    Story by Jodi Ilsye

    Acura of Denville has served NorthJersey for more than twenty years,but on Saturday October 22, the

    dealership putall paws on deck for petsafe-

    ty. Along with partner Mt. Pleasant AnimalShelter, Acura of Denville hosted amicrochipping clinic to help local pet own-ers protect the furry and fluffy members oftheir families.

    Unlike tags or collars, microchips last alifetime. Like a permanent pet ID, they arecurrently the most effective way of reunit-ing missing pets with their owners. That day

    over fifty dogs and cats were chipped at aspecial discounted rate, offering pet ownersa peace of mind Vice President StevenLustig understands all too well. I was dev-astatedwhen my dog Belle went missing for

    a few hours,he says.(Shewas off on a soloexplorationmission.) I knowwhat a differ-encea chipcan make. Im gladwe can offerthis service to our customers.

    Lustigs passion for animals runs in thefamily. The Lustigs are longtime supportersof pet adoption and welfare. In addition tosupporting national organizations as theASPCAand the US Humane Society, Acura

    Acura of Denvilles Pet Projectof Denville has assisted local Greyhoundadoption services and is a major supporterof Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter. Jax, theLustig family s Bearded Colli e, a Mt .Pleasant Animal Shelter adoptee, can oftenbe foundon the showroom floorat Acura ofDenville greeting customers. He was a tail-wagging presence at the microchippingevent, welcoming animals from the shelterstill looking fortheir foreverhome and nuz-zling noses with visitors on their way to thewater bowl. Dealership staff was on hand toserve treats to the guests and their keepers.

    This isnt the first time Acura of Denville

    and Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter have col-laborated for a good cause. In September,the dealership was a platinum sponsor ofMutts Mania at Lurker Park in EastHanover where over 800 guests, staff andvolunteers enjoyed browsing more than 50different vendors and pets got to try thedoggie agility classes, compete in the pettrick contestsand enjoy samples of toys andtreats.After thesuccessof the inaugural PetMicrochipping Clinic, the hope is that itwill become an annual event at the dealer-ship in the future. Jax has given it his fourlicks and a woof approval.
