Photographer publishes book to help NYC pets

photographer raises funds for homeless NYC petsA photographer from New Zealand has photographed New York City dogs and cats for a new book intended to help homeless NYC pets.

From CBS Local:

A photographer from New Zealand is using her photography to help dogs and cats living in shelters.

Felix the cat and Miracle the dog became best friends at the Humane Society of New York. The two were adopted together about a month ago into the same home, but returned to the shelter to pose for a photo shoot to help tell their success story.

Photographer Rachael Hale McKenna took the shots for her new book, “The New York Dog,” which is filled with pictures of more than 100 pooches from the five boroughs, many of them rescues.

McKenna chose the Humane Society to receive part of the proceeds of her book after being blown-away by the passion of these animal lovers.

“The hardest working, most animal loving and just so dedicated to be working with the animals and making sure they get the perfect homes,” she told CBS 2′s Cindy Hsu.

Bideawee animal shelter, New YorkMarch is a great time to adopt a new friend into the family. But March is definitely the time for New York cat and dog lovers to get Lucky –  literally! In honor of the Irish, the folks at Bideawee are naming all of their puppies and kittens “Lucky” and letting them go to a new home without a fee.

From Bideawee:
Getting Lucky means something different to everyone. To Bideawee and animal lovers everywhere, it means long walks in the park, lots of kisses in the morning and a warm snuggle when you get home.

In March, we’ve made getting Lucky as easy as possible by changing the names of all our loving dogs and cats that are 6 months and older to “Lucky.” And as luck would have it, Bideawee is letting pet lovers make Lucky a part of their family for free.

Your luck will run out on March 31st, so be sure to visit one of our adoption center locations in Manhattan or Westhamton to adopt your lucky one this month.

Of course, you’re also free to choose your own name once you adopt one of these Lucky ones. Once you bring them home…we consider you both Lucky.

Visit Bideawee online for more info or go there in person to get your Lucky little friend!

And, of course, after you bring your new buddy home, you’ll want a pet sitter in your corner. So give us a call and one of our pet sitters will come meet you and the new lucky love in your life.

NYPD canine police officerThe newest dog to join the ranks of the NYPD canine unit is a former military dog.

From

The New York Police Department is welcoming a newcomer that’s the first of his kind for the nation’s largest police department: a former military service dog.

The 4-year-old German shepherd named Caeser served three tours of duty overseas. Now he’ll be patrolling the New York City subways with Officer Juan Rodriguez.

The Defense Department has long made some of its retired dogs available to law enforcement agencies, but the NYPD hasn’t had one before. The arrangement saves the police force the $6,000 to $8,000 cost of training an inexperienced dog.
