Pet Projects: Mt. Vernon Shelter Needs Help

The Mount Vernon Animal Shelter is at capacity- and needs your help. We have two dogs to show you.
Cindy is a large mastiff mix with a heart of gold. Dark great color, this girl’s sad face will steal your heart in a split second. This isn’t Cindy’s first time at the shelter and to no fault of her own. Cindy’s bad luck began when her first family lost their home. Cindy spent over a year at the shelter and then her lucky day came, another family adopted her only to return within a year because they lost their home. Very sad as all Cindy wants is a home of her own. This big girl loves long, slow walks and walks great on a leash. She is not too fond of other dogs but is great with children as she has lived with children in both families. Cindy is also good with cats. Cindy is not too active, and just prefers to hang out and relax. She definitely would be an ideal couch potato. If you are looking for a calm dog who just likes to hang out, Cindy is your girl. Don’t let her size discourage you, Cindy is perfectly fine laying on her bed and cat napping for the day and that doesn’t take up too much space.
Coco was found over a year ago at her deceased loved one’s side. We could only imagine what Coco was feeling….scared, alone and confused. She came to the shelter and it was a rough start for her. She had a rough time with training program at first, but eventually she adjusted and now is one of our top students. We are very proud of Coco, we knew she could do it and we never gave up. Coco is a pitbull possibly french bulldog mix, medium size and would be perfect in a house or apartment. Coco would do best in a single dog home, no cats or young children. Coco needs an experienced dog owner who is active and patient. She does well one on one with her human and does have a high energy level. She loves praise and responds very well to it. She is very athletic in a yard and likes a long morning walk.
These dogs are available for adoption at the Mt. Vernon Animal Shelter, located at 600 Garden Avenue Mt. Vernon NY 10550. Telephone # 914-665-2444
