The Society is always watching the internet for alerts on many of the heart wrenching stories that need a boost to assist in a foster, rescue, adoption, etc.
When we saw the initial alerts on Greg, we forwarded them to many other groups who might be able to help with this urgent request. The young male pit bull was found as a stray in Camden and was brought to the Camden County Animal Shelter (CCAS) . After over 3 months at CCAS, no one had come forward to help with the blind dog.
The Society contacted CCAS and offered to take him into our facility -- perhaps a change of location and visitors may prompt the possibility of a new home. According to their volunteers, Greg is a happy boy; friendly and loves everyone he meets. He is most likely housebroken, knows "sit", loves toys, walks well on a leash and displays no food aggression. Arrangements were made to have Greg brought to our Forked River facility.
Once he arrived at Popcorn Park, we found him to be the happiest, silliest, most lovable of dogs ... but he will probably wait longer for adoption than most in our kennel because of his breed and his handicap. Greg also has a slight neurological disorder that causes him to do a "bunny hop" while walking and running. He has been to a specialist and there is no veterinary care needed for his unusual gait which is believed to be neurological. He is gentle while taking treats and toys and is so well behaved!
Popcorn Park is located on Humane Way off of Lacey Road in Forked River, off of Exit 74 of the Garden State Parkway. For more information on Greg, contact njhumane2 or call 609-693-1900 and refer to File L-21582-NM. And be sure to check out Greg's video!
Popcorn Park is open 7 days a week. Please donate to Popcorn Park so that we can continue to have an open door policy to help other animals in need.
