VOLUNTEERS WRITE:

We weren't quite sure what we were getting ourselves into when we decided to bring Emma home for the day. Shelter life is not easy on her or any dog especially with her being there almost 9 months. When we got home we expected her to bark and try to run like she does in the shelter environment. Instead, when we took her inside, she sniffed around calmly like she'd lived there forever. We couldn't believe it. In addition, Emma loved our own bull mastiff, Moose. She also loved our 9 pound, sometimes temperamental Havanese and he really took to her as well which isn't usual for him. She went into the bedroom and as it turned out, she loves to cuddle in bed. She knew "sit" and "paw" on command. She was very obedient and knew to stop when told "no". She enjoyed sunbathing and rolling around in the grass. So there you have it. Emma loves other dogs, small and large. She is house trained and loves big comfy beds. She is NOT the same dog she is in the shelter, and is really loyal and affectionate. The next time you see a dog like Emma, remember to take into consideration that the dog you meet in the shelter environment is not going to be the same dog you have at home. Give her a chance, we promise she'll be forever grateful and so will we!

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.
