Oh my gosh, oh my gosh…over here, over here! I see you looking at me, and I know that my wiggly, excited body is just cracking you up. My name is Sissy, and I am a 3 year old Pitbull mix. I am LOADED with personality and sweetness. I have been here since October 14, and I am so ready to be adopted by my forever family. Don’t you just love my black and white coat?! The volunteers are calling me a mini Pitty, and sometimes a pocket Pitty…heck, sometimes it is just plain old Sissy Pitty! I am a sweet, friendly girl who loves just about everybody. Seriously, how cute am I?!# I get along with other dogs, but as always, a meet and greet will be necessary if you should have any other dogs in your home. OH, did I forget to say that I am house trained in my intro? What could be easier? I am an adoption waiting to happen. Who could resist me? No one, I tell you, because that is just the kind of gal that I am. HA…you are still reading! That means that you want me…oh, you know that you do. Just so you know, I was found as a stray. It is so hard to believe that my family have not come for me, but their loss is your gain! I certainly will not let this get me down. I am keeping my options open. There could be a whole new world out there for me to explore (or at the very least, a whole new backyard!) As you can probably tell by now, I just cannot contain my enthusiasm for life. I am a snuggle bug who just wants to be loved. I like children, and I am a very easy walker. The volunteers tell me that I am spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on my shots. I could be the love of your life if you let me. Please come down to the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter and ask to spend some time with me…I am waiting! 11/20/17 4:58 PM

Meet our beautiful Aria. She is a 10 year old, tan brindle, Terrior/Pit mix. This lovely lady came to us from Puerto Rico. She arrived at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter on October 6. It has taken us some time to get this sick girl well (pneumonia), and now we are looking for potential foster to adopt families. Basically, we are looking for a foster fail! We know what you are thinking…hmmm, 10 years old, a senior. We can give you a million reasons why you should not pass this special girl up, but ultimately, the decision will be yours. However, we can certainly make the argument for her…1) she is house trained and very clean; 2) senior dogs need love just as much as puppies do; 3) she is the ultimate couch potato, low energy dog and will be so easy to love and care for; 4) easy to walk; 5) non-reactive, sweet and friendly; 6) senior dogs have a greater attention span than puppies, which makes them easier to train; 7) adopting this girl may save her life! We would like to expand on #7 a bit…this sweet pickle has made the long trek to NJ and has recovered from her illness. Her will to live is extraordinary, and the love of a very special family may extend her years on this planet. Our hope is that Aria will find a family that understands that her past may not have been the best, but her future could be amazing. Are we tugging on your heartstrings yet?! Come on, take a chance. Foster this wonderful dog, and dare to tell us we are wrong about her. Come down and meet her between 12 and 4 all week and until 7pm on Sundays! 11/20/17 4:58 PM

CALLING ALL SPECIAL-NEEDS-CAPABLE MOMMIES AND DADDIES… Meet our Negrito. He is a small, black Chihuahua mix. This little guy is 10 years old, and requires a very special family to meet his needs. He came to the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter from Puerto Rico on October 13. He is a sweet and friendly boy who may need to take off a few pounds. He has been quite the couch potato, and it would be great if his new family would help him get into a little better shape. Negrito is very easy to walk, so even a daily jaunt will help him to shed a few. It is important to note that his adoption fee will be waived, as this munchkin will need to be on heart meds for the remainder of his life (pulmonary condition). As bad luck would have it, he also has TVT, which is sexually transmitted from dog to dog, so Negrito would have to be the only dog in the household. This cutie just cannot catch a break! We know this boy has needs, and on top of that he is a senior…the cards are stacked against him. That being said, seniors deserve love too. This handsome, chubby fella wants nothing more than to give love and receive it. If you rescue him, he will rescue you with the size of his heart, and the warmth of his disposition. He is quiet, reserved and loves attention. We cannot say enough good things about him. Negrito is micro-chipped and up to date on his shots. Come on down to the shelter and spend some time with this handsome boy. He will melt your heart. We are open daily from 12 - 4 pm with extended hours until 7 pm on Weds.

Hello there. My name is Helen, and I am a 6 year old Dachshund mix. Based on my appearance, I would have to say there is a little ‘Chi’ in me, but no one knows for certain. I am going to be completely honest with you now, so pay attention. I recently had a ruptured skin tumor mass removed from my side…can you see the stitches? I am healing nicely, and it really does not bother me at all. I am considered a ‘special needs’ baby because there are no guarantees that I won’t have another cyst. It is the chance you take to love me. I promise to make that love worth your while. The volunteers here at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter tell me that my adoption fee will be waived for any qualified family wishing to take me home. I am a spry chick who loves to be near you. I will follow you anywhere you want to go. I also do not mind being held. I love the warmth of a cuddle. The volunteers have been taking excellent care of me, and I will be forever grateful to them. My shelter mates have been very accommodating, and I love to see them go back and forth from their walks. I would not mind having a brother or sister to spend time with, but as always, a meet and greet would be necessary to be sure that I am the right fit. I basically get along with everyone, so I am easy to love and will fit right in with your family. I let you know when I have to tinkle (or, you know, the other thing), so please always pay attention to my body language. I am spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on my shots. I know that the right people will read this note, and come running down to the shelter to snatch me up. I am so worth it! We are open daily from 12 - 4 pm with extended hours until 7 pm on Weds.

Meet our beautiful Old Glory. She is a 10 year old German Shepherd mix of black and tan. German Shepherd dogs are known for their strength, obedience and courage. They are valued for their tenacity, intelligence, loyalty and focus. Glory is the epitome of the Shepherd breed. There is no doubt that she is a staff favorite. The Somerset Regional Animal Shelter took Old Glory in from Liberty Humane in Jersey City back on September 18. We just know that someone in this area will step forward and give this gorgeous girl a welcoming and loving home. She deserves to live out the rest of her years in comfort. ANYONE would be lucky to have her! Old Glory is house trained and super smart. She is a cuddle bug extraordinaire, and loves to lean into you while taking in a good movie. She has a bit of arthritis, so she does take joint supplements to keep her comfortable and walking. She adores her squeaky toys and a frozen Kong now and then. These things can keep her entertained for hours. She is appreciative of everything that is done for her, and she shows her gratitude with so much love. We believe this girl would be very happy with a male doggy roommate or as an only pet. Of course, a meet and greet is always suggested to be sure that everyone gets along. Old Glory is spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on her shots. We just cannot say enough good things about her. She has inspired us, and she will inspire you. Please come down to the shelter and ask to spend some time with her. 11/20/17 4:58 PM

Okay, so I need to have a serious discussion with you. My name is Black Jax, and I am an American Staffordshire Terrier mix (black) at approximately 3.5 years old. I arrived here at the Somerset Regional Animal Shelter on September 21. If you can believe it, I was returned. Oh yes, you heard me right…returned! This face, returned! Let me explain please. I came here from the Newark Shelter in Feb 2017 . I was absolutely adorable (well, still am), and I was adopted immediately. Of course, at that time, I was rocking a svelte physique. Anyway, I digress…the family who originally adopted me has now split up, and they felt the need to bring me back here. Not only have they discarded me, but they have packed 50 extra pounds onto my body that I now need to shed. Really? Do you know how hard it is to lose weight at this age? I've already lost almost 10 lbs! I am your typical Stafford…I wiggle like crazy when I am excited. The volunteers here say that I am a complete mush-ball, and I love attention, belly rubs and ear scratches. I was raised with love, and I do not have a mean bone in my body. I am a dog selective kind of guy, so if you have other canines at home, a meet and greet will be necessary to make sure that I am the perfect fit. I love my toys, especially my frozen Kongs…it keeps me busy and happy. I am so friendly and will smother you with big sloppy wet ones whenever you need to be kissed. I would be great in a family with older kids who know how to treat a dog, and who would love to take me for longs walks or even a run so that I can shed this unwanted poundage. They tell me that I am neutered, micro-chipped and up to date on my shots. You can just move me right in, and we will be slappy happy together! My attitude is great, and I truly believe I can accomplish anything with the love and help of my forever family. Come on down to the shelter and spend some time with me… 11/20/17 4:58 PM
