Open For Walk-Ins Every Day!

I’m String Bean, a 4-year-old Pitbull weighing 55 pounds. Found starved and abandoned in an apartment complex without any food or water, I was thankfully brought to the MCSPCA where I’m now at a healthy weight. Hoping to never be abandoned again, I’m looking for a loving forever home to come scoop me up!

Wiggly and curious in new places, I’m very friendly with new people and enjoy calm pets and attention. Break out the toys and I’m one fun dude who can play a nice game of trade and fetch! Keeping playtime to a low level is best as it’s suggested not to rough house and get me amped up.

Outdoor adventures would be exciting for me, just make sure you don’t skip your workouts as I can be mighty athletic on leash. Hook me up with a harness though and we all will be good to go!

Since you should always remember your vegetables, I’m one smiley boy who would be a yummy addition to your family! Come say hi! 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.
