Avery was found before Christmas on the side of the road with two broken back legs. We rushed her to the vet and she had emergency surgery on Christmas Ever where she had pins placed in her back legs. She has been on strict crate rest since surgery. She is on crate rest again for the next three weeks until her follow up x-ray. She has been the best patient ever and has done great for her laser treatments and for physical therapy. Aside from going outside on leash for potty breaks, she needs to be crated. It is expected that she will be able to walk, play, and enjoy life normally once she is fully healed. She is currently hunkering down at our vet's office but we would really like to get her into a home environment where she can recover. She is just a puppy, at only 6 months old, and has already been through way more than any dog should ever have to go through. She weighs about 40 pounds and she has been great with other dogs. Avery is so sweet and she just wants to curl up next to you for cuddles and affection. Avery deserves compassion, love and a cozy place to rest her head as she heals. We are desperately seeking that special person or family to help Avery get back on track. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Avery, please apply today!
Can you believe that someone tied this package of pure perfection up to a fence and left her to fend for herself? She spent a week on stray hold in our local, inner-city pound, but no one came forward to claim her. We will never understand how people think it is acceptable to just treat animals as though they are trash. We can't even begin to imagine how heartbroken this sensitive girl must have been as she watched her "family" walk away after tying her to a fence. BBB is as short as she is wide.
This thicc girl is ready to start working on her beach bod as she searches for her forever family. This precious angel is estimated to be about 4-5 years old and she weighs about 45 pounds (but really should be under 40). Someone butchered this poor girl's ears off her head which has led to an incredibly painful double ear infection. This has (of course) been left untreated, so who knows how long she has been suffering for. We are so thrilled that she is with us because now she will never suffer another day in her life.
Blueberry Butterball Biscuit is calm, sweet, affectionate and loves to be around people. She ESPECIALLY loves butt scratches! She is also super dog friendly and would be fine in a home with kids. We have not cat tested her at this time, but will update if we are able to.
“We are trying to find someplace where he can live out his remaining time in comfort…he’s a sweet old guy that somebody must have pulled off route 80 and dumped.”
As soon as we read those words, we knew right away that Buttons needed us. With limited eyesight and hearing, this emaciated senior pitbull was left to roam near a major highway, alone and confused. It is a miracle that he evaded traffic and survived on his own. It is even more of a wonder that Buttons’ soul remained sweet despite all he has gone through. His initial bloodwork has indicated that he has lymes disease and his kidney values are elevated. We have also detected a low grade heart murmur and we are in the process of running additional testing to learn more about his health status.
Buttons is estimated to be at least 10 years old and he only weighs about 45 pounds. This sweet, tiny guy is very friendly, playful and seems to get along fine with both cats and dogs.
We have joined with our partners at RBARI once again – because together we are stronger – and are seeking a foster or adopter for sweet Buttons. Fostering is completely free- all medical is covered by the rescue and all supplies are provided as well. Please consider welcoming this beautiful boy into your home, or share his story to help find his perfect match. After many long years, Buttons’ spirit remains strong, and his hope for his best life shines bright – please help us to give him the life and love he has deserved all along.
Hercules is an absolutely STUNNING gentleman who is ready to find his forever home! Hercules is the father of Missy's puppies and he joins our rescue when his owners were no long able to care for their dogs. Hercules is about 3-4 years old and he is as sweet as can be. He bonds very quickly to his humans and is a happy, goofy guy. He is so wiggly and loves to roll over for belly rubs. In his previous home, he lived with children and of course with other dogs. He has been polite towards other dogs on his walks around Hoboken and he has been friendly with everyone he meets. He goes to work every day with his foster dad and he absolutely loves all the attention from everyone in and out of his office all day! He is crate trained, house broken, gentle, sweet, cuddly and loving. Hercules is just as happy to crawl up on the couch with you as he is to go on an adventure.
ADOPTION FEE SPONSORED BY ALLIE AND FRANK DILORENZO. LIFETIME OF TRAINING INCLUDED’ Poor buddy Karlo has been with us for quite some time now and he is wondering when will it ever be his turn? He’s sadly been let down by one human after another which has led to some anxiety and a lack of confidence. Despite all of that, he is constantly seeking approval of those around him and he is desperate for both love and attention. Karlo has been working hard with our friends at AFT Dog Training to build his confidence. He’s been enjoying agility training and they are working with him to help reduce the overstimulation going on inside of his mind 24/7. It is their goal to help Karlo become calm, cool, collected and confident. Karlo is only a year old and he’s a little 40 pound peanut. He does like other dogs and plays nicely with them, but sometimes gets a little too over stimulated. He’s very calm and caring towards all people and he has even been great with children. Adopt Karlo today!
Adoptable Kobe is a gorgeous 1.5 year old sensitive guy who is in search of his forever family! He was returned to our rescue to no fault of his own, and the return has been pretty heartbreaking for him. He is currently in foster where he is receiving the TLC and structure he needs to rebuild his confidence. His foster family reports that the return has definitely taken a toll on this sweet boy and he is just sad and unsure of life at this point. Kobe is sometimes having nervous accidents in the house, which he never used to before. His fosters are working with him on this and we are confident that he will become housebroken again very quickly. Kobe really loves everyone he meets, although he is more shy around men than women. He has done well with dogs in the past and he truly loves to snuggle with his humans. He also enjoys going out for walks or adventures and he is great in the car. We feel horrible for him for all he has gone through, but we know his actual forever family is out there. Once we find that amazing family, this will all make sense.
Mama Missy is ready for the next chapter of her life! She is about 3-4 years old and is a very sweet and loving girl. We will not be entertaining any apps for the puppies until we find something for Missy, so please help us to share and network. Poor Missy has been through a lot but somehow she is still so loving. She takes a minute to realize she can trust you, and from there it is all kisses and wiggles. She has been okay meeting some dogs and not okay with meeting others. We think she would do best in a home with a calm male dog or as your one and only. As a part of our SINGLES program, Missy's adoption fee has been sponsored by a very generous donor. For the month of February, we are also offering a $214 credit at the adopter's vet office. As a gesture of LOVE, Missy's adopters will also be provided with all supplies needed to get started. Missy bonds very quickly to her humans and will sweetly seeking affection and approval. She is crate trained and house broken which is a major bonus. Missy has lived with children in the past and would do best in a home without cats. Fostering is completely free- we cover all supplies and vetting and can even help transporting her to meets or appts as needed
