I am a sweet girl and very deserving of a loving and secure home. I had a rough start in life, giving birth to 10 puppies when I was a puppy myself of 7 months old! I am now 10 months old and going to be sterilized under Gerdy’s Rescues shortly. I was rescued by a concerned person from a bad situation as you can tell, and now I am a Gerdy dog, being vetted and everything done that I need, vaccines, etc. I am a mix of mainly Boxer mixed with Pitbull, I have a lovely nature, and will be so grateful to find people who will give me real love because I will love you forever. (No cats please.)


Hi, I have just been given up because not enough time for me anymore, sadly. I am already 8 years old, but you’d never guess that as I LOVE to play fetch the ball, your arm will get tired before I do! I need a securely fenced spacious yard for you to exercise me in, as well as take me for long walks, I need someone with TIME for me, I will help you keep fit in fact! If you like to run, I am your girl! I am obedient, I want to please you all the time, I DO listen! I bark when someone comes to the door to tell you someone is there, but I am nor a barker otherwise. I calm down as soon as people are inside. I don’t beg at the table either! Very calm in the house if I have been well exercised, no couch potatoes for me please. I need to be active with you! I am trustworthy of children, I like to sniff them when meeting and get acquainted. I love to swim, and I ran with my family when they cross country skied. Most of the time I am mellow when left in the house as long as I am exercised well first. I LOVE being petted but I am not super needy, just a nice companion dog. I come when called, even when I am playing. A I am nice, soft and I LOVE to cuddle! I am up to date with my vaccinations and in very good health, as well as heartworm negative and I am on heartworm preventative. My person said I am a mix of Lab, Collie, and Something Else, but I think I am a Beautiful Mutt, a good sized larger dog. Will you make me YOUR forever girl, my devotion is boundless!

  Minnie 2 - adoption pending  

I am a GORGEOUS and big female cat, a Domestic Shorthair and I LOVE to be cuddled & petted. I am DECLAWED. I am 2-3 years old, and STERILIZED. I have my vaccines. I was found outside about a year ago by someone and found a home, but there is now an allergy to cats so I came to Gerdy’s. I am a WONDERFULLY good natured girl, and so beautiful they say. In fact, I am DELICIOUS aren’t I? Can’t you see me in your home and devoted to you, and you devoted to me in return?


Hans is looking for a real home. He was found abandoned on a country road. We have had Hans neutered, vaccinated, and heartworm tested negative. Hans is about 7 to 8 years old, and is a VERY kind, affectionate dog. He is amazingly energetic, as is his breed, German Shorthair Pointer. A GOOD all around boy, eager to please. HOUSETRAINED, he LOVES the opportunity to lay on a rug. Very curious in the house but responds obediently to “ah ah!” when he checks out counter tops, etc. He needs to exercise, so a house with a securely fenced spacious yard would be ideal, if you play with him of course there. He loves to run about. Lots of walks will keep him happy too. Not for city living, and no cats please. We recommend a dog seat belt in the car as he would be up front with the driver in no time! He is very social & friendly! A jolly nature, Hans is the eternal optimist that he will find a home he so richly deserves!

  Sandy 2 - adoption pending  

Sandy 2 is a medium size 40 pound little female mutt who was found running loose by kind people and came to Gerdy's, very likely was dumped. Estimated age to be 2-3 years old. Sandy is very friendly and loves people. Interested in all around her, Sandy is a curious little girl who is all ears when checking out interesting smells on a walk, her ears stand straight up.
Affectionate, Sandy loves her walks. She has no food aggression. Great with other dogs, seems ok with cats. She is very friendly, loves to play, obedient, and very affectionate.

I have all the characteristics of a Scottish fold but the vet classified me as a multi colored semi longhaired tabby. Unfortunately, my ears are flat on my head the vet said due to hematoma from severe infestation of ear mites because I was lost or abandoned for a long time, also could be from frostbite. I landed up on the deck of a kindhearted couples house. They believed that I belonged to somebody, as I was wearing a collar, with no ID. They posted my cute puss everywhere in their area and also posted it on rescues " Lost& Found " websites. An " Earth Angel " saw the ad and donated medication for my ears. Then on top of this unbelievable act of kindness, she got me an
appt. at the vets !!!:-) Who made the diagnosis that also I am a Female, between 3-4 yrs. old and that I have been spayed. The couple took me in and gave me complete access to their cat haven in the basement, as they have 3 male cats that I do NOT want any contact with! They took care of the treatment for my ears and brought me back to the
veterinarian who gave me a clean bill of health. Yeahhhhhhhhhhh !!! I am so grateful for the support of complete strangers and the TLC that they have
given me. The sad part is that they CANNOT keep me even though I know they would love to as I am terrified of their other cats. I am a very affectionate, docile " Prima Donna " so I was named MISSY. I love to be brushed and petted. But not to be cuddled for too long as I still have a bit of anxiety, which I will overcome in a quiet loving, caring environment
without other animals. I am sweetness overload, look at my adorable face and please take me into your heart and home for a lifetime of purrrrrrrrrrrfect joy. I DESPERATELY NEED A HOME SOON!


I am a very friendly and active Greyhound Mix, a sweet natured boy. I am still a puppy at 6 months old, and I weigh 43 pounds. I have a slight, sleek build, and gorgeous blue eyes. I am a very affectionate boy, and I love the car too! I need to exercise so pretty well need a house with a securely fenced back yard where we can play and exercise together. We can
go for walks together too. Neutered and vaccines up to date, I am a handsome and loving boy whose soul shines through my every look, I am one in a million!

  Beejoo - adoption pending  

I am a deeply- loved purebred Black Lab girl who is a smaller built Lab than usual, rather petite and I am 7 years old. I am FULL OF LIFE, VERY well trained. Submissive with other dogs too. Very affectionate and I LOVE to swim! I am good with kids too. Very gentle taking a cookie but I would like to be left in peace to eat my meals! I am EXCELLENT in the car as well. My owners are placing me only due to illness, they cannot keep me any longer, so Gerdy is going to find me a new loving home. I am a super good dog in good health, spayed and vaccines up to date. I will make you a devoted friend for always, we can go for walks, car rides , and play together! I am one terrific girl and I will be your very best friend!

  Freddy - adoption pending  

This looker of a dog draws all eyes to his magnificent large head, absolutely dramatic! A 2 year old Rottie Mix, this is a VERY gentle boy, will be a good family dog, ESPECIALLY if there is another dog in the family,
as he grew up with his parents and a sibling and he misses them very much. Having a dog pal to play and hang out with would mean a lot to this guy, maybe a girl dog! He is friendly and so handsome! Neutered, vaccinated and heartworm tested negative, Freddy is ready to go to his new adoptive home.

  Hedley - adoption pending  

Hi Folks! I am a real LOVERBOY! I love the whole world, not a mean bone in me! I am 2 years old and 64 pounds of sweetness. A neutered pure BOXER male, I am vaccinated and heartworm tested negative. Impressive to look at, I am very handsome don't you agree? Everyone at Gerdy's is in love with me, and want me to have the happy life I so deserve.


I am a gentle 4 year old Lab Mix, spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative. A sweet natured girl, loving and crazy about belly rubs! I am HOUSETRAINED and I ask for the door! Very good with kids. I was picked on by the other dog in my home before, so they asked Gerdy to find me a new peaceful home. I'd enjoy being the only dog in the home this time. I walk
well when wearing a Gentle Leader, it was what was used to walk me. I had a food allergy in the past but do well on Pulsar dry dog food, the salmon& sweet potato one in particular, never had issues with that food so I was kept on it. I am a real sweetheart!

  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. Little Steve is the DEAREST dog, 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. Little Steve is a VERY SPECIAL NEEDS 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! He CANNOT be neutered because of his medical condition, so there can be no other dog in the home. Untried with cats. No small children as he needs a retirement atmosphere.

Call or email Gerdy to discuss Little Steve:

MINNIE is about a year old, a young mother, likely Roly (adopted) was 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.


This Shih Tzu mix is just under 2 years old. Teddy was abandoned because of a divorce in his family and has come to us with some trust issues but with love and patience he has come a long way. He is a very happy boy who loves playing with other dogs and loves to be busy with his toys. He is friendly and affectionate with humans, although he is hesitant with brisk movements.
Teddy loves his walks and follows nicely on the leash. He is independent and can be left alone (4-6 hrs.) during the day. He doesn’t mind his crate, is actually crate trained and is almost 100% housetrained. If you have experience with dogs, and have the time and patience to enhance his confidence, you will have a fun, loyal guy in your life. No cats (unless very used to dogs who want to engage in play). No young children. This is a great boy for the patient minded to work with!


I am an amazing Siberian Husky boy just turning 4 years old in September 2015. I am good with children of all ages and other BIG dogs, my previous owner told Gerdy. I was given up because they no longer had the time to care for me, and her husband did not like having a dog, so I am looking for a new forever home, but I loved my lady!
I am now neutered, vaccinated, vet examined, dewormed, heartworm tested. I have never bitten anyone, am HOUSETRAINED, and not possessive of food or people (unless you give me bones—not a good idea anyway as they can get stuck and then I’d need surgery, so let’s forget about bones!! I need someone with an active lifestyle as I am myself a very active dog, I need lots of walks!
Now understand that I am not very good with cats so NO CATS in the home, or SMALL, yappy dogs. I am too dignified to associate with them, I don’t want to live with them. But kids, YES, my former owner says I used to let the baby crawl all over me and I never objected. I NEVER bark, and I LOVE the outdoors (but don’t ask me to swim!) I LOVE cuddling, kids, and am SO affectionate. Being a Husky I would be a runner if I got out the door on my own if you do not exercise me enough, I need to be leash walked and have a securely fenced yard with a fence high enough for me not to get over, or an escape route from your yard, such as a hole in your fence. Otherwise I will be fine playing in the yard with you and will not look for a way out. Can I come and live with you please, FOREVER?



Beautiful and sweet MAYA is 13 years old, her owner passed away and Gerdy’s has taken in this GOOD dog. She needs a new forever home! She still has a lot of love to give. She appears to be a Golden Retriever Mix, spayed, vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, a very sweet girl looking for a peaceful retirement home. Is your heart big enough for Maya?

  T-Rex - adoption pending  

This little charmer was found abandoned in the woods! T-Rex is about 1 year old, a real charmer now in foster care, and a good little boy. Gerdy has had everything done for him, neutered, vaccinated, etc all set to go to a new loving home. He is a Yorkie Mix, slightly longer in the legs, but what a cuddler! One very fortunate wee boy, his future is now bright!

  Holly - adoption pending  

Holly is an approx. 1 year old, sweetheart of a dog. A terrier mix, weighing 10 lbs. Holly will melt into your arms and your heart. She is a bit timid at first but warms up very easily and is extremely affectionate with both men and women. She loves dogs as long as they are gentle and is a bit scared of cats but could probably adjust to a laid back cat who is used to dogs. Holly has been introduced to kids and was great as long as they are older (10 plus), respectful and patient. Holly would love a fenced in yard, as she adores roaming around the garden as well as a companion dog to hang out with and to help boost her confidence. She is housetrained, has tested negative for heart worm, is sterilized and vaccinated.



I am a very sweet neutered and vaccinated 13 year old boy whose beloved mistress has passed away. I was dearly loved and Gerdy promised me I would be loved again and would be safe. I am SUCH a sweet cattie, and I do not act my age! I am in good shape, I do my yoga exercises every morning and night. Maybe you & I can do them together! I am very cuddly and a very good listener to any troubles you may have, I also like classical music but not opera, just easy listening to go to sleep. All I need is a spot in the warm sun on your carpet or in a window, I will wait for you to come home from work and YOU can massage my toes after my hard day waiting for you to come back to me. I ask for nothing but your love and eats, maybe a few cat treats!

  Simon - adoption pending  

This handsome, sleek, and friendly to all cat needs a good home. He is a 2 year old black Domestic Shorthair, the hardest to place due to his color alone. Can YOU see beyond color to the happy nature of this delightful boy, who has all the attributes we all so admire in our cats? Playful, curious, intelligent, interested in all activity around him, loves to be held &
cuddled and a whiz at playing interactively with you with a toy on stick to try to catch! Likely will sleep near you if given the opportunity! And he is neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, all set to go. Simon had a hard start in life and deserves a break. A wonderful boy, a black cat is no different from any other cat but we find they are MORE appreciative of a home. Could
it be because they know how fortunate they are when they do find people seeing past the dark shade to the cat inside--just as loving and wanting to be treasured as any other cat out there. Please consider Simon because he is SO SPECIAL! Will YOU give him a well deserved home?


Bobby - adoption pending


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?



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!

  Molly - adoption pending  

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.

  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.
HOUSETRAINED and I am good in the car. Not hard to walk on leash! I have lovely soft eyes and wear my heart on my sleeve. 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! I am a healthy senior grey Domestic Shorthair cat, spayed and vaccinated, whose person was taken to a nursing home, and I was all alone in the world. 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.


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!


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?


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.
