  TOMS RIVER – The Senior Leadership Class at Manchester Township High School is inviting the public to a special All Fur One Pet Adoption Day on Sunday, June 12.

  The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the 6th Avenue Park in Toms River. There will be face painting, refreshments, and a K-9 demonstration from 10 to 11 a.m.

  Adoptable dogs will be at the park for attendees to engage with, and cats that are currently available for adoption will be presented virtually. A Mr. Softee ice cream truck will be present and will donate a portion of their proceeds to the rescue during the event.

  Teacher Sarah Paturzo explained that All Fur One Pet Rescue in Toms River has partnered with the school district in an effort to engage students while meeting curriculum standards. She said her Leadership students wanted to incorporate this partnership at the high school level and decided to organize an adoption event at a local township park.


  Students from different grade levels throughout the district will be volunteering to greet community members, run activities, take photos and videos, and hand out information at the event.

  Paturzo added, “this should be an amazing day for our students, the community, and hopefully the rescue. Everything provided at the event will be free (with the exception of Mr. Softee), however, donations to All Fur One will be accepted.”
