Three senior dogs need homes - Burlington County Animal Shelter Mt Holly NJ

Lady Bird has arrived......this quiet lady is about 12 years old, weighs 38 pounds and is a Shepherd mix. She came in as a stray and is hoping to go back home and I truly hope no one "just let her out" because they thought she was too old! Lady Bird is a bit shy and doesn't quite know why she is here, so a little scared too. She seems loving and enjoys a slow walk. Please come visit and reclaim this girl or give this lovely mature lady a new loving home.
This is Elsa. It is so sad to see the lost and confused expression of the older dogs who wind up in the chaos of a noisy shelter. Poor Elsa is a senior, very overweight (98 lbs) boxer mix that was found as a stray. We hope her people find her soon. She is friendly and calm, and enjoyed getting outside today. Elsa will need someone willing to give her quiet walks to take off some of that weight, which will make her more comfortable and improve her quality of life. If you have a place in your heart and home for an older gal to spend her golden years, please come and take a look at Elsa. She still has love to give and certainly does not deserve to be in a shelter.
This handsome guy is Duce, a 9 yr old rottweiler. He weighs 92.6 lbs. This poor guy was surrendered by his family. Duce is house trained and leash trained. He is very smart and knows sit, down and paw. He is good with adults and children. Duce is used to being around other dogs. He loves going outside and playing fetch. He is a very friendly dog who just needs a loving home. Please contact John Richardson if you would like to rescue or adopt any of these 3 seniors! you can email him at
