Good Morning,

My step mom is looking for a shelter to re-home 2 ferrets. The ferrets were both hers and my Dad's.....Unfortunately, my Dad passed away and my step mom will be moving into an apartment and she can't take them with her. Please note that this is a very difficult decision for her as she loves them and were a connection with my Dad.

Hello!

We recently adopted a funny, quirky lab mix. She has so many wonderful qualities and we love her very much. Unfortunately, she is reactive to other dogs and, following two incidence in which she attacked neighbor dogs, we've made the very difficult decision to rehome her. We love Viva and it is important to us that she find the right family to live a long and happy life.

Viva is a very intelligent and silly girl. She is quick to learn new tricks and skills and loves training time. Viva barely sheds, licks, or barks. She loves to go for walks and runs. She runs up to 2 miles and would probably go further (and much faster) if we tried. She is obsessed with rides in the car and would prefer to sit up front (I think she'd prefer to try to drive if we let her!) but will ride in the back when told firmly that that's where she belongs. She loves chin scratches, belly rubs, chewing sticks or her nylon bone, and playing tug of war with her rope. She has the silliest, funniest zoomies. She'll jump and turn in the air and she can throw balls and toys back towards you (though not on command yet.) Viva has also recently experienced kayaking. We practiced on dry land and rewarded her with treats for getting in and sitting down. Recently, we took her to a small pond to practice and she got right in and seemed very happy to sit in the kayak while we paddled around. We haven't tried a big lake yet as we wanted to get her used to a doggie life jacket before trying something we couldn't stand in ourselves.

Viva has boundaries and she will let you know when you've crossed them. She may be enjoying having her belly rubbed and then she will decide she's all done and let you know with a growl and sudden movement away from you. She is extremely pray driven around cats and will run (very fast) to chase them and will chase them up a tree. She is trained to an invisible fence but if something is tempting enough (like a delicious looking cat) she will run right through, take the shock, and keep running.

She doesn't beg. Usually doesn't even come in the kitchen when we're eating. She occasionally jumps on people but not often at all. Just tell her no and she stops. She isn't destructive. She doesn't touch anything that doesn't belong to her.

She is stubborn though. If you try to bring her somewhere she doesn't want to go she digs her heels right in and won't budge. Sometimes you can get her to move by getting all excited and running in the direction you want to go. If she's being stubborn about something, treats don't even do the trick.

Do you have room for our sweet girl? Can you help us find a home for her?

Harper- left is 6 years old and is a Schitsu Yorkie mix - about 13 lbs. Finn- right is 8 years old and is a Schitsu Chihuahua mix- about 13 lbs. they are both happy, friendly dogs who love to play and snuggle. Excellent condition and have all of their vaccines. Both males and neutered. They need to be kept together as a pair as they totally love each other.
We want to find a good home for them - maybe with a family or someone who has time to spend them and can take them on walks or play with them.

Thanks so much for your help. This is sad and hard for the owner, Chris, but he is unable to give them the time and attention they deserve for a happy life.

Smokey is a grey five year old domestic shorthair. She came from a senior home, who could no longer care for her. She is entirely a one-person cat. Would be great for an older owner. She will sit in your lap or lay on your bed and purr. Definitely not for a home with kids. Not good with dogs or other cats either. Eats mixed hard and soft food. (May need a rabies shot only.)
Contact Marlene Hays or us if someone can help or us interested.

Happy Easter!

COURTESY POST UPDATE ~ Mocha has been adopted. Ruby is still looking for her fur-ever home.

Sad story. 😢
Ruby’s human passed away after medical complications and Ruby is being fostered by a friend of that person. Unfortunately, the foster cannot keep the dog long-term due to personal issues.
Ruby is a 2 years old mix breed. She is housebroken, crate trained if desired, spayed, and good with cats. At this point in time, it is not known how she is around small children but good with dogs. She has a good temperament and has no food/treat aggression.
She is local to the Albany area and if you’re interested, please first reach out to the foster, Josephine, via email and provide your contact information to: [email protected]

Please SHARE this post so that Ruby can get adopted! Thank you. ❤️🐾

This extraordinary thing happened….
Wreaths Across America is an amazing cause, they care for veterans in the most honorable way, they place & tend to these beautiful wreaths all through the holiday season until 3/5….
then have no choice but to discard them
UNTIL our paths crossed 🤗
Our goats absolutely love pine and JDog Refuse & Recycling, a veteran run business donated their trucks, their time, & their men to pick up these beautiful wreaths from Saratoga National Cemetery and give the wreaths a new life, sustaining ours! 🐐🥰

What a journey, how do we explain the feelings of today…..a year ago today the worst fear of any farm/rescue happened, the most devastating loss, especially of life, our barn fire.

COURTESY POST ~ meet Mocha & Ruby. Sad story. 😢

Their human passed away after medical complications and they are being fostered by a friend of that person. Unfortunately, the foster cannot keep the dogs long-term due to personal issues. These dogs are bonded so it would be great to keep them together in their future forever home.
Mocha is the smaller white dog, with tan spots (3 yrs old) & Ruby is the bigger dog (2 yrs old). They are housebroken, crate trained if desired, spayed, and good with cats. At this point in time, it is not known how they are with other dogs or small children. They have good temperaments and have no food/treat aggression.
They are local to the Albany area and if you’re interested, please first reach out to the foster, Josephine, via email and provide your contact information to: [email protected]

A very special dog named Panda is in need of an equally special home. Many rescue groups and Steve Caporizzo’s Pet Connection have been suggested and considered by the family.

Panda is a very active 60lb, black and white Goldendoodle. She was born on 9/30/20. She is very smart and loves to train and play. She lacks some self confidence and needs an experienced and dedicated home who will help her grow and succeed into a happier and calmer dog.

Panda exhibits extreme resource guarding behaviors and does have a bite history. She would be best placed with experienced dog owners who have resource guarding management experience and who will continue ongoing positive training and behavior modification. In the right environment with training, consistent mental and physical stimulation and consistent management she could become a calmer more balanced dog.

A potential home would not be with children. She is friendly and cautious with one on one dog interaction but does not have solid social skills developed. She has no exposure to cats.
Vet and trainer references are a must.

If you are interested or can help please message me.
A photo of her is available to those interested but will otherwise not be posted.

HeartsHerd Animal Sanctuary is an amazing partner, working with UH and others to help foster pets and farm animals of those seeking refuge. Check out their social media for a dose of instant cuteness.
Thank you Avery!
All the animals at HeartsHerd Animal Sanctuary
Thank you! ❤️
Such amazing work by this Buskirk non-profit who needs help!

You may recall they are part of a partnership of vets, animal rescue groups, and volunteers that help foster pets/livestock of those who seek refuge from domestic violence. If you are able, please consider helping/sharing so they can continue to help animals in need.

Note: if a receipt for tax purposes is something you’ll need, consider donating directly to HeartsHerd Animal Sanctuary, which is a non-profit. Not sure if donations to Go Fund Me are tax-deductible. Links for ways to help are on Hearts Herd page.

Grateful for their work and all who help them!
Maybe you could share this around? For an old teacher of mine from High school who's family is missing their cat badly.
