SAVE is a non-profit animal shelter dedicated to protecting the health and welfare of homeless companion animals in the greater Princeton area. SAVE houses approximately 75 dogs and cats at a time, and helps an average of 400 animals per year. SAVE’s main goal is to find the best possible homes for the animals in their care. To achieve this, SAVE has a comprehensive adoption process that involves community outreach, adopter screening, animal behavior counseling, and follow-up services. Many adopters have returned to SAVE to adopt pets again and again.
SAVE offers a “Seniors for Seniors” program, which is an attempt to connect senior citizens with animals that need love and a new lease on life. Through this program, SAVE will waive adoption fees for senior citizens (65 years and older) who are willing to welcome one of our mature (8 years and older) cats or dogs into their hearts and homes. This program was developed to help find homes for the many mature cats and dogs at their shelter. These cats and dogs are usually already trained and housebroken and can be a lot calmer and easier to handle and care for, especially for older people. The personality and size of the animal is fully developed, so what you see is what you get!
Sarah is a Boxer mix that was brought to SAVE in March from a rescue center in Oklahoma. She is a total social butterfly! Sarah is an active girl that loves toys playing outdoors. She is looking for owners who can keep up with her. She will thrive with an experienced dog owner in a home without young children or cats. Sarah knows a few commands and gets along well with some dogs, but not others.
Porsche is a four-year old domestic short hair that arrived at SAVE in October of 2015. She is a sweet, loving cat that adores lots of affection. She is such a cuddler, yet it is hard to see her true personality due to the stress of living in a shelter. She is a cat lover’s dream! She needs a kind and patient person who will give her a chance to demonstrate her true colors.
