Here’s Carson and Misty, ready to be adopted

Carson arrived at the shelter as a stray – scared and sick.

This 1-year-old boy has bloomed in foster care – he loves playing fetch with tennis balls and loves kids. He’s a smart dog and knows some basic commands. This medium-sized boy is also crate trained.

Carson prefers to be the only pet in the home.

Misty is a sweet, beautiful cat in the care of Northeast Animal Rescue.

She likes to play with toys, especially mice and balls, and get cuddles from her foster mom. She enjoys spending time with people.

Misty, 3, is spayed and current on vaccinations, and has tested negative for the feline leukemia and immunodeficiency viruses.
