Found At McCarren Park…


this lass. The details I have currently are scant, but here’s what I have are courtesy of our good Samaritan, Miss Mousey Brown:

Can you help me find shelter for a dog  found in a Brooklyn dog run. She’s an adult female. Very sweet dog and particularly fond of females, I think. I don’t know what to do with her, because our zoo is to capacity…

I have forwarded this missive to a few folks who might be able to lend a hand. In the meantime if anyone reading this knows to whom this lady belongs or wishes to provide her a foster home please shoot me an email to Thanks!

UPDATE April 21: Brad Seaman of Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital writes;

Hey – she’s coming in tomorrow.  We’ll be taking a good picture of her, making a flyer, putting it up, and sending it around.

This item has been brought to my attention by a number of people. Aka Chan went missing at McCarren Park yesterday afternoon/morning (I have received conflicting information). If anyone reading this has seen Aka Chan or knows of her whereabouts please contact the people at Dog Habitat at (718) 710-0707.

LAST GASP: Have You Seen Sadie?

September 14, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11207, Bushwick, Bushwick Brooklyn 

As I have been watching the primary results this lovely— and lost— lady found her way in my inbox. Her name is Sadie. She is an Australian Cattle Dog, just above knee in height, 50lbs, sports a brown collar with pink polka dots and Chicago tags; and white eyelashes on her right eye. This petite pup was last (purportedly) seen near Central Avenue and Cooper Street on September 11th and her person would very much like some help distributing fliers tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. Here’s the 411 per a concerned friend named Ellen:

Cari (Sadie’s “mom”) is in need of finding some helpers to distribute flyers in Bushwick : Central Ave and Cooper area tomorrow WED at 1pm.  She is planning to meet @ 1 PM in front of Firehouse 252 Squad at Central and Cooper : 617 Central Ave. Whatever time people have to post flyers…someone said they saw Sadie there on Sept 11th. Cari has not been able to get into the city much and difficult to enroll people during the week.  I am willing to pay people 10. an hour to help.

Cari can be reached via email at: carivm (at) gmail (dot) com. Otherwise if you have seen this lovely lass please contact her “person” at the above telephone number. Otherwise you can check out her Facebook page here. Thanks!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Kika Goes Home!

June 1, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

Some of you might remember this lovely lass. I posted her photograph last week here on New York Shitty. She was found at the corner of Dupont Street and Manhattan Avenue and the guys (and gals) of Dog Habitat were desperately trying to locate her rightful owner. Well today I received some very good news! Jay writes:

I know Rob told you the great news yesterday but I wanted to thank you for helping to reunite a lost dog with her owner. One of your readers (who lives in Manhattan) called late Sunday night and said ‘I was just looking at a photo on newyorkshitty and I think you have my brother’s dog’ It was true! Thanks to your blog, Kika, is safely back home!

We are so thrilled that this story has a happy ending. All too often a lost or stray animal ends up in the shelter system and the odds are stacked against them (especially pit bulls like, Kika). Please help encourage your readers to microchip their cats and dogs!

That’s very good advice Jay— and I am glad I could help Kika find her way back home!

Jay Lombard (who sent me the above photo) of Dog Habitat writes:

Heather- please post this photo. This dog was found as a stray (with choke collar) near manhattan ave and dupont a few days ago and we’ve been trying to find the owner. We heard that there was a man driving around the area looking for a lost dog, but we have no other leads or contact info. We’re hoping one of your readers will recognize this pretty, brindle female pit mix.

If you know who this handsome pup belongs to please contact the folks at Dog Habitat at 347-601-8678 asap. Thanks!

Stolen Dog Alert: Has Anyone Seen Buddy?

December 14, 2009 ·
Filed under: 11211, Crazy Cat Lady, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn 


I found a number of these fliers on and around Bedford Avenue today. Per a different flier I found Buddy was taken between 12:00 – 7:00 a.m., December 10, 2009 from 100 Metropolitan Avenue . He is three years old and has neither a collar nor tags. If you have seen Buddy or know of his whereabouts, please contact his person at the above-listed telephone number. NOTE: do not try to handle Buddy yourself. He is fearful of strangers.

Miss Heather

UPDATE, 9:49 p.m.: Buddy has been returned to his rightful owner!
