It's time for another Adoption Monday, and just two days after National Dog Day the Monmouth County SPCA brings another four-legged friend looking for his forever home.

Thor is a one-and-a half-year-old Shepherd/Lab mix who came to the SPCA as an owner surrender from Keyport after his family had a new baby. Thor, having never met babies before, was not sure what to make of his new infant sibling and was not adjusting well.

Realizing this was not a good fit for Thor, his family brought him here to find a forever home to call his own. He was then adopted but that was not the right fit either as the family he was with had too much going and the busy lifestyle wasn't for this boy - he prefers a quieter setting where he can hang out with his friends.

Thor is a big puppy who loves to play and climb into your lap and just give tons of kisses to his friends. He loves his toys very much, especially squeaky toys and tennis balls!! He is also a smart boy who knows “sit”, “stay”, “come”, and “paw” and we bet he can learn more. He is a complete mush who will take all of the belly rubs you are willing to give him!!!

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.
