It's time for the first Adoption Monday of September, courtesy of our friends at the Monmouth County SPCA.

This time around they've brought us Milo. Milo is a 11-month-old Lab, Hound, maybe Terrier mix – all we know for sure is that he’s absolutely adorable! He was surrendered by his Ocean Township family when they felt their home was too small for him. He was then adopted and returned after one day as his new family felt he had too much energy for their home. He does love to have some space and run as this energetic boy would excel with some agility training – he can be quite the athlete!!!

Milo is still very young and therefore very playful, but he is also a smart boy. Milo is always willing to work for treats!!! He is currently learning all of his basic commands and he is very much at the head of the class. If he had a job to do he would be the employee of the month!

Milo loves to play, and fetch is his favorite game! He also enjoys walks with his friends, he gets so excited when he sees them coming his way with a leash in their hand. He knows the routine and will sit and wait for his reward! He really has so much to offer for a family that wants a loyal companion to keep at their side.

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.
