I’m Verrazzano, a hunky 5 ½ year old Pitbull weighing 55 pounds. Found abandoned in the streets, I don’t want to be abandoned again.
Despite my backstory, I remain a happy and charismatic dude. I can get bubbly and bouncy when excited, so it’s best that my adopters have an active lifestyle to match my energy. I would love a life filled with leashed walks, lots of toy play, and outdoor adventures. One who also enjoys the company of his people, I will turn all loose and wiggly when I’m both receiving and giving attention. Get ready for the infamous “pittie lean” as I love getting all the pets.
If you want an easy to please kinda guy, you can’t get better than me! 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.
