The 4th Annual New Jersey Week for the Animals will take place August 16-24, 2014. Join us in planning this historic week for New Jersey animals! Please join our Facebook community and let's all twitter for New Jersey animals.
Throughout the week, shelters, rescue groups, and humane organizations across the state will be hosting wonderful animal-related special events. Educators, students, businesses and caring citizens across will be joining in with activities to celebrate and help animals. National Homeless Animals Day falls on August 16th so we are excited to further underscore the plight of shelter animals and how they need us all.
Events will include adoption fairs, spay/neuter events, shelter & sanctuary days, R.E.A.D. dog programs in libraries, educational activities for farm animals and therapy dogs visiting hospitals and living-assisted homes.
Also to be included are a salute to our K-9 military and police dogs, cat educational initiatives, bikers for animals event, special programs, blessings for the animals, and full-filled festival days for families to come and enjoy food, music and the amazing animals!
Please become involved! We need animal lovers everywhere to come together and plan. See the "Become Involved" page for great ideas and suggestions on what you can do. Please contact us for other ideas and to brainstorm.
Note we will be adding events and activities up to the kick off of the week. We all seek to collectively help celebrate this very special New Jersey Week for the Animals! Together we will create new, lasting friendships and make history for the amazing animals.
