TOMS RIVER TOWNSHIP- The official ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Toms River Animal Shelter is still a few months away, but the interior of the facility is open and ready for pet adoptions.


The impressive two-million dollar facility, located at 235 Oak Avenue, next to the Police Station, shutters the antiquated facility on Whitesville Road. “The former location was close to Jackson Township and out of the way for a majority of our residents,” Mayor Tom Kelaher states. “This building not only modernizes the needs of an animal shelter, but it is centrally located for the residents of Toms River.”

Youth Services Held Family Bonding Nights PDF Print E-mail

Toms River Youth Services recently held two events for parents to spend one-on-one time with their children.


“Back in January, we held our first-ever ‘Daddy and Me’ night at the Toms River Youth Services. ‘Daddy and Me’ was created to help bring dads and their children together, to spend some quality time alone,” said Adam Silversmith, Toms River Youth Services Division Manager.  During their “Daddy and Me” session, families put together wooden crafts such as the Statue of Liberty, butterflies or a jet.  Silversmith added, “The children and dads worked together and when the dads ran into some difficult steps, they sought assistance from other dads.  It was a great time seeing everyone interact and helping out one another.  The children also ate pizza and dessert with their dads.” Click here for more
