Longport welcomes all of God’s creatures. Furry & feathered. Dogs, cats, birds, and even chubby guinea pigs.

This annual event also raises awareness and funds for the Humane Society of Ocean City, a no-kill shelter. They find homes for animals who’ve been abandoned or rescued from bad environments.

Visit their big red barn to meet the pets available for adoption. 1 Shelter Road, Ocean City, NJ. – Call (609) 398-9500
