Rags - Bedraggled Cocker Spaniel Tied under Bridge



It was by chance that someone noticed a bedraggled dog tied underneath a railroad bridge in the industrial area of Newark. Thankfully, a passerby called the Associated Humane Societies to report this tragic, solitary figure. Animal Control Officer Orlando Delgado arrived with an AHS ambulance to find the dog tied by a shoe lace. Underneath the clumps of dirty, soaked matted hair was a very needy and appreciative Cocker Spaniel.

The male dog was immediately brought in for a much-needed spa day & then off to the Medical Dept. where badly infected ears are now being treated. Because of his initial arrival, we call the 3 year old gent "Rags".

There isn't a day that goes by that we don't scratch our heads with another victim that comes through our door. The lack of a caring, responsible owner seems to be scarce and thankfully, the AHS has an open door policy to take in the forgotten animals that seemed to have been left on their own. We are also there to respond to emergency situations where animals are in crisis.

There have been pounds/shelters within NJ that are not adhering to the regulations promulgated by the NJ Dept. of Health and Human Services. The towns that have cancelled AHS have complained that the AHS Animal Care and Control Contract is too expensive. Many of those towns have switched to animal services that are woefully inadequate.Not only are the towns being shortchanged in their services, it is the animals that suffer and are neglected. AHS is there to continue to help these animals because animal control is not just about stray cats and dogs and we cannot stand by as these animals are not given vet care when injured or sick. Neglect is cheap and kindness is costly.

Thanks to you, donors to the Res-Q Fund, we will continue to help animals. Please make a donation to our Res-Q Fund and help Rags and many more in need. For more information on Rags, call the AHS at 973-824-7080 or e-mail us and refer to 127076.
