EDGEWATER, N.J. — Dressed-up dogs will parade down the "Woofstock" red carpet at City Place in Edgewater on Sept. 12 to help save themselves and others from being euthanized.
Now in its second year, the pet- and family-friendly event to benefit Pet ResQ will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the west end of the promenade.
Pet ResQ was founded by Robyn Urman, a Tenafly hair dresser with a passion for pooches who more often than not pulls from her pocket to rescue, house and care for the canines.
"The whole idea is to get people to adopt a pet," said Erik Bucci, publicist and event coordinator for City Place.
The program will feature several dogs ready to be rescued, as well as a showcase of local pet-centric businesses.Then there's the Pooch Parade, during which some of Bergen County’s most fashionable pups strut their stuff to live music, with prizes. There will also be "pup-parazzi" snapping photos.
