Liberty Humane Society Maddie's Adoption Day's Event of 2014 Was a Massive Success!

Maddie's Day Adoptions Change Lives and Save Lives!

Liberty Humane Society’s biggest adoptions event of 2014 was a smashing success when 129 homeless animals found their forever homes in two days!

Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days is presented by Maddie’s Fund and The Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals and ran at more than 90 shelters and rescues throughout the New York metro area. The event promoted free pet adoption to qualified homes; for each animals adopted during the weekend-long event, Maddie’s Fund provides a grant to the participating shelter or rescue.

Thrilled to be chosen to participate in this event for the second year on a row, your Liberty Humane Society geared up for an exciting and busy weekend; volunteers and staff prepared the shelter for hundreds of visitors by bathing dogs and cats, painting signs, hosting a bake sale table with snacks and beverages, helping visitors through the adoption process, and handling the dogs in the yard throughout the day so that each animal was its best self—all the better to find an adoptive home.

All of the hard work paid off. During May 31 and June 1 when Liberty Humane Society, located at 235 Jersey City Boulevard, ran extended open hours to accommodate the adopting families, a record breaking 129 animals were adopted; 32 adult cats, 49 kittens, 43 dogs, 4 puppies, and yes, even a rat!

Adopters from as far away as Connecticut and Amherst, Massachusetts came down to meet and bring home adoptable dogs they had seen on-line through Liberty Humane Society’s Facebook page or

Liberty Humane Society would like to extend it's most sincere thanks to Maddie's Fund and The Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals for inviting LHS to participate and for hosting this life-changing, life-saving event.

LHS Spotlight

Featured Cat

Tip Oboe is handsome and lovable and just wants to be your best friend. He reminds me of Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh - big sad eyes. Other than warm cuddles, head scratches, food and water, he doesn't seem to expect very much - just love him and he will love you right back, unconditionally. He is very good at giving hugs but could really use some TLC. He is patient, kind and gentle. He seems very wise and all knowing - the type of cat that can sense your mood and will try really hard to provide comfort on cloudy days. When one speaks to Oboe, it's like he knows exactly what you are saying, and he tells you he understands with his big expressive eyes. He would most likely do well with other mild mannered pets and children, but would probably prefer a calm setting.

Featured Dog

Brownie Meet Nils, a big boy with the drive to be your 75-lb lap dog (Ok, maybe body pillow)! But, hey, big is beautiful too!

Nils, a five year old pit-mastiff mix, came to LHS in bad shape. He had a huge, thick chain collar embedded in his neck and his vision is slightly damaged from injury. Even still, Nils is a loving, forgiving boy and bear no ill-will to people at all! In fact, he so enjoys the company of his current foster family he finds ways to snuggle up, cuddle up, and generally be a good and affectionate boy as often as possible.

A real people pleaser with nice manners -- no jumping or unruly behavior here! -- Nils is housebroken, gentle, and easily give up his toys and rawhides.

Do you have another dog at home? Nils is choosy about who he spends his time with, so please be sure to check in with LHS Adoption Counselors before you visit our Nils.

This mellow gentleman with an affectionate heart will be the perfect dog for just about anyone. Please come down and meet Nils soon!

Lots of love, Nils xoxo
