Check out these local pets who have been keeping their humans company while they are {still} working from home {and check back every Monday for some new furry faces — please submit your pets with a blurb about them to hello@hobokengirl.com}:

Arielle is a born-and-bred Jersey girl and like a true NJ native, half her diet consists of bagels and the other half pizza. As a graduate of both American University and City, University of London, she’s been a passionate writer ever since she wrote her first “book” in the first grade. When she’s not furiously typing away at her keyboard, she spends her time ticking places off of her “to travel to” list, trying any and all new foods, and trying to stop herself from spending too much money at Zara.
