everyday if you look.
Thank you to Auntie Carol for helping get him here and for letting him ride shotgun in a hotrod on his way to his furever home.
I will never ever forget you little man. Love to you always!


Another Happy Tail! This time it’s for Baby Hazel <3
We had a pregnant mill mom come in and this is one of her pups! How gorgeous is she?
Thanks to Paula, who took over for me when they were 8 weeks, thanks to Maria for your great choice of pet parents, thanks to Tracy, for the referral and thanks to everyone who supports us all.

Thank you to your new Auntie Erin for coming to take you home!
Happy tails Piper! You both struck platinum!


Lexie was pulled out of a high kill shelter along with her sister Daisy.
They waited for their family to come for them but no one ever came.
The shelter would not release one sister without the other so of course we took both.Here is Lexie with her new Mommy!
Happy Tails Lexie!!!


Poor little Bootsie had come to us at the sweet age of only 8 months old. Her previous family was obviously not the right fit for this playful little pup.
As we know puppies are a handful and they didn’t have the patience for her…..WELL…..their lack of puppy patience is another families gold!!!
Happy Tails pretty Bootsie.
We know you will be living a great life in your new furever home!


There are no words to express how happy we are that our beloved Kingston has found his furever home!!!! For some strange reason this amazing pup was overlooked for way too long. He was practically our mascot as we all loved him so much!!
Well a wonderful family saw the amazing qualities in him that we at OBFR did!
Happy Tails Kingston! You finally have the family that you so deserve!!


Best news ever!
Annie has made it to her true furever home! She will, from this day forward, be loved and cherished as she should have been all along.

Happy tails Warren, look at you and your new family.
You made quite the impression on us and gave us lots of giggles.
Woofs to the best life ever!

Magoo a.k.a Muffi

Well where do we begin with this precious baby? Muffi’s Dad was an elderly man who loved her so much. His daughter reached out to us because she knew her Dad was too old to properly care for Muffi. When they handed him to Pattie he sank right into her in comfort.
He was immediately Vetted and groomed and placed in the home of his foster mom Vicki. Well I don’t think we could have found a more perfect Foster because Vicki fell in love immediately. The care and attention she gave this little man was off the charts.
After fostering him for a very long time as we had no adoption applications on him…Muffi, now Magoo became a permanent member of Vickis family!
Happy Tails little man…you are truly loved.

Oliver a.k.a Ted

Ted came to OBFR as an owner surrender. His parents were getting a divorce. We immediately noticed that Ted had been abused. His tail was chewed and he was showing severe signs of anxiety. We were extremely choosy with who was going to be the perfect fit for Ted.
He needed someone with extensive Corgi experience.
Well low and behold…The perfect family was found!
Happy Tails Ted…now known as Oliver. May you have the perfect life you always deserved.


Molly was found alone on the streets in Lancaster PA. She was in rough shape when she got to the PSPCA and it was determined that she had been bred over and over and over.
Her info went out with a bunch of other dogs and her tiny face just sucked me in. So along with Alex and Aspen aka Bambi she came to NY. She needed medical attention that we got for her right away and then she was ready for a real home.
Well here they are a whole family of love!


After being set aside for human children and having his world turned upside down,
Niles found his furever home!!!
Happy tails Niles your Momma has the best home and biggest heart!


Check out these superstars who adopted MATILDA! Matilda’s mom had taken ill and her son was forced to take desperate measures to find her a home.
Of course OBFR stepped in. Matilda was placed in a foster home after a visit to the vet and groomer. Well no surprise here…her foster family immediately fell in love immediately and decided to adopt her!
Happy Tails sweet girl you deserve nothing but the best!


So this morning at 6:00am I got Delilah up, packed her bags, and we went outside. Surprise Delilah!, her new Mommy and Daddy we’re waiting for her, they drove all the down from Maine!
Our girl finally has a family that understands all her needs and little quirks. She knows they are for her, just look at how she is looking at them with pure love saying, “I’m ready”.
Some pups take longer than others, but I truly believe they are waiting for their pawfect people.
Happy Tails Delilah! You are very special and very loved!


We did it folks! Many thanks to Foster Dad Brad and all your help for spreading the word about Holly, she has been ADOPTED!
Her new mom came today to pick up this precious peanut and was greeted with tons of kisses and love. Cupid’s arrow hit these two for sure, just look at their faces! 💋♥️.
Have a great time in your new furever home, we will miss you.

Miss Dixie

One of our previous adopters lost our Leo to cancer a few months ago and her heart was shattered.
She wanted to help another pup in need and asked if she could take Miss Dix home with her. We couldn’t think of anyone we would trust more with this precious girl.
She is so happy and will be loved for the rest of her life

Sunny & Dunkin

Sunny waited for so long to find a home of her own and we couldn’t understand why. But then it happened! A family saw her and knew she had to be their little girl.
Then they heard about Dunkin who had just arrived in the rescue from a very bad puppymill and they said we will bring them both home! Y
ou see they had lost both of their corgi’s early this year.
Sunny and Dunkin are helping them heal their hearts and they are teaching them how to be a cherished part of a family of their own.


Mellie spent the first 6 months of her life alone in a cage in a shelter.
It took her a while to learn how to trust humans but with the help of a beautiful girl and her parents Mellie is now the center of the universe!
She is thriving and is loved!
That’s what rescue is really all about!


Bobby has gone home and is the happiest little guy ever!
He brought so much joy and love to his new family! He is one happy lucky little pup and so are his new sister, mom and dad!
He is one spoiled pup!

Chub Chumly aka Lord Chumly has been adopted!
Chuly people saw him and fell in love. Everything hinged on how their other dogs and Chum got along.
The family traveled to Long Island to have a meet and greet with humans and furkids to see how it would go.
Well we were all ecstatic when everyone got along great and Chum loved the humans as well!
He is now gentrified and living in Connecticut. He sleeps on a humans bed and cuddles and is pampered.
Way to go handsome man! Another pup that suffered horribly at the hands of humans has learned trust and restored faith.


Fanny has gone from an abandoned puppy mill breeder to a family and inside pup!

We love you Max!

Poor Bella was an owner surrender after living with her family for 7 years.
After spending several months at her foster Moms house she finally got the break we were hoping for!
Here is our little Bella with her new mommy Priscilla!

Happy Tails little girl!


Cassidy, a Shepard Mix, was left in a shelter in South Carolina by people who refused to spay or neuter their other dogs.
After spending several weeks with his foster mom Paula, he finally found his forever home!
Happy Tails Cassidy…You are going to have a great life!


So we got some emails asking us for help last week. Seems this adorable little Irish Terrier had been abandoned in an apartment. They didn’t know how long she had been there but she was painfully thin and the place was filthy. A RE agent went there and saw her and was told they needed to find a place for her to go or she would have to go to NYACC. So after a few questions we figured we would have to try for her.
In the meantime a wonderful family had applied for another of our dogs but it wasn’t a good fit for the family so we had to say no, but that we would find them the right pup for them. They were really upset, you see they had been really jerked around by a few other rescues and felt defeated. They’ve been through a lot recently and didn’t deserve to be sad. They are such nice people.
Pattie thought this little girl might be the right fit. They met her, it was pure love and joy from Fiona and the family, and now she has the pawfect furever family. She will have a wonderful life.
Happy Tails Fiona! You really are an amazing pup!

As you might remember our sweet little Tater was left tied to a tree by his former owner and was severely mauled by a loose dog. His owner abandoned him at the nearest shelter bloody and in pain with a mangled eye! Well we snatched up that adorable little guy and got him the medical attention that he needed and he was good as new!

Beautiful Lady has found her forever home!
Lady was one of the 4 Pit Bull puppies that we acquired from the crackhead at 7/11 one cold rainy day.
After we got them they were placed with a wonderful foster mom and one by one Ladies siblings were adopted. Lady was the sole puppy left.
Well…no surprise here…She was adopted by her Foster Mom Destinee!!!! We couldn’t have asked for a better home for our little girl!
Happy Tails Lady!!!


Boo was dumped at a vet and they lied about her and wanted her euthanized over a bite that resulted from their idiocy. People should be ashamed. Thank goodness someone at West Hills Vet got her on FB and we were alerted that she was there. Friends stepped up and Boo was in our protective hands quickly.
She has now found her forever home on Long Island with Claire & Rick and will be loved and worshiped as all corgis should be forever! She has an older brother, The Weinie, a JRT and horses to herd. She will now live the life she was always meant to have. And her cuteness is much appreciated by her mom and dad too!!!!!
Happy Tails Boo!


It is with the utmost joy that we announce that Trench, the diabetic Japanese Chin, has found the most pawsome forever home! This little guy went through the mill when his daddy died and he was taken to NYACC. They would have killed him for sure because of his illness.
Many thanks go to the amazing Mary Ann McCarthy Macdonell and her hubby Marc for fostering him so he would be close to the hospital so we could get his sugar under control. Thanks to Grady Animal Hospital and their entire staff for the care you gave him and give all our babies! And so many thanks go to Kim and her husband for seeing our little man and loving his goofy smile and handsome ways!
Trench waited a long time for the best family every! He has two doggy siblings now and will be living the life!
Happy Tails sweet boy! You deserve the best!


Poor little 3 month old Thor, a Bichon, was dumped at a local Pet Smart by its owner because he was lethargic and hadn’t eaten for 2 weeks!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!??? Luckily one of our amazing volunteers was at the store and called us immediately.

Well we knew it wouldn’t take long before someone appreciated this little guy and wanted to make him a part of their family! Here is our little guy now with his new family!!
Happy tails Thor!!!

Honey (Formally Olympia)

We had gotten a call from a woman out of state that told us her tenant was being evicted and he had a ” bulldog” that he needed to get rid of by today or he had to bring it to the shelter! We quickly went to pick up the dog and when the tenant opened the door we immediately saw that it was not a bulldog but a pitbull. Although we love pitbull’s we usually don’t take them because of their size but this dog had the most sweetest disposition we had ever seen so of course we snatched her up.
She just sat in the car like a little angel looking out the front window not knowing what to expect. While examining her in the car we noticed that she had several scratches on her face which indicated that she was used for fighting. We also noticed that she was definitely used as a breeding dog. We urgently called out for help with an emergency Foster.
Well, not only was she quickly fostered that day but her foster parents fell in love with her immediately and decided to keep her! So congratulations to Honey and her new mommy and daddy!
Happy tails beautiful pup!


Hercules and his sister Coco came to us after we received a call for help. Their human Dad had passed away and a family member needed to rehome them ASAP.
We were told that they were about 15 years old and our hearts ached for them! Well…after we took them we realized that these amazing dogs were NO WAY that old! They are sooo beautiful and healthy and vibrant.
After a thorough exam by our Vet it was confirmed they were much younger than originally thought. Hercules and his sister remained with us for a few months until they each found their furever homes! One week within each other too!
Here is Hercules with his new furever Mommy!

Oreo was discovered along with her 2 sisters and 1 brother at a local 7-11 by one of our volunteers.
They were with a “human” and were being sold on a cold and rainy winter day outside the store to the highest bidder.
They were only 4 weeks old!!! We immediately took all 4!
Well after weeks of being with one of our amazing foster moms and being vetted and cared for our little Lady Oreo has found her furever home! Here she is with her new family of humans and fursibling!


Trolle was another one of the pups that we took from a local loser who was selling them outside a convenience store to the highest bidder.
Trolle who was named by our foster moms four year old niece has now found her furever home. Here she is with her new brother Spencer, a fellow Pit and her feline sister.
Happy Tails Trolle!

Buddy (now Teddy)

Buddy’s former person was a great fur dad until he became addicted to drugs and they took over his life. After that, Buddy didn’t mean a lot to him. Buddy was left alone all of the time, not groomed and not taken to the vet for checkups.
So Buddy’s dad decided after rehab that he would be better off in a real home and asked us to find that for him. At least he did the right thing.
Well now Buddy has found his furever home and is once again feeling love with his new Mommy Alexa and Daddy Brian! Teddy also has a sister Mia that is also a rescue!
They are all over the moon in happiness! Happy Tails “little” guy! 🙂


We came upon Rex and his brother Jinx when one of our sister rescues in the Carolinas reached out to us for help. Someone had abandoned these beautiful Pyrenees mix puppies at the shelter and they couldn’t bear to see them there.
We immediately found fosters and arranged for them to be brought to us in New York. Well here is Rex with his new family! Rex has and new mom, dad and brothers and sisters with 2 legs and 4! Rex’ new family also ONLY ADOPTS RESCUES!
They have done so with all of their furchildren and for that we give a special shout out! Happy Tails Rex!

Bandit (formerly known as Jinx)

As stated above Jinx (now called Bandit) was abandoned with his brother at one of our sister rescues in the Carolinas. When brought to New York he and his brother were placed with foster parents and put on one of our adoption pages.
Well…..Bandits new family had searched sooo many rescues trying to find their perfect furbaby match. They had all but given up hope when they came across Bandits adorable face! Bandit now has an amazing family who are over the moon in love!
Happy Tails little, or should I say BIG, guy! !


Ming had lost her home because her mom was in her last stage of cancer and doesn’t have a lot of time. She wanted to be sure that Ming would find a home where she is able to live out the rest of her life and be loved.
Well, Donna had seen our plea online and came to sad Mings rescue. Ming now lives with her new mommy and sister and will continue to know what love is. Her previous Mom had done a very brave thing and now she can rest easy knowing that her precious little girl is safe and loved.
Happy Tails Ming!

Fortunately one of our Volunteers and amazing Foster Mom SusanJo’s brother saw our Boomer and fell in love!
Boomer is now with his furever family and couldn’t be happier! Happy Tails Boomer!


Pretty Penny was an owner surrender to our rescue. Her previous owner worked long hours and poor Penny was left in a crate all day.
She was taken very well care of but was lonely and had no social skills whatsoever so her owner decided it was best for Penny to let her go. No sooner was Penny placed in a foster home than we had a wonderful family interested in her!!
Her new Daddy had never owned a dog in his whole life because of allergies and was so happy when he heard Penny was hypoallergenic! Pennys foster mom fell in love with this amazing family and is getting constant updates on Pennys new life!
She now has a Mommy, Daddy and 2 human sisters. She is enjoying being part of a big family! Happy Tails Penny!


Betsy’s previous life consisted of spitting out puppies so her human could make money. She was never taught to walk on a leash, to do tricks or anything else a family pet does. When she couldn’t produce any more income for her “family” she was tossed aside.
Well….Now Betsy will know what its like to be loved by a REAL family! Congratulations to you all because you have a wonderful little girl in Betsy! I think her new mommy and Daddy know that by the looks on their faces! Happy Tails Little Betsy!


Poor Lily had a wonderful life until her human mommy passed away. She was devastated, confused and just plain sad. When Lily came to us we knew she was a special girl. She needed someone to love her again.
Well here is our baby with her new big brother. Lily also has a new mommy that will love her dearly. Life is good for you again Miss Lillian.


Today with happiness and tears we sent our little George on to the rest of his wonderful life. With a new Momma and as an only (not if we can help it) dog he is going to be loved and spoiled and treated the way he should have been his whole life!
Thank you to every one who helped him in his journey from being a neglected and abused little man to the sweet boy he is now. He will be very missed around here. Happy Tails Georgie Boy! You are a lucky little dog!


A previous adopter of one of our very special seniors reached out recently and was asking about Leo, but his adoption was pending so we said Hey! What about our little Poppy girl!!!!!! And now she is in her furever home and will have so much love she won’t know what to do with it!
She is already making friends at the communal gathering spot for horizontals and resting on couches and getting squished! Love you PopPop! Thank to Mark and Sarah for opening their hearts after losing our sweet Oliver. Poppy will bring you many years of love and joy! <3 Happy tails little princess! You are so loved!


After many months and two surgeries Leo has gone to his perfect furever home. His journey from a high kill shelter in Miami to his new home in NY has been a long one. Today he played like a little child in the snow for the first time. He loved it as any corgi would!
He looks so happy and for the first time ever since we’ve known him and he even got up on their couch all by himself! He didn’t even do that with 4 legs before!!! You go our little tripod! We will love you forever! You showed us all that our only limitations are the ones we put on ourselves! Rock on Leo!

Our little boy Tux Formally known as CHI… Came all the way to us from Puerto Rico. This poor little guy was living on dead dog beach and was homeless and left to fend for himself.

May you have all the love that you deserve from these amazing people!



Poor Drew was left at a local kill shelter because a woman’s new boyfriend didn’t like him!!! Yep..you read correctly! He would torment poor Drew and when Drew couldn’t take the torture anymore he snapped at the horrible boyfriend. So, the woman dumped him and said he bit someone. For those of you who don’t know, being labeled a biter at a kill shelter is a certain death sentence. How evil could someone be!? Anyway, the shelter reached out to us (because we LOVE CORGIS! ) and we pulled him. Drew was assessed and found to be fine and he has now found his furever home with a loving family. Happy Tails Drew!



Barney was a stray roaming the streets of South Carolina. He was picked up by Animal Control and taken to the local kill shelter. When we saw that adorable face we knew we had to bring him to NY. We had so many people interested in Barney but one couple stood out among us. Michele and Peter are the perfect parents for our special little man. Barney couldn’t be more loved and is having a blast watching the Giants with his dad and cuddling with his Mom when Dad goes to work. Happy Tails Barney!!!

Happy tails little guy!



Shelby was dumped at a local Pet Supply Store. A man rushed in with 2 Shepard mix puppies, one was bloody and the other seemed OK. He threw the puppy in the arms of a store worker and ran!!! Luckily one of our volunteers was in the store at the time! The ASPCA and police were contacted but the puppy was released to us. To date neither the ASPCA or the Police have done anything to find this man!!! Anyway…Shelby was rushed to our Vet and was given medical care and released. She is now in a wonderful home with a family that adores her!

Poor little Shadow was a lonely feral living on the street left to fend for himself. He was hungry and cold. He was finally picked up by Animal Control but was taken to a Kill Shelter!

Shadow now Lives in a beautiful home in Pennsylvania with his Mommy and Daddy and 2 furry brothers and sisters who adore him! Happy Tails Shadow! Your days of worry are over.

She now has a new mom and dad and 3 human siblings! Happy tail Raven (now Rosalina )



Sweet Maggie was just another little black dog with a broken leg in a crappy shelter. She sat in a kennel for many weeks with no care taken for her leg and was on the list to be gassed that day. Seeing her sweet face it wasn’t going to happen! When she arrived at her foster we got her to the vet said it was best for the leg to be removed. Well Maggie did awesome and everyone loved her there and prayed she would get an amazing furever home! Well her she is now! Welcome home Maggie! She has brothers and sisters now of her very own Gus, Baxter, Stella, McLuvin and Daffney have all welcomed her into their pack with Momma and Daddy! Happy tails my little tripod.
Slider with alias Nigel not found.


Nigel was found abandoned on the streets of Queens Village in NY. He was in horrible shape. Filthy and matted with a very large tumor on his hind end. We were called and immediately asked to take him in and of course we said yes.
He was rushed to the vet and surgery was performed and luckily the biopsy came back as benign. He then needed to heal before adoption would be possible. All the volunteers fell crazy in love with him and as he got better we knew he was going to make someone a great best friend.
And then one day a beautiful girl we all knew asked if we had any pups that were older and just his size and we were thrilled!
Nigel and Ashley met and it was true love at first sight for both of them! Nigel now lives in California and gets to see the beach all the time.
Happy Tails Nigel! You are truly loved forever now!

Willis was left in a high kill shelter in September of 2013. We were asked to save him as he was next on their list. Of course we stepped up. When he arrived we saw a frightened little dog who was cute as a button and we knew we had a great pup in our midst!
Willis had over 30 meet and greets and everyone loved him but no one wanted to take him home. He was either too big or too shy with them or something. It was always something.
One day a family asked us about a dog and we knew Willis would be the perfect fit! Huge issue though, the daughter was terrified of dogs and thought a little fluffy white dog would get her over her fear. Well that wasn’t our Willis!
But they came and the beautiful teenage daughter stood frozen, crying and didn’t move for almost half an hour. She then got up the courage to sit on the floor with her mom and her brother. And then it happened. Our boy slowly looked at her and asked in his eyes “why doesn’t anyone love me?” and then crawled into Victoria’s lap. From that day on Willis had love like he had never known. He is the most loved pup and so very spoiled. Victoria has gone to college now but every moment she comes home she spends with her boy.
Willis needed this family as much as they needed him. He helped them heal after the loss of a loved one and a divorce. His story is a real who rescued who?
Slider with alias mabel not found.


Mabel came in from a South Carolina shelter with her 3 puppies. We don’t ever believe in taking puppies and leaving the momma dog behind. Mabel was gorgeous and her puppies we so sweet! The found their forever homes but Mabel waited a little while.
You see, Mabel had chosen her new family but they didn’t know it yet! My friend Susan had met Mabel many times and loved her but wasn’t ready to have another pup since she had recently lost her dog of 15 years. So each time she came over Mabel wooed a little bit more.
One day Susan called and said “ I want to bring Mabel home” and that was that! She enjoys the life of a pup of leisure and is ridiculously spoiled by all! She has aunts and uncles from all over the world and is one special lady!
Slider with alias tia not found.


Tia came to us from South Carolina. We first saw her in an online photo in a shelter after a hoarders house was raided. She was kept in a crate in a small home with about a hundred other dogs. Poor Tia was only a year or so old and had never been held or had individual attention. When we saw that adorable sad face we knew right away we needed to help her find a loving home.
Tia was placed in foster care with our Volunteer Michele and immediately became a member of her family of furbabies. She became Micheles first “foster failure” and still lives there with her 2 cat sisters Cannoli and Tequila and her dog brother Bocce.
Slider with alias bocce not found.


We got a phone call from a woman in the Bronx NY that she no longer “wanted” her dog. She kept him locked in the bathroom of her apartment for the first year and a half of his life! He was matted dirty and scared. He must have tried to escape the bathroom because his tailbone is crinkled as if it had been broken and healed wrong. We had one of our volunteers pick him up and he was brought to our rescue.
Our volunteer Michele had just lost her dog Jasmine of 17 years and poor Tia was lost and lonely. Pattie decided that Bocce would be the perfect fit for her home…temporarily! Well Bocce was Micheles second “foster failure” 😛
