It's time for another Adoption Monday and what better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than to bring home a furry friend from the Monmouth County SPCA.

This week's pup is King. You might not be able to tell from his bark, but King was originally a southern boy who came to the SPCA as part of a transfer program in search of a home to call his own.

This approximately 3-year-old mixed breed is full of life with a lot of personality packed into his little body. He is only 25 pounds and he is fully grown! As for his breed, we are not sure what he is but we think maybe some terrier/corgi type of mix. Who knows! Either way it's adorable!!!!

This energetic boy loves to play. Fetch is his favorite game. He also enjoys attention and will seek out lots of pets and attention from his human friends. This boy has such a love of life that he will be certainly brings years of happiness to any family.

We hope we are able to find this sweet boy a home. He is located at our Eatontown location at 260 Wall Street. We are open Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays from 12 noon to 5 pm and Wednesdays - Fridays from 12 noon to 7 pm.

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.
