Puppy Costume Parade + Family Fall Festival!

As you all know, halloween is right around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than attending the Long Branch Fall Festival and Pooch Parade! This is an event for the WHOLE family to enjoy, puppies included! It will take place at Pier Village, along the oceanfront boardwalk on Saturday, October 27th

Although the costumed puppies will definitely be the highlight of the event, there will be activities for the rest of the family to enjoy as well! The Festival will include bouncy rides, a costumed puppy parade, arts and crafts, touch a truck, craft vendors, a kids costume parade, Fresh Farmers and Makers Market, shopping, food and drink specials at local restaurants, and more!  A DJ will be present as well, along with costumed characters!

You will also be able to take the kiddies trick or treating throughout the shops of Pier Village and their Chamber of Commerce trailer and the Bungalow Hotel! They’ll love the idea of early trick or treating! The Pooch Parade will begin at 12pm, with the line-up happening at 11:30am. The Kids Costume Parade will begin at 2pm. The entire festival will go on from 11am-4pm

This is a cute and fun event for families or even groups of friends. Pier Village is looking to break last year’s 400-person record, and we know they can with #HipNj‘s help! 

See you there!



#HipNJ Welcomes Rocky

#HipNJ  is so excited to announce the newest furry addition to our family, Rocky!

Our very own Kenny Barilari welcomed him into his home this week,  thanks to Animal Rescue ‘R’ Us in Lodi.

Rocky is originally from Alabama, and is believed to be an Australian Shepherd and Pitbull mix. He is a very sleepy pup who loves to be held.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram as we document his growth.

National Puppy Day

National Puppy Day

Happy National Puppy Day! On National Puppy Day there are many things that you can do – you can treat your own dog but more importantly you can adopt a puppy from a local New Jersey shelter. Here are some New Jersey shelters where you can adopt a puppy locally.

Bloomfield Animal Shelter in Bloomfield

Obie is available for adoption! ? He was found as a stray last year and has been working on his manners to become a gentleman. He is a volunteer favorite for his goofy ways! He is approx 2-3 years old, altered, and UTD on vaccinations. He has beautiful eyes and a white coat with brown spots. Obie walks well on a leash and loves to play. He is very friendly with those he knows and trusts, and also gets along will with other dogs and doesn't seem to mind cats. He is a sweet boy who just needs the right home where he can get the love and attention he needs. Obie is wary of strangers at first, so anyone who is interested in adopting him will need to come for several visits to get to know each other first. He doesn't realize his size and thinks he's a lap dog, which is why he needs someone experienced to help teach boundaries, and why we don't recommend he be adopted by someone with young children. If you are a new dog owner and want to adopt Obie, you should be willing to commit to working with him with a professional trainer. Obie loves treats, which will make training easier – and fun for him! He will do best in a household that does not have frequent visitors since he needs slow introduction to new people.#adoptdontshop #newjersey #bloomfieldnj #dogs #dogsofinstgram #terrier

Hi! My name is Apollo. I am about a year old and believed to be a Cane Corso mix. Someone left me tied to a fence and the wonderful people from The Secaucus Animal Shelter came and saved me?. I look intimidating, but I am a huge love bug❤️. My first home did not properly train me, but the Secaucus Animal Shelter saw all of my potentional and sent me to a trainer for the past 4 weeks. Now I am a completley different dog and they are so proud of me ??! My ideal home would be one with children 10 years old and above(if any children at all) and recommended to be the only dog. I am very dog friendly, I just require a lot of time and attention. A home with a yard is the home for me, big dogs need room to roam! Whoever wants to love me furever should also be an experienced dog owner – someone who will stay consistent with my training. Training me is a breeze because I am very food modivated, but NOT food aggressive. I know all of my commands(sit, down, wait, come, stay, etc). I also walk very nicely on a leash and I am potty&crate trained. I love any and all toys! *Perks to love this boy included in adoption* Any questions or interest please contact The Secaucus Animal Shelter (201) 348-3213 . I am staying at my trainers house and I am available through the shelter by appointment only.
