Welcome everyone to this second segment of my website where I feature dogs for adoption from the local Canine Rescue and Adoption Shelter.
It has been a while since I last posted to this feature but that is due to COVID-19 and the fact that the Shelter is closed at the present time and only taking online adoption applications until the can re-open again.
Of course, the shelter I am referring to is the Jersey Shore Animal Center. This is the Animal Center where I adopted my Chance nearly three years ago. They have so kindly given me permission to feature their dogs in my articles.
The mission for these segments is not only to educate and inform, but open your mind to adopting instead of shopping for your next fur friend.
After all; don’t dogs need to be in a good, nurturing home environment, surrounded by loving family members, just like you and me? Of course they do!
This second article in the series will refresh your knowledge about this wonderful shelter and the great work they are performing on behalf of all animals, not only dogs.
Here are the amazing dogs chosen to be featured in this segment. So what do you say, shall we get started? I thought you might agree, so here we go! One last thing before we jump in!
If you are interested in any of the dogs featured in my series, please contact the shelter to make certain they are still available.
Let’s Give a Warm Hello to Moses!
This 1 year old Great Pyrenees mix is about 60-lbs. He is a very sweet and confident boy. If you understand the breed they are protectors (they are bred for guarding livestock), so he will be protective of home and family.
He could use basic training like any young dog. Moses is a LOVE and will make a wonderful addition in the right home! Enjoys car rides and belly rubs! Would be great in a home with kids over the age of 10.
Holly’s story is a sad one. This poor girl had been in a boarding facility since Christmas. Look at her soulful eyes. Her owner moved and was not able to take her along. Her hopes were to get her back, but unfortunately was not able to do so.
So she was officially surrendered to our rescue partners down South and transported up to us. Fenced in yard required, she will escape if given the chance. She is 3 years old and 42-lbs. This poor girl needs another chance for sure! She knows “sit” and “paw”. She is very active. She LOVES to be with people and does not want them to leave….understandably. Please open your heart to Holly, she deserves a forever home.
Meet Randall…a new resident here at JSAC. He is a goofy boy who doesn’t realize his own size. This fella has had zero training, so an obedience class is totally necessary to teach him some basic manners; like no jumping, walking on the leash etc.
He is very receptive to learning and correction. This poor guy was found as a stray down in TN. He was rescued from the shelter down there, transported up to NJ, and is now looking for someone to give him the love and training he needs. He is a big boy (55-lbs but needs to gain some weight) with a bigger heart! Loves his squeaky toys and just wants to be by your side.
He is 2 1/2 years old and would love a nice home with a fenced yard to romp around in. We think Randall will be okay with another playful dog, but of course a meet and greet will be necessary. At this time we are unsure of his feelings towards cats.
Sweet Millie is a year old (50-lb) Hound mix up from TN looking for her forever home. She needs to work on her confidence a bit so another dog in the home is a requirement so they can show her the ropes, and help her turn into a confident pup. Fenced in yard required. Millie loves to give paw and hugs too.
Won’t you give a chance at a loving, affectionate home environment? Just go online to the Jersey Shore Animal Center at Jersey Shore Animal Center and fill out an adoption application. All fees and information you’ll need will be on the website.
Please do not be deterred from adopting because this is a local shelter here in New Jersey. They will transport the pet to you if you are outside of the state, within reason.
COVID-19 And JSAC
In this time of uncertainty that has been brought about by COVID-19, many folks find themselves in need of companionship. Why not adopt a dog? They make great companions and bring some much love and joy to our lives.
The Jersey Shore Animal shelter has been faced with difficult and challenging times. At present the shelter is closed to the public, no tours are being conducted to visit the animals and the staff is doing their best to come up with alternatives ways to reach out to the public to find forever homes for all their animals. Please reach out to them if you are in my local area and are thinking of adopting.
If my segments can help them in any way, I will continue to reach out to my audience to get involved and adopt an animal that desperately needs a good home.
Although my segments involve one of the local shelters in my area, I hope they will help to educate and inform everyone around the world about the adoption and care of a dog.
I hope it motivates you to adopt and not shop. Besides being a very selfless thing to do, adoption costs less and keeps the population of shelters low.
You may be in my local area, another state or somewhere on the other side of the world, however the adoption principle is the same. A shelter life, although well taken care of (most of the time), is no life for a dog.
I hope you enjoyed this segment! If you are interested in finding out more about the Jersey Shore Animal Center (JSAC), or any of the dogs that will be featured in this series, please leave some comments down below and I will gladly provide any additional information you may need.
All the best!
