Uma's Story...
Uma is a cute little 16 month old mutt surrendered by people who had no time for a dog. She is nervous at first but sweet and playful once she warms up, and is under 15lbs full grown. She is looking for an adult home that will provide the training and socialization that were lacking in her first home. Please submit an application if you are interested.

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

Uma, a Oak Ridge Chihuahua/Shiba Inu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Chihuahua/Shiba Inu for sale in Oak Ridge, or seeking a Chihuahua/Shiba Inu 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 Chihuahua/Shiba Inu breeders who help with Chihuahua/Shiba Inu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Ridge paves the way for another one to be saved.
