Sometimes adopting an adult dog is the best thing you can do.

Meet our Point Pet of the Week from the Monmouth County SPCA. She is such a Pretty Pittie!

Melon is ready for her forever home. She came to the MCSPCA with her puppies, who have all been adopted.

Melon is 2-years old, 55 pounds and was in a volunteer foster home for a while. Now she is back at the shelter and is described by her foster family as a sweet and snuggly girl who does an adorable happy dance when it’s time to eat.

Melon is also a smarty pants! She has learned the commands sit, stay, paw, beg and high-five!

Melon would do best in a home without small children and prefers to be the only pet.

And if you're more of a cat person, how about this long-haired beauty! Her name is even the cutest thing ever: Appleflower Dazzlemist!

She was found in a park, abandoned in her carrier.

She has a very sweet side and enjoys being pet and nuzzling against you. The shelter staff says this sweet cat would do best in an adults-only home with cat parents who really know their felines.

Appleflower Dazzlemist is 2-years old and needs to be an 'only' cat..
