Facts about Rocco Homeless Too Long

  • Breed: Rottweiler/Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
We rescued Rocco from a Phila. shelter. His life was turned upside down last year when his Dad passed away, and his Mom gave him to another family to take care of. But he ran away and ended up a stray in Phila .at the shelter. No one came to claim him to take him home. So we can hardly blame him for being a little leary of strangers. Rocco is so loving to those he knows well and who takes care of him. Rocco is about 8 yr old, weighs about 55 lb. and loves to take walks. He also loves playing in the water, like lakes and creeks.

Rocco's favorite past time is playing Fetch with his Squeaky Tennis Balls, He is great at catching the ball on the first bounce. We can tell this was something he learned early in his life in his previous home.

Rocco just needs someone who lives a quiet life, and doesn't have a lot of activity in their home. He could be someone's loving companion and Best Friend. He would be devoted to his person.(s) Rocco deserves a chance to be loved, to play fetch in his own yard and enjoy life

About West Jersey Volunteers for Animals

About Our Rescue Group...

West Jersey Volunteers for Animals (WJVA) is a non-profit group formed in 1998 by four volunteers determined to improve quality of life and medical care for homeless animals. We do not have a facility and rely on foster homes for the dogs we rescue from crowded shelters. Our adoption fees and donations are used to pay for our medical expenses. We spend thousands of dollars every year on saving homeless animals.

Our group is all volunteers with years of experience providing homeless animals with affection, exercise, medical care, foster homes, training, and publicity. During the past 18 years, our group gained a great deal of wonderful contacts and support in the areas of general animal care, veterinary care, pet grooming and boarding, training, resolution of pet behavior problems, food donations, and fundraising. We are dedicated to continue to build our community partnerships to carry on our work on behalf of homeless animals.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an adoption application to be filled out, a meet and greet with the whole family. We also do a home visit when we are ready to finalize the adoption. The home visit provides an opportunity for the adopter to see the dog in their new environment, and allows us
to review recommendations for a smooth transition for the dog and family.

Our adoption fees range from $150.00 for dogs 9 years and older, $250.00 for dogs up to 8 years old.
All adopted dogs are spayed/neutered, have appropriate vaccinations, and microchip identification. They are also tested for Heartworm and Lymes and on preventatives.

Those adopting pets from the West Jersey Volunteers for Animals are required to:

*Provide a loving home for the animal during its lifetime.
*Treat the animal with respect, affection and as a member of the family.
*Provide indoor living accommodations.
*Provide annual veterinary examinations and treat any ailments, disease or injury in a timely manner.
*Provide the animal with proper food, water, and training.
*Provide appropriate exercise, toys, companionship, mental stimulation and socialization with other animals.
*Keep identification tags on the animal at all times.
