“I just recently retired and having Kai gives me a routine and a schedule.
I still mourn the cat, and realize that Kai is not a substitute.
I used to get maybe 8,000 or 9,000 steps on my Fitbit, but now I get 10,000 by 2 pm.
He runs much faster than I do.
I know this, because he ran away from me twice in Rockaway.”
“I was as nervous as could be.
Finally, I got the call, one and get the baby.
He was with his foster mom in Manhattan.
I picked him up and took him to Rockaway, and BAM, I had a puppy to take care of.
We moved to Manhattan in October and he has adjusted very well.
He loves the smells, but hates the noise.”
“I went through Rescue Dogs Rock, while living in Rockaway.
They offered me a Maltese/Chinese Crested mutt with three legs who was one and a half years old.
I took him.
When I saw his photograph, I fell in love with his face instantly.
I applied for him, filled out a long form, had a phone interview and then had a house visit.
I was approved.”
“My late husband and I had a cat and the cat was his beloved cat.
We had agreed when the cat passed away, we would get a dog.
My husband died three years ago and the cat died last summer.
I went online in late June looking for a rescue dog.
I wanted an adult poodle.”
