Adoption Spotlight: Canine Graduates from ASPCA Rehab Center Seeking Homes
The ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center is currently preparing for its big move to North Carolina, but four of its New Jersey graduates are still seeking homes! These dogs have made incredible progress as in their recovery from lives of abuse and neglect, and now all they want is a loving family to call their own. Read on to meet our final four New Jersey grads, and please consider adopting today.
Scarlett is a mellow, 5-7 year-old Lab mix who was rescued from a hoarding situation in Tennessee. During her time at the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center, she learned skills like “touch,” “let’s go,” and how to walk on a leash. Though she is shy around new people, she’ll be your lifelong friend once she gets to know you. Loud noises and unfamiliar objects occasionally frighten Scarlett and cause her to hide, but she likes to learn and loves nothing more than a soft bed or some tasty treats to chew. She is looking for an experienced adopter without young children who can continue to help her overcome her fears. Although Scarlett can co-exist with other dogs, she’s not playful with them.
Scarlett is available for adoption at St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in Madison, New Jersey.
Rose was rescued after roaming the streets in a neighborhood in Georgia for a few years. She spent time in a local shelter recovering from some ailments, but she was too fearful to be put up for adoption. In February 2017, Rose was transferred to the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center, where she learned that unfamiliar people, objects and situations aren’t as scary as she thought. Although Rose can be shy at first, once she gets to know she’ll be a lifelong friend. Rose is looking for an experienced adopter without young children who can continue to help her along. She would like to live with a dog of a similar temperament.

Jasmine was found as a stray living under someone’s porch. When she was rescued, the one-year-old Hound mix was very fearful and not yet ready for adoption. After arriving at the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center in July 2016, she made great progress and proved to be very playful and silly around the people she knows. She loves running around in securely fenced areas and is a big fan of other dogs. She enjoys cuddling with her favorite, familiar people, but although she is eager to learn, she doesn’t yet have many obedience skills. Jasmine is looking for an experienced adopter who will be willing to patiently build a bond and provide her with reward-based training. She would do best in a quiet home where she can be the only dog. There is no greater reward than to gain Jasmine’s trust and see her sweet spirit shine through!
Jasmine is available for Adoption at Sammy’s Hope in Sayreville, New Jersey.
Sweet Smore is a senior dog who was rescued by the ASPCA from a hoarding case in Tennessee. At the ASPCA Behavioral Rehabilitation Center, she was gradually socialized to people, objects, sounds, petting and walking on a leash, and now this calm gal enjoys quiet walks, sniffing around grassy yards and napping on soft beds. Estimated to be between the ages of nine and 11, Smore appreciates the company of calm dogs, and sometimes plays gently and briefly. She has been comfortable relaxing in a crate for hours at a time, and did not have any accidents while on a regular schedule in her foster home. Smore just likes to relax and smell the roses, and she is looking for a patient adopter who can continue to help her overcome fears at her own pace.
