Our February Pet of the Month is Valentino. He is a one-year old grey and white short hair male cat looking for someone to love. Valentino is affectionate and is happiest when in your arms. He loves belly rubs and will roll right over for a good scratch – a great sign that he’ll get along with your young ones!

Valentino would love to come home with your and become a member of your family. Please visit him today!

If you would like to adopt Valentino, please contact the Gloucester County Animal Shelter at (856) 881-2828 x 1.


FROM THE DESK OF: Gloucester County Freeholder Daniel Christy

The year begins with promise

This past month I began serving as the Freeholder Liaison to Public Safety and Veterans Affairs. I got the opportunity to kick off this new role by participating in the 2019 Gloucester County Fire Chiefs Awards. The event was a great way to get involved with our local Fire Departments, but more importantly it really impressed upon me the essential role firefighters play in our community.

During the ceremony, awards were given to firefighters who had committed heroic acts. Some of the awardees had rescued residents from an apartment fire; others used CPR to save the life of an unconscious person. Some rescued a fellow firefighter who got trapped while responding to an emergency. These firefighters are everyday people; they’re our neighbors, friends, and coworkers, but they also dedicate their time and energy to protecting and saving the lives of others. They have a thankless job, but they continue to wake up every day wanting to help others even if it means risking their own safety.

This event really drove home how important the role firefighters are in our communities, and how dedicated they are to giving back. If you know a firefighter, take a moment to thank them for their service.
Congratulations to all of this year’s Gloucester County Fire Chiefs Association Award winners, and thank you for everything you do for our community.

Dan Christy, Gloucester County Freeholder
