I couldn't be happier to pass Dog House Adoptions' Presidential torch to Brittany DeJohn! And she couldn't be happier to accept, eagerly learning (for 3+ hours this morning to start) the ins and outs of presiding over our organization.

It has been a true honor to serve on this board and I rest easier knowing I am leaving the management of DHA in the caring, capable hands of our most dedicated board members. I especially want to thank our most knowledgeable and longest-standing founding member, Audra Bentley, for taking charge while Brittany gets up to speed.

Rest assured, I believe in this organization too much to leave for good. My name is staying on the volunteer roster and I'll be helping out with IT and advisement once the task of transition is complete. Mine is not a goodbye, but a "HELLO!" to the good people who will carry on with the positive energy and camaraderie that has helped 113 dogs in our backyard of New York's Capital Region since April 13th, 2012!

GO TEAM!

All the best,
+Kim Clune

Daisy’s pretty petals are many. Of course, with her blue and brown eyes, she’s gorgeous – but her beauty runs deep.

FOR ADOPTION IN TROY, NY - Copper Coonhound and Circus Clown Mix, 6 Month Female, Spayed, Vaccinated, Microchipped and House Trained

Gracie is a bouncing 6-month-old bundle of Coonhound mix sunshine with a goofy energy who brings joy to all she meets. She’s wiggly and wobbly, like a slinky, with the energy of a wind up toy – highly active until the spring quickly unwinds. She is also sweetly even-tempered, great with the dogs, kids, cats, ad adults she used to live with. She’s even kind to strangers.

Gracie’s appreciation for affection can settle her pouncing puppiness to a sit with a quick scratch under the chin. She’ll require typical puppy training for basic commands and leash walking, but her eagerness to please will go a long, long way. She makes beautiful, adoring eye contact, indicating an eagerness to please, and she’s already house trained and crate trained, so far.

Gracie and her twin brother Solomon were surrendered from a household with too many animals. Typically, we don’t recommend that two puppies from the same litter are homed together, but these two are so sweet and kind to people and to each other that we would gladly do so. Of course, they can also be given their own special homes where each is the sole recipient of love and devotion.

FOR ADOPTION IN TROY, NY - PLEASE SHARE!

Oreo is just a year and a half old Havanese and was found roaming the streets of Schenectady just prior to Memorial Day Weekend. He was never claimed at the end of his 5 day stay hold.

Oreo is a real doll and he loves, loves, loves people. He’ll snuggle into the crook of your arm, kiss your face and follow you to the ends of the earth.

What doesn’t he love? Little dogs. Medium sized dogs. Big dogs. Oreo is an equal opportunity dog non-lover.

He’s leash trained, crate trained, even tempered, eager to please, and does great in the car. He can bum around with you anywhere you go, but for where other dogs are. (Did we mention that he really doesn’t like other dogs?)

As long as you love dogs and don’t mind a dog that doesn’t, Oreo is your fella!

ADOPT or FOSTER Molly! This little Dalmatian mix needs mollycoddling in Troy, NY. Owner just passed.

Molly’s Happy Holiday History

Molly, a starved 10-month-old stray in West Virginia, had just been rescued when Carol, a resident of Colonie, NY, saw her on the internet. That was in November of 2009. Carol said, "I only knew she was cute as can be."

It took a month of coordination between transport volunteers — and even a volunteer pilot — to get Molly into her new home for the holidays. Despite heavy snow and a plane malfunction, Molly made it just in time for 5 o’clock dinner on Christmas Eve, one full month after Carol spotted her.

You can read the whole heartwarming story in the Capital District Senior Spotlight February 2010 and see more photos at http://doghouseadoptions.org/molly-m

Why Molly Needs You

We’re trying, through kindness, to distract Molly from missing the love that she is so very accustomed to. Carol unexpectedly and very suddenly passed away on May 30th. As Carol’s obituary says, “The only things she loved more than church and her dog Molly was her family.”

The family is doing the best they can for Molly by placing her in the care of rescue friends at Dog House Adoptions. Carol’s children, like her, are animal rescuers and advocates, but their houses are already filled with animals who had once been in need.

Giving Molly up was twice the heartbreak after this family suffered the loss of their mother. Please, consider easing their minds and Molly’s heart. Bring this dog home.

More About Molly

Molly is still, as Carol said, “cute as can be,” but she is starved no more. In fact, she could use a bit of a walking routine, if you’re inclined to get some exercise. She’s fairly good on a leash during a lively walk but, if you slow down and she has an agenda, she will try to pull you along at her pace.

Molly has been terrific with grandchildren of all ages. She’s good with most other dogs. She tolerated well the feral cat given shelter by Carol. She can also be left alone during the work day, although we recommend a crate and a good chew or bone since she does tend to gnaw on non-dog things when she’s bored.

The little polka dot spots on her right ear are just darling, as is that black patch over her left. And she reaches up to bury her head in your arms as you rub the sides of her face. Molly needs somebody to do just that right now.

How You Can Help

Won’t you soothe Molly’s sweet and still cheerful soul? She’s unsure what’s happening right now but, with your love, she would find so much comfort in the safety of stability once more. And she would love you for the rest of her life.

Prince has lived with kids his whole life, snuggling into bed with them to chase away the boogie man. He currently lives with 3 kids ages 3, 12, 17.  He’s also good and playful with other dogs. We’re just not sure about cats. Described as a Goofus, he’s a happy-go-lucky guy who likes to romp and play, but also to lay quietly by your side when playtime is through.
