Find your “Furr-ever Bestie” at Stella of New Hope


For those looking to add another furry companion to the family or become a first-time paw-rent, Stella of New Hope, a modern American restaurant named after the owner’s beloved rescued Pitt Bull, is hosting a dog adoption event in conjunction with Animal Alliance, a New Jersey nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating homeless animals, from 3:30-5 p.m. Sunday, May 26.

Those interested in adding a furry friend to the family can head to the grassy knoll along the Riverfront Promenade directly next to the restaurant to meet adoptable pups and give them all much needed love. Attendees can even fill out adoption papers on the spot after meeting their future four-legged family member.

Those interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP at

After the event, attendees can head to Stella of New Hope for dinner and drinks. Stella of New Hope has an ongoing partnership with Animal Alliance. Every guest who dines at the restaurant receives information for an adoptable dog in the hopes of re-homing animals in the New Hope-Lambertville area. Reservations for Stella of New Hope are always encouraged and can be made on OpenTable.
