Peter is a 9 year old chihuahua mix looking for a quiet home. He needs a little time and patience to trust, however when he feels comfortable, he is just wonderful. He loves to cuddle, snuggle and be petted. He loves to go on walks and spend time in his yard. If you give him the space and time he needs to settle in, you will see just how loving he can be. He will be happiest in an adult only quiet household as he is very frightened of unfamiliar people. He gets along well with other dogs but could be an only dog too. He is housebroken and sleeps in his crate all night! This sweet guy needs a chance to have a forever home where he can love and be loved.

We are the Burlington County Animal Alliance (BCAA)located in Central New Jersey. We are a non-profit organization 501(3)(c), all volunteer rescue that saves animals from our local shelter and surrounding areas of New Jersey that are in danger of being euthanized. We take them into our program, get them the necessary medical care they need and adopt them back out to loving forever homes. We have 60 volunteers, many that open their homes to foster the homeless animals, we do fundraisers to raise money so we can continue to save the dogs and cats in need. We run strictly on donations from our adoptions and people who support our work.BCAA adopts to families in New Jersey, parts of Southeastern Pennsylvania and parts of New York.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with the applicant filling out an adoption application for the pet they are interested in. When they have completed and submitted the application, the screening process is started, which consists of a vet check, phone interview and home visit. Once all the steps are completed, we determine, by our findings, if they are approved, and if so, then they are allowed to adopt from our organization. The final step is they must complete the adoption contract, along with the donation for the animal, which goes into our medical fund to defray their medical costs. All of our animals are spayed and neutered, up to date on all their shots, including rabies, they are parasite free and on heartworm preventative.
