Recognizing the need to protect these dogs, NJ Aid for Animals stepped forward and launched the Dog House Project in 2007. The project provides outside dogs with a warm dog house, stuffed with straw and with a door flap to protect them...

Bean Needs A Home

WOOF! Hi there! My name is Bean! I am a young lady looking for my new best friend. Don’t I look beautiful in my photos? (Check out my Facebook Page: www.Facebook.com/BeanNJAFA) I have to look my best as I interview families. I’m a large (80 pounds) one-year-old doggie, muscular, so I’d be great a partner for someone who likes to walk. My lineage is one-half American Bull Dog and one-half American Staffordshire Terrier and one hundred percent from the line of kisses and fun dogs.  I’m a young gal so I am lively, fun-loving, and silly. I always have a good time,...
