Extra Care for Long-term Residents

At ROAR most of our residents come through our doors and, a after a short period of loving care here at the shelter, leave for their new homes. But, sometimes, even a sweet, beautiful animal gets passed by due to no fault of his/her own. The timing just isn’t right and the perfect match takes a little longer to be made. Because of their lengthier stay with us, these animals receive a little extra care. Some are given foster homes where they are exposed to real life family noises and smells as well as others animals and a real home life. Others receive extensive training in behavior classes and by ROAR’s trainers. The animals flourish in these situations instead of becoming more and more despondent while waiting for a home. Bailey, Simba & Ham are some of our favorite examples.



Snickers was a kitten from a shelter in Cape May. Unfortunately, she ended up with not a great owner and was recently brought back to ROAR with some intervention.

She is a wonderful, loving, tortoiseshell tabby girl that instantly starts purring when you talk to her. She is about a year and a half old, and will make a great addition to any family!

Snickers is spayed, micro-chipped and up-to-date on vaccinations.

***Please remember to keep your cats indoors, especially during this time of year, as predators are active preparing for the harsh weather ahead.***







This goofy boy can’t wait to meet you! Ham is sweet, four-year-old Pit Bull Terrier Mix who loves to play fetch and run around the yard. He will also be happy just snuggling up and spending some quality time with his human family.

Come down and see for yourself how lovable this boy is!

Ham would do best in a home with experienced dog owners that have a fenced yard and no young children.

He is up-to-date on his vaccinations and is neutered. Ham is also micro-chipped.



At ROAR, everyone receives what they need to live happy, healthy lives
until the home they are waiting for is found.
