Adoption Monday: Young at heart Lina looking for forever home
It's time for another Adoption Monday!
Once again our friends at the Monmouth County SPCA bring you another lovable pup looking for their forever home. This time it's the adorably playful Lina.
An 8-year-old Terrier mix, she is still looking for the right home... But we just know it's right around the corner!
She was first surrendered to the shelter in October 2016 when her owner from Manalapan became ill and could not care for her any longer. She was lucky enough to be adopted a little more than a month after that, but it turns out that was not her forever home either. She was returned a second time after 3 months for not getting along with the other dogs in the home. So here she is again looking for what we all hope will be her forever home!
Lina is a super senior at 8 years young! She still likes to play and a game of fetch is her favorite! She loves car rides and enjoys outings to just about anywhere. She really enjoys long walks and would make a great hiking companion to an active family.
This great girl is a smart cookie too who knows most of her basic commands and will show off for a treat or two. Lina still has so much love to offer for many more years to come. Won't you come to give this sweet girl the life she so deserves?

Adoption Monday is sponsored by the Monmouth County SPCA, which provided the following info on its mission and history:
The Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was founded in 1945 to care for the community’s homeless, neglected and abused animals. The MCSPCA is not affiliated with any other shelter or welfare organization. We are not affiliated with, nor do we receive a majority of our funding from the Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, or the Associated Humane Societies, Inc.
Our mission is to protect and advocate for all animals. We are dedicated to enforcing animal cruelty laws; providing a safe haven for homeless, abused and abandoned pets while they await adoption; reducing pet over-population through spay/neutering; and cultivating their humane treatment through education and service as a valuable community resource.
Our vision is to be established firmly with our own unique identity throughout NJ and the animal welfare community as a leader in all things related to animals in Monmouth County and the people who care for them. We will be responsible for ensuring that all animal abuse is prosecuted and will increase our support of campaigning for the rights of animals in NJ. We will be a strong partner with other animal welfare organizations throughout the state in order to develop and share best practices, and to work together to make NJ a place where every animal is treated with respect, kindness and love.
