Not long after the Berkeley Heights event began, Carol Grapes had picked out its new dog, a lab-terrier-shetland mix, or as she said, “a mutt,” and was filling out the appropriate papers so she and her family could take it home.
Several hours later, six of the about 15 dogs at the site had found new homes, and there was still a crowd checking out the remaining dogs. All the dogs were younger than a year and many were under three months. Needless to say, the operative word was “cute.”
A total of 30 dogs, all of them from high kill shelters in Georgia and South Carolina, were up for adoption. Since coming to New Jersey, the dogs have been under the care of foster families, many of whom were on hand with the dogs.
Visit the group’s website to fill out a form to be pre-approved to adopt a dog. Home for Good Dog Rescue is always looking for volunteers, foster families and, of course, permanent homes for its dogs.
