Meet Margie!  This precious little senior beagle came to us from a local shelter just last week.  Our poor girl looks like she could have been abused -- definitely neglected. 💔💔 She is covered in scars and has a slight limp.  But don't let any of this deter you!  She is seriously the sweetest dog in town. 😉 And because of that, she'd probably do best in a quiet home full of love so she can relax during her retirement years.  Who can blame her?  And even better, she doesn't seem to be bothered by cats or dogs.  In fact, she is currently rooming with another pup at the shelter and all is going well.  They just went on a walk together around the block.  Adorable!  To meet Margie, please visit us at 200 Centre Street in NYC Tuesday-Sunday between 12 and 6pm.  She is waiting for you.  #animalhaven #beagle #seniordog #seniorbeagle #beagles #adoptdontshop #rescuebeaglesofinstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedog #dogsofinstagram #beaglesofinstagram #beaglesofinsta #adoption #seniordogs #seniordogsrule #beaglesrock #beaglesrule

Looking for some #GoodNewsTues? Meet 7-month-old Maní! He arrived a few weeks ago from Costa Rica, by way of our friends at @rivierarescue in Mexico. His rescuer saved him at around 2 months old (OMG swipe for his baby pics!!) and he's been looking for an adoptive family ever since.

Maní was born with front legs that aren't fully developed. Despite his physical differences, Maní has learned to scoot around really well, and even sits up on his hind legs when he begs for treats or attention! He is extremely social with both dogs and people, and LOVES to play.

We're currently exploring the best prosthetic option for Maní to improve his mobility and comfort. We can't wait to see this happy boy on four legs!

When a Good Samaritan found this itty bitty kitten crying and alone last week, she brought him to Animal Haven for help. Only days old, he wouldn’t survive without round-the clock feedings and care. One of our staff members jumped in and took little Mingus into foster, where she’s been hand-feeding him every two hours (yes, that means throughout the night!) His latest milestone: Mingus opened his eyes and is starting to play! He’s about two weeks old now and cute-as-a-button. Mingus still has about 6 more weeks of care before he’ll be ready for adoption but, in the meantime, he’s getting all the love and care a neonatal kitten needs to thrive!!

Oh hai. 😍

This wee gal just arrived after being rescued from a hoarding situation, along with her litter mates. She is not - we repeat, she is not - yet ready for adoption. Little buddy still needs to grow and will be ready once she’s old enough to be vaccinated (another few weeks). But this insanely cute face was too good not to share, heading into the weekend. Happy Friday!

💕Special Kitties Alert!💕 Bolognese, a 6-month-old kitten, has spent most of her life at Animal Haven with her sister Pesto. After arriving at our shelter, we quickly found out they were FeLV positive, meaning they live with an infection called Feline Leukemia Virus. We won't sugar coat it - FeLV is incurable, and most cats don't live more than a few years after they're diagnosed.

But Bolognese and Pesto deserve a warm, loving home for whatever time they have left in this life. They are happy, bouncy kittens (albeit a wee bit shy), and they love to play with feather toys, yarn balls and most of all - each other!

We're looking for a fospice home for Bolognese and Pesto where they can live out their days with love. Because FeLV is contagious to other cats, they'll need to be the only felines in your home (but it's not contagious to dogs, other animals or people!). If you're interested in welcoming Bolognese and Pesto into your home, please email us at dogsandcats@ah-nyc.org!

Meet Lotus! She's a 7-month-old terrier mix rescued from an illegal Asian dog meat farm at only 3 WEEKS OLD (swipe for pic), and she arrived at Animal Haven this week. Luckily, when Lotus was saved, her rescuers were able to shut down the meat farm completely! She's safely at Animal Haven now and ready for her new life. Happy and energetic, Lotus loves to buzz around the room using her nose to gather information. Though a bit shy at first, she warms up quickly and walks really well on a leash. Adopt Lotus!

CHEF NEEDS YOUR HELP! When 3-month-old Chef arrived at Animal Haven, we didn't think she'd make it through the night. She had an upper respiratory infection so bad that one of her tiny eyes had ruptured, and on top of that, she was severely hypothermic, shaking, and anemic from a flea infestation. This tiny girl was in horrific shape.

We rushed her to the vet, where we feared we might have to say goodbye. But we knew we had to give her a chance. With some compassionate overnight care, medicine and fluids, Chef began to perk up. Her body temperature warmed and she began breathing regularly.

Chef is now back at Animal Haven, where she's receiving lots of love, frequent hand feedings and subcutaneous fluids to ensure she stays hydrated. Once she's healthy enough, her right eye will need to be surgically removed, but we're hopeful she'll be able to live a long, happy life in a loving home. Chef isn't quite out of the woods yet, but with your help, we can continue giving Chef the fighting chance she deserves. Click the link in our bio to donate, or find us on Venmo @animalhaven. 💜

There are lots of 'Wednesday' traditions - wearing pink, pushing through #humpday and celebrating our #WCW. On Wednesdays at Animal Haven, we snuggle puppies! Ok, ok, so we do that most days, but today we're snuggling 4-month-old Chica! She just arrived to us from Antigua and we're already mildly obsessed. Chica's zest for life is quite enviable - she's simply a joy to be around! Want your own precious pup to snuggle at home? Come meet Chica at Animal Haven!
