NYC ACC: ....Surrendered by a disabled veteran who was no longer able to care for these two"
Where is the Safety Net Program that is supposed to help people and pets in these kinds of circumstances??? The animals and their guardian have lost everything! This bonded pair must go together!!!
Why are these beauties still here? The oddest, yet cutest couple! please, please let's get them out!!! " What a sight, to see these two in a cage together… so cute!
PUMPKIN – A886325 – 3 yr old male pittie mix – 35lbs – OS, 1/9 – Can’t care for anymore – NO CONCERN!
KING – A886324 – 8 yr old male Min Pin – 10lbs – OS, 1/9
A Volunteer Wrote: Disney, do we have a story for you, playing out in our very own shelter: The adorable Pumpkin, a 3 year old petite 35 pound male, came in with King, #A886324, an extremely petite mini pincher. King is like an exclamation point of black to Pumpkin's beautiful white and brown self.
Surrendered by a disabled veteran who was no longer able to care for these two, they are now sharing a kennel at the shelter with utmost happiness. They are so bonded that when I went to take Pumpkin for a walk, he greeted all the other dogs with kisses through the kennel and then, after looking back to see that King wasn't with him, refused to go out the door. So off we went to get King, as well, and off we trotted so happily, all of us smiling to be together.
Pumpkin adores playing with King, who is a little more independent but is obviously most comfortable with his companion, as well. Pumpkin also loves climbing into his walker's lap and showering the walker with kisses of gratitude. He's just an amazing boy. It's amazing to me that someone has the opportunity to adopt not only one extraordinary dog (Pumpkin really makes us giddy with delight) but his companion, who is so tiny it wouldn't be difficult to make room for him, as well.
We're devoted to this pair, and we find the devotion that they share with each other absolutely inspiring. Please, won't you give them both a home?

You can go to www.nycacc.org. The phone that I have for NYCACC in Manhattan is 212-722-4939.
I think you have to keep pressing 0. I understand that they are hard to reach and don't call back.
Maybe best to get in touch with a NYC registered rescuer IF someone is required to pull the animal/s:
One would need to be screened and interviewed by the rescuer before the animal would be released.
Ideally private adoptions are probably the best. Actually going to the shelter often works best, unless
pull by a registered rescuer is required for certain specific animals.
