I’m Kerry, a 9 yr old shepherd/curly-coated retriever. I am a dignified older lady with a gorgeous black wavy coat. I am a bigger dog, so I weigh around 80 lbs. Luckily, I am extremely polite, gentle, and kind. As I got older, my heart only got bigger and more filled with love. 🙂
I recently arrived at the shelter as a stray from Bayonne. I was clearly someone’s pet and was well cared for, yet my owners did not come to reclaim me. That’s okay. I am still joyful and full of life, and I can’t wait to find my new family. I am looking for a home where I can be the only pet and I just know someone is going to fall head over heels in love with me!
As I mentioned, I am easygoing and respectful, although I do have a spunky side! I walk well — although sometimes I’m excited to be out and can tug a bit! — can sit on command, and am a real pleasure to be around. I really enjoy being outside in the grass and fresh air! Since I am an older gal, although I have some spirit to me, I am not overly energetic or silly. With me, you get an elegant lady who just wants to be your best friend, and, of course, love you. Doesn’t that sound good!
I have already made so many human friends here at the shelter, who praise me for my gentle and affectionate nature. I have quickly become a volunteer and staff favorite! Thank you for reading all about me! This senior lady has so much life and love still to offer. Please visit me soon and let me charm you with my wonderful personality. I can’t wait to meet you!“Rescue Madness” is a social media charity contest aiming to raise awareness and money for 16 animal rescues around the country in 15 days.

Each “LIKE” gives you 1 entry into a raffle for over $2,500 in prizes, while each $1 donated offers 5 additional entries.

Sandwiched between the Turnpike, the Liberty Science Center and a sewage plant, our little facility (not much more than a converted garage) is filled to the brim with people who care about animals. Our committed staff and amazing volunteers work hard every day to offer the best possible life for the animals unfortunate enough to lose their homes – until they can move on to their forever families.
Our little garage has served us well, but in order for us to go on providing much needed services to the animals and people of Jersey City, Hoboken, and beyond, we need to expand. In addition to continuing to provide the housing, daily care, basic medical care, and adoption services we have in our current facility, the expanded building would contain additional housing for dogs and cats, an on-site veterinary clinic, offices, training facilities, and public spaces.
Just think of it. A progressive shelter in an area that is easy to get to, with plenty of parking and room to grow. Equally important, the shelter will continue to be managed by experts committed to ending animal overpopulation and irresponsible ownership.
Won’t you join our efforts to make Jersey City a better place for homeless pets? Learn more about the shelter and its residents on this website, and browse the volunteer opportunities listed. If you value what we do and really want to support us, consider making a donation. Together, we can make a difference
The DoggyBnB app makes it simple for pet owners to get a dog sitter from friends and recommended pet sitters nearby using personal relationships and trusted connections. It’s the first pet care solution that is network based, using a three degree connection system, similar to that of LinkedIn. With just a few screen taps, pet owners crowdsource their pet care needs through push notification (called a “Woof”) to their network of friends and sitters at once, with time and rates that work for them. Requests can be for dog sitting, home dog boarding and dog walking. Friends or sitters in your network can respond to the request based on their availability or they can extend their options to book sitters pet owning friends love and trust too. Our mission is to create an inclusive community of pet care options at your fingertips with the people you trust and care about the most!Learn more about DoggyBnB: www.doggybnb.
