Lonely Hearts at the New Rochelle Humane Society

In honor of Valentine’s day, the New Rochelle Humane Society is offering a 50% discount on adoption fee of pets who has been at the shelter for four months or more. Often overlooked because of their appearance, age, breed or personality, these pets just might be the perfect match for you. I was very lucky to meet and photograph a few of the lonely hearts candidates last week.

MUFFIN was found wandering the streets of Bronxville. Although she was micro-chipped and the shelter contacted her owner, the owner never called them back. Muffin is a sweet and friendly cat who LOVES to play.

NUZZLE was adopted a few days after his photo shoot!!! But I decided to share his photos with you. He is just such a great, beautiful and friendly cat. I fell in love with him at the first sight.

PINKY has been at the shelter for over a year now. She was adopted from the shelter when she was four months old by someone who made many promises to take her to the park for exercise, participate in training classes and love her forever. Unfortunately, none of these promises were kept. This loving, affectionate girl is so depressed without a family of her own. While she has been at the shelter, volunteers have taught her 7 different tricks! Rollover, high five, moonwalk, spin and shake, just to name a few.

Rumble the Puppy Bug

by Klara Hanincova

This morning I overheard two lady bugs that were polishing their dots in our garden talking about this strange but very cute bug that they saw as they were flying over the New Rochelle Humane Society the other day. Little they knew that the strange bug was little Rumble trying on his puppy bug Halloween costume….:)

If you are looking for a cute and a little silly puppy bug then do not look any further. Rumble is your bug!!!! ….:))


Would you like to have a dog that loves to play ball? If so, then May is a dog just for you.

May came to the New Rochelle Humane Society with her sister April. While April got adopted, May is still waiting for her new loving home.

May chases a ball, brings it back and if you give her a command “drop it” she will drop the ball right in front of your feet and wait in anticipation and excitement until you throw it again. She never gets tired of playing and she will do anything for the ball. Even jump into water.

 We made sure that May returned to her kennel nice and dry.
