Chester of Linden

chester of linden

Chester didn't deserve the treatment he received from his family back in October, 2019, nor did he deserve to be neglected so badly throughout his life, but this gentle giant doesn't let anything get him down.  When Chester's family no longer wanted him, they brought him to our Newark facility and claimed to have found him as a stray.  Chester was over 9 years old and he surely devoted himself to his family, only to be repaid with neglect and abandonment.

Chester was transferred to our AHS/Popcorn Park location, where he underwent extensive medical treatment for a variety of conditions that were left untreated for so long.  Multiple masses and diseased teeth were removed, and his severe arthritis is now being treated with not only medications, but weekly laser therapy too!

Chester is the happiest guy these days, and he positively loves his caretakers that spoil him, take him on leisurely strolls, and give him all the cuddling that he wants.  Since Chester needs to be an only pet and also needs a child-free home, it's taken longer to find the perfect home for this senior boy.  He's been added to our Share-A-Pet program so he can get lots of attention from some great sponsors while he waits.  File#42062
