Happy Tails: Harvey

11215713_482710218544084_7576672832097036901_n 10996518_482710205210752_1207603158060326417_n 11377313_482710191877420_5319736871208369337_n

Harvey was dumped at one of our vets. We offered to help the veterinarian in rehoming him and planned to show him at the Best Friends Adoption Event, but a potential adopter, Gina, who lives out on Long Island inquired after spotting him on the All Paws site. Gina had to have her cat put to sleep last February and is still devastated over the loss. He was also a rescue. She had an interest in adopting an older cat so Harvey fit the bill. He is about 13 years old and is a great, big Persian. Gina went to visit Harvey on two Saturdays. The rest is a love story.

Gina says “He follows me around and seems to really love one of my chihuahuas. I have four other furry family members. He fits right in just perfectly. He now has a forever home with me and I will make sure that he lives a happy life. He has already brought great joy into my life.”

A Plea for Julius


A few months ago we rescued Julius from a high kill shelter in NY. We were told he was healthy – however after picking him up we noticed that he was ill. After phone calls we were lucky to find a kind vet that was willing to care for Julius at cost price. Julius needed to have a feeding tube and other expensive procedures. Now he’s healthy and ready for his forever home. And we need to pay the vet bill.

He’s an adorable boy with a strong personality. He needs some socializing, a lot of time and patience but is quite the character and will make a great pet for someone who understands how to work with him.

Please donate – any amount would help – and share with your friends.

Thank you,

Happy Tail – Lovely Lily

Lilly (on the right) enjoying her fur-ever home

Lilly was found one freezing cold night outside about 4 winters ago by a woman who happened to see her as she was driving by in Brooklyn. She was covered in ice and shivering. This woman was a dog lover who had never had a cat before and didn’t know much about them, but she knew that if she didn’t rescue her from the cold she wouldn’t live through the night.

She had no idea how to get her into her car but fortunately the second she opened her door and called for her, Lilly jumped right in! Her rescuer contacted All Sentient Beings who then placed Lilly with a foster.

Nine months later Lilly was adopted! She is such a wise kitty. Tracey, her furr-ever mom says “now that I know her I’m not surprised she was smart enough to accept this kindness from a complete stranger.” Lilly is also an extremely gentle and affectionate cat. It was clear to everyone that she wasn’t feral. When living with her foster she was the only cat allowed to hang out with the dogs. She has such a calm demeanor and is extremely respectful to everyone she meets. “She really is the perfect cat,” says her mom, Tracey.

Within 2 days of bringing Lilly into Tracey’s home she felt comfortable leaving her alone with her cat and dog without supervision because they all got along so well from the start. She fit in perfectly, and quickly bonded with her other cat. They snuggle up together every day. “Lilly is such a special and beautiful being, and we all love and adore her so much!” says Tracey.

Hooray for Lilly!

Beautiful Clementine is living on the Street : UPDATED


UPDATED: Good news! Clementine has been rescued and adopted. Many thanks to all who helped.  More on her story will be posted in the future.

From one of our partners:

Clementine is so sad being out on the street.

Beautiful black and grey tabby with soft thick fur and green eyes is looking for the gift of a home this holiday.  She is very sweet and obviously not feral – probably lost or abandoned.  For the past few weeks, Clementine (named by the coffee shop staff)  has been seen regularly outside a coffee shop  She looks to be 8 or 9 years old, and in fairly good condtion. She is being fed 3 days a week by Ari, who works at Manhattanville. You can contact Ari directly at with a copy to

Thank you so much!

Happy Tail: Amber finds her Fur-ever Home


Amber is a very lucky kitty.  A kind “Posting Lady” (someone who posts pleas for rescue animals, online) found her in her Astoria, NY neighborhood and realized she was a friendly, good kitty who just needed to find a home.

She fed her, asked around for help and ASB came to her assistance. We paid for the vetting once Amber was trapped, which wasn’t too hard at all, being a hungry kitty who recognized a kind person. Then ASB found an equally kind and generous person way up in Boston who thought she could find her a home amongst her potential adopters up there.

We got the kitty a ride to Boston and next thing we knew, she had a home.

What a lucky cat: everything came together for her in ways it rarely does!

Socializing a Shy Cat

Catster has a very helpful article with tips on socializing a shy cat:

Have you had this experience? You’re thrilled about your new cat, and you’re anxious to give her the loving forever-home and warm lap you know she’s been yearning for. But as soon as you open the carrier, she flees. For days, you see no sign of her, except maybe some food missing from the dish or some pee in the litter box. Or maybe you start looking under furniture and, in the farthest, darkest corner under your sofa, you see a pair of terrified golden-green eyes staring at you.
