Meet the True Gentleman of Save-A-Pet, Toby! Toby was part of the now defunct Olympic Animal Sanctuary and made his way cross country to stay with us until we find him a forever home. Toby is a shy boy at first, but once he feels safe, his character shines and show his playful, extremely affectionate, and happy personality. Toby enjoys being outside and does wonderful both on and off leash and comes when he is called. Here is a bit more information about this VERY handsome boy.
AGE: 8-10 Years old
BREED: Rottie/Lab Mix
DOGS: Toby is okay with other dogs but we do require a meet and greet. He may prefer to just be the only apple of your eye in his twilight years.
CATS: We do not know how Toby is with cats, but we will be assessing how he does soon.
KIDS: Toby would do best in a quiet home with older children, or with an older couple looking for a friend who will be loyal to them and their home.
IN HOUSE: Toby enjoys being outside and would likely prefer a home with plenty of outdoor time, and a warm place in the home to rest at night. He doesnt need a ton of space, just wants to be with you.
STATUS: Toby is neutered, microchipped, and UTD on all vaccines .
NEXT STEPS: Visit www.saveapetny.org to fill out an application and come up with your whole family (including dogs) for a meet and greet!

STOP. BREEDING. DOGS!!!!
Yesterday we received a call from someone who was trying to help a woman place the puppies that she "couldn't sell". As most people know, the care and attention needed to raise dogs is quite intensive and requires tons of attention. These puppies clearly did not receive that.
One of our dedicated volunteers met with the woman and picked up four Shih Tzu puppies. While he began carrying them to his car, he noticed their stomachs were extremely uncomfortable and they were COVERED in fleas. The owner will be bringing the parents to these puppies to the Save-A-Pet Low Cost Clinic to be spayed and neutered to ensure this doesn't happen again. They seemed to be in much better health than the puppies.
Our team worked all evening trying to remove the fleas from these adorable puppies and treated them for their internal parasites and began vaccinations. These puppies will be seeing a vet ASAP to continue their care needed prior to adoption.
We know they're adorable, but they are not yet ready for their forever homes. We will notify via our Facebook page when they will be available.To donate to their care, please visit www.saveapetny.org...Read less
