NJ101.5 has partnered with local animal rescue organizations EASEL Animal Rescue League, Sammy’s Hope and Just in Time Rescue to feature adoptable local pets in need of homes.

Help us find these pets homes by sharing this information with family members and friends who may be interested in adopting a shelter pet.

Adopt Precious

Ten-year-old Precious was left outside the Edison Animal Shelter this July with another cat, Tiger, and a note with her name and age.  What the note didn't say is what an amazing, gentle and loving cat she is.  Staying in the background while her more outgoing kennel-mate Tiger seeks pets and belly rubs, our little calico lady will not approach, but waits patiently to be noticed, leaning in for soft pets and kisses. If you're looking for a quiet, serene feline to love and love you back, come meet Precious!

If you are interested in meeting Precious or fostering/adopting her, please email us at cats@sammyshope.org. You can download a PDF copy of the adoption application form here or you can see more adoptable cats from Sammy’s Hope here.

Adopt Bruno

Bruno is an American Staffordshire terrier mix who was found wandering the streets with a microchip, but his owner has not responded to calls. He was adopted from the Philadelphia SPCA about three years ago.  He has a fantastic personality, is friendly with everyone he meets and likes to roll over for belly rubs. Bruno sits and gives his paw, and just loves to curl up next to people. He seems fine around other dogs, so he should fit in nicely just about anywhere.

If you're interested in learning more about Bruno or to schedule a visit, email dogs@easelnj.org. Find more of EASEL’s adoptable dogs, puppies here or download a PDF copy of the application form here.

Adopt Trey

Trey is an adorable overgrown puppy who just loves everyone! We think he is less than a year old and an American Staffordshire terrier and Labrador Retriever mix. Trey is a bouncy boy who loves chasing a ball and leaning on people for cuddles. He is quickly learning his commands and is so handsome, he turns heads wherever he goes! Trey seems to be scared of children at the moment, so an adult home that would be willing to help him learn to trust kids would be best for him.

If you're interested in meeting Trey or fostering/adopting him, please email us at info@sammyshope.org. You can download a PDF copy of the application form here or you can see more adoptable dogs from Sammy’s Hope here.

Adopt Katniss

Katniss is one lucky girl! She was found by a good samaritan who very quickly realized that she was a very sweet girl who was either lost or abandoned. No one has come forward for her, so Katniss is being fostered by the woman who found her. Katniss is extremely sweet, affectionate and good with people. She loves to cuddle and sit in anyone's lap that will give her attention and treats.

To schedule a visit to meet Katniss, please email kitty@easelnj.org or call 609-883-0540. Find more of EASEL’s adoptable cats and kittens here, or download a PDF copy of the application form here.

Adopt Maylee

Maylee was rescued from a high kill shelter in the South.  When she arrived in New Jersey, she quickly got the nickname "Snowball" by her foster family because she loves to play in the snow. This beautiful Labrador Retriever mix is about 4-years-old, housebroken and crate trained. Baby carrots are one of her favorite snacks, and marrow bones are another favorite treat. This sweet, quiet girl would do great in a home with a fenced in yard and older kids. She is spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped.

For more information about adopting Maylee from Just in Time Rescue, email her foster mom at rescuemetami@gmail.com.

EASEL Fundraiser for Bunny

EASEL Animal Rescue League has started a fundraiser for Bunny, a young American Staffordshire terrier mix, to raise funds for her care at Spirit Animal Sanctuary. Bunny is a good, sweet dog, who had the misfortune of losing her sight, making her more vulnerable and scared than other dogs. Many volunteers, shelter employees and trainers at the shelter were involved in her rehabilitation. Our video "A Bunny's Tale" tells her story. The money raised will go to the Easel Animal Rescue to purchase Bunny a lifetime of food and veterinary care at Spirit Animal Sanctuary.
