Eleventh Hour Rescue Bonito and his siblings, Pee Wee, Herman, and Barbie are about four months old. They are all neutered/spayed and up-to-date on shots. Their foster mom reports that they are the most affectionate kittens she has ever fostered. They adore human companionship and purr whenever someone comes close to them. The kittens love to be petted and held too. They are very playful and get along great with other cats. Derby is a young, energetic female Shepherd mix. She has a beautiful coat of soft fur, wonderful markings, and a beautiful personality to match. Derby is full of love and affection and wants nothing more than to give out kisses and snuggle up by your side. She will quickly roll over on her back to get some good belly rubs at any time. She is a total sweetheart and ready to be adopted. To learn more about Bonito and siblings, Derby, or other pets for adoption at Eleventh Hour Rescue, visit, email, or call 973-664-0865. Paws 2 Your Heart Thunder is a 10-month-old lab/pit mix. He is super sweet and loves to give kisses. Thunder recently finished a six-week basic obedience class; he knows all of his basic commands, and then some. Thunder’s perfect home would be a home with a fenced in yard, with another doggie friend and/or kids. Grant is a 5-month-old black lab/shepherd mix. Grant is very calm and mellow for his age. He recently finished a six-week puppy obedience class and knows all of his basic commands. Grant is a great pup who is wonderful with other dogs, cats, and kids. For more information on Thunder, Grant, and other dogs for adoption at Paws 2 Your Heart, visit or call 973-271-6897. Horse Rescue United, Inc. Isis is a 17-year-old. 15-hand Standardbred mare who had been purchased at auction, then saved from a "rescue” that was starving her and over a dozen other horses. Isis was most likely an Amish horse and is currently living in Remsen, NY in a foster home. She is very gentle and sweet. Due to her past neglect, Isis is looking for a home where she can be loved and pampered as a companion horse/pasture pet. Cooper is an 11-year-old. 15.1 hand Standardbred gelding who was saved from slaughter via New Holland auction in January. A former Amish horse, Cooper is very quiet and a calm, well-mannered boy. Due to his hard-working past, HRU hopes to find him a home where he can enjoy leisurely walks with some trotting under saddle or harness. Suited for advanced beginners in both disciplines, Cooper is very sweet and loves other horses. Jessica is a 17-year-old, 14.2 hand Standardbred mare was also saved from slaughter this past January. She has made amazing progress and truly wants to please. Jessica would do best with an understanding, experienced handler. She makes a wonderful driving pony and is also a great pasture pet/companion for other horses. Suited for a smaller advanced rider or intermediate+ driver, Jess rides walk-trot-canter. Isis, Cooper, and Jessica are available for just $100 to approved US homes with a contract. Each comes on a minimum 30-day trial period to ensure the right match.
