It was a classic early
summer day in New Jersey -- hot and humid -- but
that didn't melt the beautiful cake, or dampen the spirits of our
canine and human guests at GRRI's 2nd Annual Reunion.
The Reunion is our way
of saying THANK YOU to our adopters, and for our volunteers, one
of the nicest parts of the day is getting to mingle
with the happy endings we've helped to create ... to meet
the people we've spoken to during the applications and
and see how happy they are with their new adopted friends ...
and to see the dogs we've helped along the way ... the ones
who were sad, or thin, or fat, or sickly, or neglected, or
abused, or unkempt, or lonely, or hyper, or untrained, or merely just
unwanted ... and who are now loved, and healthy and wagging on the end
of a new leash on life.
At the close of a very
hot but happy day, the only thing GRRI volunteers could hope for
that our guests had as much fun as we did!
Thank you Eileen McFadden and Donna Pollifrone for
brilliantly organizing the event AGAIN this year (check
out last year!).
Thank you as well to the many
other volunteers who brought excellent goodies and helped
orchestrate the day so perfectly at the park.
And our special thanks,
of course, to our wonderful adopters, who have done so well
by their 4 legged pals.
Now its time for the
photos! There are 53 of them ... so please give the
rest of this page a bit of time to load!
We hope to see all of you
again next year!
Thanks to GRRI
