Rocky, who is declawed in front, is friendly, loving, curious, and playful. At the shelter, he enjoys having his head rubbed and will butt your hand until you comply! His previous owner reported that he lived with cats and dogs, and is fine with both. He likes all adult humans and older children, as well. He made a great alarm clock in his previous home — always waking his owners up to get his breakfast. In fact, Rocky has not missed too many meals. At more than 21 lbs., this 10-year-old kitty needs to shed some weight! Rocky was brought to the shelter through no fault of his own because his owner became ill and allergic to him. His adoption fee has been prepaid by Save-A-Senior, a program of the Friends of the Burlington County Animal Shelter!
Remmie is a distinguished-looking Staffordshire terrier with very soulful eyes! He is four- years old and weighs 78 pounds. He has had the bad luck of being surrendered twice due to changing living situations of his owners. Remmie needs an experienced dog owner because he is strong and needs leash training. In the past, he has had some issues with men, but shelter staff and volunteers have been working to help him overcome those. He would do best in a home without other pets. He is a great dog for the right adopter!
