The Monmouth County SPCA (MCSPCA) has something to celebrate. Their annual Dog Walk and Pet Fair is heading into its 20th year on October 5, 2013. Help them celebrate and join over 2,000 people and their pets for this yearly event.
The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, New Jersey. The Corporate Partner who is helping to make this event a success is Red Bank Veterinary Hospital.
Bring the entire family. The MCSPCA is keeping the energy high with live music by The Wag and DJ DPN at the finish line. With over 75 vendors signed up, there will be shopping, food and refreshments for people and pets.
Other activities include doggie demos, brand new contests, lots of prizes, and a huge 50/50 drawing. Tickets for the 50/50 are currently available at all MCSPCA locations for only $10 each, with last year’s winner taking home over $15,000.
Register online now and collect pledges from your friends and family for your chance to win a brand new 20th Anniversary fundraising prize. The prizes include Dog Walk hats, pet portrait sessions, duffle bags, tie-dyed T-shirts, hoodies and more.
The person who collects the most pledges will have their dog featured as the 2014 Honorary Chairdog on T-shirts, brochures, flyers, banners and billboards throughout Monmouth County.
This year the Walk will feature three contests for your dogs to compete in. The highly anticipated Canine Costume Contest, a brand new Doggie Pie Eating Contest, and a heartwarming Inner Beauty Contest, where contestants are given one minute or less to describe how their dog has brought beauty into their life or the lives of others.
“This year the MCSPCA's Eatontown location will be open for cat-only adoptions with special adoption promotions, since all of our dogs will be hitting the runway in our adoptables parade,” explained Jerry Rosenthal, MCSPCA President and CEO. “The annual event is our largest fundraiser every year, and 2012 saw over 2,000 people and their pets in attendance and raised more than $130,000 for the animals in our care.”
The Monmouth County SPCA & Homeward Bound Adoption Center is located at 260 Wall Street, Eatontown, NJ 07724 Telephone: 732-542-0040
