Proceeds to Benefit the Homeless Animals

Eatontown, NJ - The Monmouth County SPCA celebrated 22 Years of Paws Walking for a Cause at the 22nd Annual Spring Dog Walk & Pet Fair on Saturday, April 30 at Brookdale Community College. The event, held in conjunction with corporate partner Red Bank Veterinary Hospital, surpassed all fundraising goals, raising $139,000 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 Try Vegan and Max’s Hot Dogs, as well as treats from Gerard Capizzi Zeppole and Hinilickity’s Ice Cream. Activities included a demonstration from the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit, Dog agility through the Jersey Shore Agility Group (JAG), an Alumni Parade for dogs that were previously adopted from the shelter and a Cutest Tricks Contest, which was judged by the event emcee, Jimmy Steal of 95.9 The WRAT plus special attendees of the event.

Over 150 vendors displayed their unique products, with many donating 10% of their sales back to the shelter. One lucky winner took home over $10,000 through the 50/50 Raffle and luckiest of all were the 5 dogs that found their forever homes at the event!
