Candy aka Sweet Potato was a 4-year-old, 33-pound female terrier mix from the NYCACC. Unfortunately, she lost her owner due to a sudden death a few months ago and found herself in the NYCACC. In a surprising turn of events, the next of kin of her owner reached out to us. We were able to find out more about sweet Candy, such that her name is Candy. Her previous owner loved her very much and had her for about 6 months before his passing. While his family is not able to reclaim her.  Now she found her forever home.

Looking for a home!

Meet April, the adorable 1-year-old, 32-pound female mix from NYCACC!

April is an absolute sweetheart who adores head pets and scratches once she's comfortable. Though initially timid, she quickly warms up to people, resting her head on you for love and pets. She's already mastered "sit" and "look" and is eagerly learning leash manners. While she may stubbornly stand still to greet new friends, her wagging tail reveals her eagerness to say hello.

We can't wait for April to find her forever family!
