Sam's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Sam's Story...
Sam was found in a parking lot in the Bronx... painfully matted and scared. He is an older guy, maybe 10+ but has plenty of love to still give. Sam is in need of a foster or forever home where he can decompress and learn how to be someone's dog.

Despite his previous life, Sam is good with kids, cats and other dogs. He gives kisses and wants to love badly. He will follow his people around, despite hardly knowing them. He understands he is safe now and is longing for a place to belong.

Your first step for adoption is to complete our adoption application at www.apathwaytohope.org. We will then screen your application through a vet reference check, phone interview (this is when you can ask all of your questions over the phone), reference checks (2) and a home visit. Our adoption donation is $300 and includes spay/neuter, microchipping, vaccines and preventatives up to date per the dog's age, health check, fecal / deworming as needed and heartworm testing and treatment as needed. More details will be provided if you are being considered for adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sam, a North Haledon Australian Shepherd/Border Collie dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie for sale in North Haledon, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie dog from a breeder in North Haledon.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in North Haledon already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a North Haledon breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Shepherd/Border Collie breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in North Haledon paves the way for another one to be saved.
