We are pleased to introduce the winner of our January 2020

Pet of the Month:


A little about Meatu:

Meatu is short for Meatloaf because she is a bit like one, being so spoiled with treats on a daily basis. She came to us through a wonderful organization called Rescue Dogs Rock NYC. She was found severely abused with many bb pellets in her and had two shattered hind legs that required many surgeries. Her legs eventually healed, although somewhat malformed, but despite this has no problem keeping up with our three other dogs running around and digging holes in the yard. She is definitely the boss of the house and loves to snuggle on the couch or in bed where she is served breakfast every morning. She also loves to put on her leather KISS jacket and go for rides in the truck. Although she is the smallest of our brood, she bosses all of the other dogs around and has a very big personality.

Many thanks to Meatu's mom for entering her in our contest!

~Previous Pets of the Month~

Our December 2019 Pet of the Month: Gunther!

Hello Friends! I’m an 8-year-old chocolate lab. My life changed for the better about two years ago when I was adopted by a loving family. My name was changed from Gunner to Gunther and this never really bothered me. I became a “little brother” to Lucky, also a chocolate lab and a year older. Quickly we became great friends. When I wasn’t feeling well; not drinking and eating, my mom and dad took me to see Dr Ryan. She helped me to feel better. Whenever I go for an office visit, I always feel comfortable, everyone is so nice. I’m not even afraid to get a vaccine!
Love, Gunther 

Our November 2019 Pet of the Month: Ruby Mae!

Wow, I'm the Pet of the Month! My name is Ruby Mae Federico and I just moved from Virginia to New York last month. I had a rough go down there but now I'm with my mom and dad and my older sister, Melina Rose. I LOVE going for walks and have a fenced in yard so I can go sniff all the other animals that come around at night. Since we are in the country this is kinda exciting. I think I hit the jackpot with my new family because I am so loved!

Our October 2019 Pet of the Month: Bruno Macaroneas!

This handsome guy is fearless! He looks up to his two sisters...who are cats...and likes to do the things they do. But Bruno's most favorite activities are running the puppy 5 thousand and playing with his frog and spider toys. Bruno's mom says he'll be a great agility dog someday. He might be a great therapy dog, too, because he loves  people!!

Our September 2019 Pet of the Month: Kona!

Kona is a 3 year old Alabama Rescue. Her incredible ears are always an attention-getter! Kona is full of personality and keeps her Dad on his toes. She thinks he is running a restaurant, and eating the same food everyday is definitely not for her! Her happy-go-lucky disposition gets her into all kinds of mischief...walking and running around town with her best friend David by her side!

Our August 2019 Pet of the Month: Buddy!

Buddy is a true gentleman. He's also a working dog! Buddy is on watch at night while his owners sleep, one eye open! Since he works the graveyard shift, Buddy sleeps during the day. He loves a great home cooked meal and his favorite snack is carrots. Many thanks to Buddy's mom and dad for entering him in our contest!
