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

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

Adopt Duchess

NJ adoptable pets: Duchess (EASEL Animal Rescue)

Poor, sweet, and sad Duchess. She was given up because her former caretaker could no longer care for her. He worked long hours and wasn't home enough for her. She is a gentle 4-year-old who very much acts like a puppy. She is a little shy with people initially, but then wants to be your constant companion after she has a minute to warm up to you. She is always at her foster mom's heels. Duchess loves dogs and will completely light up and go straight into play mode when she sees them.

She is currently sharing her home with two small dogs, three rabbits and two adults. Duchess loves everyone in her foster home, including the bunnies. We think she is cat-friendly, since she gets along fine with the rabbits, but has not been formally tested. Duchess is completely house-trained, crate-trained, leash-trained, and knows some basic obedience. She loves to entertain herself with dog chews or just lay around and look at her foster family longingly. Duchess seems so thankful to be out of the shelter and would love to have her forever home.

To adopt Duchess, 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 Beauty

Adoptable NJ Pets: Beauty (Sammy's Hope)

Beauty lives up to her name and then some. She has a gorgeous reddish brown coat and loves to give and get kisses. She can be reactive around other dogs in close proximity, but is otherwise a very good walker and gentle treat taker. She's great with children as well. Come visit her at the Edison Shelter.

To learn more about Beauty, or to schedule a visit, contact Sammy’s Hope by email 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 Sinbad

NJ Adoptable Pets: Sinbad (Sammy's Hope)

Sinbad is a ladies man extra extraordinaire. With his beautiful tuxedo coat and black mask, he appears to be a man of mystery but the truth is, there is no mystery to Sinbad. He loves everyone he meets! Sinbad enjoyed the first 9 years of his life in a comfortable home where he was loved but life circumstances forced his people to move and they were unable to bring Sinbad with them. Sinbad is neutered, current with his shots and front declawed. He is guaranteed to be a welcome addition to your home and will always act the perfect gentlemen.

To meet Sinbad, or to learn more about him, email cats@sammyshope.org for more information. You can download a PDF copy of the adoption application form here or you can see more adoptable cats from Sammy’s Hope here.
