Adopting From SAVE

Be a Friend . . . Adopt a SAVE Pet

THE SHELTER IS OPEN BY APPOINTMENT ONLY FOR APPROVED ADOPTERS to allow the dedicated time for our staff to facilitate the optimal pet-matchmaking experience.

Happy Juniper

As a result of the pandemic forcing us to operate the shelter by appointment only, we learned that it works! We have received positive feedback from our adopters. We can ensure an even better outcome for both the pet and the adopter by closing the shelter to walk-in visitors and operating by appointment only.



Complete our online adoption application. An application must be completed and approved prior to visiting with our animals.



A SAVE staff member will contact you to make an appointment. ALL members living in the household must meet the pet as part of the adoption process. If you are interested in adopting a dog and you have other dogs in the household, a meet and greet will be required.



To follow up on your adoption application status, please call the shelter at (609) 309-5214 or email us at [email protected]

Pets are family and a lifetime commitment.

SAVE adoption policies are based on industry best practices. Our staff are happy to assist you in finding the perfect match for you, your family, and your lifestyle. When you take your furry friend home, be prepared for a period of adjustment. It can take an adopted pet 3 days, 3 weeks, or even 3 months (or more) to adjust to their new home environment.

🐾 Meet Roxie Hart 🐾

Age/Weight: Approximately 2.5 years old, 45 lbs

Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix

I’m Roxie Heart, and life is just one big, splashy adventure to me! Dive into my world, and you’ll find a dog who’s as smart as a whip, as silly as a clown, and as playful as a pup can be.

Let’s start with my all-time favorite pastime – the pool! Oh, how I love the cool, refreshing water on a hot day. I’m a water dog through and through, and if you throw a tennis ball or a floating toy in there, you’ll see me paddle and splash with pure joy. I’m like a furry synchronized swimmer, and I’ll even teach you some moves if you join me!

Now, when it comes to intelligence, I’m no slouch. They say I’m “smart,” and I’m inclined to agree. I’ve mastered some impressive tricks like sit, touch, and down. But don’t worry, I won’t show off too much – I’m a humble hound who’s always eager to learn new tricks and make you proud.

Speaking of toys, there’s nothing like a good squeaky toy to tickle my funny bone. I’ll roll around, toss it in the air, and give it a good squeak just to see your reaction. It’s my way of saying, “Let’s have some fun, human!”

Now, about my silliness, I take playtime very seriously! I’m a goofball at heart, and I’ll do just about anything to make you smile. Whether it’s chasing my tail in circles or giving you the classic puppy-dog eyes, I’ve got a knack for spreading laughter.

So, if you’re looking for a pool-loving, smart, squeaky-toy enthusiast who knows some cool tricks and is the silliest sidekick you’ll ever have, then look no further than Roxie Heart! Together, we’ll make a splash and have a bark-tastic time in this wonderful adventure called life.
