About

Adorable Tickles came to us from a high-kill shelter in Georgia. A sweet, goofy 10 month old girl who will bring a smile to anyone's face!  She is currently 30lbs. Tickles is a GORGEOUS American Bulldog mix who LOVES people and just wants to snuggle all day long. She is extremely affectionate and loves hugs and kisses. Unfortunately she is not good around cats, and is selective with who her dogg friends are. But with the proper introduction, she can be playful and fun loving with another dog. If you are interested in adopting this adorable girl and have a dog, we must have a meet and greet to ensure the two get along well.

Tickles suffers from a rare disorder called megaesophagus, which is an enlargement of the esophagus that makes it difficult for her to swallow food. The disorder commonly results in vomiting, especially if the food gets into the dog's lungs. To prevent this Tickles must be fed standing upright to ensure that her food goes down properly.

Shelter Description

We are a new shelter (currently rescue group) and are looking for a location in Manhattan. We have just started rescuing cats and dogs and finding foster families for them until our shelter is built. We are a unique shelter, aiming to appeal to people who typically buy from pet stores and breeders. We will have a boutique as part of our shelter, all proceeds going back into the shelter (entirely nonprofit). We want to promote adoption in a positive and fun way. We have the same goal as other shelters- to find homeless dogs and cats their forever homes, but we want to change the stigma some people have towards shelters and its animals by creating a chic place that people will want to go to.

Shelter Driving Directions

Our animals are currently in foster homes, and we are organizing pop up store events so the animals can come and be seen.

Areas Served

New York, New Jersey, Connecticut; we would like to start pulling animals from municipal shelters in the south- we are connecting with some organizations

Adoption Instructions

Fees: Cat Adoption fee $150; Dog Adoption fee $200

We also have an adoption contract that must be signed. I (as the Executive Director), must interview each person wanting to adopt an animal and go over their application with them in person.

We are a new organization and are trying to find a location. In the meantime, we are accepting applications for fosters and adopters and have started rescuing cats and dogs.
