I’m Atlas, a quirky 1 ½ year old Mixed Breed Boy weighing 46 pounds. Originally a transfer from Thailand, I’m ready to find my forever home here in the States!
All my traveling and change in surroundings, has left me a little nervous, especially in new places. Until I’m comfortable with you and your home, it’s best to keep an eye on me around exit points. I can be a bit skittish, and may turn into a track star if I’m spooked. The best way to help me settle and feel comfortable is with gentle and calm affection. I’m definitely a loyal companion in the making; I just ask that my adopters have patience, letting our bond strengthen at the right pace. Since I would love all the attention to myself, I would need to be the only spoiled pet in the home.
Interested in showing this newbie to New Jersey the ropes? The Monmouth County SPCA is open for walk-ins every day, starting at noon!
How to Adopt a Pet
Can't adopt? Join our Sponsor a Pet Program!
We only do adoptions in person (please bring all family members).
We will ask you to fill out an Adoption Survey and speak with an Adoption Counselor to help find your perfect match!
You can save time and fill out a survey online, they are also available at the shelter. Completing a survey does not secure any animal for adoption. You do not need to submit a survey to visit, nor do you need to receive a response to a survey to visit. The survey is NOT an application that needs approval.
Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment, so finding the right match is very important.
Finding the perfect pet takes time. The process usually takes at least an hour, so please plan accordingly. All adoption paperwork must be submitted to the front desk one hour before closing.
Adopters are encouraged to bring their own carrier or leash and collar.
