New Year Brings a New LIfe



An animal lover named Beth drove to evening Rosh Hashanah services at a historic temple in Newark.  As she was parking, she noticed that a pit bull stood on the sidewalk at the entrance to the temple.  When she walked to the temple's entrance, she was surprised to find a woman who had locked herself behind a gate in fear of the dog and a man trying to shoo the dog away.   

Beth intervened and took the dog to the parking lot to protect the friendly pit bull from taunts and traffic. Beth confined the dog in the parking lot and notified us after services.  In spite of the late hour, around 11pm, we sent an emergency driver to rescue the dog.

Pitbull Dog, L'Chaim, File 75773-MNicknamed L'Chaim ("to life") by Beth on the holiday when Jews hope to be inscribed in the Book of Life, the dog is the color of honey (traditionally eaten on Rosh Hashanah to represent a sweet new year) and has a temperament to match.  We found that L'Chaim had wounds on both ears and an old break of the tail.  We have treated her injuries and had her temperament tested.  She was found to be an affectionate companion who is as sweet as honey.  She exhibits no food/toy aggression or guarding behavior, sharing any worldly possessions.
 
If you, or anyone you know, would like to adopt L'Chaim, please contact us or visit L'Chaim at our Newark shelter to perk up her life...knowing her will surely improve yours!  If you can't adopt, please help defray the cost of L'Chaim's care by making a donationFile 75773-M (Newark)
