I’m Lil Bow Wow, an 7-month-old Pitbull Mix weighing 54 pounds. Dropped off as a stray that was never claimed by their owner, I’m waiting for my second chance here at the shelter.
One powerhouse of a pup, I thrive on attention! Don’t get me wrong, I love playing with plush toys, but I’d be happier lounging by your side or on your lap being affectionately pet. A young growing boy who doesn’t realize his own size or strength just yet, it’s best that my new adopters keep play and pets at a calm level. Not one to rough house with, I can get amped up quickly from overstimulation jumping from 0-60 real quick!
To help get my energy out in a positive way, adventuring outside on long walks or running out my zoomies in a yard would be fun for everyone involved!
Ready to add a happy pittie into your life? 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.
