Story
Dipper is a sweet baby, always ready to give someone love and receive some in return. He is very loud and loves to use his voice to talk to people. He is great with babies and kids. Dipper has never been around cats before, but he is great around other dogs. He loves to play with people and he's the best cuddler. I hope that someone will love him just as much as I do, or more. He deserves so much love and attention because he's such a sweet boy.

Story
I’m Panda, or Panda Bear as my friends call me and my pretty exotic good looks are unBEARable if I don’t say so myself. I’m a 1 1/2 year-old 55 pound free spirited Pittie girl who is looking for her partner in crime. It takes patience to build my trust, but once you have it, you’ll have it for life. I’ll make you a proud pet parent with all my stu-PANDA-us skills and tricks. Described as an “obedience rock star”, I already know Sit, Down, Paw…..you name it, and I can learn it! Building a relationship is a marathon, not a sprint….but I’m ready and willing for the adventure if you are! The Monmouth County SPCA is open for walk-ins every day starting at noon!

Eatontown, NJ
Size

Details
Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
I’m Tommy B, a 2-year-old Pitbull weighing 59 pounds of happy-go-lucky energy. On a recent day out with my shelter buddy, I was the goofiest little sidekick! Not to brag, but during my car ride, I was a 5-star co-pilot. In between car zoomies and sniffing the air, you’d find me trying to wedge up front for infinite ear scratches and kisses. Once we got to the park, you might as well have called me Sherlock, as I was interested in investigating everything! I may be an athletic boy but I’m easily distracted with treats, calm pep talks and butt rubs. After a fun afternoon of exercise, I curled up in the car for some ZzZzZs. If you are looking for a fun companion to explore the great big outdoors with, I have the heart (and ears) for you!

Since you should always remember your vegetables, I’m one smiley boy who would be a yummy addition to your home! The Monmouth County SPCA is open for walk-ins every day, starting at noon!
