Spring Lake Library to host pet festival on Saturday


SPRING LAKE — The Spring Lake Public Library will host its fifth annual Pet Festival this coming weekend, featuring adoptable pets and services for pet owners.

The festival will be held on Saturday, May 22 from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., weather permitting, on the lawn of the Community House located at 1501 Third Ave.

The first pet festival was held in 2017 after an organization reached out to the library with the idea for an event focused on pets.


“It just seemed like such a great idea and we have such a beautiful location. It’s been so successful,” Spring Lake Library Director Janet Boldt said. “Each year it builds on itself and each year has been more successful than the year before.

“People just love showing off their pets, and bringing them and interacting with other pet lovers,” Ms. Boldt said.

Saturday’s event will feature organizations, including Tails of Hope and Marty’s Place, who will have pets onsite that will be available for adoption.

Atlantic Veterinary Hospital in Spring Lake Heights will also have a tent set up along with the Monmouth County Regional Health Commission, which will be at the event offering free rabies shots for cats and dogs
