Nellie's Story...
Nellie is a darling 8 year old yorkie who spent her whole life in a cage in a puppy mill. She's safe now thanks to our friends at No More Tears Puppy Mill rescue and is at our vet getting a makeover and medical care for the first time in her life. She's timid but sweet and already starting to enjoy human attention, and will be looking for a calmer adult home with at least one other doggie companion to help her feel more comfortable. Please email if you are interested in this sweetie or email an application from our website She is located in Northern NJ. The puppy mill rescues all come to us in need of extensive and expensive care to help them recover from their pasts- grooming, spay/neuter, dentals, treatment for ear and skin infections, and sometimes tumors removed, hernias repaired, and other ailments. We need your help so we can continue to help these victims of neglect and cruelty- our vet bills are already out of control but as everyone knows we have a hard time saying no to dogs in need! Please donate through our paypal on our website to be a part of their rehabilitation.

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 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

Nellie, a Oak Ridge Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Oak Ridge, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier 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 Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
