The Monmouth County SPCA will host an adoption event on Oct. 17 from noon to 4 p.m. at World Subaru, 688 Shrewsbury Ave., in Shrewsbury. The event will feature adoptable dogs and puppies, and have a fun autumn theme, with a pumpkin patch and pumpkins for purchase, haystacks and a fall-themed photobooth. All are welcome to attend.

Thanks to the ASPCA & Subaru Loves Pets Grant Program, all of the dogs and puppies will have been fully vetted (vaccinated, microchipped, spay/neutered, etc.) before going home with their forever families. Aside from the MCSPCA’s adoptable dogs, this will be a human-only event, however, dog-dog meets for potential adopters can take place at the Eatontown shelter at a later date, according to a press release.

World Subaru will be donating $100 for each animal adopted in October, up to $3,100. For more information about the adoption event, email, call 732-440-1557 or visit
