TIME: Sunday, June 9, 11am – 3pm
PLACE: Battleship New Jersey, Camden Waterfront, NJ
DETAILS: The Battleship New Jersey is teaming up with animal shelters from throughout the region to offer
pet adoption information and have pets available for area veterans to adopt on Sunday, June 9 from
11am to 3pm on the ship’s Fantail (tented rear deck). Expected animal shelters participating
in this event include Burlington County Animal Alliance, Burlington County Animal Shelter,
The Cat’s Meow, Beacon Animal Rescue, The Animal Adoption Center, Furrever Friends Rescue,
Sherry’s Place Rescue , and the Pennsauken Animal Hospital and Urgent Care.
All shelters will have information for veterans on pet adoptions to take home and many of the
shelters will bring dogs, cats and other pets aboard the Battleship’s fantail for vets – and guests
touring the Battleship – to meet and hopefully adopt!
Admission to the fantail for the Veterans Pet Adoption event is free to veterans. Guests touring the
Battleship on Sunday, June 9, are welcome to meet the pets on the fantail.
