YOUR BRIEFS: DOGS INVITED TO JOIN PARADE, PREPARING FOR ROAD TRIP
DOGS INVITED TO JOIN ASBURY PARK’S JULY FOURTH PARADE
Dogs and their owners have been invited for the second year to participate in Asbury Park’s Fourth of July Parade.
“Last year we had about 15 dogs of all sizes that walked the entire route and a few more that joined in along the way,” said Amy Quinn, owner of dogs Baily and Lance with her partner Heather Jensen. “It was such a hit that parade organizers decided to do it again this year.”
Leashed dogs and their owners should meet at the corner of Sewall and Grand Avenues between 12.15 pm and 12.30 pm on Saturday. The parade will travel west on Cookman Avenue to Main Street. Then walk Main Street north turning east on Fifth Avenue, ending at Kingsley Avenue.
“It’s a slow stroll and a really fun way to see your neighbors and enjoy the parade,” said Amy. “The weather should be great so don’t forget to bring some water for your dog.”
Brian Watkins, Asbury Park resident and dedicated founder of Rescue Ridge animal shelter – a “last chance” shelter for dogs will be on-hand during the festivities with a few wonderful, loving dogs in need of a great home like yours. Rescue Ridge and its unwaivering team of animal lovers is an amazing organization. More to come about the shelter in future columns.
“How great would it be if someone adopted a dog on the Fourth of July,” said Amy.
