NJ101.5 has partnered with local animal rescue organizations EASEL Animal Rescue League and Friends of EMAS (Edison Municipal Animal Shelter) 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 Kovu

Kovu was brought in by a Middlesex County College student that was forced to surrender him because he was spraying everywhere.  We took him to get neutered and the spraying has stopped. He is a loving, sweet cat who likes to be rubbed on his head. Kovu is a gentle giant.

If you're interested in meeting Kovu or fostering/adopting him please email us at EAS@edisonnj.org. You can see more adoptable cats from Friends of EMAS here or download a PDF copy of the application form here.


Adopt Nina

Poor Nina appears to have been dumped after she had puppies. She was very scared when she first came to the shelter, but she’s warmed up since. Nina cries for attention and would very much like to have a home. She’s very sweet, has a gentle personality and bonds to people instantly. Nina would be best as the only animal since she’s not good with dogs or cats.

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


Adopt Toostie

Tootsie is 10-months-old and has a beautiful coat the color of a tootsie roll.  She's sweet as candy.  Toostie is very friendly toward everyone she meets and she likes to take nice walks, swim in the pool and be petted.  She knows several commands and loves to be rewarded for doing them with treats!

If you're interested in meeting Toostie or fostering/adopting her, please email us at EAS@edisonnj.org. You can see more adoptable dogs from Friends of EMAS here or download a PDF copy of the application form here.


Adopt Suzie

Suzie was trapped as part of a TNR project, but a volunteer noticed she was not a typical feral kitty so he decided to bring her home and foster her. Although colony cats tend to take a bit longer in gaining your trust, Suzie has been making huge strides and is doing rather well! Suzie loves to be pet, especially on her belly, and is becoming more and more comfortable being around other cats. She's very loveable, and is now willing to sit with volunteers on a couch or chair. Suzie is about 4-years-old, spayed and current on her shots. All she needs now is a place to call her own and lots of love.

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