Adorable Pups Graduate ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center, Ready for Adoption

At the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in Madison, New Jersey, we work to treat fearful, undersocialized dogs who need our support before they’re ready for adoption. We’re thrilled to announce that three former victims of animal hoarding—Waffle, Juniper and Hillary—have completed our rehabilitation program and are looking for loving homes! 


These adorable pups have come a long way on their road to recovery:



Waffle, ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center graduateWaffle: Waffle, one of 100 dogs living in a studio apartment in New York, was rescued in April 2012. She spent time with multiple rescue groups and in a foster home, but she remained extremely fearful—especially around men. She was transferred to Second Chance Pet Adoption League, which brought her to us for rehabilitation. Waffle has come a long way, and will be graduating from the ASPCA Rehabilitation Center in a few short weeks!  



Juniper, ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center graduateJuniper: Juniper was rescued from a hoarding situation in Connecticut in May 2013 and taken in by Second Chance. She was extremely shy—she bolted away from people and was very fearful of handling and leashing. Second Chance brought her to the ASPCA Rehabilitation Center, where she recovered. Juniper is thriving in a foster home, and she can’t wait to join a loving family.  



Hillary, ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center graduateHillary: Known as a “Most Improved Pup,” Hillary was rescued from a hoarding situation in New York and taken in by Second Chance. She was the shyest and most traumatized dog of the group of 19 dogs in her former home. In a foster home, Hillary remained extremely fearful of all people and wouldn’t allow anyone to handle her. She was transferred to the ASPCA Rehabilitation Center in July 2013, and after extensive care and treatment, she graduated in January 2014!



Waffle, Juniper and Hillary are back with Second Chance waiting to find loving homes. All three dogs would do best with adult adopters who already have people-friendly, dog-friendly dogs. If you’re interested in meeting one of these new graduates, contact Second Chance by email: njwoof@cs.com or by phone: 973.208.1054.


Note: You must be in the New Jersey area to adopt. Thanks for helping us find homes for these adorable dogs!

A terrible sign of the times when humans torture animals.
Thank you for all the you do, have done and will do.

So sweet. Thank you for caring for God's lovely creatures. How would one volunteer with your organization? I love the mission, have two sweet adoptees from the Humane Society at home.

You guys amaze me. I get filled with emotion to see our animal friends treated so badly, but then when I see the work you are doing I'm encouraged and even more determined to support your work financially and any other way I can here locally. Thank you isn't enough praise for what you do. Please know there's a silent mass out here who love you and support your work.

You all do a great job for these helpless animals and I hope each one gets a forever home.

Thank you al at the ASPCA for all the humane work you do for animals there. I hope people will take these loving beings home soon. People need to know that animals can enhance the health of humans in many ways. Research by the American Heart Association, pet ownership is one of the factors associated with a reduction in the risk factor of heart disease. Please see the positive effects of cats and dogs on human health at the American Heart Association website! But of course you would have to take good care of the pet.

Congrats on the good work. I'm sure it will take no time for these three to find themselves in a new loving home!
