Abandoned Mom and Pups Discovered in Apt.

It was only by sheer luck that someone found this frightened terrier in an abandoned apartment. With her were her four two week old pups. A pathetic, sweet lass -- shy and retiring -- who must rely on the kindness of others to survive. Luckily the maintenance man checked on the living quarters to find the little family.

He brought them to the Associated Humane Societies Newark facility for the opportunity to have a life and the love that they deserve.

Luckily, the terrier was healthy enough to care for her young ones but as soon as they arrived, mom was given plenty of food and water so that her strength would not be depleted.

The Society's need for donations to our Res-Q Fund is the lifeblood needed to keep our doors open and a welcoming nod to the many who have no where to turn.

This terrier was discovered in an apartment on Myrtle Ave. in Irvington and thus, the name "Myrtle". Mom and her 2 boys and 2 girls will be at our Newark facility for the next several weeks until all are available for adoption. There is a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who abandoned them in the apartment.

The Society is located at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, just off of Rt. 1 and 9, 3 blocks from the Elizabeth line. For more information, call the Society at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 116988 or e-mail us.
