Proceeds from the Dinner and Tricky Tray Event will benefit Home for Good Dog Rescue. Home for Good is a 100 percent volunteer-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue. Their mission is to rescue, nurture and place adoptable dogs into loving homes for good. Home for Good rescues dogs from high-kill shelters (dogs at high risk of being euthanized due to shelter overcrowding) and matches them with loving families in the New Jersey and the surrounding area.
Funding for the organization is from individual donations, fundraisers and other private contributors. The organization does not receive government funds. Monies are used for transportation, medical care, food and other supplies for the dogs.
Since their founding in August 2010, Home for Good has successfully placed over 825 dogs into permanent “forever” homes. Home for Good is run by dedicated professionals who volunteer their time and resources to help homeless dogs. They rely heavily on their foster program which provides temporary housing and a loving family environment until the dogs are adopted into permanent homes. Home for Good provides veterinary care and all food and supplies while the dog is in foster care.
Dogs available for adoption are posted on Petfinder.com and through a link on their website www.homeforgooddogs.org. Adoption events are held at various pet supply stores in the Essex, Morris and Union County area on weekends.
