  Crystal - adoption pending  

Crystal, is a 1 year old 34-pound, American Cocker (check out Parti Cockers), both beautiful and obedient. She was abandoned by someone with excellent intentions when she adopted Crystal as a 2 month old pup, but fell ill soon after and has not been able to give her the time and attention required for a young active dog. Crystal needs a stable environment in which to flourish and to help her get more comfortable with the outside world. She has started to love her walks but is not yet completely housebroken. Crystal is kind and gentle with all dogs, cats and humans regardless of their age or size. She needs structure, routine and in no time will be the joy of your household. Children 10 plus.

  Mia - adoption pending  

What a GREAT 5 year old girl I am--a very loving dog to all. AND I had come into Gerdy's VERY overweight from being given table food. I have now lost 16 pounds eating the proper amount of good dog food, have more to go but continuing my proper diet and you giving me exercise, I will be svelte in no time and the right weight for my size. Great family dog!

I am a DELIGHTFUL girl, a BORDER COLLIE mixed with LAB, wonderfully friendly and outgoing with a sweet nature. I have a stubby tail, docked when I was a
pup. I wag my butt as much as my little tail! Curious and friendly meeting other dogs. I am spayed, vaccinated,. Heartworm tested negative. My
different colored eyes make me a beauty to look at!

I was only given up to Gerdy because the wife was ill and the grandson allergic. Had Gerdy not taken me, I was headed to euthanasia by my people. I travel VERY WELL by car, I go to sleep in the back seat, ompletely
relaxed! A total DARLING that's me-- MIA!


  Toshi - adoption pending  

This adorable miniature poodle was rescued from a puppy mill seizure in 2009. She is currently 7 1/2 years old, sterilized, vaccinated, house trained. She is a shy sweetie who loves to be held and stay close to her person—she will follow you everywhere. She requires minimal exercise, and loves little walks. Toshi gets along well with cats and dogs, but can be the only animal. Her owner has fallen ill and can no longer take care of her and Toshi needs to bond to another person. A calm adult home would be ideal for this dollie.


I am a very sweet 26 pound male neutered Poodle Mix of 11 years of age, just the RIGHT age for an older couple, person, or mature family! I am told I am a VERY GOOD DOG! I am lovable, kind, and just needing a loving home to curl up in and make it my home Forever. All is done, vet check, vaccines, heartworm tested negative, dewormed, I am ready to go! My owner has moved away, could not take me too. I really deserve a home and I will make you very happy! Do you want to be BOBBY’s GIRL?

  Little Steve  

This sweet boy is Great Dane/Lab mix. When Gerdy took him on, he was dreadfully thin, after much testing it seems it is Irritable Bowel Syndrome. His treatment was changed and he has now gained the weight he should be and is doing well. He is on medication right now. Little Steve is the DEAREST dog, with no mean bones in him! He is relaxed and so loving, he waits to be petted, he enjoys attention so very much. He is a slightly older dog with some frost on his muzzle. Very devoted. We are searching for at least a foster home for him to get him into family life, but an Adoptive home would be GREAT. Little Steve is a VERY SPECIAL dog who knows he was helped and is so GRATEFUL, if you are a nurturing individual and want to help a deserving dog, Little Steve is the boy for you!

Call or email Gerdy to discuss Little Steve:

Dear Person looking for a good dog companion

I am an older Malemute and very good looking! Debonnaire, in fact! Sadly, my master died of a stroke in May, and now I am an orphan all alone in the world.. I am very healthy, have had all my shots, love people, children, cats and more. I have been in a kennel since May and now Gerdy has taken me over. I promise you a minimum of 4 good years of faithful companionship and if my Creator obliges, even more. I'm looking for peace and quiet with a peace and quiet person or return I promise unconditional love!

Your orphan, Lucky xoxoxo

  Mimi (formery Che)  


I am a 9 year old girl who is full of LOVE! I am spayed and have never been outside, so I am looking for a home as an indoor cat. I am a Domestic Shorthair in a pretty color called BLUE CREAM. I was brought to the Hudson
Pet Fair June 20, 2015 in desperation to find me a safe new home, no one there would take me, but Gerdy did, thank goodness! I am REALLY scared of dogs, I have had a bad experience that left me afraid of dogs, so please, a cat family or making me an only pet would be great! Maybe you are retired and need some company, I'm your girl! I PROMISE you that you will never regret your decision to give me a home with YOU. PLEASE!


Delightful 8 year old Molly is a sweet-natured and playful tri-coloured spayed and vaccinated Basset
Hound. This loving dog enjoys sitting on laps (even if bigger than your average lap dog!) and chewing on her favourite toys. And of course the Basset favourite occupation--taking long walks on leash. She's never met a person she didn't greet enthusiastically with affection! This beauty needs a Basset-familiar family
ideally and of course as she is a Hound, a securely fenced yard to play in is essential, because Bassets have such a strong sense of smell they would follow a scent and not look back! A home with someone home during the day for company is ideal for a Basset, as they are very social and love to be around their humans! Crating when you are out or at night is
suggested. Good Golly, Miss Molly--Bassets ROCK!

*Previous Basset Owners Need Only Apply*. Molly needs a home where the people know the breed.

  Maddix - adoption pending  

Maddix was going to be euthanized at a gassing pound, his owner did not want him so dumped him there to get rid of him. He was saved from euthanasia and made his way to Gerdy’s Rescues.. Maddix is a cheerful BIG boy at 89 pounds. He is a male German Shepherd X, brindle in color. Born January 29, 2011 he is neutered, heartworm tested negative,dewormed, vaccinated. He does not like to be crated, we believe he had a bad experience with that. Maddix is good in the car, loves to go for a drive! He needs obedience training as he is so large, but is a handsome and big hearted guy. A dog for older teens 16+, not young kids. When Maddix gets trained, he is going to be a fantastic dog. Maddix thinks he is a lapdog! Affectionate, HOUSETRAINED, Insecure but friendly, he gets over his shyness quickly. Loves to play fetch. No food aggression, outgoing personality interested in everything.

  Layla - adoption pending  

Beautiful Layla is a pure Doberman about 6 years old. She is spayed, up to date in her vaccines, and heartworm tested negative. She is HOUSETRAINED.
ONLY FOR DOBERMAN EXPERIENCED people who understand the breed and how to properly handle them. As she will chase squirrels if given the chance,
please no other small animals in the home. Very sweet nature, and gentle. Layla has a thyroid condition and requires a daily pill to manage that but you can give it to her no problem, and it is not expensive. She needs it daily though, so if you cannot do this consistently, please do not ask to adopt her! We'd like to see her in an adult family with a fenced in yard, where she will feel secure. Not a city home full of noise and traffic,
would suit her best. And she likes being in the car with you!

  Brovko - adoption pending  

COMPASSIONATE PLACEMENT WITH DONATION10 years young and looking for a loving retirement home, I am a SUPER loving boy, given up because of frequent travel, they are not home enough. Almost human-like, I am SUPER LOVING, adore people and I love attention.

A trusting boy, I need someone to love me enough to keep me the rest of my days, I am a loyal boy and you'd never regret it. I am a Lab Mix mutt, one ear up & one down especially when curious! Neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative,
and I love to walk on leash. Just one thing--I was diagnosed with a form of diabetes that has been corrected with a daily pill I must take. I need to
take this pill every day and I will be fine. Discuss this with Gerdy.
We at Gerdy's are told he is extremely patient, good with kids, never showed people any aggression. Brovko is nicely energetic and very well behaved. And young at heart!




Well Folks, I am 15 years young with DOUBLE THUMBS Born March 30, 2000, I do not look or act my age, and I am not ready to give up on life!

Gerdy has known me personally and vouches for me that I am a VERY NICE cat who
needs a retirement home for the rest of my happy life. Gerdy would be thrilled and it would make her friend in the nursing home so pleased to know Hoppy is loved again.

I am an AMAZING cat—highly intelligent, and tremendously interested in all you do, I love to watch you make things, and in case I might miss something I will follow you about the home!
I have to watch you cook as it is so fascinating watching you chop, mix, and create, and I LOVE to watch you do the dishes, now THAT is so fascinating, and if you don’t mind, I will even keep you company watching you splash in the water taking your bath! People are so INTERESTING. Oh yes, I am very PLAYFUL and I ADORE playing hide and seek, and I might add that I am an expert player at that! You will find me great in the car, travelling in my carrier to the vet, and the vet can handle me with ease when I am examined. Oh, and the thing I just LOVE to do is sit in a window and watch the birds play outside and the squirrels run about. I am a VERY loving cat with humans and BIG but CALM dogs, please no little dogs -- I am not wanting to share a home with other cats, and noisy kids. I have the temperament of an Artiste, and all you need is ME! My coat is gorgeous, silky white gleaming coat and glorious GREEN eyes. I am SO affectionate, you can cuddle me while you watch tv! Tested FelV/FIV negative, vaccinated, dewormed, no fleas, and spayed—I am good to go! My suitcase is packed! Born June 18, 2013, i have my claws but if my claws are kept clipped and I am provided with a scratching post I will not rake your furniture. Hard to believe now that I was found wandering the streets at 6 months old, frozen and starved, I guess that is why I long for a private home where I can bask in the sunshine of all your love! PLEASE GIVE ME A HOME?



Hi, I am a 6 year old male Family Dog, Lab/Huskey cross breed, sterilized, and vaccinated.
I LOVE being petted and I give kisses! I am curious, energetic, affectionate and welcoming when people visit. I eat hypoallergenic food and LOVE Brocolli, apples, and salad! I take a Thyroid pill once a day that I need the rest of my life, but it is inexpensive and no problem to give me.
I do not like to be crated but I do well in the house loose. My days are like nights—I eat, sleep, walk about the house without problems, I am well adjusted. But if you leave me TOO long in the house I might peepee but I am housetrained for a reasonable time of absence. I am not in regular contact with other dogs but with grooming during the year I am around other dogs and I am fine.
I am good with children, I like to lick their faces, not a mean bone in me! I have a lot to give a family who will cherish my qualities, my owner can no longer keep me, and she told me Gerdy will find me a GREAT new home. I am just the RIGHT age—and what you see is what you get! A loving boy offering you my heart for the rest of my days!

This handsome 5 year old boy is DESPERATELY seeking a home that will take this FIV positive cat! His time is running out to be placed soon! VERY INTELLIGENT, and he LOVES to be brushed. He spent all his life outside as a stray, but a quiet INDOOR life is what he needs now. Reserved and scared when he first meets someone new, but soon his affectionate nature shines through, then he is rolling on his back and giving head butts. HE HAS EXTRA THUMBS, and uses them well to chase his toy mouse. He gets vocal when hungry too! He is NEUTERED & VACCINATED and ready to start a new life in a quiet home. He is a Domestic Longhair, just LOOK at that FACE!


I am a senior Golden Retriever 9 years old female, spayed and vaccinated. I hit a rough patch in my life when my elderly human passed away in the house
and finally the police arrived and took him away. No one gave ME a second look. No one saw the huge abcess on my side or the condition I was in physically because my human had not been able to care for me properly. I was DREADFULLY overweight too, not the pretty girl you see here in the photo. I was a MESS! Oh, did I say that the police removed me from the house and tied me up in my yard when they left? I was there for a few days before someone noticed me tied up there on a tether. I was not a well girl. Gerdy
took me over and it took a LONG time for my abcess to get better after surgery, because I kept opening it up even with a head cone. With one thing and another it has taken me a long time and even now I need a VERY special new human in my life. I choose my dog friends! I have not had an easy life and much socialization, basically I have relied on myself all those sad years my person could not look after me properly. I will need no other pets in my new home, no kids. I am a rather independAnt dog used to doing things
my way. Because I need help restructuring my life socially. I need someone who will work patiently with me, leaving me to myself when I want to be, and
understanding I am a work in progress. I am rather opinionated. If you are a confident and patient person interested in helping me socially, please contact Gerdy. I am spayed, vaccinated, heartworm negative.


I am a Lab Mix male, about 20 months old, fully trained and good, loving, and smart my previous owner said. I am neutered and up to date on vaccines. My owner could not keep me as he travels on business too much and wants me to have a good life with regular attention from my family. He said this about me: That I am very caring and friendly with kids and adults. That I like to play a lot. Shy with other dogs who get close to me, I sniff and move on but if the other dog growls, I will growl but not fight back. I am not fond of water so forget me wanting to go swimming with you! I am friendly with strangers, shy at the beginning but I come around. No food possession problems, I love to give kisses. I am not familiar with cats, I never had one. I am used to being crated when you are at work, and do not soil my crate, I will wait for you to come home and take me out. And that I never hurt anyone or any other dogs. I am rather a large boy and VERY handsome and SWEET! Some people collect fancy cars but only YOU will have THIS Bentley all to yourself!

I am a sweet 7 month old AMERICAN STAFFORDSHIRE TERRIER a very dear Pitbull boy, neutered and vaccinated. I am very energetic and playful but my best feature is that I am SUPER AFFECTIONATE! I give LOTS of kisses! I have lived with an older dog just fine and a cat. I chase her to play but she is old and will have none of my desire to play with her! I am a wonderful boy. I am looking for a loving Pitbull experienced home where I will be treasured as a family member. Having any puppy in a home is like having a new baby, so if you are busy with young kids, you have enough to keep you busy. Also being in a crate all day while you work is not fun for a pup, I need to go out more frequently than a mature dog. I would likely love a puppy training class and lots of walks as I am very sociable. This handsome boy (ME) is waiting not too patiently for my match made in Heaven!


MINNIE is about a year old, a young mother, likely Roly (below) is her only surviving kitten. They were outside together, abandoned, in the cold. Roly was about 3 weeks old at the time, when taken in by a kind woman who called Gerdy. Minnie was vaccinated and sterilized by Gerdy’s. But Minnie is tired of the stress of keeping a kitten alive in the cold so has sworn off even being around other cats! Minnie is a Domestic Shorthair, and is looking for a quiet home where she can just relax for a change! She is an affectionate cat.


Here I am as a sad case, brought to Gerdy’s care as a stray cat with frozen feet. This is what happens to a stray in winter weather with no warm home to go to.
I am about 4 years old, estimated birth date December 2010 and I weighed 10 ½ pounds when I was brought in. I am a Domestic Shorthair male. To add to my troubles, I was found to be FIV positive. I can still comfortably live in a home with another FIV cat, I am doing good, it was just my feet being frozen that bothered me. Now my bandages are all off and I am much happier, neutered too! I am a NICE cat!

Do you have a warm heart I can warm my cold feet with in future, safe and loved?


This female silver Toy Poodle mix is mini size-- only 6 pounds-- and about 3 years old, born February 19, 2012. She is sterilized and vaccinated, all done up to date. Because of her size, NO other pets, NO small children, and ONLY a kind and patient adult family, preferably someone already familiar with the fears of a very small dog. She had been abandoned by her owner, so this dear little girl is very nervous, She needs to be babied with all that has happened to her, she is NOT a social butterfly! Becomes a bundle of aggressive Little Dog Syndrome if on leash around bigger dogs, in ready defence of her person. Would snap at a stranger trying to pet her, again fear because of her size. She does not bark but sometimes has a high pitched howl, somewhat like a doggie opera singer, instead! NO apartment or condo for Sadie! She is pee pad trained but will go outside but can never be out alone, she is fearful of the big bad world out there. She needs a protector type who will understand her doggy fears and will shelter her from them. She has had a hard time in her short life and needs reassurance.
Have YOU what Sadie needs to give her confidence in humans again?


That's what Gerdy's named me.  Someone dumped me on the south shore, and I was seen wandering for at least 2 week outdoors.  A kind woman tried to help me, but I was too wary to go to her and frightened. Finally I was at a pound, I was skinny and weak from this ordeal outdoors, I would have been euthanized as I was not in good shape at all when Gerdy called them, but I was released to the care of Gerdy's.  

The vet thinks I am 5-6 years old. I have a very bad ear infection being treated at present as well as a skin problem also being treated BUT I am otherwise in good health.  I will be neutered as soon as Gerdy can get it done when I am ready, also my vaccines.

I am heartworm tested negative.  I am on the small size for a GSD, they think I might have been a runt, but who knows?  I am 70 pounds and underweight. But I am SO good natured even though I don't understand what happened to me.  

I am now with people I trust and my broken heart is healing nicely. I am MUCH better looking than when I was helplessly wandering, getting good food and the best of care.  Thank you Gerdy donors. This is where your donations are going, right where NEEDED the most!


Checkers, now about 3 years old, was fed as a stray kitten outside by Gerdy’s Aunt. Eventually, he was caught, neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and defleaed, so he could have a chance at life as an indoor cat. 

Checkers would do really well in an adult home where he could just be allowed to be himself, study his situation, and build trust—each has great potential, and just needs a chance! 

It would help if he was the only pet in the house, but Checkers does get along with other cats.  In his foster home, Checkers is learning that life inside is much better than in the streets! 

Checkers is just glad to be taken indoors out of the cold so just a bit of PATIENCE on your part will make all the difference!

I am a black and white adorable male, neutered cat, 1-1 1/2 years old. I had all of my shots and a clean bill of health. I was abandoned recently and suffered a great deal. When you first see me I am a little afraid but within a short space of time I will allow you to stroke me if you are gentle. I am looking for a loving couple that will give me the nurturing and love that I have not had in a long time. I sleep in my bed or yours and love to play.
You will adore me at first sight, and all I look for is a couple or a family to be a part of again. I need a family to love! An affectionate human hand to make me belong once more. I will never let you down!

These 2 kittens are 5 months old and LOVE to play together, so much so it would be a shame to split them up!

They are going to be sterilized April 19, 2014.  Calico is a girl, Blackie is a boy and they're brother and sister. 

They are both  longhaired domestic kittens.   Vaccinated.  Affectionate & adorable, well socialized, and nicely playful.
