Attention all lap dog lovers... Have we got a gem for you! Meet sweet Lola... Lola is a 6 year old Dachshund mix. We are not really sure what she is mixed with, but maybe a Schnauzer? She has a little nub for a tail. Lola is the perfect lap dog at only 14 pounds. Poor Lola found herself in the shelter when her owner was moving and they could not take this little girl with them. The shelter is a scary place for any dog.... Lola was beside herself. She had only known life in a quiet home. Lola's foster mom saw her sweet eyes and she knew that Lola needed someone who would understand her and allow her to decompress.

When Lola arrived at her foster home, she was scared and shaking. Her foster mom took her into her arms, gave her a kiss, and told her that everything was going to be just fine. Lola has not looked back since! Lola immediately attached herself to her foster mom. She is shy when meeting new people, but with a slow approach, she will seek out attention and welcome petting. Lola lived with another dog prior to arriving at the shelter. She also gets along very well with the large (and calm) resident dogs in her foster home. Because of Lola's size and timid nature, we recommend that Lola go to a quiet home without small children. She is very afraid of loud noises and quick movements.

Lola enjoys long walks outside. This helps her get her nervous energy out. Once back in the house, she will curl up and take a nice long nap. When possible, she loves to do this in her foster mom's lap! This sweet girl has so much love to give. She just needs a person or family that will give her the time that she needs to feel safe and comfortable.

If you are interested in providing Lola with the loving forever home that she deserves, please fill out an application and come meet her at our next adoption day event.

Lola is spayed, up to date with her shots, microchipped, and house trained.

Check the events page on our website for more information and directions to meet our dogs.

About Shelter Survivors

About Our Rescue Group...

Shelter Survivors was formed to serve the needs of dogs that have been brought to shelters in the tri-state area, by providing loving and expedient rescue, foster homes and placement with a great measure of compassion and through teamwork with you and other rescue groups and shelters. Our focus is primarily on shelter dogs, and we work with local shelters to help communities in our area. We believe in saving the lives of shelter dogs, one dog at a time.

Shelters Survivors is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Any financial support to help us care for our animals is very much appreciated and we also need dog food, crates of all sizes, beds and blankets for the pets in our care.

We do not have a shelter so we don't have visiting hours.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please note that Shelter Survivors does not run a physical shelter but uses a unique network of loving foster homes to house the animals awaiting adoption. To meet one of the animals that you find on the web, come to our adoption days (see the "events" page of our website) or send us an application at Most of our adoption days are at PetCo in Raritan (off of the Somerville Circle).

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our animals, go to our website at and download our Microsoft Word dog application, or use our "online application."

Adoption Fees:

Adoption fees are donations to Shelter Survivors, not payment for value received, and are based primarily on the age, health, and temperament of a particular dog, and our expenses. Shelter Survivors is not an actual shelter, and we are not subsidized. Most shelters receive municipal funding, while Shelter Survivors operates on adoption fees and donations. All of our members are volunteers, and none of us receives a salary or payment of any kind. Our funds go 100% toward the care of our dogs, primarily for veterinary expenses. Volunteers usually pay the costs for transport, fostering, phone calls, postage, and adoption screening out of their own pockets.

The adoption fees range from $200.00 to $300.00, which is a bargain when you consider that spaying/neutering, testing, training and inoculations are usually included. Any difference in fee is noted in the description of the individual pet. Many animals have been micro-chipped.
