Babs - Starving Mom in Desperate Need of Help



The picture of a pathetically emaciated female mix breed was sent out over the internet as an alert for someone - anyone - to help her. AHS Board Member, Barbara Lathrop, saw the existence of a dog filled with heartbreak and hopelessness at Linden Animal Control. Barbara asked our AHS Newark Director if we could help in the event no one came forward to her rescue.

The dog had been picked up as a stray in Linden with missing hair and sores over several areas of her body. What happened to her babies? She was either attempting to eke out an existence with her pups or else she may have been dumped/abandoned when her usefulness was over.

The picture and story was played out over many Facebooks -- hearts were saddened to read of her plight...but no doors were open to take her in.

AHS Executor Director contacted George Psaltis, Animal Control Officer for the Linden Animal Control who had not received any inquiries or interest about this needy stray. George had taken her to their vet & the dog was given blood tests and de-worming. For a kennel that is much too small for the number of towns they handle, they did not have the resources to hold and treat this dog. The AHS contacted George as we have the resources to make a difference in the life of this lass. Arrangements were made to pick up this very sweet lady who is about 2 years old who is now hoping to find the acceptance and love she hasn't had. Her personality is the greatest feature of this lass that someone just gave or threw away.

In honor of the Board Member who urged our assistance, we call her "Babs". The large lady was brought into our Medical Dept. and given a thorough check-up. Babs does not have mange but it is believed to be a hormonal problem. She will be receiving medicated baths frequently. Due to a purulent discharge, she will be scheduled for a spay as she may be suffering with pyometra. She just arrived today and she is already getting hugs and kisses and doggy treats -- an early Christmas present -- as it has been so long since she has had a bit of kindness shown to her.

Contributions to the Res-Q Fund and your continual generosity is what makes such rescues possible. For more information on Babs, call AHS at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 127216 or e-mail us.
