I’m Troy, a 2-year-old Pitbull weighing 62 pounds. After being found as a stray, likely hit by a car, I was brought to the MCSPCA for some good old fashioned TLC! I’m now all healed up and ready for my forever!
My unfortunate past has made me a little cautious around new faces, but my friends here at the shelter have been helping me learn strangers aren’t so scary. For us to bond properly, I would love if my adopters took their time and went slow. Building trust is important and I want us to start out on the right foot. Once I warm up to you though, watch out! I’m one goofy and mushy land seal that enjoys attention and pets. Toys? The squeakier the better! I even love walking on leash with some of my favs in my mouth. Call them my emotional support toys if you will!
If you are looking for a handsome lap-dog to crash on your couch, I’m your dude! 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.
