Horse Rescue United, Inc. Silver Gem is a 10-year-old, 15-hand quarter horse gelding who spent the last eight years on a chain in someone's yard. He is gaining weight and a very kind boy who just needs some re-schooling. Gem is a lovely mover and will do well with an advanced rider and handler. For more information on Silver Gem or Horse Rescue United, visit or call 609-481-8561. Eleventh Hour Rescue Charlotte and Rosie are shepherd mixes who are just under one year old. They are sisters and both came from a neglect situation where they were left outside 24/7 in an undersized pen. Charlotte has short hair and Rosie has longer hair. Both girls are very sweet and are 30 to 40 pounds. They are very affectionate and enjoy the company of people. They do not have to be adopted together. Mack is a young pit bull terrier mix puppy who was abandoned and found as a stray. His ears appeared to have been badly cropped, perhaps by someone wanting to use him as a bait dog for fighting. He is now under the care of Eleventh Hour Rescue, currently at the newly opened adoption center at the Mount Olive PetSmart store. He is all about playing with his toys. Mack is a very active young boy on the go and will need lots of fun, love, and play time wherever he gets adopted. He’s so cute he's been nicknamed “Mac n Cheese.” To learn more about Charlotte, Rosie, Mack, or Eleventh Hour Rescue, visit, email, or call 973-664-0865. Paws 2 Your Heart Penny is a 7-month-old Plott hound/beagle mix. She is super sweet and loves attention. Penny is going to be a big girl, about 60+ pounds when full grown. Her siblings have all been adopted. She is great with kids, cats, and other dogs. Trixie is a 7-month old Catahoula/beagle mix. Trixie is going to be around 40 pounds when full grown. She's a sweet and curious girl, but willing to please. She is great with kids, cats, and other dogs.
