Friday's Child Is Loving And Giving And Just What The World Needs Now!

Why, you might ask, does a blog that explores New York's disappearing landscape, family and home, write about cats and dogs up for adoption?

Why indeed.

Meanwhile, at Social Tees 
 cats and dogs, 
kittens and puppies 
wait breathlessly to change your life.  
Just like one kitten did mine not so long ago.

Meet  Wonder!

Wonder is a male Lab/Akita mix.  He's 4 years old and 55 pounds. And ABSURDLY well behaved with GREAT manners.  Best of all he gets along with everyone!!

Hello My Name Is...Phillippa!

Phillippa is a female tabby who is 3 months old. She's very easy going and affectionate.  A perfect Valentines'.  She and her sisters!!! are all up for adoption!!!


"My husband and I had wanted a Boston Terrier for ages, but we wanted one from a shelter -- not a breeder -- which we figured we'd never be able to find.   However, we were lucky enough to adopt Betsy after she was rescued from a hoarder in Tennessee. I knew we had to meet her when we saw her picture on the Social Tees Facebook page. 

Given the situation she had been in, it was no surprise that when we got her she was in rough shape.  She had just had puppies (one of which was adopted through ST and they have had play dates with since!), been spayed, had bumps all over her skin from a terrible diet, and her ears were partially eaten away by fleas. She was also really scared. To be honest, I was a little worried about whether it was the right fit when we first met. 

Within an hour of having her home though, I understood what Dimitra had said about finding 'your dog.' After a warm bath she started to relax, and it was clear to us both what a wonderful dog she is. She is so sweet, loving, and happy. She is funny, feisty, and world class cuddler. I truly couldn't imagine our lives without her, and we are forever grateful to Social Tees for saving her!"

Get involved, volunteer, foster!  Adopt!!!
