Neglected Mika Starting A New Life



The Society immediately dispatched an ambulance when the Neptune Police were standing by a stray ill/injured lab/pit mix. When our Animal Control Officer, Fred Jeanty, picked up the dog, a brief investigation by the ACO and Police found the owner. He was advised that he would have to take the needy animal to a veterinarian within 24 hours. He refused, stating he only had the dog for a few days and relinquished ownership to the Society.

The dog was immediately brought to Red Bank Veterinary Hospital (RBVH) in Tinton Falls for care. After a night at RBVH, the Society picked her up the next morning and brought her to our Tinton Falls Medical Dept. to be given fluids and continued care.

The Society was advised by the Neptune owner, who gave us a false name and information, that he only had the dog a few days. A further investigation of adjacent neighbors revealed that this dog had been with him for several months. The 11 month old dog we call “Mika” was emaciated, pregnant and in need of additional and continual care.

Her health has improved and she was recently spayed. Her life at her home in Neptune was pathetically meager; no loving relationship so it was just as easy to let the dog run loose …. hoping to be free of any responsibility. What is even more despicable is that some time in her young life, she had broken a leg which was never fixed. Mika needs and deserves the loving support she never had in the short time she has been on earth. File TF-67717-SF (Tinton Falls).
