Misses - Given Away through Craigs List

An attractive female Doberman is now at the Society's Forked River facility after a harrowing and distressful manner after which she is now with us.

Many pet owners who, for many reasons, must relinquish their beloved dog, cat or other animal. Craigs List has become a favorite go-to place which may not be advantageous to search for a forever home for your pet.

Misses is a 4 year old spayed female whose New York owner needed to find a new home for her dog. Due to medical problems and a new pacemaker, her owner needed to make plans for a new home for this beautiful dog.

Craigs List was the problem solver for this woman. She was contacted by an Ocean County resident who promised to give the dog a lifetime commitment. They met on the Garden State Parkway and the elderly woman entrusted her dog to someone she didn't know. The Ocean County resident had the dog for a week and she couldn't care for it and it didn't fit in with her lifestyle.

Misses is with us now and we will find someone willing to give her a "new leash on life". When you entrust your dog to a stranger, you have no knowledge as to the future of your dog. For more information on Misses, contact us or call Popcorn Park at 609-693-1900 and ask about her, File No. 20585-SF. Popcorn Park is located on Humane Way, off of Lacey Road in Forked River, (Exit 74 of the Garden State Parkway).

There are many animal shelters and responsible legitimate rescue groups that will take an unwanted pet, make arrangements to have it altered, microchipped, given all necessary inoculations and then place the animal for adoption. Such shelters ask for documentation on name, address, pets, etc. More importantly, they will take back an unwanted animal if it is not working out. We have found through our vast experience that once an animal has been adopted, there are several reasons it may need to be returned: landlord says no, allergy in the home, doesn't get along with member of the family or other pet, etc. So be sure you think of the safety and future of a pet you can no longer keep.
