Home for Good Dogs Rescue to Celebrate Grand Re-Opening

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ —Berkeley Heights-based nonprofit organization Home for Good Dog Rescue will host a Grand Re-opening Event on Saturday, June 18 to celebrate the launch of its newly renovated retail shoppe and expanded doggrooming services.
“At our facility in Berkeley Heights, we offer every dog essential you could need, including premium food, treats, and toys, in addition to high-quality, professional dog grooming,” Donation Manager Abbe Fried said. “All proceeds go directly to our rescue mission and help us save even more dogs from euthanasia.”  
The festivities will begin at 10:00 AM with a ribbon cutting outside the organization’s headquarters, 465 Springfield Ave. in Berkeley Heights. A dog adoption open house will follow from noon to 5 PM.
Funded through the generosity of an anonymous benefactor, Home for Good’s expanded retail space now hosts a dedicated area for potential adopters to meet and interact with prospective dogs. 
“Our adoptable dogs will be waiting to meet visitors all day long on June 18 in the hopes of finding forever homes of their very own,” Fried continued. “We also invite all our guests to enjoy storewide discounts and exclusive offers at our shoppe. Its sure to be an exciting day!”
Attendees will receive a 10 percent discount on all pet products at the Home for Good retail shoppe in addition to a special discount off their first appointment with the organization’s professional groomer, who will be onsite from noononward offering dogs nail trims for a small donation to Home for Good’s rescue mission.
“Our unique ‘no crate, no wait’ grooming services mean your dog will be ready only an hour so after you drop him or her off,” Fried explained. “We treat our four-legged clients with the upmost care, and they never have to wait around in a kennel for their turn in the bath!”
The rescue organization is also offering special incentives for previous adopters to take home their second rescue dog onJune 18. Any family that does so will receive a free bag of premium dog food to welcome their new companion to the family.
Since its inception in 2010, Home for Good Dog Rescue has successfully placed nearly 4,500 rescue dogs in permanenthomes throughout New Jersey. Through its uniquely foster-based system, each dog resides in a local foster home rather than in a kennel until adoption. Its Grand Re-opening event is rain or shine.
