I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking

Mario's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Mario's Story...
Adorable Mario was dumped by his owners and brought to a local animal control facility. He was dragging around a huge heavy belt-like collar which he was too scared to let the ACO's remove, and is very fearful and distrustful of people right now. He looks like he wants to make friends and we are hopeful he will warm up to us quickly. He's only about a year old and is getting neutered and his mats shaved this week and will soon be looking for a dog-saavy adult home to continue to socialize this cute scruffy schnauzer mix. Please email njwoof@cs.com if you are interested in him.

We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage www.secondchance.petfinder.com and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mario, a Oak Ridge Miniature Schnauzer dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Miniature Schnauzer for sale in Oak Ridge, or seeking a Miniature Schnauzer dog from a breeder in Oak Ridge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Ridge 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 Oak Ridge 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 Miniature Schnauzer breeders who help with Miniature Schnauzer rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
