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 Harlow

Harlow is a beautiful Blue Point Siamese mix who was found as a stray and brought in to the shelter. It’s hard to believe that such a glamorous cat was just roaming the streets. She is safe now and looking for a loving family to take her home. Harlow is a little bit shy, but she warms up when anyone gives her some attention. She's spayed, vaccinated and FIV and FeLv negative.  She is currently at the shelter's PetSmart location on Rt. 27 in Edison.

If you're interested in meeting Harlow or fostering/adopting her, 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 Mikey

Mikey is a 7-year-old male Basset Hound and Bulldog mix currently in foster care. He is very good with other dogs and kids. He is house-trained and also does very well in a crate. Mikey is in good health, up-to-date on all shots and is neutered. He takes a daily pill for minor skin allergies. He was born with front ankles that don’t work perfectly, but he walks OK and even runs a little.  However, too much activity gets him tired quickly, so he’s not as active as some dogs. He is a very loving dog.

If you’re interested in learning more about Mikey or to schedule a visit, email dogs@easelnj.org.  You can also contact Mikey's foster directly at 862-203-0559 or at david.dome@united.com.  Find more of EASEL’s adoptable dogs and puppies here or download a PDF copy of the application form here.


Adopt Desi

Desi is a young, handsome Pit Bull mix who was found as a stray. His coat is a brindle color with a bright, white chest. The first thing you will notice about him is his big pointy ears, almost like a rabbit. Needless to say, Desi is famous here at the shelter because of his adorable ears! He’s very active and full of playful energy. He loves to go on long walks and is always looking to explore the world. Desi is learning to walk on a leash and is working on some commands. He is progressing very nicely and we are proud of how well he is doing. He is very alert, aware of his surroundings and very interested in other dogs. Desi would do best in a loving home where training, positive reinforcement, long walks and creative play is part of his daily routine. His true potential would be reached if he were enrolled in a formal training class. A fenced-in yard is preferred.

If you're interested in meeting Sonny or fostering/adopting him, 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 Patty

"Patty Mayannaise" is a confident and adventurous kitty. This feisty girl will follow you around the house like a puppy and keep you amused with her kitty antics. She is curious about everything going on and likes to investigate by patting things with her paw. She's a sassy little girl looking for a family with active kitty experience. Patty is currently being fostered, but she is looking forward to meeting her forever family.

To schedule a visit to meet Patty, 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.
