KENILWORTH, NJ - Meet Gizmo, Kenilworth’s TAPinto Pet of the Week!

Gizmo was adopted from Evergreen Street in Newark, New Jersey on Dec 23, 2013 when he was one year old. He was found on the block of the animal shelter by one of the employees while walking another dog. Someone must have just dropped him off?  The shelter had to keep Gizmo for seven days just in case Gizmo’s family came looking for him, but that never happened. At this time in our life my wife was going for a very severe surgery and I thought this would be great for her recovery.  Also, our son had been asking for a dog for years, so it just made sense. So the Candarella family was granted to take Gizmo home on Dec  26, 2013 and he has been in our family ever since.  Gizmo is very happy, playful, very loving, well-kept and very protective.
