Open For Walk-Ins Every Day!

I’m Sue, or Big Sue as my friends like to call me! I’m a 7-year-old Senior Hound Mix weighing 97 pounds. Sadly, my owner passed away and no other family members came to take care of me, so here I am at the MCSPCA waiting for someone to take a chance on me again. I was brought to the shelter along with the other resident dog, who found her new home, so it’s now my turn!

Don’t let my age fool you, I still got some pep in my step during walks and being a big girl can be mighty on leash. Good thing is I move slow, following my nose wherever it wants to go. I am a Hound after all!

I can be pretty demanding of your attention, even using my “houndy voice” to get it. Once I have you locked in on me, I would love if you showered me with calm attention and gentle pets. Feeling content and relaxed, don’t be surprised if I fall asleep at your feet!

If you’ve always wanted a low maintenance senior to be your loyal companion, I’m the one for 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.
