St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center is inviting potential adopters to visit its Madison campus to meet dogs and puppies rescued in Howell. St. Hubert’s staff has been providing round-the-clock care and addressing the medical, social and emotional needs of those in the organization’s care.
“When the Monmouth County SPCA Law Enforcement Division realized that we were facing an historical hoarding event, we knew that we would need to call on all our partners in animal welfare, law enforcement and emergency response,” said Ross Licitra, executive director of the Monmouth County SPCA.
Of the 276 dogs and puppies rescued on June 3 by Monmouth County SPCA, St. Hubert’s, and Associated Humane Societies, St. Hubert’s welcomed 141 dogs and puppies into its shelters; many have been transferred to area partners, and 42 will be available for adoption this weekend at St. Hubert’s Madison and North Branch shelters. Others still in foster care will be available in the coming weeks.
St. Hubert’s experienced adoption counselors welcome the opportunity to assist adopters in finding their perfect matches, both among the dogs rescued from Howell, and all the other beautiful pets waiting to find new, loving homes.
“St. Hubert’s is so grateful for the outpouring of support for the wonderful dogs and puppies that have come into our care from the case in Howell,” said Heather Cammisa, president & CEO of St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center.
Donations towards the care of these dogs are urgently needed and greatly appreciated; the spay and neuter surgeries alone provided at St. Hubert’s for the dogs from this case will reach $10,000. Those who can lend support can donate at www.sthuberts.org/howelldogrescue. More information, including adoption updates and details about other shelters in the area with adoptable dogs from this case, can also be found at the above web address.
