Would You Be Carmine's New Owner?

One of the many dogs and cats available for adoption at the New Rochelle Humane Society.

From the New Rochelle Humane Society:

Hi, my name is Carmine. I came to the shelter in November of 2011 when I wandered away from my home exploring one day. Someone called animal control because I was not on a leash with a person. I guess that is not allowed. Gee how was I do know, I am just a dog.

I really thought my family would come looking for me. You know if my family was lost I would have looked for them. I waited and waited day after day at the shelter searching every face that came looking into my kennel, but sadly they never came. This made me very sad, I did love them.

The people at the New Rochelle Humane Society have been very nice to me. They made sure I got all my vaccines and even micro-chipped me. I made a special friend at the shelter; his name is Jon. Jon takes me hiking a few times each week. Jon has a cocker spaniel that joins us on our hikes. Jon has even taken me on vacation with him upstate New York.

We hike a lot, but Jon says my favorite thing to do is to lounge around the cabin. Jon said I am very well behaved. I don't jump on the furniture, never chew anything and have excellent house manners. He even said I am the best behaved dog he has every taken to his cabin and Jon has taken about a dozen dogs on vacation with him over the years he has been a volunteer for New Rochelle Humane Society.

I really want to have a home of my very own. Would you like to meet me? You can meet me today. We are open Fridays through Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursdays from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Contact the  for more information. They are located at 70 Portman Rd. in New Rochelle. Their phone number is 914-632-2925.

Carmine looks so nice. I'd take him if I didn't have my two big dogs. I sure hope someone appreciates his smile and good behavior!

I agree. I can't have a dog where I'm currently living.
