In addition to the chance to start the adoption process, attendees can also help the other pets at North Shore Animal Leagues. Those who cannot adopt can still help by puchasing goods from one of the many vendors present, entering raffles or making a donatuon to North Shore Animal League.

According to Samantha Lawrence, Brightview Paramus' executive director, a variety of pet-related vendors, including PetSmart and Pet Valu, will be selling goodies Saturday. There will also be music, as well as concessions available for purchase.

“Brightview Paramus is a pet friendly community and what better way to illustrate that than to host this special pet adoption event?” Lawrence said. “It is very important to us to be engaging and positive members of the great Paramus community. We look forward to connecting with Paramus while offering loving homes to pets in need."

Lindsaid Fairchild, Brightview Paramus' Vibrant Living Director, said, "We are thrilled to be partnering with North Shore Animal League and the Paramus Community to celebrate and help adopt some furry friends.”
