I’m Polly Pocket, a 2-year-old Pitbull weighing 41 pounds. Found as a stray, it’s now time for me to find my forever!
New faces and places can make me anxious, so my adopters need to understand that it will take time to bond with me. After all, good things come to those who wait!
Once I warm up, you’ll see that this spunky gal enjoys her playtime. But it’s best that we keep it low-key as I can get amped up quick! I have played with some pups here at the shelter, so it’s a possibility I could go home with another well-matched compatible canine companion!
If you want a peppy, high-spirited pittie, then I’m your girl! 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!
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.
