LOCAL PHARMACY LATEST TO HELP HOMELESS PETS THROUGH AHS DIGITAL FRAME PROGRAM
LACEY TOWNSHIP, NJ -- Along with getting their prescriptions and health care needs, patrons of Medicine to Go Pharmacy on West Lacey Road, can check out the cats, dogs, puppies and kittens available for adoption at Associated Humane Societies Forked River Shelter.
That’s because Tom Kelly, owner of Medicine to Go Pharmacy, on West Lacey Road, is now helping homeless animals by participating in AHS innovative program that provides digital photo frames complete with updated pictures of cats, dogs, puppies and kittens awaiting adoption at their nearest AHS shelter in Newark, Forked River or Tinton Falls.
Tom Kelly, owner of Medicine to Go, on West Lacey Road, Forked River, displays his new digital frame that will help find homes for homeless animals.
Each photo in the continuous montage contains the pet’s name and tag number so a customer or client can view it and contact Associated Humane Societies about adoption.
Society staffers regularly visit participating businesses to change the flash drive so that pictures are updated regularly. An agreement with business owners would be to pay a $125 on the photo frame, which will be refunded when the frame is returned.
“We thank Mr. Kelly, the staff at Medicine to Go and all businesses who’ve taken advantage of this community service. Sometimes all it takes is for one person to see a picture and before we know it, that homeless animal now has a family,” said Roseann Trezza, Executive Director, Associated Humane Societies/Popcorn Park.
Business owners interested in this program can contact us at our Newark Executive Offices at 124 Evergreen Ave., Newark, 07114, attention Karen Powell or e-mail us here through the web site to receive a photo frame application. The frame will then be set up and brought to their office/store. Business owners who participate will also get a photo of their business placed on the AHS website, www.ahscares.org and in its publication, the HUMANE NEWS.
