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 Sam

There's no hiding the fact that Sam's eye is damaged, but he doesn’t care and he’s hoping you won’t either. Sam used to live with people who not only didn’t care about him; they hurt him and his other feline housemates. He has been seen by the vet several times, including an ophthalmologist where surgical options were explored, but they believe Sam would be better served by just leaving his eye the way it is. It doesn’t hurt so the trauma of surgery is not necessary and not what Sam needs. Other than his damaged eye, Sam is the perfect cat. He’s friendly, cuddly and loves the staff and volunteers who love him back. He's a happy boy who loves people and other cats. Sam deserves a home of his own, with someone who loves him so that he never again feels anything but a gentle hand.

If you are interested in meeting Sam 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.

Adopt Mouse

Mouse was left abandoned on a porch where she was eventually confiscated and never claimed by her owner.  Mouse is an older dog and is very sweet and calm. She has been wonderful at the shelter.  In fact, she became an instant favorite at the shelter, but would be happier in a warm home. Mouse just needs a place to live out her golden years.

If you're interested in learning more about Mouse 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 Kali

Kali was born in a high kill shelter in South Carolina. She was rescued with her brothers, sisters and mom, Annie, and brought to New Jersey to be fostered until they are ready for adoption.  Her mom is a Golden Retriever, but we don't have information on what her dad was. As you can see from the picture above, she gets along well with other dogs.  Kali will be ready for adoption on Nov. 23, and will be fully vetted and vaccinated prior to adoption. She will also be spayed by the rescue when she's old enough.

For more information about adopting Kali, email peaceforalllife@yahoo.com.

Adopt Max

Max is an American Staffordshire terrier and Boxer mix.  He came to the shelter when his family lost their home. He is young, affectionate, and super happy to see everyone he meets. He knows quite a few commands, and his volunteer friends are working on teaching him good leash manners. Max has a lot of energy and would love to go home with a person or family who will help him in his training and give him the exercise and attention he craves.

If you're interested in meeting Max 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 Amber

Amber is a petite, sweet and fun cat.   Her foster mother likes to call her the Ninja, as she moves through the house quickly and quietly. She is playful, energetic and full of life. She will even play fetch with the right toy.  Amber loves to be the center of attention and you will often find her wherever you are. She gets along well with adults and children, as well as other cats and some dogs. She is easy going and should have no problem transitioning into her forever home!

To schedule a visit to meet Amber, 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.
