Catch up on the biggest stories in Moorestown this week.
Town Hall has a green roof that few people know about, and MatchDog Rescue is giving dogs from Texas a new home. Catch up on everything from the past week in the Weekly Roundup.
Moorestown has a secret garden
If you walk through the main doors of Town Hall, ascend a flight of stairs and unlock a couple of doors, there is a spot in Moorestown that many people may not know about. Atop Moorestown’s Town Hall is a dense patch of greenery that serves as the municipal building’s garden. While not open to the public, the green roof plays a vital role. From providing an extra layer of insulation to attracting pollinators, the garden is currently in bloom for its fourth year.
MatchDog Rescue saving dogs from a ‘ruff’ situation in Texas
Nearly a year ago, Moorestown resident Kerry Morlino was on Facebook when she saw a friend’s post about a small dog in Texas that had been rescued from flooding and was being held in a high-kill shelter. As a result of the flooding, shelters were being inundated with animals they didn’t have room for, and dogs who would usually get to spend one day in the shelter were being euthanized immediately. Morlino said she felt compelled to help. Today, her Moorestown-based nonprofit MatchDog Rescue has brought more than 300 dogs to New Jersey from Texas that otherwise would have been euthanized.
