It's time for another Adoption Monday which means another four-legged friend to help start your week with a smile!

This week our friends at the Monmouth County SPCA bring us Angel with a smile that can brighten even the dreariest Monday morning.

Angel is a 4-year-old terrier mix who was surrendered when her family had to move and could not take her along. She was only with that family for a couple of months but they described her as sweet playful girl who loved all the people she met. She is currently staying with a wonderful foster family who was so kind to take her in while we search for a forever home.

When Angel came to the SPCA she was limping due to an inflamed and painful front leg. After a consult with a few veterinary specialists it was determined that the painful site on her paw was not cancer (YAY!) but they did decide to amputate her leg due to the repeated pain and discomfort that Angel was experiencing. She is now fully recovered and loving life again! She is proof that a tripod can indeed be an athlete that can keep up with everyone!

Here are some of the wonderful things her foster mom has said about her:
Angel is loving, sweet, smart, playful and wants to please. Sunspots seem to be a favorite, as is squirrel-watching by the big old wild cherry tree. She loves treats and can find them even before you hide them to play a game. Red Barn bones, the bigger the better, are her favorite way to relax. Before I end, I must mention her very favorite thing…..being as close as caninely possible to her human. Velcro has nothing on her. She’s an amazing dog. She is great in the house. Angel is the best snuggler ever – she lies right on top of you and cuddles. Angel loves toys and squeaky balls. She loves to run and to roll around outside. Angel just loves life! She enjoys her breakfast at the beach every morning, and loves to go for long walks.

Now it is time for this special girl to find her forever family.

Adoption Monday is sponsored by the Monmouth County SPCA, which provided the following info on its mission and history:

The Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was founded in 1945 to care for the community’s homeless, neglected and abused animals. The MCSPCA is not affiliated with any other shelter or welfare organization. We are not affiliated with, nor do we receive a majority of our funding from the Humane Society of the United States, the ASPCA, or the Associated Humane Societies, Inc.

Our mission is to protect and advocate for all animals. We are dedicated to enforcing animal cruelty laws; providing a safe haven for homeless, abused and abandoned pets while they await adoption; reducing pet over-population through spay/neutering; and cultivating their humane treatment through education and service as a valuable community resource.

Our vision is to be established firmly with our own unique identity throughout NJ and the animal welfare community as a leader in all things related to animals in Monmouth County and the people who care for them. We will be responsible for ensuring that all animal abuse is prosecuted and will increase our support of campaigning for the rights of animals in NJ. We will be a strong partner with other animal welfare organizations throughout the state in order to develop and share best practices, and to work together to make NJ a place where every animal is treated with respect, kindness and love.
