Jersey City, NJ (2/17/2016) —Liberty Humane Society reports that 93 animals were adopted during its first adoption promotion of 2016 between February 1 and February 14. Of those, 54 adult cats were adopted and 19 adult dogs. One of the cats to find a home during the promotion had been in residence at the shelter for 340 days. The cat, Barry, came from a hoarding situation in Bayonne in early 2015 along with 52 other cats. He was the last from the group still left at the shelter. Another cat, a tortoiseshell named Pumpkin, had been waiting to find a home for over 600 days.
Irene Borngraeber, Executive Director of LHS, says: “Thanks to the support of our community 93 local animals—the vast majority adult dogs and cats—are now celebrating adoption in loving homes. We are so grateful to our adopters who recognize that each and every pet is deserving of a family. Your actions help us save countless more lives throughout the year.” Continue reading NINETY THREE ANIMALS FOUND “THEIR ONE” DURING LIBERTY HUMANE SOCIETY ADOPTION PROMOTION
