The Belle Mead Animal Hospital encourages both existing and prospective pet owners to consider adopting a rescue pet whenever possible.
Rescue groups are brimming with happy, healthy animals just waiting for someone to take them home. The pets available for adoption have all had their wellness exams and vaccinations. They are typically spayed or neutered, and their temperaments have been well established so a prospective adopter can be matched with the right pet to suit their particular household.
The Belle Mead Animal Hospital is proud to support local rescue groups and assist by offering adoption days at the hospital and showcasing adoptable pets in our waiting room on a regular basis. Adopting and caring for a companion animal can provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment for an individual, andthe new pet can become a source of unconditional love for those who find their match.

Maxine would like to find her Forever Home:
Hi, my name is Maxine! I’m a sweet middle-aged female kitty, and I’m desperately in need of my forever home. I’m considered “special needs” kitty because I take daily thyroid medication – but I take my meds fairly easily! I am also on utd shots and I’m spayed. I was found outdoors hungry and cold, and thanks to CAPIC cats rescue, I’m now indoors safe and warm! I’m not very fond of other cats but I don’t mind friendly dogs at all. Please come visit me at Amwell Pet Supply in Hillsborough!

Wiley is waiting for his new Forever Home:
Wiley is a 2-3 year old male mastiff-terrier mix that was rescued from a South Korean dog meat farm by Humane Society International in April 2016 along with 170 other dogs. When Wiley first arrived at Animal Alliance, he was scared of the world. Wiley has since been rehabilitated and is now ready for adoption. This once closed-off dog is full of energy, and loves to jump up and down and show off all his excitement. (Potential adopters with no small children in the home under 9 yrs old please.) Learn more about Wiley and see additional photos here.
Bojangles is waiting for his new Forever Home:
Meet Bojangles! This large, 60 pound, male hound mix came all the way from South Carolina to find his forever home! Bojangles is an extremely handsome outdoorsy fellow with beautiful brown speckles and brown ears and face! We think he is about 3 years old. He LOVES to be outside! He would be a great companion for a real outdoor family who loves to play hard, then collapse with an affectionate dog who is cuddly and a little bit goofy. Bojangles loves affection, bones, and toys, and he is good with people and other dogs. He is strong on the leash, given his size and weight, so he needs someone who is able to keep him under good control. Learn more about Bojangles and view additional photos on Petfinder here.

Alicia is ready for her new Forever Home:
Alicia is a young, elegant, fast-moving, beautiful female tabby rescued in the winter from College Avenue Campus. Approximately 1 year old, she has been neutered, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, and is negative for FIV/Feleuk. Alicia does not sit still for long, unless she is standing on your lap and pushing her face into your chin while purring. She burns energy leaping from place to place and galloping quickly and quietly as she makes her rounds! She loves dry food, loves to have her head, chin and back scratched and purrs if you oblige!
Alicia is nervous with other cats and swats/advances if they get too close to her. She would be ideal as single cat or with another cat who would respect her space. She would do well with responsible older children who would oblige her need for human contact and also recognize when she just wants to sleep instead! If you are interested in adopting or fostering Alicia, please contact us for more details at: firstname.lastname@example.org
