Our Featured Pet...
PLEASE!! Someone out there HELP ME!! I don't want to be in this cage any more... I started life off abandoned and whisked off to a shelter. I spent days, weeks....months just sitting in a cage wondering if it was MY TURN! I've always been a good boy, and everyone tells me I'm very handsome but I guess that's just not enough)o; The kind people at Fur Babies Rescue and Referral Inc. pulled me from the shelter and gave me a loving foster home to call me own when I was about 4 mos old. I enjoyed nothing more than cuddling with my foster family and playing with the other dogs. I was eventually adopted by a family who kept me for several months but then decided I needed more than what they could give. I'm a puppy so I have energy I love to play and run! Now because of lack of foster space I'm at a boarding facility....it's very much like the shelter, loud and no comforts of home. I have a cage and a run that I can go out in a few times a day to stretch my legs and play. The people here are really nice to me and they can't understand why no one wants me.... They say I am good with other dogs, submissive, eager to learn and just a super happy puppy. Of course I'm happy when I see them! It means I will get some loving and out of the cage for a while!! I went to puppy obedience classes at petco and I love to go for walks. At 10 mos old I'm still very much a puppy and I pray every night that I will have a family to call my own again real soon! Please give me a chance!! Help me to get out of this cage and into a comfy warm home...I want to forget this feeling, I want to forget what it is like to be here and only build happy memories with my new people!! I WANT TO GO HOME!! Thank you so much for trying to help me!! LOVE xoxo OZZY ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAg1uf-Si2k ) For an application to foster or adopt please email Kris at email@example.com PLEASE SHARE!!!!!!

Who We Are
Fur Babies is a small no kill rescue group. We will keep all our dogs/cats until a loving home is found for them. We are devoted to saving dogs/cats in need. Many of our dogs/cats have been abandoned and/or have literally been found by our volunteers and good samaritans on the streets of NY, NJ and CT. We have also rescued dogs from the Center for Animal Care and Control (CACC), the New Haven Animal Shelter CT, The Town of Hempstead and the Smithtown Animal Shelter. All of our dogs/cats are given full medical exams including all of the necessary innoculations. All dogs are tested for heartworm and put on preventative. Any treatment for illness or injury is provided. In addition, all dogs/cats are spayed/neutered prior to being made available for adoption and most of our seniors have a wellness profile done. Most of our rescues are kept in loving foster homes until they are adopted so we can tell you as much as possible about their personalities. To donate please visit:
Adopting a friend
One of the most frequently asked questions is regarding the mix of the dog. Generally, when a dog is first brought in, the vet gives a general idea of the mix of the dog. Also, the input of volunteers is considered. We can never know for certain what mix a dog that has been living in the streets is exactly. However, we do give you our "best guess". The best thing to do, is to come out and meet our dogs. Their personalities will charm you, regardless of their mix!
All perspective adoptors must fill out our application, giving references and info. on their home and family. We also do home checks and ask for vet references. Fur Babies must ask a donation at the time of adoption, in order for us to continue our rescue work. The fee is $275 for a mixed breed pup over 6 mos. We ask $400 in the event that we adopt out a rescued pure breed (or designer breed) dog or puppy. (We have rescued many pure breeds and designer breeds, although the majority are mixed breed dogs.) Puppies under 6 mos we ask for a $300 donation. For cats we ask a $50 donation. We further ask that all adoption fees be cash.
