These animals are available for adoption at the ASPCA Center on East 92nd Street.
Derby, a 3-year-old Chihuahua mix, is up for adoption. He only has three legs, but this little tripod has no trouble keeping up, and he loves to play. He adores being with his favorite people and likes to curl up on available laps. Squeaky toys have a special place in Derby's heart, and if you toss one, he will chase right after it. He may not be a retriever, but he will bring the toy back to you for another round of play. Cat owners should have no problem with Derby, because he's lived with cats before. But he's not a huge fan of other dogs, and needs some time to understand that you're one of the good guys. Once he warms up to you, he'll be your canine pal. Derby would be a perfect pet for a Chihuahua fan and would do best in a teens-and-up household. Derby is neutered and up-to-date on all vaccinations.

Buffy and Pearl
Buffy and Pearl are 11-month-old feline beauties who would like nothing more than to find a loving home and spend all of their time together. These two are a bonded pair and love each other so much that they can't bear to be split apart, so they must be adopted together. These lovely ladies are sensitive and shy, so they would appreciate respectful owners who don't move too fast toward them. Once they sniff you out, they'll let you know if they are comfortable being petted. Buffy and Pearl are Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) positive, but that shouldn't prevent them from living long, healthy lives. They would do best with an experienced cat owner with children over the age of 10. Both Buffy and Pearl are spayed and up-to-date on all vaccinations.
With each of these pets, the ASPCA includes also includes a microchip and free follow-up vet exam.
