Our Point Pet of the Week is a one-and-a-half year old Terrier mix that came to the Monmouth County SPCA as a stray.

Tyrus is exactly like the dog I had when my boys were little (our Boomer sadly passed away) so I have a soft spot for him.

Tyrus loves to play almost as much as he loves it when you pet him. He needs a fun and energetic family to take him to his favorite places like the beach.

You're invited to the SPCA to meet Tyrus and give him a forever home! The Monmouth County SPCA is open for adoption Monday - Friday, 1 pm - 5 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, Noon - 5 pm. They are located at 260 Wall Street in Eatontown.

You can also visit animals up for adoption at the SPCA's Homeward Bound Adoption Center inside Freehold Raceway Mall Thursday through Sunday during mall hours.

For more information, go to www.monmouthcountyspca.org or call 732-542-0040.

And please join in for the "Run for the Animals 3K and Doggie Dash" on Saturday, June 16th, at Monmouth Battlefield in Freehold starting at 10 am.
