Meet Willie and Ray, two 5 year old buddies that have been through quite a tough time together. Willie, (white Boxer), and Ray, (black Jack Russell/Boxer mix), were living in Tennessee. Their owner chained them in the backyard and abandoned them. They were nearly starved to death when a neighbor noticed them and called the authorities. Willie and Ray were seized from the home and their owners were brought up on several charges of animal cruelty. They were convicted of animal neglect.
Popcorn Park was contacted to see if we could take the pathetic pair. They arrived in New Jersey and jumped out of their transport cages with tails wagging. We were shocked to see how skinny these two babies were. They are the most loving, gentle, affectionate and appreciative boys ... they just love everyone and love each other, so we are looking for a home where they can stay together forever. Please consider opening your heart and home to these well-deserving little boys!
We could hardly believe they could walk- let alone meet the staff like they were out having the time of their lives! These boys obviously love each other and they have been kenneled together their entire stay since they came to us in February. We would have expected with the poor shape they came in that they would be food aggressive, but we have witnessed none. Willie, (the white one), always lets Ray, (the black one), eat first - it's their habit. When visitors walk through, the pair runs to greet them with tails wagging and happy smiles. We are humbled by the fact that they still trust humans and want to be loved after all they have endured.
For more information on Willie and Ray, call the Society at 609-693-1900 or e-mail us. If you'd like to visit, they can be seen at the Society's Popcorn Park shelter, located off Lacey Road in Forked River, just off Exit 74 of the Garden State Parkway. You can also help by contributing to their care ... a donation to our Res-Q Fund helps us to help them.
