  • Meet Max the little ham!
  • We think he is a Maltese/Shih Tzu mix that is approximately 2 years old.
  • Max takes time to warm up to people and will require someone to give him the time he needs. Max will bark with ALL new people, so he needs supervised initial introductions.
  • But, when Max is ready, he will be your best friend and love you forever ❤️!
  • He is currently being fostered with another small dog and cats and does well with them.
  • NO young children, NO men.


  •  Maya is a 12 wk old mixed female puppy, Shepard/ husky.
  • She is doing awesome on a leash and with potty training.
  • She will need a home that can be patient with her to adjust, she still is very shy.
  • Maya loves other dogs, and would do BEST with older children.
  • Maya’s perfect home would be a laid back home with some furry siblings to teach her the ropes.
  • Her potty training is going well and she loves being outside playing.


  • Meet Bruno!
  • He’s an 8 year old Shih Tzu. He’s neutered and vaccinated
  • Bruno does well with other dogs, and he is quite the character.

  • This little fella absolutely LOVES playing in the baby pool. He is so cute watching him jump in and out of the water.
  • Rocket also loves people and playing with his siblings.
  • He is a lab/hound mixed breed male puppy.


  • Meet Drax…one of the Guardians of the Galaxy litter.
  • He is one handsome boy, a lab/hound mixed breed male puppy.

  1. Hello my name is Felicita and I am interested in Max and or Dezzy. I am from Parsippany NJ and willing to come out to meet them. I have a 3 year shih tzu and I would like to give him a sibling. I would like to know what are your adoption prices?

    1. Hey Felicita,

      Our dog adoption fee varies per dog and we can explain that a little more on a meet and greet. Please fill out an application here on our website, and once it is approved a meet and greet can be set up.

      Max cannot go to a home with children, grandchildren that visit or men. He gets a little cranky!! 🙂

      Please let me know what other questions you have!

  2. Hi, I am interested in Thanos but curious if there is information on how well he would do with a cat? I adopted a cat from SOAR two years ago and would like to ensure they would be a good match. Thank you in advance!

    1. Hi Fran,

      I just looked through the Facebook posts and it looks like Thanos has not been around cats yet. I would suggest filling out an application and then a meet and greet can be scheduled if your application is approved. The foster mom will be your best resource to figure out the relationship with your cat and dog. Thank you for coming back to SOAR!

    1. Hi Liz,

      No we do not provide transport, that would be the adopters responsibility.

  3. Interested in adopting a dog….mixed breed and not a small one. How do I go about it? We are senior citizens just two of us. Our shepherd just passed. Have fenced yard and live in country.

    1. Hey Susan!
      You’re on luck we’ve got lots of mixed breeds! Check out our dogs on this website and fill out an application for the dog you want. If you have FB go to SOAR Adoptables and check us out there too.
      I am not sure what adults we have at the moment, but I can find out if that is your preference.
