Rescued - Pets Used in Research,Scheduled to Be Killed



Pets Taken from NC Pound for Research
Were to Be Returned to Pound and Killed

The Society staffers watch the various pet alerts that come in throughout most of the Eastern half of the U.S. In some cases, we can help or refer them to other agencies, breed rescues, humane organizations, etc. Several days ago, an urgent e-mail alert came in from North Carolina in which shelter dogs are brought to a vet tech school in Gastonia, NC where they keep them for awhile and are then brought next door to the local pound where they are euthanized after a short time. All had been used to teach at the school and were going to the shelter to die.

Popcorn Park Director John Bergmann contacted them to advise that we would take the dogs and cats before they would be killed. Thanks to the kindness of a Society donor/rescuer, the animals were boarded until a transport was arranged. Sadly, many more would be brought to the vet tech school, used and then brought to the pound to be killed.

Six were "favorites" of the vet techs who advised that they have wonderful temperaments. Also included were six gentle cats and the entire crew were transported to the Society's Forked River facility. No animals at the Society were euthanized to make room for these newcomers.

Unfortunately, since the day we contacted the vet tech school and then the pound, we have received no less than 6 e-mail alerts each day -- boxers, greyhounds, beagles, poodles -- an unbelievable amount of dogs that cannot be held for more than a few days.

Each dog and cat that arrived will be given a complete veterinary check-up and will be available for adoption at Popcorn Park -- open 7 days a week for your convenience. The Society is off of Garden State Parkway, exit 74. Contact us for more information or call.
