Adoptable Dogs


Large dogs take up more floor space ... and more space in your heart.


Bella is an absolutely adorable 1-year-old Rottweiler born on June 7, 2014, and weighing in at about 70lbs. She knows basic commands like sit, stay, come and paw. She gets along great with kids and cats, is s extremely loving– and wants nothing more than to please you!  Bella is dog selective and is great with submissive dogs, however she is not so great with overly confident dogs. She also loves the car! Bella is truly is an outstanding dog except for not getting along with every dog. Her owner is heartbroken about parting with her and can’t say enough good things about her. Please email for more details about Bella.image2




BearMeet our new resident, Bear! He’s a one-year-old Mastiff who was recently surrendered to the Newark Shelter and has now made his way to our Tinton Falls shelter. Bear is incredibly cute and very playful. He is very large and listens well, however could probably use some additional training. He loves to get his belly rubbed and plays fetch too. His former owners didn’t have the time to devote to this clumsly, awkward, very affectionate dingaling so we are hoping to find him the right home so he doesn’t have to go through this again!  Due to his size and energy level, we suggest Bear for kids teenage age or older. Swing on by the shelter and meet Bear!

dice5This handsome young man is Dice. He’s a little over a year old. Dice was hit by a car recently and suffered neurologic trauma to his spine. There were no apparent fractures, but as a result of the trauma, Dice no longer has full control of his rear legs, bladder or bowel. (Although he does move himself away from any excrement that he passes) Initially, Dice was fully paralyzed in the rear, but every day he gets stronger and is now able to stand, hold himself up and even walk a bit, even if it’s quite uncoordinated. He gets better every day and is able to walk a bit more every day all by himself. Dice needs that special home that is willing and able to provide the special care that he requires. Dice is a great boy with a zest for life.

UPDATE: 6/13/15 – Dice gets stronger and stronger every day. These days, he walks mostly on his own. A little bit awkward yet, but still all by himself. He’s gained much more control of his bladder and bowel too. As long as we provide routine, scheduled potty breaks for him, he holds it and controls it! Check out his NEW updated video from this week!

This sweet girl was found wandering around in Puerto Rico. Poor  Nena was “discovered” by a kind woman with a big heart visiting from New York. There was just something about Nena (which means girl in Spanish). Her back leg is hurt (possibly from being hit by a car), and she is currently staying in a private residence… but only for a little while. If you have room in your heart and home, arrangements can be made to have Nena put on a flight to you. Please email for more details about Nena. nena1




Gustavo (Courtesy Post)


Hi, My name is Gustavo. I’m a 3 year old Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff). I don’t know why, but my owner abandoned me, and thankfully, SICAW is helping to find me a new home. I’m a very sweet, gentle dog who loves pupperoni and giving kisses. I walk well on a leash and would love to take long walks with you. 1507679_830521833631161_1690661245_n

I have been at the kennel for a year. I’m a very sweet, gentle dog who loves pupperoni and giving kisses. I walk well on a leash and would love to take long walks with you. I follow commands such as– sit, give me your paw…. and of course give me kisses. By the way–I get along with other big dogs. I haven’t been with cats so don’t know how I will behave with them.

The volunteers are wonderful and take me out as much as they can, but what I really need is a home of my own with a cozy bed and a place to run and someone to give me all their attention. Could that be you? If big, lovable pooches are your thing, come down to the kennel to meet me. See what a great boy I am – just a big mush waiting for my own special person to shower with kisses and to love me in return.

Gustavo is 3 years old, is up to date with vaccinations, micro-chipped and on heartworm preventive. Gustavo as well as others can be seen at Country Estate Kennels at 4838 Arthur Kill Road on Sunday mornings from 10am to 12pm. Please check our home page for directions. FOR MORE INFORMATION: PLEASE CALL Barbara at 718-356-2334

Roxy is a one-year-old Pit Bull Terrier whose owner was incarcerated.  She was left alone in the apartment, and her foster mom rescued her.

Roxy is very friendly toward people. She seems to be a little anxious around other dogs.

Roxy has a lot of energy, and needs an active home. She knows some commands and will listen when called.

Roxy’s foster mom has become very fond of her, and would like to meet with the adopters to help ease the transition.
