AHS Spay/Neuter Van

Posted on: August 23rd, 2012 by admin

The Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park has announced that the Mobile Spay/Neuter van will be the Forked River location during the last two weeks of September offering low-cost spay/neuter services, vaccines and microchips.  All animals altered on the unit get their nails clipped, ears cleaned and sport a tattoo showing that they have been spayed.

 

Since this is only a 2 week effort, be sure to make your appointments early!

Lost Dogs

Posted on: March 7th, 2012 by admin No Comments

Rocky the boxer is 1.5 years old and has been missing since 10/01/11 from Lacey Township. He was last seen in January, 2012 in the Forked River section. Rocky is very scared. He is afraid of people. It is unlikely that he would go to a stranger on his own, but anything is possible.

Marley is a 2 year old Weimeraner and has been missing since 01/14/12. She was last seen in Howell. She is very timid and shy due to being abused in her previous home. Please do not chase her if you see her because she will run even further away.

Both families are devastated at the lost of their beloved babies. Rocky and Marley both have a team of very dedicated volunteers out looking for them day in and day out.
