Senior dogs for adoption at Burlington Co. Animal Shelter - Mt Holly NJ

609-265-5073 for Burlington County Animal Shelter in Mt. Holly NJ or email:

D94873 Precious - My name is Precious. I am a 10 year old Jack Russell Terrier mix and weigh 23 lbs. My owners brought me here and I am so confused. I am a really friendly girl and love people. I am housebroken, crate trained and good on a leash. And just look at my can you not love it!! Please come and visit me. I'd love to go home with you and start my new life!

D48903 - Emma - Emma came to us as a surrender with her best pal, Jake. She is a beautiful 25 lb American Eskimo who is a bit intimidated with all the commotion of the shelter. At 12 yrs old, this pretty girl deserves a nice home where she can just be appreciated and loved for all she has to offer! She is a bit frightened at her new surroundings, but you can tell she is a very well behaved girl and has so much to offer to a loving family. She walks great on a leash and is also crate trained and house trained. Wouldn't it be wonderful if both Emma and Jake could find a forever home together? Of course she is available to be adopted by herself too! Please consider coming out to meet this sweet pair who don't deserve to spend their senior years in a shelter!

D48902 - Jake - Jake, a 12 yr old, 25 lb beautiful American Eskimo was surrendered along with Emma (also an American Eskimo). Jake is a sweet, friendly boy who walks great on a leash and loves to be pet! This sweet boy is also crate trained and housetrained. At 12 years old, Jake is a mature dog and has so much to offer, he is done with all that silly puppy stuff! Jake would love to just be your buddy and hang out and go for walks. It would be wonderful if Jake and Emma could be adopted together, but he is also available by himself. Wont you consider making Jake or possibly both Jake and Emma a part of your home?

D48899 - Harley - Harley is an 8 year old Lab/Shep mix. He was surrendered through no fault of his own. Harley is a little anxious in his kennel, wondering why he is there. Once outside he just wants to be petted. He walks great on the leash and his former owner says he is crate trained. They also told us he is good with children. Please come down and meet Harley.....he could be your new best friend!!

D48918 - Princess was surrendered due to a family hardship. This sweet girl is 15 years old and weighs 53 lbs. She is so friendly, and is great with other dogs. She is a little cautious because she is really confused as to why she is at the shelter. Once you get her out, she is the sweetest thing. She deserves a loving family to live out her final years. Are you that family?? Please come and visit Princess.

D48755 -Baby enjoys short walks and being cooled off from the heat with a little water fun. Just don't put baby in a corner! This 11 year old seems to be in pretty good shape and even was able to jump onto the picnic table for a treat! Her previous caretakers said she is house trained and leashed trained. They also mentioned she is good with men only but our female volunteers had no issues walking this 29 pounder or spraying her down with water to cool her off. She is ready to go. If only human babies were this easy!

D48156 - Thaddeus - URGENT!! Thaddeus is an inquisitive, active 8 year old. He loves to check things out. He weighs 19 lbs and is a lot of fun. He is a friendly boy and you would never know he is a little on the "mature" side. If you would like a companion to take walk with, explore outside and just be friends with, Thaddeus is the one. Please come meet him.

D48927 - Meet Jazz, a 7 yr old Brindle colored Rottweiler mix. At 74 pounds, this big guy is just a big sweetheart! He previous owners say he loves to roll in blankets and make pillows with soft t-shirts! What a silly boy! He also sits for treats and seems to know some basic commands. Because of his size, Jazz would be best suited in a home with no children, as he is very strong and gets excited! Wont you consider giving Jazz the wonderful home hes been dreaming of?

D47801 URGENT!!!  This very handsome Black Lab is Smokey. He is 10 yrs old and was surrendered by his family through no fault of his own. He weighs 74 lbs and is house trained. This friendly guy is sweet and calm. Smokey is handsome with his black coat and greying face- but don't let the grey put you off. He will be a great addition to any family.

 Gus - 47735 URGENT!!  Looking for a friendly, mature dog that is not silly and gets along with kids & dogs? Well, your search has ended! Heres Gus, sadly surrendered by his family who report that he is good with adults, kids, dogs and is house trained. Our volunteers say Gus loves to roll around in the grass and is easy to walk. Gus is one of our senior dogs, but you wouldn't know it based on the pep in his step. The benefit in adopting a mature dog is that they are done with all the annoying puppy stuff and do not require a lot of playtime. Because Gus is older and overweight, the hard shelter floor is not good for his joints. He really needs a loving home for his golden years. If you would like to save a senior and get a great companion to boot, please see Gus. Gus is a memeber of our Pooch with Perks Program. When you adopt, you will receive a Doggie Goodie Bag donated by the Friends of Burlington County Animal Shelter!
