Boogie Left in Burning Heat - No Shelter, Food, Water



The temperatures had reached triple digits and it was NJ's second hottest month.

In a backyard in Asbury Park, two pit bulls were tied up outside -- without shelter, food or water -- and the burning heat was inescapable. The male dog started digging furiously to make a hole and find some relief from the sun. The cable was caught on the fence and the dog hung himself. The female dog was in terrible condition with fly bites on the ears, extremely thin,dehydrated and in dire need of veterinary care.The owner of the dogs had a house fire and left the two dogs in someone else's care.

The Society was called to the scene by the Monmouth County animal law enforcement agency and the AHS two Animal Control Officers immediately gave food and water to the surviving dog. The Monmouth County animal law enforcement agency opted to leave both the live dog and the dead dog at the scene with the caretaker and dismissed us. It is our understanding that a cruelty complaint was signed the Monmouth County law enforcement agency for the owner/caretaker.

Five days later, the owner of the property brought the surviving female Pit Bull to the Society's Tinton Falls facility. Boogie is a 2 year old female who our veterinarian examined. The dog was found to be in poor body condition and we do not comprehend why the Monmouth County animal law enforcement agency would leave the female dog where it would appear she had not received any sustenance or care. Boogie has since been spayed, and has been transformed into a loving, beautiful, healthy dog. Thanks to continued donations to the Society's Res-Q Fund it allows our staff to take care of all of the necessary vet care for needy animals such as Boogie. Please donate to our Res-Q Fund today.

For more information on Boogie, call the Society at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us. The AHS is located at 2960 Shafto Road in Tinton Falls. We are open 7 days a week for your convenience.
