Proceeds from the Dinner and Tricky Tray Event will benefit Home for Good Dog Rescue. Home for Good is a volunteer and foster based, 501(c)(3) non-profit dog rescue organization. Their mission is to rescue, nurture and place homeless dogs into loving homes for good. Funding for the organization comes solely from individual donations, fundraisers and other private contributors. Home for Good Dog Rescue does not receive government funds. Monies are used for transportation, medical care, food and other supplies.

Since their founding in August 2010, Home for Good has successfully placed over 2,500 dogs into permanent loving homes. The organization is run by dedicated professionals who volunteer their time and resources to help homeless dogs in need. They rely heavily on their foster program, which provides temporary housing and a loving family environment until the dogs are adopted into their forever homes. Home for Good provides veterinary care and all food and supplies while the dog is in foster care.

Dogs available for adoption are posted on their website, homeforgooddogs.org. Adoption events are held at various pet supply stores in the Essex, Morris and Union County area on weekends. All upcoming events can be found on their website.
