Support Liberty Humane Society


It’s my belief that rescued dogs usually make the most loyal and loving dogs you can ever own (compared to trendy “boutique” dogs).

Many unwanted dogs can find fabulous and loving homes for the rest of their lives. From professional dog walkers such as Arturo Amaya (from What’s Up Dog? – who just rescued one of over five dogs he’s saved), to my dog Oscar – who was rescued from Manhattan, to Chris Meyerink, who gave a home to Adelaide (fka MJ), one of the many dogs that were mentioned on Hoboken411.

Speaking of Chris Meyerink, he’s encouraging all animal lovers to sponsor him and Mary Kelly to help support the Liberty Humane Society:


Please Support Us

As many of you know Adelaide came to us (after we saw her on – the premier source of local news) as a foster dog for a one night stay – that was four months ago. She’s here to stay. Neither of us can imagine a day without her. She is a mixed breed dog, we are almost sure that she is a Rhodesian RidgebackPitbull. As my mother put it: “Keep that dog away from kids, those are dangerous breeds….” Not! Two of the most loyal breeds!

Adelaide (which means nobel and kind) loves kids, adults, and small little fuzzy white dogs. Her best friend right now is Jake, a Pug (owned by the folks that run Biancamano’s Deli in Hoboken (unbelievable sandwiches!) Watching this Mutt & Jeff run together is hysterical! She might not know how big she is but she seems to understand than Jake is an 1/8th her size. (411 Editorial Note: Addy and Oscar love each other too, with crazy fun wrestling at the park and more! But I guess they don’t “see each other” that often, and aren’t considered an “item”) We have been very lucky as not only is she cute, but has a personality to back it up! Those of you that have met her know not to ask for a kiss as you will get more than one!

A great big curtsy to Lady Adelaide & her owners!

LHS is the only shelter in our area now (plus LHS is no-kill) & so worthy of support.

Wonderful Adelaide is the poster child for adopting a sheltered companion animal!

Kudos to her owners, not only for adopting her from LHS, but also for raising big bucks for LHS! Thank you!


Just to let you all know Adelaide was crowned Lady Liberty at Bark in the Park! It was a great day and LHS raised $30,000+. They can keep taking such good care of the dogs and cats that find a temporary home at this well run shelter! Go LHS!


bark in the park is always a good event! I love the Pumpkin pull. any one going?


Bark in the Park rocks. It is a hugely fun event, even if you are not a dog owner. And bravo to LHS for stepping into the breach. Adelaide looks lovely…hope I meet her soon.


very sweet, sweet dog. I never miss an opportunity to say hello, even if I have to park my truck in the middle of the street….
