Open For Walk-Ins Every Day!

I’m Paulina, a 3-year-old, 48 lbs. pretty pittie who embodies the meaning of resilience. Found as a stray, so we don’t know my exact story, but my scars suggest that I was possibly used as a bait dog.  Thanks to the MCSPCA, I’m blessed to have escaped an unfortunate life and now am ready to finally find my happily ever after.

Despite my background, my spirit remains unbroken and I’m ready to embark on a new chapter filled with compassion and love. For my first forever home, I’m looking for a peaceful place to adjust at my own pace. I’ve already done wonderfully in a foster home as an affectionate lady. All the attention and playtime I can get will help me feel like the Good Girl I know I am, along with a little proper training to get used to my new routines.

While I sit and wait for my adopters, I have been enjoying my time at the shelter by playing with a few canine pals. So I could go home with a well-matched dog sibling!

Though I have a few scars on the outside, my heart is healing and ready for all the unconditional love we’ll give each other. Interested in adopting me? The Monmouth County SPCA is open for walk-ins every day, starting at noon!


How to Adopt a Pet

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.
