“Sasha’s May Soiree” and “Ralph Breaks the Internet” at the Gloucester County Animal Shelter

On Saturday, May 20th, the Gloucester County Animal Shelter (GCAS) is hosting two unique events from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. that catered to two special VIP guests. The first event is for a beautiful dog named Sasha.  Sasha is a 3-year-old Pit Bull Terrier and the GCAS’s longest resident. She will be outside the adoption center door with volunteers, demonstrating how amazing and well-mannered of a dog she is, with the goal finding her forever family.

The next event is for a 10-year-old cat named Ralph. Ralph has been with us for months.   This poor guy came in needing much care, but he has finally healed and put on some weight.  Ralph is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Some hair is still growing back, so he’s only going to get more handsome.

“Both animals are one of a kind and are full of love,” said Commissioner Jim Jefferson. “Saturday will be a great day to help find them new homes. Anyone would be lucky to adopt Sasha and Ralph, and we are eager for these adorable pets to thrive with the right person or family.”

 While Saturday’s event is meant to highlight Ralph and Sasha, the GCAS has many other animals available, with staff and volunteers present to help interested individuals and families find their perfect match. The shelter has animals that can fit many needs, ranging from an individual with a busy work schedule, to a growing family with small children.

“The Gloucester County Animal Shelter is a wonderful county service that is near and dear to my heart,” said Commissioner Jefferson. “I encourage any resident who is interested in adding a pet to their home to come and check out what the animal shelter has to offer. Whether it is Sasha or one of our other residents, this is the place to find your next best friend.”

Any Gloucester County resident interested in adopting from GCAS can call (856) 881-2828 ext. 1 for adoptions.
