JACKSON – The first “June Jamboree and Family Fun Day” to be hosted by the Northern Ocean County Animal Facility, 615 Freemont Ave., Jackson, is scheduled to take place from 1-4 p.m. June 22.

Guests may dress up their pets in party attire and let them strut their stuff by entering the pet costume parade. Prizes and ribbons will be awarded in a variety of categories, according to a press release. There will also be games and contests for people and pets.

The event will get underway at 1 p.m. and the costume parade will start at 1:30 p.m. Anyone wishing to enter their pets in the parade is asked to arrive at 1 p.m. to

The Ocean County Sheriff’s Department will present a K-9 demonstration. Sheriff’s officers and their K-9 partners will educate guests about the jobs the service canines perform and the special bond between the officers and the dogs, according to the press release.

“The ‘June Jamboree’ will also have dozens of cats, kittens and dogs ready for permanent loving homes,” said Daniel E. Regenye, Ocean County Health Department Public Health Coordinator. “We have so many lovable pets for adoption that will just melt your heart.”

The facility in Jackson is open seven days a week and every pet adoption includes
spaying/neutering, micro-chipping, age appropriate vaccinations and a health exam by the
shelter veterinarian.
