COLTS NECK, NJ:  Associated Humane Tinton Falls gave A BIG SHOUT OUT:

Thank you to our friends at the Leonardo First Aid and Rescue Squad -- they helped us rescue an OSPREY that was tangled in rope, hanging upside down in a tree that was extended over a lake at the Colts Neck Naval base....

After several phone calls to many animal rescue folks, luckily, Kathy Cetron, a vet technician at Fair Haven Animal Hospital and true friend of animals, thought quickly to ask her husband, Lieutenant Ed Cetron of the Leonardo First Aid Squad if he could help. His answer was YES! Lieutenant Ed Cetron, Captain Colleen Kelly, and driver Bill Snell came out at 11PM on the cold evening to assist our Animal Control Officer (ACO) Javier Vargas, in the rescue.  

This group effort to rescue the OSPREY is a perfect example of team work for animals that sometimes need our help💓 We are happy to say, we didn’t let this osprey down! The OSPREY is currently at Raptor Trust, soon to be released back where he came from at the Naval base.

Please show your support for Leonardo First Aid Squad - true friends and heroes who save both people and animals every day! They are amazing people with such giving hearts!
