TINTON FALLS – Associated Human Societies is welcoming a new member to the team! Brian Becker has joined up with the non-profit to become to new Trap Neuter Release (TNR) Program Coordinator, responsible for the development, implementation and oversight of the new TNR programs in both Newark and Tinton Falls.

Associated Humane Societies is a non-profit and the largest animal sheltering organization in NJ, with shelters in Newark, Tinton Falls and Forked River, including Popcorn Park.

“We are excited to support Brian as he partners with community leaders and volunteers to introduce and successfully execute a TNR program”, said Ronnie Ehrenspeck, Tinton Falls’ Shelter Manager.  “His experience and skills will definitely be an asset in reducing the number of stray animals.”

TNR programs are considered to be the most human and effective method of managing feral cat populations. As the new TNR Program Coordinator, Becker plans to improve and expand upon public outreach and education programs for TNR.

Becker will also work with Maria Cymanski, the organization’s Animal Control Officer in Forked River, who works with veterinary staff to care for the animals after they are neutered.
