We think our furry buddy, Pete, will take your breath away.
This very handsome 9-year-old tabby is just about perfect.
In return, Pete asks just one favor. You see, he is occasionally a little breathless himself, because he has asthma. But it is easily controlled with his inhaler, which he does not mind at all as long as he gets his treats afterwards! Pete thinks this is not a lot to ask in return for all his awesomeness, and we agree.
Pete is hoping his fur-ever friend will walk through our doors very soon. Won’t you consider taking this special boy into your home?
You might describe our little friend Casper as a hidden treasure.
This handsome 9-year-old Chihuahua came to RBARi with his sons, Boo Boo and Polo, when their family was moving and could not take them. Casper is a gentle soul who is a bit overwhelmed by the sights and sounds of a shelter, and has been shy since he joined us.
But those who are able to give him a bit of time to set his own pace find that Casper has a lot of love in his heart and gives it freely to someone he trusts. A volunteer who sat with him in her parked car to give him a quiet refuge was delighted when he nosed in her pocket seeking a treat, looked excitedly out the car window to wag his tail at the highway traffic, and finally gave her kisses and curled up in her arms for a long leisurely nap. He showed her affection every time she came to see him.
We know there is a special person out there for Casper who will see past his timidity to his good heart, and be rewarded with a loyal friend. He would do best in a calm adult home, and we suspect that he would love being a spoiled “only child,” but the company of a calm and friendly small dog might also work.
Recently, Casper went into a foster home, waiting for someone to give him a forever home. Do you think you have what it takes to be Casper’s forever buddy? If so, call us at 201-337-5180 to make an appointment to meet him.
New Jersey could be the first state making it illegal to declaw cats and Bergen County animal rescue workers are hoping the measure moves out of the Senate sooner than later.
The federal government plays an oversight role to a large number of businesses that involve animals, and they use the 1966 Animal Welfare Act (AWA) to oversee that work. The types of businesses range from circuses and zoos to domestic animal enterprises such as laboratories that test on animals, as well as something we work on very closely at Best Friends, commercial animal breeding facilities (better known as puppy and kitten mills).
