Paws 2 Your Heart Sandy is a 7 year-old female lab mix. Don't let her age fool you! She acts just like a puppy, is super sweet, and loves other dogs and children. Sandy would make a great addition to any family. Thunder is an 11 month-old pit/lab mix who has been with Paws since he was 4 weeks old. He recently graduated from basic obedience class with Best Foot Forward Dog Training. He knows a lot of basic commands and is fabulous on the leash. Thunder loves other dogs and children. For more information on Sandy, Thunder, and other dogs for adoption at Paws 2 Your Heart, visit or call 973-271-6897. Eleventh Hour Rescue Huck is a 6-month-old black lab mix who would be an adorable addition to any home. Full of puppy love and curiosity, Huck will explore everywhere he goes, and when needed, he will obey the “no” command. He is very playful and enjoys a good game of fetch whenever he can; Turk will chase his toy and then dutifully return it to you and drop it for another toss. As with all youngsters, Huck is full of enthusiasm and has a lot of energy. He will need a family with time and lots of love to give. Charlie Bones is a 5-year-old shepherd mix who was abandoned by his owners and found starving as a stray. Bones all over his entire body were protruding out extensively. Charlie also had a very advanced stage of heartworm, which was causing his body to shut down. Left untreated, he would have suffered congestive heart failure, followed by a subsequent painful death. Fortunately for Charlie, Eleventh Hour Rescue rushed him to the Animal Emergency and Referral Associates in Fairfield where he received emergency surgery to stabilize him. A few days later, the same surgeons followed up with another surgical procedure to manually remove as many heartworms as possible. While they removed about six worms, they couldn’t get them all. Thanks to Charlie’s will to survive and with the help of his foster home and strong medications, Charlie is improving steadily every day. He’s putting on weight again and getting stronger. He loves to snuggle and he can finally be a dog again. Charlie currently needs sponsors to help support his ongoing care.

Noah’s Ark Animal Welfare Association Squeeky is a 2-year-old calico domestic shorthair female cat who came to Noah's Ark when her owner got sick and could no longer take care of her. She is not used to life in a shelter and is a bit shy as a result. Rainie is a 2 year-old white and gray domestic shorthair female cat. Noah's Ark staff found her wandering around the shelter and humanely trapped her.
