Winter Safety for Pets

Tips on keeping your pet healthy this season

We know you love your pets; we do, too! Each season, we take time to revisit a bunch of dos and don’ts on keeping our pets safe. We thought we’d pass these tips on …

  • DON’T let pets near antifreeze. It bears repeating -the sweet scent attracts animals but it is toxic. Clean up spills immediately.
  • DO keep walkways clear of ice and snow. Forgo the salt and try a pet-friendly ice-melt compound instead. Our faves: Safe Paw and Earth Friendly Products brand.
  • Even pups with thick coats can develop frostbite. DON’T keep pets outdoors in frigid temps for extended periods.
  • DO enjoy the season with your pet!

By being cautious and thoughtful this season, you and your pet can safely enjoy all the fun that winter has to offer!

Name:     Little Foot

Age:         2 years old

Sex:         Male

Hi there! My name is Little Foot. I’m a very gentle and lovable boy who loves other cats. I can be a bit timid and shy at first, but once I feel comfortable with you, I’m a big mush!! I’m an absolute sweetheart who just loves to be petted. I’m a muffin maker!!! I’m about 2 years young.

Giraffe – Dog Adoption – Monmouth County SPCA, NJ

Name:     Giraffe

Age:        3 years old

Sex:        Female

Breed:    Terrier mix

Hello! My name is Giraffe and I am 3 year old terrier mix.  No one seems to know how I got my name… lol! My original owner had called me Jewel which works, since I am a beautiful jewel!  I came to stay here at the Monmouth County SPCA after my last owner had to move and was not able to take any pets with her.  I can be a shy girl at first so I am hoping to have a nice quiet home without too much chaos so I can unwind and relax. It might take me a little time to warm up you at first, but once I do I will be snuggling up to you for some attention and cuddle time. [click to continue…]

Adele and Angelo – Cat Adoption – Monmouth County SPCA, NJ

Name:     Adele and Angelo

Ages:      4 and 2 1/2 years old

Sex:        Female and Male

Breed:     DSH

One of the best loves is that between a mommy and son. We are an adorable and fluffy example of that! We are Adele and Angelo, a sweet and snuggly pair of kitty cats. Adele is about 4 years old and Angelo is about 2 1/2 years young. Originally, we were found as a stray feline family. There were 3 kittens total, and the first 2 got adopted together. Angelo and Adele were also adopted together and continued that strong mother/son bond with the new  family.

Unfortunately, that home wasn’t forever. The adoptive family owners moved into an apartment that did not allow animals, so they returned us to the shelter to find another home. It’s upsetting to think you’ve found a forever home and then poof, it’s gone! It’s stressful to find yourself living again at an animal shelter. [click to continue…]

Frankie – Dog Adoption – Monmouth County SPCA, NJ

Name:    Frankie

Age:        1 year old

Sex:        Male

Breed:    Wire-haired Terrier mix

Hi there! I am Frankie, a 1 year old wire-haired terrier mix who originally was rescued from Puerto Rico. I was adopted by a nice family who lived in NYC but, as it turns out, I am not cut out to be a city boy!!  I prefer to live in a much quieter setting where I can relax and smell the flowers. I came to the Monmouth County SPCA so I could find a nice home away from all the hustle and the bustle of city life. Since I’m doing so well in suburbia, that is where I am looking to stay. My friends at the shelter promised me that I don’t have to ever live in a big city again!!

I can be a little shy at first but, once I get to know you, I will be jumping up in your lap and giving you lots of kisses!!!

I do love to be the center of attention, so I am hoping to find a home where I can be the only pet so that I can be spoiled rotten!!!  I am a smart boy who knows many of my basic commands. I am very food-motivated, and I’m looking forward to learning even more tricks with you! I do love to play and then, when play time is over I will curl up with you for some snuggle time. I’m the best of both worlds-what more could you ask for?

Please contact the Monmouth County SPCA for more information at 732-542-5962. Inquiries can also be sent to adoptions@monmouthcountyspa.org.

Meet Jack! Playful Pup Friend of River Run Pet Sitters!

Nickname:     Captain Jack

Breed:            Australian Cattle Dog

Birthday:        June 1st

For straight-up exercise or playtime, Jack totally loves the outdoors! He is a regular on the hiking trails near his house and he loves strolling the neighborhood. But Jack’s front yard is also his personal playground and he goes absolutely ga-ga for his soccer ball! We keep trying to get the ball by him, but this guy is the best goalie we’ve ever met!

Jack can also be a real couch potato: He LOVES Animal Planet and keeps his paws crossed for the bad guys to be apprehended on every Animal Cops episode!

Jack is a rescue from the Monmouth County SPCA. His mom was immediately drawn to his energy and spunk and they’ve been a happy family ever since. Now that’s what we call a “Jack”pot!

[That’s Jack, above, enjoying some sunshine. He gives new meaning to the term “dog days of summer!”]

The Many Benefits of Exercising your Dog

While most people are aware that dogs require exercise, many are surprised that a number of common behavioral problems are directly linked to a lack of adequate mental and physical stimulation.  Just like humans, dogs require daily exercise; however, the benefit for dogs is arguably even greater than for people.  There are few breeds that do not require at least 30 minutes of vigorous activity a day, while most dogs have exercise requirements that range from 1 – 3 hours daily.  [click to continue…]
