2y 14lb Alex is a small white dog who was found alone in the park. He allowed finder to walk him but when she tried to pick him up to place into a car he snapped at her hand. Alex came into the shelter and did not do much besides sniff around during intake. He was calm when being scanned but did not want to walk on leash with counselor and needed to be carried which he was fine with. He allowed counselor to collar him with no problem.  He has been shaved down, these are before and after fotos.  He is in rehab in PA as of Aug 15th and we will be looking for an understanding home for him to decompress in forever very soon.  He will be avail for adoption so please submit an application if you think he is the project you wish to help.

Many of us (cats/dogs) will be on display on on Sundays and sometimes on Saturdays--please ask by writing us at dogs@zanisfurryfriends.org and following us on FB. If you are seriously interested in adopting one of us in particular, please fill out an application by Friday so that we can be sure to be there. Otherwise we decide based on other variables. Usually we are in our foster homes so this is a bit more stressful and a slightly artificial environment but we do want to be seen and find our furever homes too.
 
Please consider providing a home for more than one dog, especially if you are considering adopting a puppy. Dogs are pack animals and very much enjoy as well as need other dog company to learn to play, socialize and be good companion animals to people. The upside to this is that you won't feel as guilty leaving them alone and you get twice the love. Please come! And if you can't adopt, maybe you can foster or volunteer, and you can always donate!

About Zani's Furry Friends NJ Outpost

About Our Rescue Group...

Primarily we pull cats/dogs from the overcrowded municipal shelters when they are about to be euthanized usually for simple colds as space in all of these shelters is an issue. By freeing up a cage, we actually provide a temporary cage to the next cat or dog coming in. Most of these are wonderful family pets who are given up--they deserve another chance at life.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Saturdays at Corrado's Pet Supply Market Clifton NJ 12-3

Sundays Petco E86th/Lexington NY, NY 12.30-5.30

Our Adoption Process...

adoption process consists of application, reference checks, interview w/ the adopter, interview between adopter and adoptee, home visit, and in most cases a suggested donation
