Damsel - Emaciated Weimaraner in Distress Rescued



We can only surmise what may have happened to an unwanted dog abandoned to die. The young Weimaraner mix may have been someone's companion -- but for whatever reason, they deserted her at Eagle Rock Reservation. Since the reservation encompasses over 400 acres of forest preserve and recreational park, she was lost and alone in a huge, strange unpopulated area.

She may have tried to exist in this unfamiliar world but it was an impossible task. She was hungry, cold and saw no relief in sight. When it became a frightening reality that was too much to handle, she laid down in the leaves and prepared to die ....

The Essex County Sheriffs Dept. had officers patrolling much of the remote areas of the reservation. When the Essex County Sheriff's Dept. saw the bundle of bones just laying there, they contacted the Associated Humane Societies to rescue the emaciated dog. The cold nights were also devastating to her health and well being. When she arrived at the Society's Newark shelter, she was immediately brought to the Medical Dept. where she needed to have her "batteries re-charged". Luckily, she has no major health issues as far as we are presently aware. She just needs a little R & R. Thanks to the donations of our contributors, we will continue to help the needy animals that come through our doors.

For more information on Damsel, call the Society at 973-824-7078 and refer to File 124923. You can also e-mail us. The Society is open 7 days a week for your convenience.
