New Jersey

Emma - Chester, NJ ADOPTED!!

This adorable creature is Emma!  She is a 2 yr old, 40 lb, female spayed Pit/Cattle Dog (or something like that) mix!

Emma was originally surrendered to the Associated Humane Societies Newark Branch because of landlord issues. She has abnormally large muscles in the front portion of her body which is believed to be either muscular dystrophy or myotonia congenita. There is no cure for either and we have been managing it with medication.


This causes Emma to fall over at times but it doesn’t stop her!  She has no idea that she is special. She is well adjusted and a happy girl who literally smiles all the time. No matter where we go with Emma she is greeting people and making them smile too!


Emma is good with all dogs and although we do not think she would hurt a cat she is overly interested in them , so no cats. Emma will have a shorter life then she should but has several years left. We would love to find her a home where she can happily spend the rest of her days.

For more information please email: or call: 201-891-7652.

Princess - Dumont, NJ

Meet Princess!  She is a 4 yr old, 10 lb, female spayed Yorkipoo.

Princess is a good little girl who unfortunately went after a big dog and ended up losing her eye.  This makes her very minimally special needs but she does qualify!  

Princess is  a spunky girl who bonds wholeheartedly to her person.  She needs a home with no other pets with and people who have time to spend with her to help her acclimate and settle in.  They will never regret it as she is a wonderful companion!

She is available within a couple hours drive to her rescue.  For more information, please email:

Genie - Bayview, NJ  ADOPTED! (2/23/20)

Meet Genie!  She is a 9 yr old, 13 lb, female spayed Chihuahua.

Oh my heart! Her rescue says, "this is a precious, precious, precious girl...and did we say precious?" Sweet Genie is finally ready for her new home. The positives:  Genie is adorable, has an amazing personality, fantastic disposition, and does a happy feet dance when she sees you.  Genie is great with kids, housebroken, and fine with other animals!  In the Chihuahua world, that makes her a true unicorn.


Genie has Cushing's Disease. She will be on lifelong medication (called Vetoryl - about $40 a month at Walmart Pet Rx).  Her adoptive family will have to keep up with her vet care but she is so worth it, we know she will be the perfect addition to any family.


Her adoption fee is $125 and includes health exam with all diagnostic testing already performed (bloodwork, consults, ultrasound), up to date vaccines, microchip, spay, deworming, and 30 days of free pet health insurance. Also she just recently had a dental :). So she has clean teefies! 🦷 Applications can be found on our website! We do require our adopters to come to our foster's home to meet and pick up their pup!

You can visit the website or email for more information:  Genie is adoptable to any state as long as her adopter comes in person to meet her.
