I am a 7 year old spayed female Mini-Poodle looking for a new forever home. I am excellent with children and not a biter. Loyal, lovable, and gentle at all times, I listen to commands and am housetrained. I LOVE to be cuddled, I can be a barker at times so a house is best for me rather than an apartment or condo. I am on a lifetime diet of SO vet prescription food, wet and dry, and it needs to continue. I am friendly to other dogs but I choose my friend dogs carefully, so I am comfortable with them being around me playing, knowing I will not get hurt. I tend to chew at my collar tags my foster mom says, which is my ONLY vice! I am a DEAR dog all around, so affectionate, and just waiting for YOU!

   
     
  T-Rex  
     
   

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  
     
   

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  
     
   

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?

  Moustache - adoption pending  
     
   

Moustache is a sweet and affectionate purebred miniature Schnauzer. She is 9 + years old, loves her walks, is housetrained and overall a really great dog!
Moustache is not a barker, can live in an apt. or condo, loves the car and is AMAZING with kids.
This pretty girl weighs 14 pounds. She is afraid of thunder, so will need extra cuddles, and she prefers a diet of soft food. She is spayed and her basic shots are up to date.

   
     
  Teddy  
     
   

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!

   
     
  Bobby  
     
   

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!

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 persons..in return I promise unconditional love!

Your orphan, Lucky xoxoxo

COMPASSIONATE PLACEMENT WITH DONATION

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.

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.

   
     
  Oscar  
     
   

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!

   
     
  Meadow  
     
   

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.

   
     
  Bentley  
     
   

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  
     
   

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.

   
     
  Fred  
     
   

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?

   
     
  Sadie  
     
   

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  
     
   

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.
