There are various animal advocacy groups in the surrounding area (NY, South Jersey, Philly, etc.) but it seems that there aren't any groups that are actually located in the Northern New Jersey area so out of that was born the North Jersey Animal Advocacy Alliance
Once a month, we'll be getting together to discuss what we can do to help to bring animal issues to the forefront and plan for upcoming events. Eventually, we will be doing fund raisers/dinners for different animal sanctuaries/shelters in the area, getting booth's/ tables at flea markets, participating in events sponsored by other organizations, etc. but right now, we're focusing on gaining members and recognition.
Our first meeting held in was held at Veggie Heaven in Denville, NJ on March 21st and was quite successful. We've put together some great ideas and are starting to move forward with them. Our second meeting is scheduled for Saturday, April 18
and is a pot luck dinner at a members house in Riverdale, NJ. Any new members are welcome to join us! We will be going over what we discussed at the last meeting at the beginning of this meeting as well.
