I'm Jemma and before you read this, you might want to go get a box of tissues. You see, I've lived in a shelter for over 3 years. I'm not really sure why no one has wanted to adopt me. I'm really very sweet. I love hugs and I thrive on attention. But I don't really enjoy sharing my space with other dogs or cats at the shelter and would enjoy being your only furbaby. It might also be because I'm not really crazy about being around kids. But I'm sure you know humans who feel the same way. Just ask a teacher (kidding :) I am about 4 years old, house broken, crate trained, and don't have any food or toy aggression. I walk
well on a leash. I love to give hugs and kisses! I understand many of our volunteers adore me. (You can even ask them!) So would you please give me a chance? All I need is a little love and affection, kisses and hugs. I promise, you will see what a truly amazing dog I am!

About Bergen County Protect and Rescue

About Our Shelter...

Bergen County Protect & Rescue is a True No-Kill Animal Welfare Facility located in Cliffside Park. It was founded in 2012 by Eastern Bergen County's very own Animal Control Agency, Bergen County Humane Enforcement. The idea of creating a no-kill facility came to be when animal control officers were forced to take lost and abandoned animals to surrounding veterinarians and animals shelters with no knowledge of where their final destination would be. In most cases, the animals were treated and adopted out to loving homes while others were euthanized.

Inspired to help make a difference in the animal world today, BCP&R was created. Today, we are a 501c(3) non-profit, volunteer operated, no-kill animal shelter. We are grateful to all the rescue groups, veterinarians, shelters, volunteers and donors that helped make BCP&R what it has become today. Their guidance and support has empowered us greatly.
