Suffering from Starvation, Pluto is on the Road to Recovery



The call that the Society received from this dog's owner claimed he had been sick for a few days; but she had no money; she could not bring the dog to the Society, nor pay for any veterinary care.
The Society dispatched an ambulance to the home -- it was also found that he was only kept outside.  He was brought back to the Tinton Falls Animal Care Center for intensive care.
The staff had never seen such a thin dog that was still alive. He was given immediate medical care as well as a throrough examination. He had no internal parasites, no heartworm, no parvo .... it appeared that his deplorable condition was due only to starvation. In the time immediately after his arrival, he either threw up or passed stones, glass & chicken wings  And for several weeks, while his muscles were unable to support and carry him, the staff put a harness underneath him to help him along, and so he was `walked' regularly for the first time in who knows how long by people who really cared. He was re-named Pluto - staff wanted to give him a new start and a new identity that was shaped by love rather than neglect. 

Within just a number of days, "Pluto" had gained 12 pounds. He continues to become stronger, and is currently at our Tinton Falls Animal Care Center. The quiet Hound mix would make a wonderful ... and grateful ... addition to any family.  Pluto is now available for sponsorship as a Share-A-Pet!!
Please sponsor Pluto now!
 
Please know that it is only your support that helps us pull dogs like Pluto out of the hell-ish existence they've known and into a world of health and genuine care. Our heart goes out to all those like him who languish neglected, sick and dying,and alone without a drop of love or compassion. We have plenty of that to give, but we can't do it alone. Please support our efforts and make a donation today .... for all the `Pluto's' that need us.

Note: This matter has been referred to the N. J. State SPCA for investigation and further action.
