We love our furry friends here in New Jersey. Where else can you find a happy hour just for pups? If you adopt one of these precious pooches, or already have your own, head to
Yappy Hour at Wonder Bar in Asbury Park for a dog-gone day of fun. If kitties are more you’re style, I’ve found some of the sweetest in the state, and mixed a few teeny little lovebunnies in for good measure. Please note that all these adorable animals were found on Petfinder, where photos and personality profiles were provided by shelters and rescue groups. For more information, contact the rescue group listed or click the link below each photo.
