OUR DOG OF THE MONTH:Woody
Super Smart and Handsome Woody is a very special dog who needs a very special home. He likes people, but feels insecure around strangers. It takes him a little while to trust someone he does not know. However, once he is comfortable around you, he will shower you with loyalty, love and affection. Woody also feels insecure around other dogs, and lacks the social skills to handle dogs in the street. For this reason, our goal is to place him with an experienced person who lives outside the City or in a quiet neighborhood, and does not have other dogs or children. The ideal home will also be knowledgeable about dog behavior and can provide strong but caring leadership. Woody has average energy but can be playful and rambunctious at times -- he loves to play, fetch and tug. He is only 2 years old, weights 32 lbs, has been neutered and vaccinated.

Founded in Sept. 2000 Stray from the Heart is a non-profit, volunteer-run dog rescue organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of homeless dogs. SFTH has grown into a network of volunteers who donate their time, expertise and housing space to help abandoned, abused, and neglected dogs find permanent, loving homes.
SFTH is also a member of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, a collaboration between animal care groups and the City of New York aimed at developing creative solutions to local animal care and control issues.
To date SFTH has helped rescue over 2,400 dogs, all without the benefit of either paid employees or a dedicated shelter facility. We rely solely on the generosity of its volunteers, supporters and contributors for its continued success.
We are different from other shelter and rescue organizations in that we have the uncanny ability to continuously successfully match up pets and people. As desperate as our little ones are for a home, we will always hold out for the right home.
If you have room in your life for a new best friend, call 212.726.DOGS and speak to an adoption counselor/matchmaker today. Thank you for giving our Strays the chance to experience joy, love and a life beyond their wildest dreams.
