Zelda, 4y 50lbs, is a level 1 which is the best rating. She is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, very sweet and loving. She loves going out for walks and eating. When someone is home she will follow, likes to share same space in the same room. Zelda plays with her squeaky toys, loves to cuddle and give kisses to the owner. She has been kept mostly indoors and sleeps on the couch. Initially timid so no small children but lived with older children without any problem. Don't wait to apply for this girl. NO experience with cats unfortunately so can't say definitively how she would be.

All our dogs are in NY/NJ area generally and can be adopted out of state depending on where, we prefer to meet our adopters but occasionally transport can be arranged.

Many of us (cats/dogs) will be on display on Saturdays and Sundays, weather dependent--please ask by writing us at and following us on FB. If you are seriously interested in adopting one of us in particular, please fill out an application by Friday so that we can be sure to be there. Otherwise we decide based on other variables. Usually we are in our foster homes so this is a bit more stressful and a slightly artificial environment but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes too.

Please consider providing a home for more than one dog, especially if you are considering adopting a puppy. Dogs are pack animals and very much enjoy as well as need other dog company to learn to play, socialize and be good companion animals to people. The upside to this is that you won't feel as guilty leaving them alone and you get twice the love. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster or volunteer, and you can always donate!
