Two elderly Brittany Spaniels had been the source of companionship and comfort to an Ocean County resident who passed away a few months ago. The owner's devotion was returned to the elderly pair as she had made special provisions for their future where they would be kept together. A close family friend had intended to keep the pair but sadly, allergies became a detriment to keeping the two dogs. Many unsuccessful attempts were made to find a home for the pair by her friend who promised that they would stay together and not be euthanized. The Society was called and agreed to take in Sierra & Jess who would stay together until a good home could be found or they could live out their lives with us. Twelve year old Sierra and 10 year old Jess are living at the Forked River Animal Care Center.
It is important that if you are interested in making special arrangements for your pets with friends, family, neighbors, etc., that provisions and arrangements be reviewed so that animals are not left with a questionable future.
The Society offers pet owners options in the event that they can no longer care for their pets. Please take a moment and check out the articles on Making Provisions for Your Pets, so your beloved animals will be safe no matter what the future brings.
