SAFE! PTS ANYTIME!! NY, Staten Island "Stevie" Blind Senior Lab X
STEVIE - ID#A0936880
Staten Island Center
SUPER URGENT 6/28/12
I am an unaltered male, chocolate Labrador Retriever mix.
The shelter staff think I am about 10 years old.
I weigh 95 pounds.
I was found in NY 11419.
I have been at the shelter since Jun 25, 2012.
He's a sweet, gentle and good boy who needs a helping hand. Stevie doesn't need much..a gentle heart, a helping hand and a place to lay his head. He will give back so much in return to whoever provides this for him. Please help this boy get out of the shelter and in to a home. Help Stevie by sharing him for a foster/adopter or rescue
RESCUE CONTACTS & INFORMATION for potential Fosters and Adopters, NYACC
DO NOT call and say you are adopting unless you truly intend on physically going to the shelter to adopt the dog. It ties up phones lines and is a waste of the staff's time to explain the adoption procedure over the phone for someone who is purposely not going to show up. They need every free second of their time to answer calls, assist actual adopters, process intakes, and care for the animals. More importantly, they will note the dog’s file that an adopter is en route which will prevent an actual adopter from saving the dog. This is considered a "fake adoption" hold and that is how dogs fall through the cracks and end up being killed.
Staten Island - 311 (212-639-9675 if outside of NYC) (hit 0 for operator, do not leave a message. May need to hit 0 a few times at the end of each cycle to keep their phone ringing)!
