Pet chip/vaccine clinic and pumpkin toss planned in Edgewater Park
EDGEWATER PARK — The Organic Green Cafe at 1101 Cooper St., owned by Bill and Carole Moore, is hosting its annual pumpkin toss and an ID chip and vaccine clinic, sponsored byr the Burlington County SPCA, from 1 to 3 p.m., rain or shine, on Tuesday, Nov. 11.
The cost is $10 for a rabies, distemper and bordatella vaccine; microchipping is $25.
Visitors are invited to bring their pumpkins to the cafe rather than discard them. They can be carved or painted, and will serve as food for the Moores’ home for wayward farm animals. The animals eat the discarded pumpkins for Vitamin C over the winter, and the hard skin helps keep their teeth clean.
Prizes will be awarded for distance and accuracy in two categories: children under age 10 and adults. Prizes include a waffle party for four for children and a free evening at the Whitebriar Bed and Breakfast next door for adults.
Also, vendors of used and new crafts and salable items are welcome to set up tables for free at the Corner of Cooper and Green streets. To reserve a space or for more infromation, call 609-871-9555 or 609-433-7979.
