The Rescue Round-Up

| 15 Feb 2012 | 11:20

BARKS (Byram Animal Rescue Kindness Squad) Abigail is a beautiful brown tabby cat who is very affectionate. She warms up very quickly and loves to be pet. A total lovebug. Angus is a black and white kitty who is very low key. He likes to snuggle and have people pet him. Angus gets along well with other cats, but prefers a household without dogs or young children. He would still make a great addition to many families. For more information on Abigail, Angus, or BARKS, visit or call 973-300-3185. One Step Closer Animal Rescue (OSCAR) Macey is a 1-2 year-old Beagle mix who’s a very sweet and independent girl. She is spayed and is up-to-date on shots. Macey likes to play and loves attention. She is a medium-sized dog who gets along with other dogs. This girl is always ready for nap and cuddle time. She loves being part of the family and fits right in. Josie is between 8 and 10 years old. She is lab mix who is the sweetest dog in the world. She is not an old dog by any means. Josie is very quiet (OSCAR has never heard her bark), loves all other dogs, and is completely housebroken and spayed, weighing about 50 pounds. She walks beautifully on a leash, or quietly off the leash, barely leaving your side. Josie is a wonderful, loyal, and quiet companion, with many years of love left to give. For more information on Macey, Josie, and other dogs for adoption at OSCAR, visit or call 973-652-3969. Eleventh Hour Rescue Annabelle is a small pointer mix. By the time this article runs, she should have a new litter of puppies. She is approximately 40 pounds and was saved from a high kill shelter. Annabelle is extremely friendly, kind, and will most likely make the best mom ever for her pups. She loves the company of people and once her puppies are born and weaned, she will be ready for adoption. Simon is a 6-year-old beagle mix who sadly suffered a gunshot wound to his face. Nothing gets this special guy down. He has healed from that tragedy and also beat heartworm, so he is ready to find his forever home. Like many Beagles, Simon has a very playful side. He’s a silly guy at times and when he smiles with excitement, his teeth show in a big grin-like gesture. But just as often, he’s laid back, unless there’s an opportunity to go for a car ride, then he's up and ready.
