Miley, currently up for adoption at the Edison Municipal Animal Shelter, is an elegant, sleek cat with a relaxed, loving and gentle spirit. She loves to engage people with her amber eyes and will meow until she gets attention. She enjoys cuddling and is very affectionate. She will dazzle you with her playful ways and charming personality. Miley is spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations and FIV/FeLV negative.

If you're interested in meeting Miley or adopting her, please email us at EAS@edisonnj.org or call us at 732-248-7278. You can see more adoptable cats from Friends of EMAS here or download a PDF copy of the application form here.


Adopt Zeus

Zeus was brought to the Ewing Animal Shelter after being found wandering behind ShopRite on Olden Avenue in Ewing. He is a friendly dog and knows how to listen, but is impulsive and has a tough time sitting still. He seems unsure around other dogs, but isn't necessarily aggressive toward them. It appears that he wasn't socialized, but seems to do fine when properly introduced. Zeus is a powerful dog, but can walk well on leash. He is currently in a foster family with two other dogs, and his doing well.

If you’re interested in learning more about Zeus or to schedule a visit, email dogs@easelnj.org or call 609-883-0540. Find more of EASEL’s adoptable dogs and puppies here or download a PDF copy of the application form here.


Adopt Tyson

Tyson, a Black Labrador retriever mix, is one of the newest residents at the Edison Municipal Animal Shelter. Energetic and playful, Tyson loves to play ball with a companion. He is very inquisitive about the world around him, often sniffing and exploring on walks. Tyson's very attentive to his human and is very eager to please and follow directions.

Currently, Tyson is learning to properly walk on a leash. He will often look up to his human with his big brown eyes, asking for guidance. Once adopted, we recommend continuing leash training. Tyson is very puppy-like, bouncing around with a pep in his step. He would do wonderfully in a home with some space to run around and explore.

If you are interested in adopting Tyson or fostering/adopting him, please email us at EAS@edisonnj.org or call 732-248-7278. You can see more adoptable dogs from Friends of EMAS here or download a PDF copy of the application form here.
