Meet Tyson Mcnubbins! Tyson was rescued from the streets of Sunset Park with a severe 'de-gloving' injury that caused half of his tail to be ripped off. Poor guy was in a lot of pain, so he was taken in to get his tail partially amputated, leaving behind a small bobtail-like 'nub' – hence the name Tyson McNubbins.
Tyson had a pretty tough first year of life, as evidenced by his tail, a scar on his eye, and his malnourished little body – but once he wasn’t hurting any more, Tyson’s sweet side totally came out! Pats and scratches and head bonks are part of this guy’s regular routine now. And when he’s happy, he wags his little nubbin’ back and forth. It’s pretty darn cute...
Tyson is still learning to trust humans, so he needs someone who is patient and willing to work with him to show him that life CAN be good to him. But he’s come SO far in just a month – even with the annoyance of having to wear the 'cone of shame' for a week.
He is currently in a foster home with a cat who is not very happy about his presence, but he has shown zero signs of aggression towards the cat, even when she hisses and growls at him. In fact, he seems to want to be friends with her in spite of her reluctance -- so he would probably flourish in a home with another cat who can help to continue bringing him out of his shell.

Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, Inc.
Our rescue group was formed in December 2007, but all our Board Members have had extensive experience rescuing and working with abandoned animals. We often work with other rescue organizations to find appropriate and safe foster and adoptive homes for our pet clients. We regularly go to areas with abandoned animals and collect them. The animals are taken to a licensed veterinarian examined, treated and spayed or neutered. Every effort is made to work with the animal and our foster and adoptive families to find a suitable forever home.
For those animals who are truly wild and feral, we release the animal in a safe and secure location after it has recovered from its medical treatment. We also work with certified wildlife rehabilitators to rescue injured and orphaned wildlife. Our organization is focused on improving the welfare of the abandoned animals in need of help in Brooklyn. In furthering that goal, our resources are focused on the animals.
Aside from a few minimal overhead costs such as our website and phone services, our entire budget is spent on animal care such as medical and food costs.
