OAKLAND, NJ — Five dogs from the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge will play on the gridiron in Animal Planet's Dog Bowl II.
OAKLAND, NJ — While people were popping champagne and having fun New Year's Eve, a little dog almost died.
Life is not all chew toys and biscuits for the dogs at an animal shelter.
The kennel environment "is very loud and very stressful," said Robert Lehmann, a trustee at the Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge in Oakland. Rain and snow can keep dogs cooped up inside.
Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge, Inc. (RBARI) has long held a special place in Paramus Police Detective Glenn Pagano's heart.
In 2008, the rescue brought him his first dog, Kylie, a brindle pitbull found on the streets of Newark. At the time, Pagano wasn't looking for a dog, but he agreed to foster Kylie for RBARI.
