I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.

Rita-UPDATE!'s Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Rita-UPDATE!'s Story...
Rita's biopsy came back and her mammary tumors were benign! She's doing great and is a sweet happy little lapdog who loves attention and is great in the car and housebroken. She has been spayed, had a dental, and her bloodwork was all normal so all she needs now is a home!

Poor Rita- found abandoned and brought to a local pound, this sweet senior does not deserve to be homeless at her age. About 8-10 years old, she has several mammary tumors that were a direct result of not having been spayed by her previous owner. She was filthy and matted with horrible horrible ear infections that showed she has been neglected for a while. Even if you can't adopt, we are in desperate need of donations toward her care.

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 www.secondchance.petfinder.com 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.


Can't adopt but still want to help this dog? Click on the "Sponsor Me" button at the top of this page to donate toward his/her care! All donations are tax-deductible and go directly toward the care of our rescue dogs. Thank you for your support!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rita-UPDATE!, a Oak Ridge Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Oak Ridge, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier 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 Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
