Where: Donaldson Park (Picnic Grove 1), South 2nd Avenue, Highland Park, NJ 08904 (Same park as previous years, but new picnic grove.)

Connect with us on social media: We’ll use #happypawsrescue on Twitter and Instagram to collect photos and memories at the picnic. Please share your own using the hashtag!

RSVP: By September 12th using the form below

Before attending the picnic, please read the Picnic Rules. We want to keep this outing fun and safe! We rely heavily on the responsibility and good judgment of the individual owners. While we love all furry friends, please only bring along well-behaved dogs that are good around children and other dogs. All dogs are required to be leashed (no retractable leashes, please) while at the picnic. All Happy Paws Rescue families and friends are welcome—with or without your dog! 

If your family is attending, you must fill out the Picnic Waiver Form at the Welcome Table upon entrance to the Alumni Picnic. Feel free to bring your own lawn chairs and/or picnic blankets as picnic tables may be limited.

We can’t wait to see you at the picnic!
