Hoarding rescue update! a few weeks ago, we took in seven chihuahuas that had been rescued from a hoarding situation in mississippi, from a property where more than 250 dogs were roaming free. the dogs are highly traumatized and most are completely terrified of humans. frances, pictures here, is one of the most "outgoing" of the group, and has allowed some gentle touch. she's beginning to walk on leash outside, and is helping some of the more scared dogs with feel protected and comfortable. our internal training team is working daily on the slow, painstaking process of socialization, and teeny tiny progress is being made!

if you're a patient person who is willing to give frances a chance, we invite you to come meet her at animal haven! she's still coming out of her shell, but she is as sweet as pie and you're sure to fall in love.

Kirk update! back in may we told you about kirk, a tiny terrier who arrived neglected, abused and severely matted, with a deep strangulation wound on his front left leg. we feared he'd need the leg amputated, but he's made a miraculous recovery! after a month of medical treatment and rest, his leg is mostly healed and he's putting weight on it when he walks! πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘
kirk is an excitable, happy-go-lucky guy who loves people. he'd prefer to be the only pet, but gosh, he sure does love humans. adopt kirk!

If we had to choose one classification for dewey decimal, it would probably be the 100's - philosophy. when dewey decimal isn't busy reflecting on the meaning of life, he's pondering questions such as, "when will i find a new home?" and "which human(s) will give the best under-chin scritches?" if you'd like to help answer these questions for dewey decimal, come meet him at animal haven and become his person!

Adorable pupdate! maddie was adopted about a month ago and we just received the cutest update! maddie's new mom says, "just wanted to reach out and let you know that maddie (now "ducky") is very loved in her new home in nyc!! thank you all so much for the amazing work you're doing and bringing this new joy in our lives." πŸ’œ this puts a smile as big as ducky's on our faces! 😁

Is it just us, or does yoyo seem like he's in on the joke?! this senior sensation is still looking for a home, but in the meantime, he's become close with some of our staff. as the self-appointed head of the welcome committee, yoyo jumps with glee when we arrive, then runs to your feet and comes in for a cuddle. honestly, if you're having a bad day, yoyo's sweet greeting makes you forget about it.

since he's deaf, yoyo prefers love on his terms. yoyo loves affection, as long as he's the one to initiate it. this little lion would make an awesome addition to a relaxed, low-key, all-adult household. adopt yoyo!

Nudge nudge, wink wink: just a reminder that ben is still looking for a home! if you're looking for a super-playful pup with a happy-go-lucky personality, ben is your guy. he's a true "toy hound" and loves nothing more than bouncing around a room, throwing his toys in the air and reminding us that joy is contagious.

ben is the perfect size - a medium-sized "pocket pittie" for a nyc apartment, and he loves to get active and explore around the city. that said, he'll also be content with a house in the 'burbs or some digs near a hiking trail. want to wake up to this smile every day? adopt ben!

We love a good 'survivor' story, so we'd like to introduce pisces! at only weeks old, pisces and her three littermates tested positive for a potentially deadly virus called feline panleukopenia, which is the leading cause of death in cats. highly contagious, cats with this infection typically have a very poor prognosis and we feared that she and her littermates wouldn't survive. but after weeks of intensive treatment and care by our medical team, we have great news: all four kittens survived and they are healthy!! πŸ’ž
now three months old, pisces and her siblings (aries, libra and capricorn) are ready to find love. come meet these adoptable kitties at animal haven! [ps - they're wearing cones because they were just spayed!]

Have you ever seen a more beautiful face? erin just arrived at animal haven from miami, where she had landed in a shelter with series injuries, most likely the result of a car accident. her physical injuries have healed, and now erin's heart is learning to heal.

erin is a total mush and bonds to people quickly. because of this, she becomes anxious when left alone. our amazing friend @mrsyobe has helped erin work with a veterinary behaviorist and she's making progress. but we're looking for a home for sweet erin where her new family will continue working with her to ensure her progress continues. she is 40 pounds of pure love, and her her person or people will be lucky to call her theirs! stop by animal haven to meet erin - you will fall in love! #animalhaven

Meet margie! this precious little senior beagle came to us from a local shelter just last week. our poor girl looks like she could have been abused -- definitely neglected. πŸ’”πŸ’” she is covered in scars and has a slight limp. but don't let any of this deter you! she is seriously the sweetest dog in town. πŸ˜‰ and because of that, she'd probably do best in a quiet home full of love so she can relax during her retirement years. who can blame her? and even better, she doesn't seem to be bothered by cats or dogs. in fact, she is currently rooming with another pup at the shelter and all is going well. they just went on a walk together around the block. adorable! to meet margie, please visit us at 200 centre street in nyc tuesday-sunday between 12 and 6pm. she is waiting for you. #animalhaven #beagle #seniordog #seniorbeagle #beagles #adoptdontshop #rescuebeaglesofinstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog #dogsofinstagram #beaglesofinstagram #beaglesofinsta #adoption #seniordogs #seniordogsrule #beaglesrock #beaglesrule

Looking for some #goodnewstues? meet 7-month-old maní! he arrived a few weeks ago from costa rica, by way of our friends at @rivierarescue in mexico. his rescuer saved him at around 2 months old (omg swipe for his baby pics!!) and he's been looking for an adoptive family ever since.

maní was born with front legs that aren't fully developed. despite his physical differences, maní has learned to scoot around really well, and even sits up on his hind legs when he begs for treats or attention! he is extremely social with both dogs and people, and loves to play.

we're currently exploring the best prosthetic option for maní to improve his mobility and comfort. we can't wait to see this happy boy on four legs!
