AHS Goes the Mile to Save Smokey



Smokey is in need of some of that Irish luck, because so far, he hasn’t had much. Smokey had been the abused victim of a group of young people. AHS received an alert that stated, “I am desperate to find a home for a German Shepherd/Hound mix who is being given beer and having pot smoke blown into his nose for laughs and giggles. He is not even a year old. This dog is not neutered, no shots, and is living outside on a chain.” He had been briefly put into a caring home, but they were moving to Texas and intended to return him to the very people who abused him.

The dog was in the Fort Plain, New York area – about an hour north of Albany, and we found that the alert was sent out by an individual with a local animal group who is no longer taking in dogs for rescue. Due to a snowfall and cold, blowing winds, and knowing that Smokey was chained outside, our concern was to get the dog immediately. Thanks to Amy Schatz and her husband Joe Uggiano of Pennsylvania as they assisted by obtaining the dog and then meeting Society Director Roseann Trezza and Board Member Barbara Lathrop with Smokey.

Smokey was brought back to New Jersey where he was given all necessary inoculations, was neutered and now waits for a forever home filled with warmth, love and kindness. The 10 month old boy is housebroken, does not seem to mind other dogs or cats and would be great as a family companion. Could you be the lucky Irish charm that provides an enchanted life for a young dog who yearns to please?

Traveling miles to save a life may not be something we do every day, but to save the life of an innocent animal, the road is short. Please support our many efforts — such as saving Smokey’s life – and make a donation today.

3/19/08 - Good News! We are happy to report that Smokey was adopted!
