I was on petfinder and I saw a Chi i´d like to adopt, but I haven´t heard of the rescue shelter before. They´re called Stray from the Heart in New York, and they say they´re affiliated with P.L.U.T.O. Has anyone ever heard of them, and are they okay to deal with? I´ve heard alot of stories of bad shelters, so just trying to make sure. I know there are great shelters everywhere on petfinder, but there also are a few bad ones too (Jen Connor, anyone?) :(

Hey there,
I've worked with Stray from the Heart :love: for over 5 years now (volunteer work). Stray from the Heart actually does not even have a shelter, but a group of foster homes that help dogs get on thier feet and find forever home for them. Take a look at our website at ( . Our most up to date dog listing is actually found on Petfinder at ( . Usually Stray doesn't adopt out of the tri-state area, but check the site out anyway.

:grouphug: On another note... we are having a great Cinco de Mayo 2005 party this Thursday at Starlight Lounge in NYC. Ave A between 10th and 11th street.

If you have any questions, email us at or call 212.726.dogs.

Thanks much!
Laura :)

I tell you, once you have a Pit, Staffie or other Bully Breed, I for one can never go back :thumbs up

My little Sassy (English Staffordshire Bull Terrier) is the light of any dark day! I don't know what I would do without her. I tell you I wouldn't smile nearly as much. It's such a shame that there is so much misinformation everywhere about these breeds of dogs.

Thanks go to Toni and Beth at Stray from the Heart for really getting out there in the trenches and saving these dogs! Them and all the unsung rescuers out there that put there own lives at risk everyday saving these lives for no reward ut a lick and an empty wallet! :angel:

And another HUGE thank you to all those people who can't have one, but find other ways to help. Donating time and money really does go a long way. There is always another mouth to feed.
