I’m Blaze, a 2-year-old Australian Shepherd/Border Collie Mix weighing 43 pounds. Surrendered to the shelter when my previous owner felt I was too much for the young children in the home, I’m ready for a second chance at a new beginning.
Being in one home for the start of my life, you can imagine my confusion being dropped off at a shelter. I was scared, often using my voice letting new faces know I was unsure. My new adopters will need to understand that it may take some time before I’m truly comfortable with new people and new places. Building trust is a must!
Once I know I’m in a safe place, I’m an energetic guy who will solicit bouncy affection and attention. If you are aware of my breed, you’ll know I will need lots of exercise and would love a new family with an active lifestyle keeping me busy.
If you’re looking for a pup who loves attention and adventure, I’m the one for you! The Monmouth County SPCA is open for walk-ins every day, starting at noon!
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.
