If you don’t already know Finn & Charley, I highly recommend that you pop over there immediately! It’s hard, at the best of times, not to fall in love with Golden Retrievers but these two are truly special.
They epitomise the generosity and love the makes our Blogoshere so amazing.
Many of you know about Savannah’s Mom’s efforts to save Leo, a very sick cat. To help raise funds, the magnificent Mollie & Alfie ran an auction.
The fantastic Finn & Charley chose to bid on an item, not for themselves but for other rescue animals, highlighting a truly wonderful shelter. How sweet is that! Of course, Goldens are so sweet by nature that we really weren’t surprised.
They want to highlight Kent Animal Shelter in NY. They were so impressed by the shelter that they immediately felt the need to gain them more exposure. Obviously, there’s exposure happening anyway, as the animals are predominantly naked but we are not talking that type of exposure here!
Being adopted themselves, Finn & Charley feel strongly about Pro-Life organisations, such as Kent Animal Shelter, who ensure their animals are given as much time as necessary to find their perfect “forever homes”. No animal in their care will be euthanised unless incurably ill.
Kent Animal Shelter has been running for over 40 years, caring for, loving and re-homing thousands of abused, abandoned and homeless animals. They provide a happy and tranquil place, on a scenic property near the Peconic River. Animals receive exercise, love and expert medical attention. They even run Pet Therapy Programs and strive to educate people regarding pet care, leadership and compassion by working with local schools and groups.
Their vision is greater than the animals in their care, as they reach out into the community, sharing knowledge and providing low cost spay/neuter programs. They have even gone so far as to start a Retirement Home Program for cats.
If you are ever thinking of a adopting a pet, or feel that you can help them in any way, Kent Animal Shelter comes highly recommended and is certainly worth a visit. They typically have about 100 animals available for adoption.
They can be found at 2259 River Road, in Calverton.
Our eternal thanks to Finn & Charley for highlighting this wonderful organisation. Give them a High Five everybody!!!!

Bless you for your part in helping our fury friends find their forever homes. The ones here are perfection. Prayers they get home soon!
Aw, thank you. I’m sure all these beauties will find great homes. The wonderful thing about the pro-life shelters is that they give each animal enough time to find the perfect home.
I hope they find good homes
As they are given all the time they need to find their perfect homes, I’m sure they all will.
Aww I absolutely adore Charley! Remind me of my Moms labradoodle Summer! Absolutely precious!
Isn’t he just too gorgeous for words! Summer, what a sweet name.
God Bless the people at Kent Shelter for such outstanding efforts !
Indeed, God Bless them for such wonderful work.
Finn and Charley are real heroes. Well done to them. I really hope those sweet animals find good and loving homes very soon.
As they are giving plenty of time to do so, I am sure these animals will all find great homes. Finn & Charley are stars!
What a great organization. I’m glad to read and learn about them. Hope all these sweet babies get furever homes soon.
I’m sure all the cuties there will find great homes. The good thing is that they are given enough time to find their perfect place.
I hope these beautiful animals are adopted really soon.
I’m sure they all will be. They’re given all the time they need to find their perfect homes.
Yay! Nice one Finn, Charley and of course you too!
They really were fantastic, highlighting such a marvelous shelter. I love learning about new ones across the world.

Isn’t Charlie just gorgeous! Definitely gets the smiles going and yes, I love the name Penguin
perfect name for black and white. ha ha.
Too cute, isn’t it 🙂
Oh my goodness… Torrey has such beautiful colouring! They’re all so gorgeous though. My heart melts!
I just adore Torrey’s colouring as well. If she doesn’t get a home really, really soon I’d be most surprised.
I’m hoping at some point all shelters operate in this fashion, thanks for sharing them.
Wouldn’t that be just fantastic! Even better would be if there were no need for them at all.

I agree. It’s wonderful to learn about all the fabulous shelters worldwide. Torrey is a special little cutie, isn’t she?
I hope they find a forever home!
Oh I’m sure they will because they are given enough time to find their perfect forever homes.
We love them!
Aren’t they just a bunch of cutie pies
Hooray for no-kill animal shelters! I found my dog at one and she’d been there over 9 months. Lucky for her it was not the sort with limited time for adoption.
Brilliant. I’m so glad you adopted from one of these marvelous shelters. One lucky pup your dog is, both to have landed in a place that gave it time and to have found your home.
So beautiful. I love them all. You’re an Angel.
Thank you. Far from an angel but these cuties certainly are 🙂
Beautiful animals, how could you say no to their faces, just so adorable. If I could I would buy all the animals at the rescue shelter, hopefully they all find a loving family and a wonderful home.
I know the feeling, you just want to take them all. Sadly, none of us can but these ones are bound to find good homes as the shelter gives them all the time they need to find their perfect place.
That’s awesome, every animal deserves to find that perfect home.
They are so cute! Hope they have found homes already!
Wouldn’t that be wonderful, if they had all found homes already. At least, if they haven’t, we know that the place gives them all the time they need.
That’s wonderful. We live in NY, nowhere near them, but I will definitely keep them in mind!
Katie and Coccolino the mini pig
I guess NY is so big that you could end up being very, very far away but nice to know you’re at least in the same city.
I want to tip my hat for you allowing others of my large family to show up so that MAYBE they will find the forever home that we all want. Thanks f
or sharing your space and taking the time to write about us for the globe to see.
It was an absolute pleasure. Anything I can do to help raise awareness for such a wonderful organisation. I tip my hat to you for the wonderful work you are doing. Lets hope that, one day, I can make a trip over there and visit in person.
