Hot Days, Cool Treats!

As the temperatures rise, it can be a challenge for pets and their people to stay cool. Of course, there’s always ice cream! While some dogs do just fine with their people’s sweet treat, why not try one of the suggestions below to avoid tummy troubles all together!

For the canine in your life, try Frosty Paws (available in vanilla or peanut butter) or Yoghund (available in apple cheddar or papaya peanut butter)! Found in most local grocer’s freezer sections, these treats come in packages of four for less than $5.00! It’s fun watching your pal get to the bottom of the cup!

Cats also love a cool treat: Try freezing ice-cube size portions of their favorite wet food! Or, drop a few ice cubes in their water dish!

Merlot – Special Needs Dog Adoption – Monmouth County SPCA, NJ

Name:     Merlot

Age:         1 year old

Sex:         Female

Breed:     Terrier mix

Hi! I’m Merlot and I am a 1 year old terrier mix who is ready to find a home to call my own. I am not your average gal as I am special…I am deaf!!!  I was lucky enough to find a special foster family who has experience with deaf dogs and they are teaching me hand signals so I can communicate with them without hearing them. I’m doing great as I have already learned to sit, stay, down, and come just from hand signals!!!

I am an active girl who loves to play, especially with my canine friends.  We love to play together and then we often crash together on the couch for some snuggle time. I love my human friends too and often try to climb in their lap and give them kisses! [click to continue…]

Name:     Giraffe

Age:        3 years old

Sex:        Female

Breed:    Terrier mix

Hello! My name is Giraffe and I am 3 year old terrier mix.  No one seems to know how I got my name… lol! My original owner had called me Jewel which works, since I am a beautiful jewel!  I came to stay here at the Monmouth County SPCA after my last owner had to move and was not able to take any pets with her.  I can be a shy girl at first so I am hoping to have a nice quiet home without too much chaos so I can unwind and relax. It might take me a little time to warm up you at first, but once I do I will be snuggling up to you for some attention and cuddle time. [click to continue…]

5 Great Reasons to Adopt or Foster a Senior Pet

The plight of a senior animal in a rescue or shelter is heart wrenching.  An animal likely used to living in a home, with a family and a comfortable routine can become extremely depressed, confused, and listless when finding itself suddenly sequestered to a shelter, surrounded by unfamiliar people and animals.  The fate of many senior pets that have been relinquished is often a sad one, as well.  Finding adopters for older pets with less energy, a shorter lifespan, and a greater potential for health problems is next to impossible, often leading to the humane euthanasia of these trusty and loyal companions.  For someone who may be interested in adopting a senior pet, but still unsure whether it is the right decision, listed below are only a few reasons to consider taking home a golden aged dog or cat.

They have more love to give
Sure, puppies and kittens are great, but there is nothing that rivals the amount of love a rescued senior has to offer.  Seniors recognize better than any other dog or cat that the person saving them from the shelter deserves every ounce of love and affection they have to give.  If you want a constant companion and adoring best friend, consider an older pet.

They are better behaved
Unlike younger animals, senior pets are less likely to have been relinquished to a shelter for behavioral reasons.  Instead, seniors often come to shelters because their aging owners are no longer able to care for them, have moved into assisted living, or have even passed away.  Senior pets are likely already housebroken or litter-box trained and have good house manners and basic obedience skills.  [click to continue…]

Meet Jack! Playful Pup Friend of River Run Pet Sitters!

Nickname:     Captain Jack

Breed:            Australian Cattle Dog

Birthday:        June 1st

For straight-up exercise or playtime, Jack totally loves the outdoors! He is a regular on the hiking trails near his house and he loves strolling the neighborhood. But Jack’s front yard is also his personal playground and he goes absolutely ga-ga for his soccer ball! We keep trying to get the ball by him, but this guy is the best goalie we’ve ever met!

Jack can also be a real couch potato: He LOVES Animal Planet and keeps his paws crossed for the bad guys to be apprehended on every Animal Cops episode!

Jack is a rescue from the Monmouth County SPCA. His mom was immediately drawn to his energy and spunk and they’ve been a happy family ever since. Now that’s what we call a “Jack”pot!

[That’s Jack, above, enjoying some sunshine. He gives new meaning to the term “dog days of summer!”]
