Berta and Bessie—who were only a year old at the time of their rescue—had been found living in squalor with little-to-no protection from the elements. They wore heavy chains and had no food or fresh water, and they had never been socialized with other people or dogs. In order to help them heal (both physically and emotionally), we sent them to the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in Madison, New Jersey. Over the course of the next year, they learned to trust people, take walks, play with toys, and receive belly rubs. Now these sweet girls just need one last thing: adopters!
Berta: Berta is a lover! She enjoys being touched, pet and cuddled, and will crawl right into your lap if you let her—even if you’ve just met! She loves to play with other dogs, and would do great in a home with a confident dog of similar energy and play style. Berta is a bit nervous walking in busy areas, and is especially nervous around bicycles, so adopters should be willing to work with her to make her comfortable with these things. As a bonus, if you look closely, the dark tan spot over her eye is in the shape of a heart!
Bessie: Bessie is a sweet clown. Though she is a bit shy around new people, she enjoys giving kisses and being pet by friends who have earned her trust. She really comes alive in the presence of another dog, and would do best in a home with at least one other pup. Bessie has played with dogs of all sizes and can adjust her play style to theirs. In addition, she’s earned a reputation as a “tap dancer,” because she gets so excited before walks and play dates that she literally can’t keep her feet on the floor! She is a bit nervous around loud noises, so she will need a patient family that will continue to help her discover the world.
If you are interested in adopting Berta or Bessie, please contact the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center directly via email at [email protected] or call 973-377-5609.

For adoptable cats Mario and Ricky, it’s all about living a balanced life. They aren’t the type of guys to rush into things. These independent cats, who are best buddies and would like to be adopted together, are shy and prefer to take things slow.

They’d make the perfect match for a family looking to bring home two furry friends that don’t require a lot of attention.

Looking for a sweet and sensitive kitty companion? Look no further than Glenda (pictured right) or Kathy (pictured below). These pretty girls both have special needs, and are each looking for patient and caring forever families to love and take care of them.*
Glenda and Kathy are both diabetic and will require daily insulin shots from their adopters—but with proper care and special diets, their conditions can be well-managed. While it would be great if Glenda and Kathy’s adoptive families be familiar with feline diabetes, our medical team can show you the ropes and help you address their unique health needs.
We know adopting pets with special needs can be both a financial and time commitment, but these sweet girls will reward you with plenty of love in return! Glenda and Kathy would do best with experienced adopters, and Kathy would prefer to be the only cat in the household. Adopt Glenda or Kathy today!
