New Life Animal Rescue

TUCKERTON, N.J. – What’s better than helping disadvantaged pets, or having fun at a family festival? Doing both at the same time!
This weekend, “Gone to the Dogs” Craft Fair and Family Festival will benefit pets at New Life Animal Rescue, a non-profit network of foster homes based in the South Jersey and Philadelphia area.
The action-packed event will feature professional pet portraits by Expressions by Heather; a huge prize auction with over 50 high-value items; a 50/50 raffle; burgers and ice cream; vegan and vegetarian cuisine; and over 70 artists, crafts, and vendors. Children and adults alike can join in the fun with carnival-like games, pet contests, and an “Ask the Trainer” Q&A.
The "Alumni Strut" will showcase adopted pets and their new families. Adoptable pets will be on the premises, hoping to find their forever homes.
This free event will be held on Saturday, October 1st (rain date Oct. 2), from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Indian Acres Tree Farm, 111 Tuckerton Road, in Medford, NJ. Friendly, leashed dogs are welcome, but retractable leashes will not be permitted.
If you are unable to attend, prize auction tickets may be purchased at Ten tickets cost $5.00. Auction prizes include a 40-inch smart TV, signed Flyers memorabilia, and five passes to the Philadelphia Zoo.
New Life Animal Rescue rescues homeless and abandoned animals from high-kill shelters, abuse or neglect, and owners who can no longer care for them. After rescuing dogs, New Life gives them care, medical treatment, and training, before finding homes for them. New Life is made up of foster homes because they believe boarding kennels are inhumane.
