The Bayview Animal Hospital in Toms River hosted their “2nd Annual Pet Adoption Day and Open House” on Sunday, June 10. The event hours were from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. From all accounts, it was a fun and successful day.
“The event went great,” said Melissa Connahey, manager of Bayview Animal Hospital. “During the course of the day, we had at least 150 people, 12 rescue groups, and 14 businesses in attendance. Nearly all the rescues received applications for their adoptable pets.”

The children attending were treated to a bounce house, craft area, face painting, and balloon animals. There were also dog obedience demonstrations and “dress like a vet” photos.
Money was raised on behalf of the rescue groups through a 50/50 raffle, additional raffle chances, and refreshment sales.
The Grand Prize consisted of a free pet exam and nail trim (new or existing client) at the Bayview Animal Hospital, a six month supply of Simpleguard, a gift certificate worth $75 off services at Endless Pawsabilites, a Royal Canin tote bag, and more.
