There's a reason Friday's Child is now a part
of Her New York, if only to say thank you.
TROY OF NEW YORK!!!
You want to support animal rescue but you have no time and no space for a pet. I hear your pain. But wait, there's another way you can have the joy of rescuing even if you can't take a puppy yourself.
Little Troy was rescued from a high-kill shelter in NYC. Before he ended up there, he was severely neglected, kept exclusively in a tiny cage, and only fed scraps every other day. Due to lack of nutrition, space, exercise, (and love!), he did not grow properly -- his legs are deformed, his teeth are rotting, and his body is weak from muscle atrophy.
But despite his rocky start, this little angel is happy! He LOVES EVERY HUMAN HE MEETS, showering them with wiggles and kisses. Social Tees wanted to help this boy get a shot at life and give him the medical attention he needs. So they put out a call for donations for his medical treatment. And everybody shared the words.
GUESS WHAT HAPPENED????
UPDATE FROM SOCIAL TEES!!
WOAH!! WE JUST GOT A CRAZY DONATION TO OUR FUNDRAISER!!!
An extremely generous soul just donated $500 to help this neglected, abused (but happy!) kill shelter rescue puppy receive the medical care he needs for proper rehabilitation.
.. BUT TROY STILL NEEDS YOUR HELP - Our goal is to raise $6,000 by August 24, and we're almost halfway there!!! Every dollar counts, animal-lovers. Spread the love far and wide!
SO join in!!!!!! donate whatever you have - nothing is too little and nothing is too big. It's all perfect and when you see Troy prancing happily down the street with his new mom or pop you'll know you were part of what made it happen. Now, that's priceless.
WAIT! YOU WANT SEE IF YOU WANT YOUR OWN PUPPY!!????
WHAT ABOUT FOSTERING THESE GUYS!?
Social Tees has been bringing up puppies from high-kill shelters in the south and has a bunch of puppies up for adoption. However, they'll need fostering homes as well.
WHAT'S FOSTERING, YOU WONDER?!
WHAT'S FOSTERING, YOU WONDER?!
Fostering lasts a few weeks, and Social Tees can provide supplies if you need them. Fostering is SUPER important because it's much healthier for our animals to be in homes than in cages, and it expands our shelter virtually.
AND for every cat and dog that is placed in a foster home, Social Tees can pull another out of the kill shelter. So if you are an animal-lover with commitment issues, FOSTER!!!

WAIT! YOU DON'T WANT TO FOSTER?? YOU WANT TO ADOPT???
WELL HELLO THERE!!!!
Esmeralda and her sister Tabitha, another way adorable Chihuahua, are hanging out at Social Tees while they wait for the right forever family to come along and sweep them off their feet. They were recently rescued from a neglectful home and are sooooooo grateful for all of the loving attention and fresh air they now get! They adore affection (especially belly rubs!) and chilling while you sit and read on a bench outside.
HOW DO I ADOPT!
Do you want to meet these guys and all the other great pups and kitties at Social Tees, but you're stuck at your desk during the week? Then come to the weekend events at Petco / Union Square!!
