Surrender Process

Sheltie Face


Shetland Sheepdog Placement Svcs of NJ understands that having to make the decision to give up your dog is very personal and often difficult. SSPSNJ has placed adoptable shelties of all ages....young and old (senior citizens) alike...even placing special needs dogs that require extra care -- but in return offer lots of love.

SSPSNJ is not a shelter, but a non-profit organization dedicated to finding loving permanant homes for shelties. If you have any questions as to whether your dog can be placed, please email us at We can discuss your dog's specific issues and help you with your decision.

Some behaviors can be modified once they are understood through some simple training techniques that you may not be aware of. We would be glad to talk with you regarding any of your issues, and perhaps help you work through some problems so that you may not have to place your dog.
