Strut Your Mutt NJ is great! She has been with us - a new puppy and an older dog, and she has been very patient with the little one. She gives us daily updates on how they are doing. She has been very dedicated & even came back to check on them one day on her own accord when one seemed ill.  Strut Your Mutt NJ has given us good tips on things like vets, grooming services in the area and supplies like leashes & harnesses. I'm not sure how we'd do it without her! Strut Your Mutt NJ definitely gives us great peace of mind. Finally, she's very responsive & gets back to us ASAP with everything! So glad we found Strut Your Mutt NJ! ~ Kim Berly

Your pet is our family. 

About me:

I re​scued two pups, now 10 & 13 years old, from Father John's Animal House. Seeing rescue work made me want to volunteer, so I did, helping FJAH and later, J & Co Rescue in S. Jersey.

They were fostering a Pit Bull up here.  Foster networks sustain most pet rescues. 

It was a steep learning curve for me. 

We've had many foster pets stay here. We also took in two cats from blizzards, and placed them in homes.  Later, I adopted a 17.5 year old Papillon, dropped off by his father at Warwick Valley Humane. He was deaf, blind, and neurotic. I wanted to help. I always want to help. 

I network for rescues and drive to transport pets, from areas where many do not neuter or spay; mostly south to North.

SYM decided to focus on "bully breeds" when I learned more about their history, about them being used as bait, and seeing how hard it is to rent  a home with a Pit. 

I love Pits. 


In 2013, I started pet sitting when a friend told me she could not find a care taker for her Diabetic dog.  I am Diabetic, so it was second nature.
