I’m Duke, a fun-loving 5-year-old Shepherd/Terrier Mix weighing 58 pounds. Brought to the MCSPCA when my owner could no longer care for me, I’m ready for my take-two on life!
Baby steps are needed as I’m a strapping fella who can be a bit cautious around new faces and in new places. It’s best that my new adopters have patience and let me settle in at my own pace. No need to rush the relationship, we will for sure bond in time! If you want to help me feel more comfortable in the meantime, bust out those stuffed squeaky toys. I tend to warm up when playtime is introduced, although I like my toys to remain mine, and will lay down with them, often keeping myself entertained.
An athletic boy on leash, my adopters need to walk me with confidence since I get overly excited when I see fellow canines out and about.
This smart and attentive dude is waiting for his forever home…come meet him! 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.
