The Monmouth County SPCA (MCSPCA) never stands still in reaching out to help animals and those who support their cause. Every year, the Super Pet Expo in Edison, New Jersey, provides an excellent venue to showcase their latest projects and animal rescue efforts.
This year, the MCSPCA featured not only adoptable pets and upcoming events, but two very special outreach projects.
“The Super Pet Expo is a great experience that we look forward to attending every year,” said Lisa Mulhearn, booth representative and former public relations manager for the Monmouth County SPCA. “This was the first time that the Pet Pantry and the Pittie Project representatives attended independently. Both had wonderful experiences with meeting new clients as well as having alumni stop by and say ‘hi’ at the adoption booth.”
The goal of the Pittie Project is to get out into communities and offer support and education to help reduce the number of pit bulls in the shelter. Presently, half the dogs housed at the MCSPCA at any point in time are pit bulls or pit bull mixes. On average, these dogs have longer lengths of stay, and the longer the length of stay, the more likely any dog will require behavior protocols and specialized training to remain adoptable during their time at the shelter.
Pit bulls are a very misunderstood breed and can make a loving addition to someone’s home. To learn more about the MCSPCA Pittie Project, visit this website page.
The Pet Pantry Project helps people in Monmouth County and the surrounding areas keep their beloved pets at home, rather than surrendering them to a shelter by providing food, leashes and other pet care items.
Most recently the MCSPCA, the Visitation Relief Center partnered along with the Do It Duo For Pets, Inc. to help meet the demand of those in need. The MCSPCA was at the VRC in Brick all day on February 10, 2014 distributing food and enrolling families into the Pet Pantry program who were victims of Sandy and still in need.
