CHECK OUT OUR UPDATE BELOW!
The AHS was contacted by a repo company who were unable to repossess a vehicle due to a number of pit bulls kept under hellish conditions in the backyard of a Newark home. The Society's Assistant Director and an Animal Control Officer went to the scene and verified the broken down unusable shelters; only one igloo dog house to share -- if they could get to it -- and one bucket with frozen water and a very small bowl that we assume was meant for dog chow.
Above is Remy.
At right is JR.
The temperature hovered around 2 degrees. The owner refused to surrender the dogs and when AHS contacted the animal law enforcement, their suggestion was to have the owner put the dogs in the garage. After assessing the situation and the suggestion, AHS refused to leave until the dogs were surrendered to the Society.
A lengthy discussion ensued and the owner advised to "leave the bitch so he can continue to breed". The AHS team withstood the hours in the cold and stood on our principles. These dogs deserved better than to be left behind. J.R., Diamond and Remy are great dogs and in the process of being temperament tested and evaluated. Kay Kay is being monitored.
This is Diamond.

These four dogs were exploited, used and neglected so that their owner could keep his car safe from the repo company.
