NJ101.5 has partnered with local animal rescue organizations EASEL Animal Rescue League, Sammy’s Hope and Animal Rescue 'R' Us 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 Goldfinger

Goldfinger is a beautiful golden cat who is looking for a forever inside home that will always have food. Brought to the shelter close to starvation, he is now healthy, loving and well adjusted. He enjoys being petted and hanging out in a warm spot. He is a very sweet boy who likes to snuggle.

To schedule a visit to meet Goldfinger, 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 King

King is an American Bulldog/American Staffordshire terrier mix.  He's a sweet boy who just wants to be loved. He's about a year-old and full of personality. Even though he's almost 50 pounds, King thinks he's a lap dog and loves to snuggle. He's a smart boy, but also very stubborn, so he needs someone with patience. He's learning basic obedience and is very close to being house trained. King's currently in foster with a family that includes two adults, an older male dog and a cat. The cat doesn't like him much, but King loves her and can't figure out why she doesn't want to play with him. So far, King's shown no aggression to either the dog or the cat in his foster home, but his boisterous play is occasionally too much for them to handle. King would do well in a house with other animals, especially another young dog to play with him. He could also live with cats, but may have some trouble keeping himself from chasing them if they run from him. He would also do well in a house with all adults or with older children. King could probably live in a house with small children, but will need to be supervised with them until he's learned how to play with them gently. Sometimes he forgets that hands and toys are not the same thing, and needs to be taught what's appropriate to put in his mouth.

Adopt Miller

Miller is a 4-year-old, Golden/Labrador Retriever mix with an awesome personality!  Although he's considered an adult dog, don't let his age fool you because he still has plenty of energy.  In fact, we think he would be perfect for an active family. Miller would love nothing more than to play in the yard or accompany you on a nice long walk. Speaking of walks, he gets a little overly excited when he gets the opportunity to explore his surroundings, and he tends to pull a bit on lead. However, he's very correctable and settles down quite nicely. He loves other dogs, but he's not fond of cats.

Adopt Kimba

Kimba is a 3-year-old American Staffordshire terrier mix. He arrived at the shelter because his owner was evicted from his apartment. He was accustomed to living with another dog, children and lots of activity. Naturally, Kimba very much misses the love and companionship of his former home and is anxious to find a loving, forever home.  Kimba would adore a backyard to play in, and people to love.  He was adopted recently but his adoptive owner found him to be more energy than he could commit to, so this beautiful guy is "back on the market!"  Kimba is a perfect gentleman on a leash and a gentle treat-taker. He is neutered, house-trained, up-to-date on his shots and microchipped.

If you're interested in meeting Kimba 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 Scooter

Scooter is a spectacular looking orange tabby who arrived with his identical twin brother Oliver. The only difference is that Scooter seems to be the more reserved of the two. That is not to say that Scooter is shy or withdrawn, he just fancies himself more of a refined gentleman. Scooter loves to be loved and will come to you very quickly once he knows that he has your attention. He's about two-years-old, so it seems likely that his reserved nature isn't all there is to his personality. Scooter and Oliver don'€™t have to be adopted together, but if your home and heart are up for it, the brothers would love to stay together.

If you are interested in meeting Scooter or fostering/adopting him, 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.
