About Pigeon: Pigeon is a Pitt mix about 4.5 years old. Three years ago, someone dumped him in our neighborhood. He wandered our neighborhood for about a week. I would see him as I drove through the neighborhood. I would try to get him to come to me and my car, but he wouldn’t. Finally one day, he was hanging out near my house. I sat in my driveway with my head down holding treats. After about 45 minutes, he trusted me enough to take the treat from my hand. It was love at first sight for our entire family. That night Pigeon slept in bed with us and he buried himself under the covers.  I found out from a neighbor that someone in our neighborhood had called the humane officer to pick Pigeon up. The very next day after finding Pigeon, I took him to the vet to be neutered. While we were on our way to the vet, the humane officer drove past us in our neighborhood. Poor Pigeon could have been on his way to the animal shelter instead of our home; had he not come to me that day in the driveway. About a year and a half after finding Pigeon, he started regurgitating and could not keep down a meal. He lost an extreme amount of weight and my vet couldn’t figure out what was wrong with him. He was suffering and starving we were considering putting him down. A friend recommended that I try her vet. So I did.  It was there that Pigeon was diagnosed with Canine megaesophagus and myasthenia gravis. We finally had a diagnosis. His prognosis was guarded but we had a game plan. We were to feed him small meals three to four times a day and hold him upright for 10-15 minutes after each feeding. I immediately got on the internet to research Canine Megaesophagus (ME). During my research I found Bailey Chairs 4 Dogs, they build special chairs for dogs with ME to eat and sit in after they finish their meal. We immediately ordered a chair for Pigeon and he has been thriving ever since! He’s a happy, playful and loveable Pittie!!! He just eats a little differently than most dogs.  I’m happy to say that he has gained all of his weight back… and perhaps could even use a diet! He loves playing, running, chasing deer, giving kisses and sleeping under the covers.

Here is Mickey’s story: Mickey is facing death because an unsupervised 4 year old child went onto Mickeys property while Mickey was enjoying his bone. The child tried to take the bone away from Mickey. Mickey went to grab his bone back and bit the child in the face. Local attorneys the Schill Law Group will try to save poor confused Mickey who is being punished for doing what dogs do and what children should be taught not to. He is sad and very confused. He deserves to be fought for.http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/story/24791370/2014/02/21/dog-attack-pit-bull-mauls-4-year-old-boyhttp://ktar.com/96/1717076/Judge-makes-tough-but-right-decision-with-Mickey-the-pit-bullhttps://www.facebook.com/pages/Save-Mickey/627613240621251Here is Mickey’s story: Mickey is facing death because an unsupervised 4 year old child went onto Mickeys property while Mickey was enjoying his bone.

Here is Abby’s story: I am sharing a picture of my rescue dog Abby. She was rescued from a hoarding situation where she was one of over 75 dogs in a house with no running water. She had never been outside, never new love, never had steady meals and she was pregnant. I am one of the rescue volunteers involved in this rescue. When I brought her home to foster I thought she as a safe bet, no way I would fall in love with a little doxie mix. I was so wrong!  I helped her delivered her 2 puppies in my bathroom with a vet on standby but it went well. She is a great Mommy. When her pups were adopted she was heartbroken and when people came to meet her she was terrified. I could not rehome her, even thought that was my goal by fostering her. She is now my sweet baby. Our bond is incredible. And she is mother to every young dog (and cat) I foster. She is an incredible dog and I am so fortunate that she came into my life. Thank you for reading Abby’s story. This is a picture of her with my newest rescue, Maggie the kitten. And Thank you for your inspiring art and support of rescue. Along with her order, Abby’s mom will be receiving “Sweet Dream” dog collar, leash and matching tags from our studio for being so awesome. Thank you for choosing adoption. View Larger

Rabbithole Gallery Presents:

Dean Russo: Art & Animals
First solo exhibition in Dumbo, Brooklyn, NY

Art and animals; these two passions define Dean Russo. A Brooklyn based artist uses vibrant pop-art colors and bold abstract patterns to find personal connections with his subject matter. The urban landscapes of Brooklyn provided fundamental structure for inspiration for Dean - Painted walls peeling after years of neglect brought to life by murals and graffiti that reflect his art making process over the decade.  
 
Being misunderstood is one of the main topics of discourse in this body of work. Dean’s goal is to highlight joy and vibrancy, despite  the misconstrued public criticisms of his subjects.
Please come join us for the opening reception to meet the artist and also be introduced to Joann Amitrano, a Brooklyn based jewelry and mixed media artist, as they showcase their artistic venture through some of their collaborated pieces.

Hooch • New private commission piece • 18x24” on paper About Hooch: Hooch is an 8-year old, senior boy who was rescued through Unchained New York’s community outreach program. Hooch was living outside in a garbage filled pen when we received a call asking for medical help. Hooch had suffered a bit wound to his leg, but what was more alarming was the tennis ball sized mass growing on his elbow. We immediately brought him to the vet, where the bite wound was addressed and his tumor biopsied.  The results came back as cancer – sarcoma. Due to the location of the tumor, Hooch would need long-term recovery indoors, and we were able to secure Hooch’s surrender to our care. We had his tumor removed, and Hooch had to visit the vet on a daily basis – now he is a healthy, happy boy.  Hooch was adopted by UCNY co-founder and his foster, who immediately fell in love with this laughable boy. Hooch now LOVES his life, having two canine brothers of his own. We have yet to meet a dog more grateful than Hooch – waking up every morning, rolling around on the blankets in bed giving smiles and snorts of contentment. And, Hooch is a champ when it comes to sharing the house with other canine fosters. View Larger
