Mylo's Story...
Mylo is an adorable 8 year old mini schnauzer who has narrowly escaped death twice... His elderly owner couldn't care for him anymore and turned him into the ACC shelter in NYC where he quickly ended up on their nightly euthanasia list due to his age. A rescue pulled him and adopted him out, but then when he became nervous of a male visitor in the adoptive home and nipped, the rescue's answer was to take him back and euthanize him. Luckily we heard of his story and had to help this misunderstood guy who has been failed by the system and so many people in his life. He's doing well in foster so far and is a cuddly sweetheart sure to charm anyone who loves this intelligent sensitive breed. He needs an experienced "schnauzer person" who understands he can have a nervous and protective side, and a calmer adult home without too many people coming and going. He didn't do well with the tiny dogs or cat in his temporary home but seems fine with dogs his size and bigger in foster so far. Email if you would like to help this special guy.

We do not have a shelter- all our pets are in foster homes and can be seen by appointment only during the week, or at our weekly pet adoptions every Sunday at the Animal Clinic of Morris Plains from 12:30 to 3PM at 3009 Route 10 East next to 5 Star Car Wash (formerly Boulder Car Wash) in Morris Plains (Denville on GPS). To help us better match a pet to your household, we request you fill out an application on our homepage and copy and paste it into an email, or print it and bring it to our adoption day when you come. Local inquiries only please- we do not do long distance adoptions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mylo, a Oak Ridge Schnauzer (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Miniature) for sale in Oak Ridge, or seeking a Schnauzer (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Oak Ridge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Ridge already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Oak Ridge breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Schnauzer (Miniature) breeders who help with Schnauzer (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
