Coming Home Rescue:

Have you ever considered fostering a homeless pet? Coming Home Rescue provides foster homes to animals in need while they await their forever homes.

Most of their foster dogs come from New Jersey shelters where they have been surrendered or found on the streets. A foster home provides an enriched environment where the dogs can relax and regain the trust in humans that they have lost. They become much more attractive to prospective adopters when able to live a normal home life with a loving individual or family.

Also sharing the Coming Home Rescue table at “Bark in the Park Night” was Joshua Heffler, representative for Liberty Mutual Insurance. Heffler is helping to raise funds for the group.

“Obtain a quote on auto insurance between now and August 13, 2014, and Liberty Mutual will donate $10 to Coming Home Rescue,” said Heffler.

Heffler can be contacted by email at

Coming Home Rescue is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on helping homeless animals in shelters throughout New Jersey.

Animal Alliance of New Jersey:

Volunteers from Animal Alliance of New Jersey with adoptable dogs in tow were a hit with visitors to the “Bark in the Park” event. Who could resist petting a cute pooch wearing an “Adopt Me” vest?

Animal Alliance is proud of their proprietary foster dog kennel located in Hopewell Township, New Jersey. The kennel is fully staffed, and enrichment is provided to the dogs by volunteer dog walkers who augment their four trips outside daily with additional walks and "field trips" to nearby Lambertville.

The volunteers at “Bark in the Park” were hosted at the vendor table of Chasing Dreams, a mobile animal massage and photonic therapy service. Owner Cathy Sauer is a staunch supporter of animal rescue efforts and helps to promote animal welfare along with her animal therapy business.

“There are so many wonderful and loving pets in shelters, please open your heart and home,” advised Sauer. “Visit your local shelters, and adopt your next best friend.”

Animal Alliance is a nonprofit animal welfare agency founded in 2001. They offer a robust pet adoption program and operate a low cost spay/neuter clinic in Lambertville, New Jersey. Visit the Animal Alliance website for more information
