Our Point Pets of the Week are being honored for the color of their fur! AND they need good homes.

The Monmouth County SPCA, in conjunction with Best Friends Animal Society, is holding their third annual Back in Black event for cats and dogs in need of adoption.

Kermit is a 4 year old American Pit Bull Terrier mix who came from a less-than-ideal environment. He is physically scarred from his experiences. Kermit is a very sweet dog who craves attention. He's calm and mellow and would make a loving companion. He'd prefer a home without other pets. Kermit enjoys a quick game of 'tug'. He knows 'sit' and is waiting for his chance to shine in a loving family.

Rudy is a 7 year old sweetheart! He's a mush ball with a smooshy face...so cute and cuddly and gets along great with other cats! He is a gentle kitty who loves to be pet and loved. Rudy came to the MCSPCA because his former owner had to move into a nursing home :( He would be happiest living with at least one other kitty.
