Penny-Emaciated, Left in MD Shelter Drop Box



Society staffers are always on the alert for special cases of animals that have never had a decent break. The sad story and pathetic picture of this dog named Penny touched our hearts.

Penny was dumped in a night-drop box at a shelter in Maryland. An animal lover happened to pull into the shelter, and noticed a severely emaciated dog inside the box. She took the dog out, wondering if she was even alive. She was skin and bones, with open sores all over her. Suddenly, the dog stood up and crawled to the woman, tail wagging vigorously, and into her lap ... she was indeed alive!

She had obviously suffered abuse and neglect, yet was incredibly friendly and happy to see someone. The woman, Betsy, took the dog to an emergency vet where it was determined that the dog suffered from severe emaciation, so much so that her skin actually began to break down. They began treatment, and advised Betsy they would send the dog to the Charles County Humane Society, a no-kill shelter. Following up, Betsy found they considered Penny unadoptable and were sending her back to Tri-County where she would most likely be euthanized.Betsy immediately started networking to secure a future for Penny.

When we read Penny’s heartbreaking story, we had to help her. Betsy transported Penny to the NJ state line to meet us. Betsy said a tearful goodbye and Penny leapt into our car to start her new life.

We LOVE this angel already. Despite all she’s been through, Penny is sweet, loving, and so happy. She will be put up for adoption as soon as she is well enough. Thank you Betsy for saving Penny; we’ll find her a home where she’ll never be tossed away again. File L-21298-F (Forked River).

If interested in adopting Penny, please contact us, call us at (609) 693-1900 or come visit!
