Adopt Me!

Animals found around Millburn sit at Valley Veterinary Hospital until claimed or adopted.

Adopt Me! Adopt Me! Adopt Me! Adopt Me!

Are you looking for a cute dog to bring home to your family or just need some company to curl up with on the couch after a long day of work?

Well, the Millburn Animal Control has been working with Veterinarian Norman J. Stack of Valley Veterinary Hospital, 2172 Millburn Ave., over the last eight years to make that happen.

Right now the hospital is taking care of two dogs looking for a home.

One is a brindle pitbull, Scrappy, who is about only eight-months-old, found on Millburn Avenue at Vauxhall Road.

"He greeted Captain Palardy then laid down at his feet," Joe Bielski of the Millburn Animal Control said. "He was great with everyone who came to meet him."

Stack has given the dog all the shots needed and will nueter the dog before he is given out for adoption but wants him to have a home first so he isn't in a cage with a cone on said Bielski. 

Onyx is an eight-year-old black lab with arthritis. Bielski described him as a dog, "who wants to go outside, do his business then just curl up on the couch with someone."

"He's a sweet dog," one of the employees at the hospital said. "He's just a happier older dog."

Both are house broken, listen and aren't aggressive at all Bielski said. 

Whenever Bielski picks up a dog, he bring them down to animal hospital and Stack takes care of the dog or cat. He gives them shots if they need them and in Onyx's situation Stack treats his arthritis. 

It is required for Animal Control to wait a week before offering the animals up for adoption.

Scrappy's week is up and it's been over a month since Onyx was found in the South Mountain Reservation abandoned. 

Bielski and Stack are asking Millburn and Short Hills residents to ask around if anyone wants to adopt these lovable dogs who both need a good home.

For more information contact Joe Bielski at 973-564-7085 or Valley Veterinary Hospital at 973-763-3445.
