New Rochelle Pet Of The Week: Carmine

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — This week’s Pet of the Week can be adopted from the New Rochelle Humane Society:

Hi, my name is Carmine. I came to the shelter in November 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 to know? I am just a dog. I really thought my family would come looking for me. You know, if my family were 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 who joins us on our hikes. Jon has even taken me on vacation with him to 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 ever 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.

The New Rochelle Humane Society, located at 70 Portman Road, is open every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Thursdays from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
