It's time for another Adoption Monday!

Our friends at the Monmouth SPCA get their dogs for a variety of reasons, and this week's friend Rocky is definitely deserving of a new chance at life in a forever home.

Rocky was found abandoned in a crate in the woods and was absolutely petrified of everything when we first rescued him, including people. He has come a long ways now with special thanks to a wonderful foster family who has taught Rocky to enjoy interactions with people and enjoy a dog's life.

 

He is estimated to be close to 2-years-old is a terrier mix who absolutely loves to play. He can be very shy at first but he is sweet and once he gets to know you he will shower you with lots of kisses and cuddle up to you. He does absolutely love other dogs and can play for hours on end with them.

He is a smart boy too who has learned lots of commands such as sit and paw and more. Please call ahead since he is with his foster family but we would love to set up a date with him for you. It will be love at first sight!!

Adoption Monday is sponsored by the Monmouth County SPCA, which provided the following info on its mission and history:

The Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was founded in 1945 to care for the community’s homeless, neglected and abused animals. The MCSPCA is not affiliated with any other shelter or welfare organization. We are not affiliated with, nor do we receive a majority of our funding from the Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, or the Associated Humane Societies, Inc.

Our mission is to protect and advocate for all animals. We are dedicated to enforcing animal cruelty laws; providing a safe haven for homeless, abused and abandoned pets while they await adoption; reducing pet over-population through spay/neutering; and cultivating their humane treatment through education and service as a valuable community resource.

Our vision is to be established firmly with our own unique identity throughout NJ and the animal welfare community as a leader in all things related to animals in Monmouth County and the people who care for them. We will be responsible for ensuring that all animal abuse is prosecuted and will increase our support of campaigning for the rights of animals in NJ. We will be a strong partner with other animal welfare organizations throughout the state in order to develop and share best practices, and to work together to make NJ a place where every animal is treated with respect, kindness and love.
