This is my Jack. She has been my constant companion for the last 16 years. She is my best friend, my confidant, my nurse and my rock. I just wanted to thank you all for taking a chance with adopting a cat to twenty something year old girl with no experience of her own.

My only real experience with pet care was what I was taught at home. Luckily, my mother laid a clear path of what responsible pet care truly meant. So when I walked in your doors to find my new friend all I could say was "I live on my own now and my life is just empty without a cat to love.".
I didn't want a kitten, I wanted an older cat. When I was shown to the room with the older cats I started having doubts about which cat to choose. Silly human, I know that now.
Jack (or Jax as she was named then) saw me coming. When I got to her cage, she got up and stretched as if to say, "well it took you long enough, let's go home.". I opened the cage and she crawled onto my shoulder as if she belonged there. I felt the click instantaneously!!

I immediately filled out the paperwork and got the necessary signatures. I was back to take her home within a few days. We have been together ever since that day!

Over the years, our little duo has grown into a much larger family. Jack and I now have my husband and our 2 children, 2 dogs and most recently a new cat. We have moved from a tiny little apartment on Long Island to an acre of property on the coast of North Carolina.

We will be together 16 years this coming March and I believe there will be many more happy years to come. Thank you for allowing me to adopt her all those years ago. The joy and happiness I have experienced with my beloved Jack is immeasurable.

Logan was found in his ripe old age just roaming the streets over this past summer.  He was a gentle soul from the start and it was only a matter of time before an amazing couple came in looking for a senior dog to spoil.  Look at these photos...this dude has the life!    
From the start, he made himself right at home. 

Happy holidays!  Enjoy your pajama time!

Samantha, all settled in her new home with her brother, Bernie.  

York is part of the fam!

Hi there! 
We adopted little kitten, Cindy. She adjusted to the new home and our resident cat pretty quick. Less than a week she's already a lap kitty and playing with her big sis, Harlem. She's such a sweet little baby. She came in to sleep in between me and my fiancĂ© at night. We renamed her "York". I am just sending you some pictures to share so far. We are so thankful for you and everyone at the HSNY, for all the great work that you do.
