When a Newark homeowner opened her door, she found three terrified Miniature Pinschers scampering across her lawn. It took her awhile to round them up and then the trio was brought to the AHS Newark facility.
An adult male and two 3 month old littermates were found to be in need of medical treatment as they all had ringworm. There may have been more that were abandoned at the address …. but at this time, these are the only dogs brought to the Society.
Due to the highly infectious nature of ringworm, the trio was brought to the Forked River facility where their care and handling will be kept to a minimum. The treatment is a time-consuming effort but thanks to donations to the Society's Res-Q Fund they will be made available for adoption once treatment is completed.
Trooper, Mary and Jane will be placed on the Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter Facebook page, on Petfinder and the AHS Home Page of the website once treatment has been done.
The Society has over 100 dogs at each of our shelters waiting for "a new leash on life". In addition to the Miniature Pinschers, the Society has German Shepherds, Boxers, Chihuahuas, Shih Tzus, Beagles, Lhasas, Terriers and many, many more. Popcorn Park is located on Humane Way, off Lacey Road in Lacey Township. For more information, call the Society at 609-693-1900 or e-mail us.
