"Watson is a five year old shepherd mix, who is neutered, house & crate trained, and up to date on all shots. He absolutely loves playing outside, chasing tennis balls (his all time favorite toy) and zooming around a fenced yard. When inside, Watson loves his chew toys and tug toys - but they don't last long enough for him! Watson is leash trained, currently using the gentle leader, and enjoys his walks around the neighborhood or park. He looks forward to his daily treats, especially peanut butter, cheese, and chicken. Watson's favorite part of the day is spending time sleeping on the couch next to anyone who will stay put and understand that couch time is for relaxing. Watson is currently on anxiety medication, as he is a nervous pup at times and struggles to control his anxiety without help. Due to this, he would do best in a home with no children or children that are older and understand that he likes his space. While Watson has gotten along with cats and other dogs in the past, he is looking for a home where he will be the only pet (selfishly, he wants you all to himself during couch time!). Above all, Watson is looking for a home filled with love, understanding, and patience. He hopes that you will give him a chance."


His name is Luke! He's a 2 year old shepherd mix, weighing about 60 lbs. not sure what else it is as he was a rescue dog. He's microchipped, up to date on shots and vaccinations, and neutered. Can provide all medical information from vet.

He has absolutely no health issues and loves his purina pro plan. Is not food aggressive.

He's house trained and crate trained, knows stay, come, sit, lay, paw and fetch.

He's a very affectionate dog. Loves to lick and always loves to be by a person. He loves to run and play catch with his tennis balls but is also just as comfortable as laying on the couch or bed right next to you. I haven't met one person he hasn't loved. I got him during the height of covid so I can't say how he has around dogs or cats as he hasn't had a ton of interaction. He's such a sweet dog. He's been great around children as well. He just loves people. His favorite treat is an cube believe it or not.

Otis 2

This is our beloved boy Otis. He is an 80lb, 9 year old pitmix (we did the genetic testing which I can provide the results). My husband and I rescued him when he was a little over a year old from the MCSPCA. Having a tough first year at life, we gave him all of the love in the entire world to make him feel comfortable. We have have had him for 8 years. As you can see from the photos, he loves to be outside, sleep, and just relax with someone keeping him company nearby.
Otis perfect home with be low key, with no children.


Ellie is a sweet and cuddly 8 month old American Pitbull Terrier puppy looking for her furever home. Unfortunately, Ellie has to be rehomed because she and the current owners older dog don't always see eye to eye. Ellie loves people, including small kids therefore would do best in a home where she is the only dog.

Ellie is potty trained, up to date on her vaccines and knows basics commands (sit, stay, come, back, off and paw). Ellie loves to cuddle and play outside. Interested parties will need a fenced yard where she can exercise throughout the day.

The most handsome sweet loving puppy is up for adoption at Save The Animals Rescue Team II (START II) the local non-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer animal rescue group located in Englewood, NJ.

START II welcomed into their care Royce who was a local owner surrender. Why did they give up this beautiful puppy? Because they could not be bothered with him and caged him all the time in an apartment before deciding to turn him over so he can find a home that will love him and care for him forever.

Royce is now approximately 10 months old as he came to START II approximately Wednesday October 12. Royce is a typical Husky puppy. With that he is an amazing, energetic smart puppy who loves to play and run around so a fenced in yard is best. He is neutered and up to date on all routine shots. Royce can play with other dogs however, should be the only dog. Being he was never cared for properly, Slightly older children would be best as he will be a good size and strong when an adult.

Royce will make a great addition to just about any family. He is just a love bug who wants to give love in return. Royce and his friends are waiting to meet you. Come visit at Royce in person and fall in love! He along with his friends will make your heart melt!

If you or anyone you know who may be interested in adopting Royce, please call Marge at 732-330-6692.

In addition, please help rescues by spreading the word to others the importance of Spay/Neuter. There are many programs to help those in need. We MUST stop Littering as it's a matter of Life and Death!
