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. TWIGGY and GANNON are two of our favorite examples.



Our newest companion, Twiggy, is a friendly feline with unique markings. She took a trip to Connecticut from the Cape May Shelter after many months of trying to find a home. Hopefully Twiggy can find her forever family that will give her the attention she deserves. Twiggy is up to date on vaccinations, is Felv/Fiv negative and is spayed.





Well versed in the art of playtime, Gannon, a sweet terrier mutt from South Carolina has been aching to find a yard to frolic in. He would love to meet a family that wants to keep him busy this summer. At 7 years old, Gannon is spry and ready for home life. Gannon is currently in foster with one of our wonderful volunteers. To arrange a meeting with Gannon, please call ROAR at 203-438-0158. Gannon is up to date on vaccinations, is micro-chipped, and is neutered.

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