Rocky is a male American Pit Bull Terrier approximately nine months to one year of age. He is seeking a family or person who enjoys hugging, napping on the couch and watching him be silly. 



Rocky ended up in an overcrowded kill shelter in rural North Carolina, but we don’t have much more information on him.  He is 50 pounds and full of smiles.

He would do well in a home with other pets.  Rocky is still in his puppy years, so he still tends to jump up to give you a big hug. Rocky is energetic and playful, but he also does not mind being lazy and just lying around the house.  Rocky has not yet been neutered. 

Please feel free to contact his previous foster home in North Carolina, Chris Rogers at 973 975 8383 or crogers@giofund.org for more details.


If you'd like to meet him, please complete an application at www.ehrdogs.org & be sure to mention his name - ROCKY!  He will be in NJ and ready for adoption on Saturday, August 31st.

BIG NEWS! NEW EXPANDED SUMMER HOURS!



Starting Tuesday, July 2nd,
we will be open Tuesdays from 10am to 5pm.

WE ARE NOW OPEN TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY,
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY FROM 10AM TO 5PM!

We Will Be Closed Thursday, July 4th

WE WILL BE CLOSED ON THURSDAY, JULY 4TH

ENJOY THE HOLIDAY!

Please remember that the week of the July 4th Holiday is one of the worst weeks for shelter dogs. Due to the high amount of dogs who get lost during fireworks shows, many shelter dogs are euthanized when the shelter reaches capacity.

What can you do to help?
Keep your dog secure at all times. Use a leash whenever you take your dog outside.

Don't set off fireworks in developments or other highly populated areas. Instead, go to see the fireworks show hosted by your local town or city.

Foster a shelter dog. Freeing up space in the local shelter saves lives. Often shelter animals are only euthanized due to lack of space.

Adopt. Never buy. Adopting from a shelter directly impacts the unwanted pet population. Breeding dogs for profit only adds to the problem.

Support your local shelters and rescues. More resources allows us to save even more lives.
