Tony is a male hound mix approximately 5 years old. He is seeking a family or person who enjoys hugging, napping on the couch and watching him be silly. 


Tony ended up in an overcrowded kill shelter in rural North Carolina.  The Bladen County, NC shelter is filled with hounds this time of year.  As soon as hunting season is over, these gentle creatures are often surrendered to the local shelter.  If they can't find homes, they will most likely be put down due to lack of space.  Thank you to our friends at Eleventh Hour Rescue for taking in another one.  

Tony is about 50 pounds.  He would do well in a home with other pets, but not required.  Tony does not mind being lazy and just lying around the house.  Tony is also most likely heartworm positive, but will be receiving treatment.  Tony has been neutered. 

Please feel free to contact Chris Rogers from the Gio Fund 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 - TONY!  He will be in NJ and ready for adoption in mid April 2019.

Bud is a male hound mix approximately 5 years old. He is seeking a family or person who enjoys hugging, napping on the couch and watching him be silly. 


Bud ended up in an overcrowded kill shelter in rural North Carolina.  He had a commitment, but it fell through.  So the nice people over at Eleventh Hour Rescue agreed to take him.  He is about 50 pounds. 

He would do well in a home with other pets, but not required.  Bud does not mind being lazy and just lying around the house.  Bud has had a successful FHO (hip) surgery to help some joint issues he was born with.  Bud is heartworm negative.  Bud has been neutered.
