The Monmouth County SPCA is hosting its annual Clear the Shelter this weekend, and News 12 New Jersey’s Jim Murdoch is showing off some of the animals up for adoption at the shelter in Eatontown.   
“Unfortunately not all of these animals find their forever homes all the time or very quickly, so this time of the year we do Clear the Shelter event where we offer really great discounts across the board to find a beautiful loving pet to take home,” said Ross Licitra, executive director of the Monmouth County SPCA.  
Each year, the Eatontown shelter takes in more than 5,000 animals – and some of them wait a long time before starting a new life.
“With kittens, we have adopt one-get one, we have all discounted prices on cats across the board and all of our dogs – a lot of them are just donation only – whatever donation you can make to the Monmouth County SPCA, you’ll leave with a beautiful dog,” said Ross.  
Older animals need forever homes also.  
“Our senior dogs are wonderful animals, and rescuing them gives them a second chance in life. They are usually house broken, calm, mild-mannered and make great pets,” said Ross.
