The OceanFirst Charity Challenge launches on Monday, April 14th at 12:00pm ET and runs through May 9th.
The team that raises the most during the Challenge wins a $10,000 grant for their charity from OceanFirst Foundation. Second place gets $3,000 and third gets $2,000. And, there will be Bonus Challenges each week where the charities can win extra $500 Good Neighbor Grants for their cause.
The best part of the Challenge is that even if The Jersey Shore Animal Center doesn't win any of the grand prize money, JSAC gets to keep the money raised during the campaign. It's a win for everyone. Please click the Ocean First Banner for more info.

GINGER IS IN RECOVERY!!
Ginger had a surgery called Total Ear Canal Ablation (TECA) due to chronic ear infections and the pain associated with them.
What is TECA? The ear is comprised of inner, middle, and external portions. The inner ear is responsible for balance and the connection of sound waves to the brain. The middle ear contains the tympanic bulla and ear drum. The external portions contain the ear canal and the pinna. A TECA is the surgical removal of the entire ear canal. A second procedure called a bulla osteotomy is performed during the same surgery. By opening and clearing the bulla of all infected material combined with the ear canal removal, the chances of future infection are greatly decreased.

Ginger's surgery cost $750. Dr. Cudia, an experienced veterinarian, had performed Ginger's surgery on 4/8/14. She is now in recovery and will remain this way for the next 2 to 3 weeks. She will be able to go home when she is all healed. We are taking applications on her and we are still raising money to pay for her surgery bill.
