Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Daryl has settled in like a perfect gentleman in his foster home. We pulled him from the shelter where he had been for the last 4 months since coming in as a stray. He is very polite, friendly and always wants to be in your lap. Daryl is crate trained, potty trained and quiet in the household. He seems to really love "tubby time" and thoroughly enjoyed his first warm bath with us while. He is super dog friendly, so much so that Daryl was used to dog test the new dogs that came into the shelter! He is super playful with other dogs and would love a fun sibling to play with or even play dates with friends. This boy has been nothing short of a sweet, perfect house guest while in TLCAR's care and would make a great addition to any household! Located in Cape May Court House, NJ.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.February 16, 2024, 12:15 am

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Stanley came to us from a local a local shelter where he was brought in as a stray with obvious marks and scars of being abused, neglected and possibly used for a bait dog. Despite his rough start to life, Stanley is an extremely sweet boy who is unbothered by everything around him. He is docile, calm and has stolen our hearts here at TLCAR. Stanley is currently in a foster home with a small dog and a young child. He’s done wonderful with his interactions with other dogs and is doing very well learning what life should really be like for a pup! He does need work on walking on a leash, but we presume he has never been leash walked before. He has zero food aggression and even met some kitties at the shelter with a tail wag and calm reaction. Stanley’s scars and missing bits here and there tell us that he has endured things no young pup should ever have to experience, but despite all of this, he has remained resilient, happy and nothing short of a wonderful house guest! This sweet, sweet boy deserves the world and a life to me of love. Please apply to adopt Stanley on our website at https://www.tlcarescue.com/info/adoption .

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Snoop came to us from a local shelter after his family dumped him there about a year ago. They got a new puppy and Snoop didn't get along with it. Snoop made lots of human and dog friends at the shelter. He is doing well with basic commands and loves attention. He’s a really great pup! Good with dogs and people, but unfortunately not cats. He’s a Super happy boy (now that he’s off death row!!) who loves riding on the golf cart, playing with his new friends and of course snuggling on the couch!

Story
Maggie is a 1 year old Great Pyrenees. Shes a really great dog. Lovable, protective, and a wonderful companion. She has lived here on the farm since she was 8 weeks old. Our farm has electric net fencing and it works for all of our dogs and farm animals except Maggie. She just barrels right through it and everyone ends up getting out. She needs a 4 foot permanent fence to keep her in. We have been bringing her in the house but my husband is allergic. I am hoping to find her a loving home! She is use to other animals. Goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, Turkeys, other dogs, and cats. If you think Maggie is the perfect fit for your family or working farm, please respond to this ad..
