My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Hilda is currently working closely with our trainers and staff to be the best dog she can be and not quite ready for a home...if you have a calm adult low-traffic home, preferably with just one woman and would be interested in meeting her please email for an appt

Hilda is an adorable petite middle-aged mix left behind when her owner was evicted. She is very energetic and playful, loves her toys, hikes, and car rides and is a lot of fun for the right person! She does take time getting to know new people and prefers women to men, and thinks it is her job to protect her loved ones. She is a quirky little girl looking for an adult home with someone who understands her and many people coming and going where she can be introduced slowly to new people. She gets along with some dogs and we can arrange for her to meet your other dogs to see if they would be a fit. Please submit an application from to meet her.

More about this shelter

Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge, Inc. is founded on the belief that all animals have a natural right to humane treatment including proper care and safe shelter. Due to overpopulation, there are insufficient homes for most cats and dogs. Some are lucky enough to find temporary shelter and a few even find permanent homes. However it is a devastating fact that the majority are either euthanized or forced to chance life without shelter.

To support our belief and to relieve the unnecessary suffering of animals, we shall:
1.Extend every effort to find, evaluate, and secure good adoptive homes for animals in our care.
2.Provide animals with medical services and behavior therapy to the extent of our ability.
3.Adhere to a “no-kill” policy: animals shall not be euthanized for the purpose of providing space for new animals.
4.Adhere to a 100% spay and neuter policy.
5.Maintain continuing humane education programs and in particular to schools.
