August Pet Adoption News

If you read my regular blog entries or follow me on Instagram, then you’ve probably seen pictures of my two fur children, Mercutio (cat) and Teddy (pup). Suffice it to say, I am a pet lover.

I often find myself browsing through websites of NJ shelters and adoption clinics in an effort to get the good word out for some of their adoption-ready cats and dogs. Every few weeks, I like to pull together info and send them out to my network of friends, family, and clients.

If you or someone you know is ready to adopt, or you just want to help spread the word, please pass along the info below.

And of course, I’d love to know if you wind up adding to your family.

Curry is a little spitfire that likes to do her own thing. She lets you pet her when she wants it but otherwise, she is happy to run around and be ‘little miss independent”! She is only about 8 weeks old now so she can easily be persuaded to be a little bit more affectionate with some more cuddling.

He is super cute, soft, huge ears and big eyes!

My name is Marley. I am a super sweet boy who was recently brought to SAVE because my family was no longer able to take care of me. I am an older boy but don’t let my age fool you I am super spunky. I absolutely love going on long walks and running around the big play yard here at SAVE. I tend to get a little sassy and talk back when I really want you to pet me or go for a walk. I am the sweetest most loving boy.
