We are open to the public starting Wednesday 5/19 for regular adoption hours!

Hiya friends, I’m Forrest! Since I’m a dog and can’t have chocolate, I’ll tell you that life is like a box of assorted dog treats – you never know what you’re gonna get!


I’m a 3.5 year old houndy boy who came to the MCSPCA from a really overcrowded shelter. I’m lucky to have made it to New Jersey because I don’t know if I would have ever found a family otherwise. I’m a sweet and silly boy who’s really gentle but sometimes a little timid, especially with loud noises! I would do best with kids 11+ and a could possible go home with another friendly dog as long as they’re respectful of my space. I weigh 50lbs but I’m a little skinny so a few pounds on me wouldn’t hurt! I hope you can take the time to appreciate my southern charm! 

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!

Open to the public starting 5/19
Masks + distancing guidelines will be followed.
You are still encouraged to make an appointment ❤

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.
