Apollo

Fluffy, white Apollo stood out immediately at the overcrowded shelter.  He was so scared and would not do well in those surroundings.  Once we rescued Apollo and placed him into a foster home, he began to relax and feel free to be the sweet boy that he is.  Apollo is a beautiful 3 year old American Eskimo mix that is timid initially and then warms up.  In order to provide a calmer environment for Apollo, we recommend he go to a family with older, considerate children.  Submit your application today for Apollo at njshpetrescue.org if you live within 60 minutes of Chester, NJ.

Baloo

Baloo is a year and a half year old silver lab. He will need an experienced handler willing to give him the structure he needs to succeed. Baloo is fun and very affectionate. He is energetic and will need lots of exercise. 
Baloo weighs 70 pounds and is great on leash. He is not dog reactive but is very particular about his dog friends so a one dog home would be best for him.

Cooper

Cooper was raised in one home since he was a puppy. His life there was very stressful which led to him being fearful of loud noises. Cooper is loving, warm and friendly much of the time. He will need a quiet environment with someone who will give him time and space to feel comfortable in his new surroundings.  Cooper is 3 years old and we believe will flourish in the right situation. He has spent some time with our trainer that feels he can be successfully acclimated into a home where he can continue to develop his confidence. you must be willing to work with us on acclimating him into your home. We are sure that together we can change things for Cooper. Please note that you must live within a 60 minute radius of Chester and should apply online at njshpetrescue.org if interested

Sweet little 9 month old Daphne was dumped along with her litter mates and brought to a shelter.  All the puppies were adopted by the public from the shelter except for Daphne. She had a prolapsed rectum which was easily corrected by a minor surgical procedure but no one was willing to step up for her.  NJSH Pet Rescue brought this sweet puppy to a loving foster in NJ and provided the simple surgery and is now looking for her forever home.

Gerkin

Gerkin was found as a stray in a NJ suburban neighborhood. No one came forward to claim her and there was no microchip. Gerkin is about 2 years old and 28 pounds. She has short legs and is a petite little spitfire. Gerkin is good with dogs and cats,,, she is timid and although has been in foster with children needs some time to warm up to people entering the house. For this reason we are recommending a quiet home with children 10 and older. Gerkin is both house and crate trained too!​

Kevin is 4 years old and 9 pounds. He is a chi mix who is good with dogs and cats. He would do best in a quiet all adult home. He warms up to females much quicker than males. Kevin will need a patient adopter who will give him time to feel comfortable. We have seen him really come out of his shell after several weeks in his foster home.

Handsome Max lived together with 4 other young dogs until the owner decided he had too many dogs and surrendered them to a shelter. Max is a 1 yr old lab/shepherd mix and about  45 pounds.  He is friendly with all dogs he meets. He is a bit timid when meeting new people and in new situations, therefore Max must be adopted to a home with another dog because he gains his confidence from the dog he is living with. Submit an application if you live less than 60 minutes from Chester, NJ.

Norman was found as a stray in a rural area.  He is about 2 years old and 40 pounds.  Norman is a "leash reactive" dog that loves other dogs. He lives in foster with dogs and a perfect home for him would be with another dog.  We will need an understanding adapter who will work with us to integrate Norman into their home. He gets his confidence from other dogs when on walks and when left home alone.  Norman would be fine in a home with with older considerate children only. He is a sweet dog that loves to cuddle and play and deserves a wonderful home of his own.

Toby

Toby was part of a large group of dogs that were living together in a home. They were well taken care of but are timid so a quiet place would be best. All of the dogs were Maltese, Pug and Pekignese so the he could be one or more of those breeds. Toby is between 3-5 and in good health, neutered ,UTD and microchipped. He is very sweet and loving and would do best with 1 or more small dogs in the home. Toby does not seem to mind cats and adores toys!!

Violet

 Beautiful Violet was overlooked day after day, week after week at the shelter while she was the best behaved and most friendly dog there that was repeatedly used to test all the other dogs at the shelter.  Violet waited and watched as the other dogs were adopted yet she remained behind because she is "just another black dog. Then, Violet's serious hookworm infestation caused her rectum to prolapse, her days were severely numbered.  Miraculously we had a foster home open up so NJSH could pull Violet and save her from certain death!  Violet has had her surgery and is doing excellent in her temporary medical foster home.  If you would like to bring this beautiful girl into your family, submit an application to njshpetrescue.org . You must live within 60 minutes of Chester, NJ to apply.

Little Zelda was surrendered to the shelter because she did not get along with small children. Sometimes the movements of small children are frightening to small dogs so it’s not unusual for them to be surrendered for this reason. Zelda would be fine with older considerate children and is house trained. Chihuahua experience preferred. She is ready to find her second chance. Could it be with you? If interested please fill out an application online at njshpetrescue to be considered Please note you must live within 60 minutes of our rescue to adopt as in person home visits are required
