The Monmouth County SPCA has received grant money to specifically rescue dogs from other shelters where they may be put down due to overpopulation.

The funding that the MCSPCA has received comes from the" ASPCA & Subaru Loves Pets Rescue Ride Program" and will go to rescue dogs from places where 'supply exceeds demand' and bring them to places where the animals have a higher chance of adoption.

The lucky dogs that will be saved will be rescued by the MCSPCA from "All Satos Rescue" in Puerto Rico and arrive at the MCSPCA late tonight. After medical clearance, the dogs will most likely be available for adoption next week.

The MCSPCA says the grant program allows them to give the 'underdogs' the best possible chance of finding a home. They use this grant money to save many animals and enrich the lives of new adopting families.

In 2016 the MCSPCA did 500 adoptions more than the previous year, and hopes to continue to increase the number of animals saved and adopted.

The MCSPCA was founded in 1945 to care for our community's homeless, neglected, and abused animals. Their mission is to protect and advocate for all animals. They are dedicated to enforcing animal cruelty laws, providing a safe haven for pets while they await adoption, reduce pet over-population through spay/neutering, and cultivate humane treatment of animals through education and service.

In 2016 the MCSPCA cared for more than 5,000 animals. The shelter relies solely on private donations to fund their programs.

There are many community services provided by the MCSPCA, including pet adoptions. low cost spay/neuter services, a weekly vaccine clinic, dog training and behavior, humane law enforcement, lost and found, trap neuter and return for free-roaming cats, humane education, pet therapy, as well as a pet food pantry for low-income families.
