This dog is part of our shelter outreach program where we take dogs from overcrowded shelters in hopes of finding them a forever home here! We generally do not have much background info on them and cannot guarantee they are housebroken.  They are all up to date on vaccines, spayed/neutered and microchipped.  

 Hi!  My name is Louise and I was pulled out of an overcrowded shelter down in Tennessee.  Some kind folks rescued me and I lived with them for almost a month before I was brought up to the Jersey Shore to find my forever home.  I’ve been through a lot these past couple months so it does take me a little time to settle down and trust people.  I was originally picked up as a stray so I’ve really never known the love and kindness people can give.  When I was in my foster home, I Ioved to go for car rides and long walks.  I also like one-on-one time with people and I LOVE to be brushed.  Toys really aren’t my thing, I prefer to hang out with my person.  I am housebroken! Whoever takes me home must give me some time and patience.  I would do best in a calmer home with no youngsters.  I myself am about 5-6 yrs old and I like my people over 12!  I did live with other dogs and was fine with them but I do protect my food.  That’s another thing I will need some work on.  I had to forage for myself so I'm not used to other animals  near my food.  I know with some time and proper training, I can get better at this….I promise!  I really am so happy to be up in NJ where I know someone will take me home and love me forever!  

Update: November is also Adopt a Senior Dog month and this gal needs a home!  Louise has waited much too long for a home of her own and the light in her eyes is beginning to fade.  As she sees all the younger dogs around her going home one by one....her heart sinks and her hope diminishes.  She lights up when the volunteers come to take her out for a walk and spend some quality time with her; she especially loves to be brushed.  Almost 7 years old, Louise came to us with severe ear infections.  After multiple vet visits it appeared she was suffering from allergies.  Potential adopters need to be able to keep up with veterinary care and her prescription food diet (Royal Canin HP).  She also gets Glucosomine/Chondroitin and Omega 3 supplements.  She would probably be happiest as an only pet...she's not a fan of cats at all!  Louise longs for a warm soft bed to lay on and someone to love her unconditionally



*Per JSAC policy, puppies and kittens under 6 months will not be adopted to families with children under the age of 6 years.



About Jersey Shore Animal Center

About Our Shelter...

Jersey Shore Animal Center is committed to the care of unwanted, abandoned, sick animals and to the adoption of these animals to responsible, loving homes. To that end, veterinary care is provided as needed, medication and inoculations are given and neutering/spaying is done prior to adoption unless the animal's health or age precludes this procedure.

In addition, a compassionate staff tends to providing for each animal's physical and emotional needs, taking care to keep each one sheltered, clean, well-fed and socialized.

Adoption Process

Our friendly, knowledgable team of staff and volunteers would be glad to give you a tour of the shelter and discuss whether one of our furry friends is the right match for your home.

The JSAC has careful policies on the placement of young animals, dominant breed dogs (Rottweilers, Shepherds, Akitas, etc). Due to our lifelong return policy we prefer to adopt our pets locally, so we don't adopt out of state. We prefer homes in the region so that we can be a resource for the animals and their adopters. These policies and procedures are in place to protect everyone involved and are very common when rehoming animals, whether through a shelter or a rescue group.

We do not have "same day" adoptions. Rather, an application for an animal is reviewed to ensure that 1) the home has taken good care of their other animals * 2) The animal is permitted in the home and 3) that it is the right home for the right animal (choosing dog that likes cats if cats already in household, etc..). Typically this process takes 24-48 hours. If a dog application is approved and there are other dogs in the home, we have the two (or more) dogs meet; many times if necessary.
