Together we can HEAL more. Love when rescues work together. 🙏🏻❤️Ace belongs to a disabled veteran, who saved him from a roadside in TX. He is dearly beloved by his family and got loose from his home and he was hit by not one, but two cars! Ace had a shattered femur and needed extensive and very expensive surgery. Our ♥Joey & Oreo HEAL Fund♥ donated over 50% of the surgery costs thanks to the advocacy efforts of The Jamie Bug & Tobster Foundation❤️🐶 Ace got his surgery and is now home! He is recovering very nicely and the vet is pleased with his progress. Ace's dad sadly had to sell his car 🚗 to pay the remainder of Ace's vet bill. He is one dedicated dad and we respect him for doing what needed to be done to help his baby! It is because of caring individuals like YOU that make it possible for us to post updates like this and for us to continue to help pets stay with their family!...

❤️Update on Trooper, the “miracle dog” with the chew toy stuck in his intestines for OVER a month…he went for a post-surgery check-up and the vet gave him a clean bill of health! This big boy is back home and loving life sans chew toys 😝 Trooper lost over 20lbs as his family desperately sought help with his surgery costs and were even willing to give him up to save his life😥. Our ♥Joey & Oreo HEAL Fund♥ stepped in to cover his surgery. As the vet operated on Trooper, she noticed how badly shredded and entangled the chew toy was in intestines. She called him a “miracle dog” and was surprised how Trooper had made it so far without his body shutting down. You helped us HEAL Trooper and gave him a second chance at life with his loving family! Thank you for all your support in helping us keep families and pets together!...

❤️Baxter (previously Mega at  Hempstead Shelter in Long Island (TOHAS)): From an overlooked sad senior with a stuffie in his mouth to living the life with his boy! How we love such happy endings!!❤️🥰🙏 Mega was surrender to the Hempstead Animal Shelter when his owners were evicted.💔 A big, dark colored, senior pitbull, Mega WAITED for his forever family for almost a year. His adopters fell in love with Mega’s picture with the stuffie and drove over 200 miles to bring him home. However, Mega’s new life was not without its challenges….a cancer diagnosis and behavior issues.😟Baxter has been diagnosed with a mast cell tumor with a “fair to favorable” prognosis. His medical and cancer treatment is covered by our ♥Joey & Oreo HEAL Fund♥. A HUGE thank you to Baxter’s pawsome family for adopting and standing by his tribulations!!!🙏 To the wonderful volunteers at TOHAS, who go above and beyond to love and take care of the so many wonderful dogs in their care!!❤️ #BaxterHEAL #JoeysElderPaws #JEP #TheJoeyAndOreoHEALFund #HumanityEmpathyAnimalLove#WeRescueSeniorBondedandPitbullTypeDogs #KeepingPetsOutofShelters #TeachHEAL #HumaneEducationTeachHEAL #TeachHEALBuildingUpOurYouth...

Adorable little marshmallowy meatball Blanca (#boroughbred30687) was at risk at the Brooklyn Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) due to medical conditions i.e., orthopedic issues that require continued care. We stepped up to save Blanca, when ACC staff reached out for help for this "staff fave”, and overfull conditions at the shelter due to slow summer adoption months. We don't have much information on this sweet pup’s past except that she came in as a stray with deep, infected lacerations on her face, a wound on her leg, and injuries on her hind limbs. We’re so happy to report that Blanca now renamed Willow has healed well!! She has truly hit the jackpot with her hoomans and doggie foster bro Grey, who's thrilled (and exhausted!) to have a playmate! Despite her sad, abusive past, Willow loves to give kisses, topples over for belly rubs, and embarks on celebratory zoomies fueled by happiness. Happy life sweet girl! #WillowAtHEAL #EveryDogMattersatJoeysElderPaws #TheJoeyAndOreoHEALFund #WeRescueSeniorBondedandPitbullTypeDogs #KeepingPetsOutofShelters #HEALNow #HumanityEmpathyAnimalLove #TransformingAnimalandHumanLives #EmpathyConnectionBuildingUpOurYouth #TeachHEALBuildingUpOurYouth...

We want to thank all our supporters and donors, for giving a chance at life to Sweetie. There was no hope for her without you. A SENIOR DOG IN A HIGH-KILL MUNICIPAL POUND WITH A HUGE TUMOR ON HER NECK. We're so happy to report that Sweetie is recovering nicely. She finally ate a full meal today with her meds to the relief of her worried foster mom. Sweetie has a big incision and is probably in a lot of pain, but we can only imagine how relieved she must be to be rid of that 2+lb tumor hanging around her neck. We're still waiting for the biopsy report, so please continue to keep this sweet girl in your thoughts and prayers. Sweetie was rescued from the Waterbury pound on April 13 and is in a foster home. True to her name. she is the sweetest pup ever, despite the discomfort the big tumor on her neck must be causing her. She will soon feel as good as new after her surgery. Sweetie is about 5-6 years old and IS KID AND DOG FRIENDLY. She was found as a stray sitting and watching some kids play soccer in a park. SHE IS EXTREMELY WELL-BEHAVED, HOUSEBROKEN AND WALKS BEAUTIFULLY ON THE LEASH. We believe she was definitely a family dog before being abandoned....

Nala Rescued under our Owner Surrender Prevention Partnership with the NYCACC: Last week we visited the Manhattan ACC and were once again reminded of how heartbreaking and depressing a place a shelter can be for our four legged friends. The staff at the NYCACC does its best to highlight abandoned pets to New Hope Rescue partners like us, but the sheer volume of dogs coming through the doors from the five boroughs is simply overwhelming. As part of our Owner Surrender Prevention Partnership with NYCACC and our #KeepingPetsOutofShelters initiative, we rescued 5-year old Nala (#boroughbred19357) a deferred intake at the Manhattan ACC today! Another sweet pup failed by her humans. But she is safe and will soon be home with her awesome foster parents and sister (also rescued from the NYCACC). A bit about Nala's sad history. Her family got her three weeks ago from her previous family, who had no time for her. Her current family had to rehome her as she is not a good match. So why was Nala not a good match?! Well…because Nala had growled a few times in her current home when her OWNER PUT HER FACE ON HER FACE!! REALLY…so as per her notes from the NYCACC "1/18, Nala was lying on the couch and her ADULT OWNER was lying sitting behind her. The ADULT OWNER leaned on her and put her face on her face. Nala growled. Her owner leaned back SLIGHTLY ON HER and told her that wasn't nice. Nala turned around and lunged and bit her lip. She then ran to a corner and hid. Nala's first family (WHO DIDN'T EVER HAVE TIME FOR HER IN THE FIRST PLACE!!) was very surprised to learn that she bit her current owner. They report that she hadn't bit anyone while she lived with them."...

Amber is one of the two dogs we rescued from being euthanized at the Waterbury, CT pound! This gorgeous 1-2 year was never loved, but despite that has so much love to give. SHE IS DOG AND KID FRIENDLY. Amber was described as a pit bull mix at the Waterbury pound. We're unsure of her exact breed, but she seems to have some Sharpei and Brown Mouth Cur in her as well. Amber is spayed and up to date on all her shots. She is currently in foster in  Central NY and available for adoption through our friends Diamond in the Ruff, NY....

Joey’s Elder Paws Rescue approved as a NYCACC New Hope Partner: Meet Griswald (#boroughbred15653) rescued 12/21 from the Manhattan ACC) our newest H.E.A.L.er and first official rescue as a newly accepted NYCACC New Hope partner. Gris, found as a stray, was At Risk at the shelter due to kennel cough. Thank you to the Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) Manhattan New Hope staff for advocating and highlighting this sweet older pup to us. Gris is with a short-term foster in Westchester, NY and will be going to our H.E.A.L. (Humanity, Empathy & Animal Love) Sanctuary in upstate NY tomorrow. He has been the perfect houseguest, adoring, low key, low maintenance and housebroken. Bringing Griswald home from the shelter was an extremely emotional experience. He refused to come with us and wanted to go back into the shelter, the only safe place he knew, after having been a stray for God knows how long. He had to be lifted into the car and then when we got home he wouldn’t get off. He looked confused and scared, tail tucked between his legs. GRIS' SAD EYES AND THE SCARS ON HIS FROSTED FACE MAY SPEAK VOLUMES OF HIS HARD, ABUSIVE PAST, BUT HE IS SUCH A GENTLE, LOVING SOUL. Griswald is BEYOND ADORABLE. This bouncy boy is so very sweet, mellow, SUPER DOG and KID FRIENDLY….you can't ask for more in your new best friend! But Gris was the lucky one. We don’t know how long Griswald had been a stray, but seeing his contentment at being loved and inside a house is simply priceless. There are so many Joeys, Griswalds,  and nameless others in shelters that need rescuing. Please open your hearts and homes to a homeless pup. #AdoptDontShop....

Nala, Frida, Rey and Leia, are four sibling puppies rescued from a high kill shelter in South Carolina. We helped foster these beautiful babies and found them the most wonderful forever homes. The pups are pictured here with their human siblings. “Who rescued who?” Bringing families and rescued pets together…the picture captures all that is good about rescue....
