It’s time for another Adoption Monday!

Every other week we team up with the Monmouth County SPCA who joins Bill Spadea in the studio working to help four-legged friends find a new home.

You won't be able to see Brutis' smile on the radio but one look at him and you can see he is one happy pup.

Brutis is a 3-year-old Hound mix who is in need a forever home. He originally came from an overcrowded southern shelter in South Carolina. After that he was adopted out and returned because he was not doing well with sharing with his canine sibling.

While he does love to play with other dogs, he does not like to share his food or toys with them or anyone else. He was then adopted again just two weeks ago to be exact, but returned the next day as they felt that he was too big for their apartment. He did not hit a growth spurt overnight, but at 70 pounds he is not a little guy.

Brutis is a fun loving guy who enjoys car rides and walks in the park. He can be a little shy at times when first meeting people, but he is quite the lover boy once he gets to know you. He will lean in to get some pets and gives plenty of kisses in return. He is such a happy boy!!! Now he just needs to find a home that will be his forever home!

How to adopt:

The Monmouth County SPCA asks would-be pet parents to visit the Homeward Bound Adoption Center in Eatontown or the Adoption Center at the Freehold Raceway Mall to meet its pets. It only conducts adoptions in person, and asks that you please bring all family members. To receive more information, call the adoption line: 732-542-5962.

More information on adopting, the requirements and fees is at the Monmouth County SPCA’s website.

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.
