MCSPCA staff available for pet tips as owners return to work

While the Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MCSPCA) is in the business of finding homes for pets, it has introduced a resource to keep pets in their homes as well.

With the surge in pet adoptions during the COVID-19 quarantine period, getting ready to go back to work may be a tough transition for pets who have been able to enjoy the constant company of their humans at home, according to a press release from the MCSPCA.

To ease back into a work schedule, the adoption and behavior staff at the MCSPCA have amassed several resources for the public to take advantage of, all available on the shelter’s website, according to the press release.

From dog training and do-it-yourself enrichment to cat playtime and toys, the Monmouth County SPCA wants to make sure people and their pets are prepared

“In light of all the sadness and hardship endured during the COVID-19 crisis, the MCSPCA was thrilled to see the large uptick in adoptions,” said Chief Ross Licitra, executive director of the organization, which is based in Eatontown.

“That being said, we want adopters to be certain the MCSPCA will continue to be here to ensure they are able to keep their new pets safe and at home. I am proud of the resources our staff is offering to those who may need them,” Licitra said.

Questions and concerns may be sent directly to the shelter’s trainers and adoption managers. For more information, visit or call 732-542-5962.
