Sheraton Eatontown Festival of Trees Support and Spirit Series post is on Monmouth County SPCA. This year, our annual event will feature over 30 local charitable and non-profit organizations. We are writing a post on each participating group with the hope of educating and drawing in folks who may never have heard of them before. Our Festival of Trees team wants to raise money for charity and make this our best year out of the 22 we have been hosting Festival of Trees.

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. We are a private, not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization led by a volunteer board of trustees. We are an independent organization not affiliated with, and receiving no funding from, the ASPCA, HSUS or Associated Humane Societies.   The MCSPCA is not a government agency and receives little or no funding from federal, state or local governments.  Our ability to care for the community’s animals is supported solely by modest fees and donations.

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.
