Help Dogs go Home for the Holidays

Eatontown, NJ - The Monmouth County SPCA is encouraging residents to take advantage of all October has to offer before the month is over. In addition to pumpkin patches and trick-or-treating, October is also national Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog month and in honor of this special event, the Monmouth County SPCA is offering a special half price adoption rate to help more dogs find homes in time for the holidays.

 “We have nearly 100 loving dogs looking for homes of their own and there is no better way to honor Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month than by saving a life at the Monmouth County SPCA,” said Jerry Rosenthal, President and CEO of the Monmouth County SPCA. “We encourage you to add a new member to your family at the shelter this month. We have a match for everyone– puppies, dogs of all ages, active and mellow personalities and we want to send as many home before the holidays as possible,” added Rosenthal.

Pets are priceless, but in  honor of this special event, the Monmouth County SPCA is offering a special half price adoption rate for dogs (1 year and older) from Saturday, October 25 through the end of the month.  Your new companion will be spayed/neutered, microchiped, and vaccinated. 

Even though it is Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month, the Monmouth County SPCA also has over 300 purrfect kittens and cats ready to meet their matches as well. 

The Monmouth County SPCA Adoption Centers at 260 Wall Street, Eatontown and at the Freehold mall are open 7 days a week. Stop in, meet your match  and give homeless animals the second chance they deserve.

About the Monmouth County SPCA

 Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was founded in 1945 to care for the community's homeless, neglected and abused animals.  Our mission is to protect and advocate for all animals. We are dedicated to enforcing animal cruelty laws; providing a safe haven for homeless, abused and abandoned pets while they await adoption; reducing pet over-population through spay/neutering; and cultivating their humane treatment through education and service .  In 2013 we cared for more than 4,000 animals.  The Monmouth County SPCA relies solely on private donations to fund these important initiatives.

We provide services to the community including pet adoption, low cost spay/neuter and vaccine services, dog training and behavior, humane law enforcement, lost and found, trap neuter and return for free-roaming cats, humane education, pet therapy, a pet food pantry for low-income families as well as our Pittie Project (pro-active programs to microchip & neuter bully breeds to reduce the number that enter shelters).
