Open For Walk-Ins Every Day!

I’m Maverick, a 2-year-old Pitbull weighing 58 pounds of stealth. Originally found as a stray, I now feel the need, the need for speed….AND a warm, loving home!

A loose and wiggly dude who can get anxious in new environments, I like to scope out my surroundings, curious of all the nooks and crannies. If I find any toys, I turn into a certified party-boy who gets amped up quickly but can calm down when treats are thrown my way.

A bit naïve when it comes to anything training related, so understanding and patient adopters willing to offer me proper positive reinforced guidance would really help me thrive. I’ve been loving all the new introductions and experiences here at the shelter as they work on my manners, but I tend to get very animated and bouncy…trust me it’s just out of sheer excitement!

If you are ready to fly high with me, I’m looking for the Goose to my Maverick. Could it be you? 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!

Adoption Hours:

Monday 12-5pm

Tuesday 12-5pm

Wednesday 12-7pm

Thursday 12-7pm

Friday 12-7pm

Saturday/Sunday 12-5pm

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!

We are open to the public for walk-ins!

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.
