Smokey, Dog Who Lived in Shelter Since 1997, Has a Home!


Last week I posted on Patch an appeal for a home for Smoke. Smokey is a cute dog who has lived at the Elmsford Animal Shelter (now called Pets Alive) since 1997. He never had a home. I learned about Smokey when I dropped off my daughter, Julia, at the shelter. My daughter and a friend are volunteering their time at this incredible organization that helps pets.

SOME GOOD NEWS -- SMOKEY WENT HOME TODAY. He is not homeless anymore -- and has a caring family. I received the following e-mail from a constituent who gave me the good news. Smokey is lucky. There are many other dogs at the shelter (also senior citizen dogs) who need a home. Please help!

Please let your daughter know that today Smokey went home. He was surrendered as a puppy in 1997 and has been there since. Get on the petsalivewest.com website and follow the twitter. There is a pic with his caretaker of many years saying "goodbye." Thank you for all you do and all you have done for Pets Alive Westchester. There are several hundred more animals that need homes.

Adopting a shelter pet is always an act of love, but Smoky's new owner must be quite the extraordinary person. Wishing them much happiness together!!
