EATONTOWN, NJ - The Monmouth County SPCA celebrated 23 Years of Paws Walking for a Cause at their Annual Spring Dog Walk & Pet Fair on Saturday, April 29th at Brookdale Community College. The event, held in conjunction with corporate partner Red Bank Veterinary Hospital, was a huge success for the organization, raising $136,000 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. The Monmouth County SPCA welcomed back Senator Raymond Lesniak to discuss his important work in animal welfare for New Jersey. Guests enjoyed a variety of gourmet food vendors including Alternative Plate, Max’s Hot Dogs and the Empanada Monster as well as treats from Hinlickity’s Ice Cream Truck, Café Diem and Northeast Kettle Corn. Activities included live demonstrations 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 plus a Cutest Tricks Contest, which was judged by several of the special attendees.
The Monmouth County SPCA now looks forward to their upcoming events such as their first annual "Nine & Dine" Golf Tournament held on June 6th, a "Rescue, Reuse, Recycle" day held on June 10th, and of course their Fur Ball Gala being held on October 14th at the Sheraton in Eatontown.
