Cuddly ventures is delighted to announce the celebration of our 2 year anniversary of officially being in business!

Congratulations to Our St. Peter's 'Town and Gown' Team!

Since January, we've been participating in the 'Town and Gown' program, a collaboration between St. Peter's University and the Hudson County Chamber of Commerce.

And with the semester ending, last night was the presentation competition, with each student team presenting their findings to a panel of judges from the Chamber of Commerce. We're so excited and happy to report that our students won! Our team (Jonathan Vasquez, Elissa Rojas, and Diego Manosalvas) did...

Let Us Help Pick Up Your Dog's Poop!

Let's talk about poop for a minute - it's a big deal for us. Earlier this year, Kimberley and I sponsored a Pet Waste Station in our hometown of Hoboken, NJ. The City of Hoboken installed the station, and in exchange we'll keep it stocked with poop bags open to the public. And we were happy to do it! Our Pet Waste Station is on Hudson Street, between 10th and 11th Dog poop is a real public health issue, and one that every responsible dog owner should take to heart. Besides being an unpleasant nuisance for your neighbors, especially in an urban...
