Eatontown, NJ - The Monmouth County SPCA celebrated 21 Years of Paws Walking for a Cause at the 21st Annual Spring Dog Walk & Pet Fair on Saturday, April 25 at Brookdale Community College. The event, held in conjunction with corporate partner Red Bank Veterinary Hospital, surpassed all fundraising goals, raising $140,000 for the thousands of homeless animals that pass through the shelter every year.

 

Over 2,000 people and their pets convened on the Brookdale Campus to enjoy the festivities and support the mission of the MCSPCA. Guests enjoyed a variety of gourmet food vendors including JerZey EatZ and Max’s Hot Dogs, as well as treats from Candy Clouded Cotton Candy and Tropical Sno Snow Cones. Activities included a demonstration from the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit, Dog agility through the Jersey Shore Agility Group, an Alumni Parade for dogs that were previously adopted from the shelter and a Cutest Tricks Contest, which was judged by the event emcee, Liz Jeressi of 94.3 The Point, Mrs. New Jersey Sandi Zalinsky, and event sponsor, M Studio.

Over 150 vendors displayed their unique products, with many donating 10% of their sales back to the shelter. One lucky winner took home over $11,000 through the 50/50 Raffle and luckiest of all were the 6 dogs that found their furever homes at the event!
