Being an inner-city shelter, we would hope that the animals that eke out survival in this city would get a brief respite during the holiday season. But sadly, our doors are open 365 days a year and there is no peace nor compassion and concern for the helpless that look to humans for help.
See the progress the puppies have made
A mother Pug and her two 3 month old pups were found as "strays" and brought to us on Friday just as the local residents were busy as New Year's revelers welcoming in the New Year. But to these hopeful animals, they were not embraced or accepted -- just given up after being medically neglected. The young pups have mange which causes intense biting and scratching, leaving the animals in a miserable condition. The Society has a Res-Q Fund for such cases which require intensive and prolonged medical care. Your donation to this Fund will help us to continue to keep our doors open to such needy animals. The Pugs will be available for adoption as soon as the veterinarian gives a release on their care.
Take a look at the Pug family now! (Feb.10, 2012)
They are at the Society's Newark animal shelter at 124 Evergreen Ave. in Newark, open 7 days a week for your convenience. For more information, contact us and refer to File 106830, 106829 and 106828.
