Meet Cola. This beautiful brindle boy is as sweet and bubbly as his name implies. Cola loves to play fetch. It’s his favorite thing to do in the entire universe. If he can’t play fetch, he’ll challenge himself to pick up as many tennis balls as he can. We’ve seen him fit 3 in his mouth at once! Cola is smart as a whip and has learned how to sit and wait patiently until his volunteer friend throws his ball. He’s also fast as the wind. He’s back and drops it at your feet before you know it. After a good game, Cola loves to lie down next to his volunteer and chill. He’s a world class snuggler. Shelter life is hard for an active boy like Cola. He gets out for about 15 minutes a day when he’s lucky. The rest of his time is spent in his run where he waits for his next brief chance of freedom. Cola would thrive in an environment with an active family or person. A fenced in yard would be perfect, so he can get his daily exercise. Kids 12 and up as his size and athleticism would not be ideal around younger children. At this time, we’ve labeled Cola as an only pet, but that could change once he’s out of the stressful shelter environment. Cola is about 1 ½ years old and 65 pounds.please contact our adoption coordinator, at 201- 981-3215 or email her at Lesliem147@gmail.com or come visit us at the shelter.

Look who is ready for his home...Max!!!!!!! This handsome lab/pit mix is about 7 years old . He is super mellow and weighs approximately 65 pounds.

  • American Staffordshire Terrier, Boxer
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Venus is between two and three years old and 40 lbs. she's a Boxer pit mix who tested as cat friendly,however, we always cat test several times before adopting a dog to a home with cats,because at the shelter the cats are in a controlled environment......Venus is dog selective. .She loves people and stuffed animals that are " her babies".She seems house trained but she was a stray dog so we can't say that with certainty ...Venus Is very smart and bored at the shelter....she needs a home with a family or person who will give her proper exercise and plenty of love. Children must be over 12 as Venus is very toy motivated and although she has learned to drop her toys ,she might not want to share with a child,or she may want their toys .Please contact Leslie, our volunteer adoption coordinator, at 201- 981-3215 or email her at Lesliem147@gmail.com or come visit us at the shelter.

Abigail is a young dog about two yrs old. She's very timid but once she gets to know you she's very sweet and gentle...she's dog selective but not fond of kitties...She would do best in a quiet adult home..She likes to play and run,but she's also a great cuddlier as her handler, Mike, tells us. Abigail is about 43 lbs. She's become much more relaxed and would really love to have a home of her own...she's come a long way since she first appeared as a scared puppy.

Queenie is a work in progress...She's only about 18 months old and seems to have had little socialization with other dogs before she wound up at the shelter a couple of months ago...Dedicated volunteers are working with her on her leash manners as well as her social skills...Queenie is very smart and wants to learn new things and please her person Queenie would not do well in an urban area with lots of dogs... She needs the house in suburbia with a yard and the occasional neighborhood dog. She is very affectionate but she is also a powerhouse, I would say kids over 12 and an experienced owner Please contact Leslie, our volunteer adoption coordinator, at 201- 981-3215 or email her at Lesliem147@gmail.com or come visit us at the shelter.

Davey is about three years old and 50lbs. he's a special favorite at the shelter because it took him a very long time to learn to trust us, but once he did,he became the favorite of many of the shelter volunteers and staff alike. ...he's pretty good on the leash although he would certainly benefit from a basic obedience class...He understands both Spanish and English...He loves treats...Likes to explore the outdoors and loves to run... if you have another dog, they would need to meet..as Davey is dog selective. .

  • American Staffordshire Terrier, Mixed Breed
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Prefers home without cats
Tyson is 3.5 to 4 years old and about 60 lbs. he was surrendered by a family who rescued him from a neglectful situation but they didn't introduce him to their male dog first and apparently, he was not happy to have a new brother...they did take good care of Tyson. He was clean and well fed and has a great temperament...he's a lovely dog, very affectionate and people friendly...likes to run and play ball. Appears to be housetrained but that's not definite...He has a beautiful face and the cutest ears as you can see..lol Tyson does not like to share his toys,so children should be over 12 ...we believe that he probably never had toys before...He will trade a toy for a treat with no problem,but that's not something a younger child should be involved in ... He walks nicely on leash and knows some basic commands. Here is what one of the volunteers had to say. " Tyson is such a good dog. I walk him every weekend and he knows the routine and that he only gets a few minutes in the playpen because "we have to give the other dogs a chance" since there's only 2 play pens, so as soon as I let him loose, he runs and runs and runs to get everything out of his system. I used to have to call him to come in (he does come when you call) but now he automatically runs to the gate door after his 10 minutes of running because he knows his time is up. When he first came in to the shelter, he didn't want to go back in his cage and would be so quick to slip out the cage door as soon as you put him in, but now he automaticallt goes in and stays in. He makes it so easy for me !! Tyson is affectionate and loves being pet. He also seems to be housetrained because he lets out a long pee the minute we walk out the door. Please consider Tyson. He is very cheerful and always smiling and would be a wonderful dog to come home to after a long day at work ?"

What Town &Country says about Achilles He went to our good friends at Allied Dog Training and aced his training. When his training was over we couldn't bear for him to go back to boarding.
