SUMMIT, NJ - Home for Good (HFG), a non-profit dog rescue based in Summit / Berkeley Heights will be hosting its third annual Bark-A-Que on Sept. 7 at the Village Green from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Since its inception in August 2010, Home for Good has adopted more than 2,000 dogs to loving homes. Home for Good reached the milestone of their 2,000th adoption in the beginning of this month, and will celebrate the milestone at this year’s Bark-A-Que.

The Bark-A-Que will be fun-filled day featuring tricky tray prizes, a super 50/50 raffle, dog adoptions, contests, children’s activities, vendors, food and live-entertainment, photos with your pet and more.  Families will receive dog goody bags (valued at $25) with a $5 donation.  Attendees can visit the microchip clinic, where a veterinary technician will be inserting microchips for $35, which includes the microchip, insertion and enrollment in a recovery service.

Families can learn the latest tips on dog manners from certified behavioral trainers.  Pet owners can show off their dog's talent to compete for contest prizes.  Each Home for Good adopted dog gets an “I was rescued by Home for Good Dog Rescue” bandana to show off their HFG pride.  Previous adopters come back with their adopted dogs to meet the other dogs and to seek out their siblings, and Foster families enjoy coming to the Bark-A-Que to see their former Foster pups.  Home for Good’s adopted canines and their owners are invited to march at the Adopter Dog Parade, with the most fashionably-attired dogs being crowned as “Mr. and Mrs. Bark-A-Que.”

Contact events@hfgdr.org for more information on how to become involved with the Third Annual Bark-A-Que.  All monies raised will directly help HFG continue its mission of saving the lives of innocent dogs.
