Adopt Me


Yonkers, NY: Help us network – this baby can’t get a home!! This beautiful pit/mastiff mix Cola is so loved by volunteers at the Yonkers Animal Shelter that he has his own page “Cola is Coming to Town” with over 2k likes! Unfortunately, nobody has adopted him yet, and there’s been little interest. He needs a yard to play ball, so he’s not a city dog. Someone with a yard – please adopt this angel boy! If you can’t adopt – please share. Sharing saves lives! He even has a celebrity volunteer (famed fashion designer John Bartlett) who can vouch for his amazingness!
