Liberty Humane Society is going mobile! A new outreach program tentatively called LHS Live will be driving dogs and cats, kittens and puppies, from their facility near Liberty State Park directly into Jersey City neighborhoods, making it easier for potential adopters to spend some time with the animals so in need of a new home.
Liberty Humane Society worked with Cargo Trailer NJ in Roselle, New Jersey, to transform a motorcycle trailer into a spacious pet party bus. Curious dog and cat lovers will be able to watch from outside or walk in to pet and play with the animals. The mobile trailer will make interacting with the animals an easier and more enjoyable experience than it would be at the Liberty Humane Society facility or even in most mobile adoption units. And cozier, custom containers will give potential parents a better sense of what it would be like to have the puppy or kitten at home.
Irene Borngraeber, the Executive Director of the Liberty Humane Society, is excited to offer this new level of service to Jersey City, expecting to raise awareness and expand efforts to succeed in their mission: “To foster a community of compassion and respect, and provide animals in need with a chance at a lifelong, loving home.” Ms. Borngraeber’s unique vision for the trailer itself will also be a reflection of the diverse and artistic Jersey City community it serves.
LHS Live expects to begin their outreach in traditional settings (local markets, community events, etc.) as well as partner with both residential buildings and businesses. Either as a perk for residents or a way to lighten up the office and increase productivity, the Liberty Humane Society’s trailer could be rented and the increased exposure will surely benefit the animals as well and perhaps even result in adoption.
