The Rescue Round-Up

    Horse Rescue United, Inc. These two horses were featured in our March column and have yet to find homes: Jessica is a 17 year-old 14.2-hand dark bay Standardbred mare who was saved from New Holland auction. This sweet girl was also clearly abused, but has made amazing progress learning to trust again and truly wants to please. Due to her past, Jessica requires a mature, experienced handler. Trained to ride and drive, she’s suited for an intermediate driver or smaller intermediate to advanced rider for trails/pleasure. Cooper is an 11 year-old 15.1 hand dark bay Standardbred gelding who was also saved from New Holland. A former Amish horse, Cooper is very quiet and a calm, well-mannered boy. He is sound for walking only under saddle or harness, suited for advanced beginners in both disciplines. Cooper is very sweet and gets along great with other horses. Jessica and Cooper are available to approved homes within the United States on 30 day trials for just $250 each. They are up-to-date and have been evaluated in harness and under saddle. For more information on Jessica, Cooper, and other HRU horses, visit, email, or call 609-481-8561. Paws 2 Your Heart Thunder is a six month old Pit/Lab mix. He is super sweet and loves to give hugs and kisses. He is 90 percent house trained and loves other dogs and kids. He is crate trained and working with our trainer on his basic obedience. Thunder would make the perfect lap/cuddle buddy. Georgia is a two year-old Pug/Jack Russell mix. She is very sweet and would love a house with a fenced-in yard where she can run around. She is house trained, crate trained, and is great with other dogs and kids. Georgia loves to play and will make a great addition to any family. For more information on Thunder, Georgia, or Paws 2 Your Heart, visit or call 973-271-6897. Eleventh Hour Rescue Sinclair is a unique combination of Border Collie and Pit Bull. Less than two years old, his good looks draw attention wherever he goes. Sinclair is very friendly, playful, outgoing, and energetic. He loves to play with a tennis ball and has a very cute pouncing maneuver. When he’s done romping around, he just wants to cuddle up next to you. This medium sized dog would love a home of his own. Peter is a 4- to 5-year-old American Bull Dog/Terrier mix who spent the first few years of his life living in a shelter, waiting for a family to choose him. Two years ago, a wonderful family took him home. Sadly, due to personal circumstances, the family can no longer keep him. Peter is housebroken and has graduated two levels of basic obedience classes. He lived with two children and slept with them every night. He is loving, obedient, and eager to please. He loves to cuddle, but also loves to play with toys or go for walks. Peter needs to be the only pet in the home, but he will be worth it. To learn more about Sinclair, Peter, or Eleventh Hour Rescue, visit, email, or call 973-664-0865. Noah’s Ark Animal Welfare Association Sarah is a 1-year-old medium-sized Labrador Retriever/Chinese Shar-Pei mix who was rescued from a hoarding situation by another shelter then transferred to Noah’s Ark. She came to Noah’s Ark months ago with mange, a skin condition that she’s since been treated for. Sarah is a shy dog, but has been coming out of her shell once she gets to know someone. She is also becoming a lap dog and gets along with other dogs. Sarah would love a quiet home. For more information on Sarah or Noah’s Ark, visit or call 973-347-0378.
