We are always thrilled to help the Monmouth County SPCA introduce you to our "Pet of the Week" each Thursday on the morning show, and we were just as proud to be part of the MCSPCA's "Fur Ball" this past Saturday in Freehold.

The event was amazing. It is so touching to be in a room full of people making a difference for animals in search of their forever home. The generosity and love in that room was certainly a great representation of the care and concern that has become synonymous with the Jersey Shore.

I also want to thank the MCSPCA for honoring Townsquare Media for their continued support of the animals in our area. As I said at the event, we are humbled by the recognition, but know that the real work is done by the staff and volunteers that, on a daily basis, make the Monmouth County SPCA the amazing organization it is. What an honor to be a small part of their incredible work.
