Our Point Pet of the Week is looking for her forever home. Can you help?

Cricket was originally rescued from a shelter down south where she would have been put down simply because of overcrowding. She is about a year old and most likely some sort of Hound/Terrier mix which means she is both smart AND beautiful!

This adorable girl has made so many new friends since coming to the Monmouth County SPCA and loves to go on walks. Volunteers say that Cricket is a very good walker with very ladylike manners. She enjoys going to the park, the beach, or just about anywhere!

Once your walk with her is over, she likes to climb into your lap and give you kisses. It must be her way of expressing her thanks : )

If you would like to meet Cricket, she is at the Eatontown location of the MCSPCA (closed Tuesdays). For more info, CLICK HERE or call 732-542-4962. You can also email: adoptions@monmouthcountyspca.org.
